I made these Sno-Cone inspired treats for Western Fairfax Christian Ministries β€œJust Because” they wanted to say Thank You to their staff and volunteers for making a difference in the lives of so many deserving children. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to make them.

The cone is filled with Rice Krispie treats and topped with a chocolate cupcake. Rainbow colors of sanding sugar give the look of flavored ice.

Shout out to The Little Shop Under the Stairs for the custom made the perfect wood stand to hold the β€œSno-Cones”.

As a volunteer baker for Cake4Kids, I love making cakes for well deserving youth who may not otherwise have a birthday cake. Every child deserves a cake made just for them on their special day. Cake4Kids went on a hiatus due to Covid, so as you can imagine I was thrilled when I was finally able to snag a request once deliveries resumed. The recipient of this cake was a young girl who loves Trolls! It is vanilla cake, per her request, marbled buttercream icing, white chocolate ganache drip, lots of Nerds candy and rainbow lollipops. Shout out to my fellow volunteer baker and dear friend, Marci Jerome, for the custom hand painted birthday message.

Hello, We are interested in having a cake made for the birthday of a 13 year old with the theme of Riverdale - the new TV series. It would be for 25 guests (all teens). The date would be for the 2nd of June and we would need it delivered to our address in Fairfax, VA - Saturday morning. Can you give us an idea of pricing and if it is possible? Please email at [email protected]. Thank you - Nathania
Thanks Michael Machtinger for my awesome birthday cake! It was as delicious as it looked and a wonderful surprise.
