Elmo juggling cake

This cake was for a new customer which was a referal from another! Love those! She said Austin was turning 2 and loved Elmo and balls. So this is what I came up with! Elmo juggling!

I hope Austin likes his cake and has a fabulous birthday!

Snowflake Princess Cake

Not sure if you can tell by the picture, but there are lots of sparkles and lots of snowflakes on this icey blue cake for Princess Mai! She is precious and turned five yesterday! She is having a snowflake princess party tomorrow! We are good friends with her parents and her, her sister and my girls love to play together! Precious!

Say cheese...Camera Cake

This cake was for my sister's sister-in-law. Figure that out! Just kidding. Mallory lives two streets over, so it makes it convenient when my sister comes to visit. It was obviously her 30th birthday, so her mom ordered a cake! We did a curly headed little girl leaned against a large camera with a picture of "shoot....". Hope it looks like what it was supposed to! Mallory never gets "pink" because she has two boys, so I gave her some! She is a photographer that does excellent work...

Kettle Bell Cake

This was the first time I have ever had a request for a kettle bell. There is a first time for everything. I thought it was going to be harder than it was, but the only issue we had was the "gray" fondant turned purplish by the time I delivered it to her. It was for her cousin. And of course it actually weighed 35 pounds!

Rockin' Pink and Black Guitar

My first go at a guitar! Laura, girl that the cake is for, loves Taylor Swift and Hannah Montanna right now. SO, I did a guitar that was very girly for her 5th birthday! I hope she likes it!
I work with her mom at the preschool. Love her mom!

Pink Princess

I think this is the last of the pics from my vacation from blogging...sorry I had to do so many at once. This was a joint party for a fellow preschool teacher's girls. The theme was princess, so I did my new love zebra print with the standard dots and a crown...ALL in pink of course!! They were doing a bowling party...just glad I didn't have to try to do the bowling pins again!

Black and white...zebra cake and cookies

This Cake and these Cookies were for Jill's shower. She is a childhood friend of my husbands family. I got to help with her shower and was honored to be a part! My girls are going to be her flower girls in her January wedding! The crazy thing that happened to this cake was that it sat in the car while we were at church and the top pink border FADED! I was horrified! No one made a big deal out of it, so it was fine...and hopefully I have learned my lesson!?!? Once again a zebra cake...I love them now!

Zebra Cake

This cake was a first for several reasons. It was a new customer, always makes me nervous! It was also my first zebra cake! It really wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. Dying the fondant black went really quick and then I just made the crazy stripes. I wish I had done dots on the bottom layer of this 1st birthday cake as well...wasn't a fan of the pink stripes after the zebra was done! FUN!

In a Baby Carriage Cake

This cake made me nervous. It was for a new customer and I didn't know (at the time) how they even got my name! I ended up putting a border on the top of each layer as well, but had already taken my pictures. The carriage was fun to make! It was for a little boy, but could easily have been changed to pink for a girl! Loved the colors they chose.

Petit Fours and more

Petit Fours for Halloween weekend and for a baby shower. Yum, Yum!

Another John Deere Green Cake

Well, I think they keep getting least I hope they do. Here was my third go at a JD cake for Hunter's birthday. I work with his sweet mom and his cutie pie sister goes to preschool with my girls! We had lots of hay served with this lemon flavored JD cake!

It's a BOY

A baby boy shower cake for a shower hosted by my friend Laura. I think it was for a fellow coach's wife. Go Redhawks!
