The Big 5-0

A family friend of ours celebrated her 50th birthday today, and her daughter (who also happens to be my sister-in-law) had me do a cake for the occasion. She didn't want the typical "over the hill" or anything like that, but something girly with purple and black. Here's what I came up with.

She said it was just what she was looking for. Happy Birthday, Cathy!

Last night I made a 30th birthday cake in the shape of a football field. The 'logo' in the middle of the field was a black circle trimmed in navy and white with the number 30 in the middle. The sides of the cake have footballs on them. Hopefully the cake will score some points with the birthday boy!

Little All-Star

Yesterday I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for my friend Leslie to welcome her baby boy, Kolton. We did a little all-star theme with blue, red, and orange as the colors. The shower went great, and I think the cake was a home run, too!

Rubber Duckie

The theme for Leslie's second shower was rubber duckies. For her cake I did a rubber duckie sitting atop baby blocks that spell out her son's name.

1st of 3 and a birthday

This weekend I did the first of three cakes for my friend Leslie's baby showers! All of her showers are within a week of one another--that's a lot of cake!! This first theme was a baby in a pea pod. Precious. The sides had dark green swirls.

The other cake was for our friend Mary Lynn's mother's birthday. Simple and pretty.

No Icing Needed

So, I thought I'd try my hand at making a different kind of cake... No flour, sugar, milk, or eggs on the ingredient list for this one! Instead I just whipped up some diapers, bibs, bath towels, and socks. No icing needed, just a little ribbon, hot glue, and a few sticky foam letters. Plenty of time, just no oven to preheat, and PRESTO! A cake certainly made for a special occasion, probably just not one you want to sink your teeth into!

Two Classic Lovebirds

A few weeks ago I did a bridal shower cake for My friend Leslie's sister, Joy. The theme was Mickey and Minnie Mouse, two classic cartoon lovebirds. Unfortunately, the pictures I took of the cake got deleted, so Leslie was kind enough to send me one that her family took. Thanks Les!!

A Princely Occasion

Here's the most recent cake I've done. A Little Prince themed first birthday. The birthday boy had his own smaller cake to match the bigger one. Too cute!
