I first made a cake for Aris when he was turning four; in fact, he was one of my first customers! He's celebrating at @nysci today with this space themed cake, complete with astronaut, rocket and space shuttle figurines on top. Happy happy birthday, Aris!

Alison is celebrating her bridal shower today with a Tiffany's theme and this cake! Always an awesome challenge to get those sharp edges and corners; I love making square cakes. And how pretty is that reflective cake board? Congratulations, Alison!

I'll just leave this here. As for the lettering, if you know anything about the folks over at @saltandbonebbq, you can probably guess what at least one of the acronyms stands for.
Oh, and happy happy birthday Nabeel!!! ⚑️

Natalia is celebrating her Sweet 16 as we speak with a grand party and this cake, which is all buttercream, edible gold leaf, and fresh flowers. Happy happy birthday, Natalia!

There's little I love more than seeing people enjoying my cake--and this photo of gorgeous sisters Sahar and Wajiha at Sahar's wedding melts my heart. Wajiha ordered not one, but two cakes from me this past weekend, both for her older sister. It's the ultimate reward to know that I was even a tiny part of their celebrations.

From the shower on Friday to the wedding today, I created this naked cake for an absolutely stunning celebration. Many many congrats to the happy couple!

When you have left over red velvet and vanilla cakes, chocolate chip cookie dough buttercream, and ganache drip, you put them all together and think it will either taste amazing or perplexing (it was amazing, naturally).πŸ’ƒπŸ½
I wasn't going to eat a piece but on my way home as I was walking to my car I fell in the street and as I drove, feeling both sorry for myself and in awe of my cake-protecting skills, I decided I was most definitely going to treat myself. Again. Everyone needs to fall on their ass (or their knees, elbows, hands, maybe even roll a little) sometimes.

@benz_meow Just picked up this cake she ordered to celebrate her birthday tonight (because das how us ladies roll) and I think I can describe her face like this: 😍 I'm so happy to be able to make someone's day. Because who doesn't want a double chocolate cake with chocolate ganache drip and edible silver leaf?! #nakedcake #chocolate #chocolatecake #drippycake #ganache #silverleaf #cakeart #swissmeringuebuttercream #birthdaycake #cake #customcake #astoria #astoriany #astoriaqueens #queens #lic #aloria #aloriacakesnyc

PSA: Just because chocolate chip cookie dough buttercream doesn't contain raw egg does not mean you should eat it in copious quantities. Unless it's in your cake, in which case you should eat the entire thing.

Sugar, yes please. I ate the top piece. It was extra!!!

1. This is not turning into a cocktail Instagram.
2. I spent the day running every errand under the sun (literally) and I deserve this (yes, of course) tequila cocktail.
3. I'm making three fabulous cakes for this weekend. I make my own hours and that's the beauty of this entrepreneur life.
4. "The Big Chill" is da bomb.

And then sometimes you drag your kid to watch the sun light the sky on fire and he hears mewing in the bushes and it's a tiny kitten. And after you wait for the mama cat and realize she's nowhere to be found you take the kitten home and aptly name it Sunset. Tomorrow the pet store. Welcome home, Sunset!

Amy and Mike are performance artists who came to me with a very clear idea of what they wanted, all while giving me enough artistic liberty to make creating this cake an unforgettable experience. Their "Wild Torus" logo is printed in edible ink and the golden ring on top is made of Rice Krispies treats. The cake also features edible silver and gold leaf and silver and gold pearls throughout. Swipe through to see all the details. Many many congratulations, Amy and Mike!

Working for yourself isn't so bad when your office can be pretty much anywhere--especially when you live in Astoria, where you can get BLTs like this one--with thick cut maple bacon, grilled plum tomato, and citrus aioli. The Pullman bread is perfectly toasted and the tomato adds just the right amount of sweetness. I could describe it for a lot longer but average attention span on social media is 8 seconds--so I'll just shut up and eat it.

I just dropped these sweet little duckies off at a playground party. They are going to help an adorable little girl who loves ducks (with a jumbo cupcake all to herself) celebrate her second birthday.

Nicole and Vladimir said their "I do's" earlier today and now they're getting ready to cut into this wedding cake which contains one of my new favorite flavor combinations: banana cake and Nutella Swiss meringue buttercream. It's always awesome to deliver to places like The Metropolitan Building, where pretty much everything is gorgeous. Congratulations, Nicole and Vlad!

Christi celebrated turning 19 with this chocolate cake with (uh huh, you guessed it) Oreo Swiss meringue buttercream and fresh flowers. 'Tis the season for naked cakes. Happy happy birthday Christi!
