A BIG FAT German Chocolate Cake!

Did you know it has nothing to do with Germany? The developer of the kind of chocolate used in this cake was named Samuel German. So the original name of the cake was German's Chocolate Cake.

Maybe they should've gone with Sam's Chocolate Cake to avoid confusion.

It's a little late for this Valentine of a cake, but there's always Anniversaries!

Some pics of the Woodland Critter Cake at the Baby Shower


A Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Filling, Chocolate Buttercream, Fondant Grass and Leaves and Meringue Toadstools for a Woodland Critter-Themed Baby Shower!


So the weather interfered with the two weekends that I was going to have guests try out my Valentines Day Cakes! (or Galentine's Day or heck, just a Celebrate You Day)

But I'm still working on the cake(s)

So far, I've got a Heart-Shaped Chocolate Truffle Cake (made with almond flour) with Caramel Filling, and Chocolate Buttercream - soon to be covered with a red mirror glaze!

Then I'm working on a Heart-Shaped Chocolate Cake (AP flour) with a Hazelnut Mousse Filling, Chocolate Buttercream and Mirror Glaze!

I want them to look like a chocolate truffle from a box of chocolates, and I may make some mini heart shaped cakes!

Who wants one? You can order one with a different filling!


Keep your eyes peeled for a new Valentine's Day Cake! Coming this weekend!

(Also looking into this Top Forward Cake trend!)


But I still have 3 mini chocolate orange cakes!

This just in: I have an extra chocolate orange cake.

I repeat:

This 2 layer, chocolate cake flavored with orange zest, filled with orange curd and frosted with chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream could be YOURS for $30 if you message me!

It could be your Holiday Celebration Dessert, or Birthday Cake, or your Hover Over It With A Fork, Eat It By Yourself (I'm Not Here To Judge!) Cake.

Whatever you want it for and and whoever you want to share it with (or not!) 😉


BIG FAT CAKES still has some openings for Christmas desserts or for whatever occasion you may like a cake for!

I also still have 4 Mini Chocolate Orange Cakes for sale! $15 each!

I know what you're thinking...

Well. I mean, I don't, really, but I wonder if people think I'm already booked up for Thanksgiving!

Guess What? I'm not! I got one big order for this week, but I've got some room for a couple more, so...

Pumpkin Cheesecake anyone? Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake anyone? (It doesn't have to be that tall!)

Photos from BIG FAT CAKES by Lydian's post 11/16/2021

It's beginning to look a lot like... well, you know. The Holiday Season! Thanksgiving is literally around the corner and the many other holidays of the season are coming up.

Whatever your celebration, if it requires desserts, I'm your girl! Yule Logs, Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake, Champ de Noel, Peppermint Hot Chocolate, Pumpkin Almond Cheesecake, Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake (not pictured) I got you covered.

Place an order today so your dessert game is on!


This Autumnal Beauty went out today!

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Mousse Filling and Chocolate Buttercream!

A Gluten Free mini version is coming! Message me if you'd like to buy it. $15!


I had a "Nailed It!" moment with this cake. My customer's boyfriend is an avid fisherman, and this cake was going to have a big fish jumping out of the top to catch a lure from a fishing pole.

But NOTHING I did worked like I wanted it to, and the fish head...well I'll show you that one later, so it turned into this, which I think is adorable.

It's a Mint Chocolate Chip Cake (chocolate cake, Mint Chocolate Chip Swiss Meringue Buttercream - which is DEEELIICIOUS!!!) and a mirror glaze with Fondant decorations.

Happily, the customer and the birthday boy were very satisfied with the cake despite my inability to make a fishing pole and a... fish...head


Please allow for 2 weeks notice at least for cake orders. Last minute cake orders are hard to fill and prepare for. I can be flexible within 2 weeks, it doesn't have to be exact.

Sometimes I can take a cake with a few days' notice, but only if I'm not already booked with a complicated cake that I need time to prepare for.

Please message me here for cake orders instead of calling or you can text me at my posted number.

Earl Grey Cupcakes filled with Blood Orange Curd and Lavender Ganache

Photos from BIG FAT CAKES by Lydian's post 10/10/2021

A classic look for this classy cake.

Another Earl Grey Cake with Cherry Heering/Black Currant Buttercream and Lavender Ganache Buttercream. The ganache was a bit of an accident, but I think it's the best way to get the subtle lavender flavor.

With lavender-infused heavy cream, white chocolate and butter (and a little purple food coloring) and some edible gold paint, this ganache/bcream is smooth and delicious!


A new spin on an old favorite! This Earl Grey Cake with Cherry Heering Liqueur/Black Currant Buttercream is sporting some Lavender White Chocolate Ganache, which is ONE new thing, but on the inside...

Some Blood. Orange. Curd.



I'm thinking of tinkering with my Earl Grey Cake with Cherry Heering/Black Currant Liqueur Buttercream. What if....

I add a Blood Orange Curd Filling?

And a Lavender infused White Chocolate Ganache Drip?

Would someone want to buy that experiment at a reduced cost?


It's Spooky/Gothic Cake time, but it's ALSO Pumpkin Spice Latte Cake time!
It doesn't have to be this big, though. I was thinking...
I'd like to make some Mini Pumpkin Spice Latte Cakes the first week of October. If you'd like one, sign up by messaging me at or emailing me at [email protected].
Tell me if you'd like GF or Regular. The cake is Pumpkin Spice. The frosting is coffee-flavored Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It's "roll your eyes to the back of your head" delicious.


It's BIG FAT CAKES 1 year anniversary!!!! Thanks to my family and friends and all my customers for making this last year a fun and challenging learning experience!

I'm still going forward, and can't wait to make more cakes! Thanks to Leigh Mumford for giving me a reason to accidentally start a cake company!


Is it time for scary cakes? I want to make some scary cakes! Who wants a spooky cake?

I used black cocoa powder to help make this buttercream black. I airbrushed red onto the top and the sides. Anyone want spiders or bats or cobwebs?


A dairy and gluten free lemon cake with dairy free lemon Swiss meringue buttercream for an anniversary!
