Princess Cake!

This was my first princess cake and I made it for an adorable now 4 year old! She wanted Rapunzel from the movie Tangled and here she is!

My princess cake with all fondant is: $50
With a real full barbie that I have to buy: $60-$70 depending on how expensive the barbie is.
You can also just deliver me the barbie your daughter wants then the price will be still $50.

With just icing: $40
With full barbie inside $50-$60
Again depending on how expensive the barbie is that you want me to buy (or again bring your own for a cheaper cake)
I can do any Disney princess with any color or design of dress just let me know what you need!

*Some princess cakes are made with full barbies and some with half be specific what you want*

This cake as is in the pictures is $85
It is made with all fondant.

Baseball cake!

I made this cake for my 13 year old brother (a.k.a pain in my butt lol). It was his birthday a few weeks ago and I surprised him with this cake. He LOVES baseball and has recently made the Jr. High baseball team!
The bottom cake is covered in icing (that's how you get the cool grassy look) and the top half (the ball) is covered in fondant. 

This cake as seen in picture is $80

With just icing: $70

With just fondant (both layers): $90

I can do any sports ball on the top (basket ball, tennis ball, bowling ball etc..) and can do any court or field design on the bottom just let me know what you need!

Zebra Craz Cake!

I'm not going to lie... the cake you are about to see.... is my ABSOLUTE favorite that I have made so far! I'm sure I will say that about more of my cakes but right now I dub this cake "Favorite

I made this cake for a family who was throwing a surprise birthday party for their daughter's best friend's 15th. I had the honor of making her birthday cake! The family's daughter came over and we talked cake for a bit. I showed her a fun cake that I had found while researching fun teenage cakes. The daughter fell in love with the cake I had found so we went with it but made a few tweaks. The birthday girl's favorite color was red but also liked pink. The cake I had found had just pink so I threw in a bit of red! 
I drew a rough draft of what the cake will look like and I gave it to the daughter so she could go show her family... because it was slightly difficult to explain lol 

This was the picture I drew for them....

....and this was my creation!

I changed a few things... like the size and number of argyle diamonds on the top tier... I thought it would be less busy that way so you could actually focus on something instead of having an anxiety attack from the many colors and patterns! lol It turned out GREAT!

This cake how it is in the picture starts at $85

P.s. the cake is only a 2 tier cake... the base is covered in fabric so it looks like a third tier but its not... if you would like an actual 3 tier cake then the price will be about $95-$120 depending on how much detail work you want on it as well as if you still want a base with it. Make sense?

With just icing: $75 (maybe higher because doing zebra stripes in icing will be a royal pain in the butt just letting you all know)

If you want a 3 tier with all icing then it will be about: $85-$100 again all depending on detail work.

Skittles Cake

This was a fun cake to make! I made it for a set of twins who could not be any more different! One is a boy and one is girl! The girl loves animals and the color pink while the boy loves skittles and the color Gold... where do you go with a cake when you get those two requests? Well you make it up as you go like I did!

This was my twin cake solution! Isn't a fun cake!
It is a two tier cake made with fondant and obviously intricately decorated... (Top is the boys part of the cake and bottom the girls)

This cake starts at $85

With just icing: $75

This is the back... I had three different animal prints, zebra, cheetah, and giraffe.

The picture below I added some edible gold star sparkles because the boys favorite color was gold and gold is a hard color to put on a cake.
You can customize your own two tier cake how you want it just let me know!


Gift Wrapped Cake

This is a fun birthday cake! It is small in this picture but I can make it any size you need.

This cake is made with fondant and is $30 for the small size it is now.
Any bigger and it will cost more.

Can come in any color or shape.

Checkerboard Surprise Cake

This is usually called the checkerboard cake but every time I make one of these no one expects what awaits them inside so now I call it my checkerboard surprise cake! Kids LOVE it!

This is a hand made cake (no store bought) so it is a little higher in price because there is a lot more time that goes into it.

It is an icing cake in the picture which is $50

With Fondant: $60

It only comes in both vanilla and chocolate which make up the checkerboard... I have not found a way around that yet but once I do I will post it and let you all know, but for now its just those two flavors.

I can do this cake in any colors!

The Sparkles are hard to see on the cake but in real life the cake sparkles more then a diamond does! Its really cool!

Let me know what you need


Spongebob Cake

This is a huge cake that can serve a crowd! I made it for a sweet little boy who was celebrating his 2nd birthday and his favorite thing in the world was Spongebob Square Pants!

The cake as seen in picture with both icing and fondant is a total of $85

Just icing: $70

Just Fondant: $115

World Cake

(Click on picture to enlarge)
This cake is a fun cake! I made it for my sister who is a 5th grade teacher and had just come home from serving a mission for our church The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) in Australia! I thought it appropriate to provide her this world cake with Australia in the middle since she loved it there so much. 

This cake is made with icing so the price is cheaper then it is with fondant.
The cake (as seen in picture) is $45

With fondant it is $55 (It will give it a smooth look)

Tell me what flavor of cake you want as well as other specifics you prefer. 
I can put whatever lettering you want on the cake or on the board for birthday's or other special occasions just let me know.



My name is Melissa and I LOVE to decorate Cakes! I decided to create this cake blog "Fun With Fancy Flour" so I can get my name out there in the cake world so I can start decorating cakes for many occasions! I used to sell my cakes a while ago when I was a newly wed to keep myself from going insane when I was home alone without my hubby, but life (and babies yay!) came into the picture and I couldn't find nearly enough time to work on my cakes. But now I am back into the swing of things and want to make you your next cake!! I can do all kinds of cakes HOWEVER I am still learning A LOT about cake decorating so please as of right now... do not expect professional! Lol I am good... but  not THAT good (YET!)

Prices: My prices as of right now are based on how much I spend for the supplies of your cake as well as the time I put all together into your cake... As a mom time is gold, so you will be spending some gold for my time! haha. I will start to charge for delivery in awhile but for now please take advantage of my FREE Delivery (within the boundaries of Gilbert and Mesa AZ) Any further and I will have to charge you per mile since gas prices are ridiculous right now. Sorry for any inconvenience.
My prices of cakes could change if I feel the need to change them.

Purpose: The purpose of this blog is for me to post pictures of cakes I have done as well as the prices of the cake so if you happen to want that particular cake you will already know the price. I will also put a second price on it if you want it a different way. Say if the cake you are looking at has fondant on it and you want it with icing I will put both options out there with the price!
If you see a cake that you like but do not want the same color or theme email me and let me know what I can do for you to get the cake that you want!

Email: I now have a seperate Email for this blog so you can email me anytime with your requests... My email is

 Also let me know if there is a particular cake that you want but I have not done yet (say a square wedding cake) and you want me to do it... I will calculate the price (as best I can) and get back to you. It will help me (since I am a visual learner) to send me a picture of the cake you have in mind so I can see exactly what you want! Be specific in your emails on what you want like if you want fondant or icing, what FLAVOR of cake you want, ect... 

I promise my best work in all cakes!

Limitations: I refuse to do any naughty or questionable cakes So please don't ask.
