Sweet 16 and more cake!

My cousins daughter turned Sweet 16

I really just don't know where the time goes but I do know that she is maturing into a beautiful & sweet young lady.

My cousin asked if I would make a cake for her family birthday dinner & I because I knew I would have so much fun making her cake, I agreed.

All she said was that she wanted a round chocolate cake & that I could do whatever I wanted for the rest.

So I decided on a chocolate cake with butter cream frosting & a chocolate ganache over the top. Because I mean seriously........ who DOESN'T like ganache, right?? ya that's what I thought too~

I was pleased with the outcome & the Mr. said "who knew we had a pastry chef in the house"

Which made me feel quite nice because that to me means my cake looked just as good as one you would buy in a bakery (tasted like it too)
Here is the birthday girl with her cake
(isn't she the cutest)

Here is a closer look of the cake with the paper Lolli-pops I made for her topper. I liked using the paper lollies because they were fun & lets face it...doesn't everyone like stuff with their own name on it haha, I know I am guilty~

and here is the paper Sweet 16 banner I made for her so she would have a memento :)
and because I like making them so I guess you can say I seized the opportunity

So Happy I caught the reaction of a 16 year old who really likes the gift you got her...........very priceless!

I love that I can incorporate my creations into everyday life and in turn make other people happy in the process.


  1. You did a great job on that cake, wish I would have taken an extra piece for later. And yep, she did love those boots!!!! You were right...again.

    love you.

  2. Yes, a great looking cake, and thank you...feel like I was almost there.

  3. The cake looks amazing! Beautiful party!
