Neapolitan ice cream is one of those things where the best flavors in the world are put together...and we are able to enjoy them all in one bowl!

My newest cupcake addition does the exact same thing- and, you can even eat in a bowl, if you'd like!

Pauline's Wedding Cake

A great friend from high school recently got back in touch with me through Facebook. Although living only about an hour from each other, we haven't seen or talked much since the summer after high school graduation. Well, just a few short months ago she was looking for a wedding cake vendor and found out I'm a designer...so, we met for a cake tasting and there we decided on the flavors and design concept.

She has always been a super unique chic...so, I knew working with her would be a blast! And, I wasn't wrong- as you can see from what we came up with:

This is a sketch using my Wedding Cake Design Software that enables my clients to view their special occasion cake before the big day. It has become a great tool in designing exactly what he or she may want.

And, here is a picture of the actual cake at my couple's reception on April 17th:

A 4 tier Charleston Style Pound Cake covered in Ivory Buttercream with Black Fondant detailing. She and her fiance (well, as of about 30 minutes ago, husband!) decided to go with fresh Strawberry Preserve filling for the largest tier, Vanilla Cream Cheese filling for the next size and Mocha Buttercream filling for the small tier. The top (which they will keep for the 1 year anniversary) is also filled with the brides favorite, Vanilla Cream Cheese. The flowers were of ivory, peach and coral hues, which were chosen by the bride and placed by the florist.

Our cake was sooooooooo yummy! I really don't want to wait a year to eat the top part, but I guess I will have to!!!!!!!

beautiful! One of the bridesmaid's is going to call you to place an order for some events she is going to have! G.M. Florence, SC

This was the absolute most unique wedding cake I've ever done...which was a refreshing break from the norm! I had such a great time with this cake...from the planning stages right up until taking the pictures! Thank you so much Pauline and Levi for letting me be apart of your special and beautiful day!

13th Birthday...GoNe WiLd!

One of the cutest and most talented girls I know turned 13 a few weeks ago and had her party this past weekend. She wanted a zebra print cake with a hot pink bow to serve her guests at the birthday celebration in the park!

After looking over the the flavors'
menu, she opted for vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream on both tiers- one with my tart lemon curd filling and the other with my fresh raspberry preserve filling. The bow and decorations are all made of marshmallow fondant.

I absolutely love how this cake turned out...just perfect for 13 year old girl! The best thing in the world is delivering a cake that's exactly what my client wanted. Here's a shot of it on her table scape.

Thank you so much for making this for my party!!!!! IT WAS SO GOOD! K.F. Myrtle Beach, SC

Everything...But The Kitchen Sink!

I am a HUGE fan of Cupcake Project! She comes up with some of the best and most interesting ideas I've seen- including the fantabulous Cupcake Wellingtons I blogged about a few weeks ago! (Post can be found here.)

Well, this past week she posted a recipe called Compost Cupcakes that's more of a non-recipe! You don't actually follow hers, as much as you take a yummy cake recipe and add your two favorite salty snacks and two sweetest sweet treats!

This reminds me a little of the chex snack mix a friend's mom always made when we went to be the beach...or Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor, Everything but the... (i.e. my post's title!)

Anyway, this is what I chose for my mini mixed up

Vanilla Bean Cake
Roasted Hazelnuts
Pretzel Bits
Chocolate Hazelnut Buttercream

My inspiration for this combination was a snack I ate- probably way too often- while traveling around Europe after high school graduation: Nutella and Pretzel Sticks. Mmm, there was nothing better in the world! And these cupcakes were just as uh-mazing! There was a chocolaty sweetness from the M&M's in each bite that was cut by a salty crunch from the nuts and pretzels! So good!

If you're a salty/sweet lover, then this is the perfect cupcake for you! And, it's so easy to make: any batter flavor will work...all snacks will be perfect to throw in...and picking the wrong frosting choice just isn't possible! So, use your imagination and come up with YOUR best "cupcake "snack!

Happy Baking!

Chocolate-Zucchini Cupcakes

The end of Easter left me with two predicaments-

1. Almost a whole pint of Buttermilk

2. WAY too much Easter candy

And after making the go-to country buttermilk biscuits (that went very well with chicken fried steak and parsley potatoes- yeah, I know...terrible for you! Ohhh, it was so gooood, though!), I was stumped with what else to do with the left over buttermilk. One can only eat so many biscuits!

Thanks to
PinkOfPerfection, I stumbled upon some fantastic recipes using buttermilk. One of which being Chocolate-Zucchini Cake.

I have made traditional zucchini cake many times, so the thought of mixing a vegetable with something sweet did not concern me...but, I must admit I never once considering this kind of flavor combination. Naturally, this sparked a "gotta absolutely make this never heard, seen or tasted confection...like RIGHT NOW!" response!

I found a highly rated recipe here and went to grating zucchini!

I did make a few changes including adding about a cup of dark chocolate chips and my secret weapon for all chocolate based cakes, a little coffee, to the batter.

Also, nearly all the recipes I found did not include a frosting- rather a chocolate chip/toasted nut topping...but, you know I have to do it my own little way...so, I topped my mini cakes with cream cheese frosting instead.

I finished each one by rolling them in chocolate curls, clear sugar crystals or chocolate sprinkles.

Now, I read the reviews at epicurious.com, so I had very high expectations. But, nothing could have prepared me for the uber-deliousness that is chocolate-zucchini cake! The cake itself is super chocolaty without being overly sweet and perfectly moist (thanks to this recipe's hero- the 2 cups of zucchini)! The chocolate chips give a nice bite to the cake and I promise you, you'd never know they were laced with vegetables! Can I also give myself two thumbs up for the cream cheese frosting? I mean, what a phenomenal pairing!

I made 2 dozen on Wednesday, which is church night at my house. So, those that make it to class will be greeted with a delight. I'm always nervous about sharing a new recipe...even when I've tried it and loved it...because you just never know, ya know!?! But, I don't think it would be possible not to love this cake!

So, if you ever find yourself wondering what to do with left over buttermilk or your garden is producing more zucchini than you can eat, you now have a chef tested/church group approved recipe at your fingertips! Now, I just need to figure out what I'm going to do with all of this leftover Easter chocolate!
