Gourmet layer cakes and cupcakes are, without question, the most popular items for special orders. There are many examples featured throughout this site, but the most up-to-date pictures and descriptions are compiled on my Facebook page. If you don't see a flavor that sounds perfect for you, just ask! I specialize in creating items specifically tailored to my clients' individual tastes and party themes.
CUPCAKES: Mini ($1.25-1.50 each), Regular ($2.50-3), Jumbo ($4+), minimum order requirements apply. Gluten free cupcakes are .50 more per cupcake.
~Cookie or Candy Bar (i.e. Newman's Own version of "Oreos," peanut butter cups, etc.)
~SO many more!!
~Standard American Buttercream (powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla)- many flavors available
~French Buttercream (super smooth and soft, not as sweet as American)- many flavors available
~Italian Meringue Buttercream- many flavors available
~Ganache (glossy, smooth dark chocolate icing)
~Cream Cheese- many flavors available
Cake and icing flavors can be spiked with liqueurs and other special flavors as well, adding a hint of something special and taking a cake to the next level. Cupcakes can be filled for a special surprise, if desired. Let's get creative!!
I prefer using NATURALLY COLORED sprinkles and colorings. These are better for the environment and for our bodies. Of course, I also have traditional versions available as well.
I make my own homemade marshmallows, and can turn them into an awesome fondant for handmade decors and cupcake toppers! I no longer offer fondant covered cakes, however.
Taste the difference! I use really high quality ingredients (and I'm not just saying that!)...local, creamy, fresh milk from Organic Valley; local, pastured organic eggs; local grass fed butter; a special blend of unbleached pastry flour; Oregon-grown and milled whole grain flours from Camas Country Mill in Junction City, OR; organic, locally grown fruit; organic, locally made chocolate from Lillie Belle Farms in Central Point, OR; locally brewed vanilla from Singing Dog in Eugene, OR; the highest quality, most vibrant spices; and more!

I can make AWESOME whole grain cakes too! Any flavor can be converted. For kids' classes, I highly recommend whole grain Muffin Cakes (raspberry, blueberry, apple cinnamon, or carrot) with Organic Cream Cheese Icing.
GLUTEN FREE CAKES: All of my cakes can be made with gluten free flour, and most of my icings can too. I promise...you will not be able to tell the difference between a GF cake and a wheat-based one! They are nothing short of incredible. Additional charge applies.
ICE CREAM CAKES:
I use organic, locally made Alden's Ice Cream as a filling (unless you specify your favorite ice cream brand/flavor instead), sandwiched between two layers of delicious cake, and iced with French buttercream. Ask about flavor combo possibilities! (Alden's Ice Cream includes: Vanilla Bean, Cookies & Cream, Peaches & Cream, Strawberry, Blackberry, Mint Chip, Pumpkin, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Butter Brittle and more, subject to local availability. Tillamook's peppermint ice cream is a favorite with chocolate cake around the holidays.)

Popular vegan frosting flavors are Vanilla, Organic Raspberry, Coconut, Mint/Mint Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate. Coconut vegan French "butter"cream is also an option (made with organic coconut milk, soft and silky, not a sweet as typical buttercreams. Not gluten free.). Available as an 8" layer cake or cupcakes. Made with organic unbleached flour, can be whole grain or gluten free upon request.
Flourless Chocolate Cake:
~This is a rich, decadent treat, and a very popular item for special orders. This cake is one 8" layer, iced with dark chocolate ganache, and is topped with sliced almonds, toasted organic coconut or both (your choice). A whole POUND of organic chocolate from Lillie Belle Farms in Central Point, OR is used in this cake! 12 servings, $30. Freezes and travels well, naturally gluten free.
