Under the Sea

Our friend Amy is helping throw a baby shower for her sister-in-law today. The theme is "Under the Sea" to coordinate with the baby's room decor. The top matched the sea creatures on the invitation and the sides were polka dots in all the same colors as the rest of the cake. I think it turned out beautifully!

Picnic-Themed Rehearsal

A sweet young woman that Nathan and I have known for a long time, Carissa, and her fiance Keegan are getting married today. They did me the honor of asking me to make the cake for their rehearsal dinner. It was a picnic theme, and the bride-to-be requested daisies on top. I did the traditional red and white checked look and a pale yellow base color. We are excited to celebrate with you today, Carissa and Keegan!!

Spring Has Sprung

Some family friends of ours were celebrating several April birthdays in the family as they also celebrated Easter, so they asked me to do a cake for them. They requested something springy with flowers and bright green, orange, yellow, and watermelon pink. Hope you had a great celebration!

Cotton Candy Clouds

This cake was designed by the 6-yr-old birthday girl, herself. They had a unicorn cake topper, so the cake was a unicorn's hangout. Cotton candy pink and blue stripes and fluffy white clouds... sounds like a unicorn's paradise to me! Happy Birthday, Makenna!

A sweet lady I worked with at school named Lori is getting married this weekend, and I had the joy of doing the cake for her wedding shower at school. I worked  with Lori my last year of teaching and so enjoyed getting to know her. She is a picture of femininity and sweetness, so I thought her cake should be the same. I was very pleased with the end result. Congratulations, Lori!

Now THAT'S my kind of cake!!

On Friday I had the pleasure of making a birthday cake for my friend Lee's fiance's birthday. It was nice to do a WAHOO cake! The top was the V and cross sabers, and the sides said Go Hoos and Wahoowa. So FUN!

Operation Air, Land, and Sea

My two most recent cakes are described by the title to this post. Sweet Piper picked a dumbo cake for her 6th Birthday accented with pink and green. Dumbo qualifies for "land" AND "air" for all of my non-Disney watching readers.

And for the "sea," I did a cake for our pastor's birthday with the Naval Academy insignia. 
It's hard to tell, but the lettering and border are navy and golden yellow.

Hokie Birthday

The latest cake was a Hokie football cake to celebrate Colin's 6th birthday. It's decked out in maroon and orange and has footballs on the sides of the cake. It turned out really well, but this cake was PAINFUL to do... Not really, but don't get any wrong ideas, my collegiate loyalties still lie solidly with UVA!!

Happy Birthday, Colin!
