Finding Nemo – Finding Talent

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...

Practice Makes Perfect!

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...

Through All of It

This is La Hoot's busiest week perhaps to date.  Between graduation parties and a wedding, I'm slammed and working nearly a traditional 40 hour work week.  Blessed?  Yes!  Overwhelmed?  Sometimes!  But right now, I'm slowing down to focus on something of even greater...

Celebrate the Bride and Groom!

With the height of wedding season upon us, chance are... you know someone getting married this summer!  Wouldn't it be a nice sweet treat to surprise them with some of these bride and groom cake pops? There are so many reasons these wedding cake pops make the perfect...

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...

A Dino Made of Cupcakes

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...

Every Cake is Awesome!

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...

A Winnie the Pooh 1st Birthday Smash!

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...

Winnie the Pooh and Hunny Pots Too!

Character cake pops are so fun to create and a perfect treat at a themed party!  Perhaps you've looked through our cake pop collection before.  Have you seen Spider-man?  Our Lego Heads?  Or my personal favorite... the owls!?  Well this time around, I had the pleasure...

Hourglass Cake Pops – Bringing a Logo to Life

I was approached by a customer who's logo for her business, Tying up Loose Ends, is an hourglass with a red ribbon tied around it.  She wanted to see me bring it to life in a cake pop so she could display them for potential clients at a networking event.  Challenge...

Jamberry and the Baker’s Life – True Love!

Based on the content of the blogs you read here (or quite honestly, the lack of blogging that happens time-to-time), it's safe to assume I'm a pretty busy person.  Taking honesty one step further, I'm often times TOO busy and I struggle to keep my head above water....

A Penguin Cupcake Cake for a Baby Shower

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...
