OCCASION: Graduation FLAVOR: White Cake with Green Sprinkles
I made this cake for my best friend Alan, who recently graduated from high school. Our school colors are green, black, and white, and he will be attending the University of Maryland next year. I decided that rather than making a traditional graduation-themed cake, I would personalize it by showing his transition from a Raider to a Terrapin.
I made this cake for some of my friends after an inside joke we had about hangman. I made one of each letter so that everyone in our class could (try) to play a real game with it. This would have worked, except people kept eating the letters! Still, I like the idea of having interactive cupcakes.
OCCASION: Religious Education Class FLAVOR: Funfetti
I made this cake for the last meeting of my religious education class. I came up with the expression after one of our meetings, and I thought it seemed encouraging. Although this isn't my usual style, I still wanted to feature it on the site.
Sorry it's taken so long! I've been having computer troubles, but here's the latest cake! Due to popular request, I have replaced my usual foil with plain white posterboard. Also, I will provide more description for each cake in my posts. This cake was for my brother's 24th birthday. It's a big inside joke in our family that he wants to have a baby giraffe, so it seemed entirely appropriate. I used yellow cake with mini chocolate chips so it had a giraffe effect inside and out.
Thank you to everyone who has given me support, advice, and feedback in the last few weeks! It really means so much to me!

I started baking cakes when I was 12 years old. At first, I would just play around with different shaped Wilton pans and experiment with making my own flavors. I've never had professional lessons, I just kind of taught myself things--I don't do things the typical way, but I'm proud of the methods I've invented. Every cake is a new learning experience for me.
