If you have ideas about a flavor you’d like to try, send me an email or submit a custom order.
Do you use butter cream frosting?
I use a whipped buttercream frosting. If buttercream is not your favorite, I offer other options like Ermine Frosting, Rocky Mountain Frosting, whipped cream, or mousse. Not sure what to choose? Some frostings hold up better than others in different conditions, I can make a recommendation based on your situation or recipe.
What is Ermine and Rocky Mountain Frosting?
Ermine is made with milk, a bit of flour and granulated sugar (Not recommended for those with dairy intolerance or allergies). The results are a light whipped frosting, not as intense as buttercream. Rocky Mountain is made using egg whites and a simple syrup. The result is an extremely light and mild flavored frosting.

Butter cream frosting is the most versatile. Popular flavor requests are Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Cream Cheese, Champagne, and Lemon.
