Little Pirate Birthday Cake! {Gluten Free}

gluten free pirate cake 3

This little birthday cake was so much fun to make!  It was a six inch round cake with three layers of gluten free chocolate fudge cake filled with fresh strawberries and covered with chocolate buttercream.  Yum yum yum.  I also made a dozen matching chocolate fudge cake pops with sprinkles!

The little birthday boy had a Pirate themed party so he told his Mama he wanted a skull and cross bones and a butterfly on top of his cake.  Lol.  Four year olds are so much fun!  I made the little decorations out of my favorite fondant (Satin Ice) which is gluten free, dairy free, and nut free.  I made sure the little butterfly had a little eye patch and bandana to go along with the pirate theme!

His Mom told me the cake and pops were a hit at the party!  Yes!  I tell you, gluten free can be amazingly delicious!  😉   So keep in mind that I am taking custom orders within Pacifica, CA and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area!

Mardi Gras Cake! {Gluten Free}

Mardi Gras Cake 2014

Today is Fat Tuesday so I thought it appropriate to share my latest cake creation – a two-tiered Mardi Gras cake!  The bottom tier is gluten free chocolate fudge cake with fluffy vanilla buttercream and fresh sliced strawberries.  The top is gluten free vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream mousse and homemade butterscotch.  YUM!  The mask was handmade by yours truly with gumpaste, candy pearls, and lots of edible glitter.

Laissez les bon temps rouler!  Let the good times roll!

Gluten Free Smurf Birthday Cake!

 

Smurf Sheet Cake

I had such a blast making this gluten free smurf themed birthday cake back in December!

The cake was a chocolate fudge half sheet with creamy vanilla (smurf blue!) buttercream.  I made two fondant 2-D smurfs by hand and drew on their features with edible ink.  SO so much fun!  Isn’t Smurfette such a beauty? Making 2-D fondant characters may be one of my new favorite cake decorating techniques! I also added lots of edible glitter on all of the fondant flowers.  What birthday girl doesn’t like glitter?

Gluten Free Pecan Coffee Cake

Pecan Coffee Cake

You won’t be able to resist this Pecan Coffee Cake.  So buttery.  So cinnamon-y.  So melt-in-your-mouth perfect.  Both gluten free and gluten-eaters love this cake!  I sell it by the slice at Here Comes the Sun Coffee House and it sells out every week.  You can also order your very own large coffee cake (with 15 slices!) for $20!
