Hi, and thank you for visiting my blog! I am Sarah - and I love cakes - baking, decorating, and eating of course! I have always enjoyed baking and sharing sweet treats with family and friends. Now I have started my business "Sweet Cakes" so that I can share my cakes with everyone. Please look at the cakes that I have been making and feel free to email me or call me with any questions. A custom cake can make every event more special - a birthday, a holiday, a company party, a baby shower...anything!

Sam's Firetruck Cake

For Sam's birthday his mom wanted a firetruck cake. Sam's favorite color is yellow, so I was asked to make his firetruck yellow. I started by creating the truck out of cake & frosted all the pieces together, cut, and then designed (with my husband's help). Next I made the bottom layer of cake - both were buttercream yellow. This cake required some minor 'engineering' skills, so I was happy to have my husband around. It was a fun cake to make!

Ava's Cake Pops

For Ava's birthday, her mom choose to give cake pops as party favors. I love this idea! I made her chocolate pops with vanilla chocolate coating and purple sprinkles. I heard they were a big hit!

Avery's Princess Cake - Rapunzel "Tangled"

I made my daughter's birthday cake with 3 layers - chocolate, butter cream, and traditional yellow. This cake was made with the doll frosted inside the cake - which can double as a gift for the birthday girl! The cake was frosted in buttercream icing and then topped off with a fondant dress. Cute, right?

Cake pops were made as party-favors. I used vanilla cake and vanilla frosting, then the outside coating is a chocolate (candy coating). Then top of with coordinating sprinkles, a bag & a ribbon.
