I'm BACK!!

Well between moving to Arkansas, applying for new jobs, starting a new job at Harp's bakery, receiving another job offer, and trying to decide which of those paths to go down I have been out of the blogging world for a little while. But things are starting to settle down now so I will update you on what I've been doing.
Ok so right after Memorial day I started at Harps grocery store in downtown Bentonville as their head cake decorator. They do wonderful cakes and give quite a bit of creative freedom for being a grocery store, which I love. I have really enjoyed learning buttercream techniques since before I worked there I mainly used fondant. Unfortunately and fortunately at the same time my last day there will be Saturday because I received a job with Anheuser Busch that I just simply could not turn down. So I will be back in the corporate world and doing cakes on the weekends when I find time and am feeling creative!

Here are a few of the cakes that I remembered to take pictures of while I've been working at Harp's that I've done, all in buttercream.
 Silk flowers provided by the bride arranged by me, I loved the yellow, it was such a beautiful summer wedding.

 1/2 sheet cake for the base and an 1/8 sheet cake for the bed all covered in buttercream with plastic "characters".
And of course while in Arkansas I've mad about a dozen of these little hogs.

Pirates, Lace, and Cars!

Busy weekend this weekend! I traveled back to Tulsa this weekend for Katie and Wes' wedding and grooms cake and little Hunter's 2 year old birthday party. My car was loaded down and I couldn't have done it all with out the help of my mom and dad who were there to provide a house for me to stay in and a kitchen for me to destroy several times! 

The wedding cake was a white cake with raspberry filling, ivory buttercream, and white fondant lace accents. With a few ideas from my mom I even made the cake stand from a candy dish, a wooden plate, edging for a doll house, and pearls from the scrapbook section in hobby lobby. All it took was a little white paint!

The grooms cake is completely made from chocolate cake, fondant and chocolate chips melted down to make the wheels. Chocolate overload! My dad was helpful in lending a man's eye for the car details and last minute finishes! It was pretty humid this weekend in Oklahoma so frankly I was thrilled it made it to the wedding! 

Little hunter had a pirate themed birthday party so his mommy requested this cake and smash cake. I loved this theme and the decorations were sooo cute!

Vicki and Todd's wedding!

These aren't the greatest photos in the world since I took them from my iphone but I still wanted to share them. The pictures from our camera all came out blurry so hopefully I will be have some from the wedding later. Also please ignore the paper plate holding up the fish tail it was only there for transport and I forgot to take it out for the pic! oops!

Box Truck

All of the warehouse workers at my full time job have been working so hard lately due to the snow and ice, so we are throwing them an appreciation dinner! I am providing the cake! This was a lot of fun and my firsts for a lot of things. Cason helped me build the base, and I made a silicon mold and made solid chocolate wheels. The front end was made from rice cereal treats and the box end is vanilla cake, all decorated in fondant.

Sailboat birthday!

This cake was for sweet little Miles' 1st birthday. The cake was vanilla with vanilla icing with fondant decorations. The smash cake was chocolate with chocolate icing so the birthday boy could get super messy for the pictures.

GO Pokes!

The Austin family redeemed themselves by ordering this Oklahoma State cake after forcing me to make that awful sooner schooner :) But seriously I loved doing this one! It is all fondant decorations and chocolate underneath with chocolate frosting. Happy Birthday Matt!

Book Cake

As I was in a panic to salvage the candy cake this book cake needed to be delivered for a surprise 50th birthday party and the surprise was not that there was no cake! So once again Cason came to my rescue after I forced him out of bed to add titles to the faceless books. What would I do without such a talented husband?!

Also, I forgot to take pictures so I stole these from Jenna and Tyler's Facebook. Thanks guys!

Cake catastrophe!

I had my very first cake catastrophe this past weekend. I thought it would never happen to ME but needless to say I am not above the cake gods. It all started with this beautifully stacked, great angled cake that I finished about 3 o'clock in the morning on Friday. Then Saturday morning rolled around and I got up with plenty of time to spare, so I thought, to put on some final touches to this candy cake and the book cake you'll see. So proud that I had done so well with not leaving too much to do the morning of, I started to mix some royal icing when I looked over and noticed the top of layer of this cake missing. Panic set in and I ran around to see it and a million jelly beans all over the dining room floor. LOVELY! Luckily I had made a smash cake since it was a 1st birthday cake so I used that cake as the top layer and popped another smash cake in the oven . So I know this cake is a little saggy but I did what I could to salvage and it made it to the party on time! I learned a good lesson though and will not stack another cake, especially not a topsy turvy cake the night before. Also that frozen cakes settle and I should let them thaw.
