This category speaks for itself. Here you’ll find blogs detailing the making of most (if not all) of our cakes! I’m not here just to make desserts for people living in and around Akron, Ohio. I want to meet you on the computer screen and help you learn how to decorate beautiful desserts yourself as well! Part of the way La Hoot got it’s name is because learning to bake and decorate can truly be a “hoot!”

Finding Nemo – Finding Talent

By |September 3rd, 2015|

I had the pleasure of helping a dear friend make her cake for her daughters first birthday party.  She had never decorated a cake like this before, but felt it important and meaningful for her to be a part of the process.  So instead of doing the job for her, I welcomed her into […]

Practice Makes Perfect!

By |July 16th, 2015|

Starting a new hobby can be daunting.  Especially if you’re not a natural from the get-go.  Now, I know a lot of my La Hoot fans think I’m this artsy-fartsy talent explosion. ;)  And when it comes to some of my cupcake-cake designs, I might begin to agree with you a tad bit.  But […]

A Smashing Volcano!

Did you see our dinosaur cupcake cake we created!?  Well, now it’s time to check out the making (and destruction) of the volcano smash cake that went along with it!

I started with two little cakes to make this beauty.  One was a traditional 4″ round.  The other was a mini-doll cake.

I then stacked these on […]

A Dino Made of Cupcakes

By |April 27th, 2015|

A long time customer of mine came to me looking for a dinosaur cupcake cake.  I’ve had the pleasure of making her daughter many cakes in the past, including a fish, barnyard, and Olaf!  Most of which were made out of cupcakes!  But this time… the order was for her little boy who was […]

Every Cake is Awesome!

By |April 21st, 2015|

Especially these two!  Over the course of two weekends, I had the pleasure of making two Lego Man cupcake cakes!  One of which was for my son, Nathan who was turning 5!

Let’s just pause for a second to entertain a moment that melted my heart.  Here’s my big boy who pulled up a chair […]

A Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday Smash!

By |April 17th, 2015|

My college roommate and best friend has been a La Hoot fan since…
A) I told her about the whole idea to start this bakery business thing (of course!… that’s what bff’s do!)
B) I made her a darling turtle cupcake cake for her baby shower.
This time around, she was placing an order for another special […]

A Penguin Cupcake Cake for a Baby Shower

By |March 17th, 2015|

One of my favorite parts about my job is getting special requests and making them come to life!  In this case, I was given an invitation to a baby shower and asked to make a cupcake cake that resembled the penguin pictured on it.

With an excited “Of course I can do that!” I took […]

An Elsa Doll Cake – Gorgeously Frozen!

By |March 10th, 2015|

I am absolutely loving the flood of Frozen orders I’ve been getting.  The best part?  They’ve all been different!  It’s been so fun having the opportunity to make an Olaf cupcake cake, an Elsa quarter sheet cake, Frozen cake pops, and now… an ELSA DOLL CAKE!

When I first started doing some research as to […]
