    Being a self taught baker I have had a lot of fails but I’ve also had plenty of successes.
    Over the years I have improved a lot and it shows in the cakes I’ve create.



    Here are some of my favorites:
    I did this Nightmare Before Christmas inspired cake and cupcakes for my nephew’s birthday a couple years ago.

    This is the Minnie Mouse cake I made in August for my niece’s birthday.

    This is the cake I made for my sisters baby shower last year. I absolutely love this one.

    Then the Spongebob cake and Krabby Patty cupcakes for my niece.

    My eldest nephew who just turned sixteen wanted a car show cake and while it’s a simple cake I love how it looks.

    And finally the beach themed cake I made for my Aunt Valarie. 100D31D7-853B-422F-8BAA-CBC5DF3918A6.jpeg


    These are just some of my favorites.
    How about yours???

    Ooh this thread is a great idea! I always love seeing your cakes, you're so creative :) Those Krabby Patty cupcakes are amazing! How did you make the 'lettuce'?

    Here are some of mine from the past few years, I was pleased with how they all turned out.

    Cookies and cream cake for Ian's birthday:

    For the lettuce on the Krabby Patty cupcakes I used shredded coconut that I dyed with a bit of green food coloring.

    And your cakes look amazing. That lemon cake. Wow. It looks delicious!
    Black Forest cake is one of my favorites. I love the combination of a chocolate cake with cherries.
    My mom used to make Black Forest cake for my eldest sister Laura every year for her birthday. She always made it in a bundt pan. She put canned cherry pie filling in the bundt cake pan then the cake batter on top and baked it. She always topped it with whipped cream and put it in the freezer. I’m not really sure why but it was always so good.

    That's really clever, it looks so real!

    It was really tasty! It actually has two whole lemons cooked into the cake. Recipe here if you're interested: https://www.bbc.com/food/recipes/whole_lemon_cake_with_40866
