A HUGE thank you to my wonderful sister-in-law, Cayla who redesigned my blog and made me matching business cards for my birthday!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and I hope you all do too!

Cartoon Corvette...


It is far from perfect!

With very limited time and Cason's help we made this cartoon version of my father-in-law's Corvette I know all of the car guys out there might not approve and I know it's far from a scale version but it was my first attempt at a car and I can only get better from here, right?!? Either way it was also my first cake that I witnessed the cutting/eating of and I thought it would be hard to see my work demolished but it tasted great so I didn't mind so much.

Fall Fun!

I LOVE fall, so I could not wait to get to work on this topsy turvy fall leaf cake! Jamie's husband contacted me to do this cake for her 28th birthday. It was vanilla with vanilla frosting. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMIE!!

I even put Cason to work on this one, he helped me vein the leaves and he did an amazing job!

Well Hello Princess!!

This cake was a lot of fun! It was a birthday cake for a girl who is a real live Cinderella and has even done an internship for Disney. My original intent was to put a glass slipper on top of the pillow instead of the tiara but having not ever used isomalt I did not attempt due to time restraint. I think it turned out pretty cute anyway. The top pillow was chocolate and the bottom pillow vanilla.

This cake was for sweet little Katelyn's 2nd birthday! I just love Minnie Mouse so this was lots of fun! This cake was also vanilla cake but I died batter pink so when they cut into it will be a fun surprise! Happy Birthday Katelyn!
These letters are reason enough to get a cricut cake!

The baby bump cake...

This cake was lots of fun! Ariana is the soon to be mommy of sweet baby Carter and a friend of hers contacted me to do this cake for her shower so we did this turquoise and brown zebra print theme and a few cupcakes  to make sure we had enough for all of the guests.

Soon to Be Mr. and Mrs.!!

This cute little cake was done for Bailey a long time family friend of mine. She wanted to do something special for her brother and his bride to be for their rehearsal dinner. I thought this was very sweet being a newly wed myself, it is hard to enjoy your actual wedding cake so hopefully they got to at least enjoy a bite or two of this one!
We did the color theme of their wedding and a mini dress made out of cereal treats with a tuxedo front on the round cake half chocolate, half vanilla.

For everyone else at the dinner we did cupcakes.

Cricut cake!

Michael's has Cricut Cake on sale this week for only $149 normally$399! So I broke down and bought one. This means this weekend my cakes might go even faster! Well, let's hope so anyway I am still learning the machine but this way I can have some practice I am planning on doing a birthday cake for cutie pie Katelyn and a baby shower cake for my brother-in-law's sister Kim. I am very excited about both! Wish me luck!

3 Cakes, ONE weekend!

This was a BIG weekend for me. I attempted my very first topsy turvy cake, one birthday cake, and a very fun owl baby shower cake.

This one I did for a friend of a friend's birthday party. It was tons of fun! I got to use my own designs on this one too! She said black and white and modern and I could do whatever I wanted after that. Thank you Rachel!

I did layers of chocolate and vanilla cake to stay with the black and white theme. then used a stencil to airbrush on the top layer design, quilted a pattern an the second tier and added some pearls for sophistication, then simple fondant circles for the pattern on the bottom tier.

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's SUPERMAN!!
My dad's coworker wanted a superman cake for her grandson and his friends birthday.
It is a marble cake with chocolate icing. fondant covered and decorated with a buttercream border for the cloud effect.

This one is definitely my favorite cake so far! This one was also for Rachel who had a busy weekend too with the birthday party and hosting a baby shower which is what this owl cake was for. the baby shower was a bird nest themed shower with this green and creme color and the mommy to be is using owl bedding so this is what I came up with!

I created a cereal treat owl covered in chocolate icing and decorated him with fondant cut outs, almond slices for his belly and M&M's for his eyeball. I dipped some pretzels in chocolate for the nest look and covered the rest in fondant to complete the look. It was surprisingly sturdy and edible!

Tom and Jerry

This one was a little scary due to Tom and Jerry being so Iconic.
I did a chocolate and vanilla marbled cake with chocolate filling and icing. I covered it in fondant and then layered the colored fondant pieces to create Tom, Jerry, and the lettering. I then used black edible coloring gel to trace the images with a paint brush to help them stand out.

A little risky...

After one more cake exactly like the wedding dress and bridesmaid cakes, I thought I would take a huge risk and take on this baby giraffe cake for a coworker who was hosting a baby shower. I think this cake was when I fell in love with cake decorating.

I love getting free reign on a cake like I did on this one. Katie told me pink,  brown, and giraffe print, the rest was up to me. The mommy to be craved chocolate and raspberries all throughout the pregnancy so we did a chocolate fudge cake with a raspberry filling and chocolate icing on the bottom tier and a vanilla with vanilla filling and icing for the second tier. The baby giraffe was made from cereal treats then covering each layer in fondant making the entire cake edible!

My very first post!

O this is very exciting! Bear with me because I am brand new to blogging I have only so much as read a few here and there. But I am more than willing to give it a shot! I guess we will start with my very first decorated cake...

This cake was done for a long time friend of mine, Bonnie's wedding shower. I used fondant to cover vanilla frosted "funfetti" cake. It turned out pretty we considering I had never attempted anything beyond a box mix 13x9 sheet cake.
