Mom's Day Cheesecake

Happy Mothers Day! I wanted to do something special for my mom on Mothers Day and I knew she loved Cheesecake so thats what i did. I found this recipe online and It was really good. I dont think it was the perfect cheesecake recipe, but im getting very close.
The strawberries, my sister helped me with. She wanted to show me what she learned working at a chocolate store, so those are dipped and designed by her. They sure tasted delicious

Somewhere over the Rainbow

I asked a co-worker what kind of cake he would like me to make him. And all he said was that he liked rainbows. Ofcourse when he said this, I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do for him. I didnt want to put a rainbow on top of the cake and call it a day so it took me a while but then it came to me. The inside of this cake was so interesting. this was the rainbow that he wanted.
Later, trying to asseemble everything, I ran into lots of problems but it finally came together and he loved his cake. When I do birthday cakes for people at work, They are impressed and they love everything about them. I am glad I get to enjoy baking and creating art for people and their reactions say it all. Its the freatest part about this for me.

Ice Cream You Scream

Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream with a chocolate chip cookie with chocolate chips surrounding it. This is my first ice cream cake. It tasted so delicious... ofcourse, since it has ice cream in it. This cake didnt take very long at all to make. It was a cake that I made for a co-worker. She was nice enough to share it with everyone and they seemed to be pretty impressed with the taste. I was happy with it.

Pretty in Pink

In my class, we worked with royal icing and sugar cookies instead of a cake. She taught us how to make drop flowers. and I didnt think they looked finished with just the icing, and so i added pearl sugar beads that completed the look. They turned out beautiful.

Sand on the Beach

This is the beach inspired cake that I did for a birthday party. It took long hours but It was worth it. The flowers are edible but the seashells are not. This cake is a yellow-butter cake with a chocolate buttercream filling and white buttercream frosting. I had also made cupcakes that went along with this. It seemed to be a big hit at the party. and I am very proud of it.
