Nautical Baby Shower

I made a cake for Ben and Molly's baby shower on Saturday. The theme of their son Isaac's nursery is blue and yellow sailboats. The cake turned out great. I think the ones that look the best are those with simple designs and just a few colors.

The people at our church have amazing talents and have used them to honor this family. One lady made the bedding (which is STUNNING) and another painted a picture for the nursery to match the theme (also beautiful). Can't wait to meet little Isaac!!

Bieber Fever

Friday I made a cake for Jerica's birthday. She was having a Justin Bieber themed party. It's hard to tell from the picture, but the silver is actually sparkly--I got some Wilton pearl dust to try (completely edible, don't worry!) and it worked great! Overall I was pretty pleased with the cake... Doing a person in icing is very difficult. Hope you enjoyed, Jerica! Happy Birthday!


Thursday night I made a paintball themed birthday cake for one of Nathan's coworkers' sons. It was a special birthday--his 18th! Happy Birthday, Austin!

Sweet Briar Celebration

Last night I made a cake for a lady who has the sweetest occasion to celebrate. Margaret and her husband are traveling to Florida to have a mini-reunion with her closest friends from Sweet Briar College to celebrate them all turning 80 this year! What a blessing it is to be 80 and traveling that far AND to have friendships that have lasted so long. I hope you all have a safe trip and a great time of fellowship!

TYrannosaurus Rex Cake

Our friends Kristin and Darren's son Tyson celebrated his 6th birthday on Wednesday! He's having a dinosaur-themed sleepover tonight and I did the cake. His mom said the scarier, the better, so what better dinosaur than the infamous T-Rex?! It was perfect, too, because Tyson goes by "Ty," hence the title of this post. Happy Birthday, Tyson!

One of my sweet little girls I teach at church, Gabriella, recently celebrated her 5th birthday. She wanted a cake to go with the newest Disney princess movie--Tangled.

Happy Birthday, Gabriella! You are definitely a princess to me!

Hampden Sydney Graduation Cake

Gail's son Marshall just graduated from Hampden Sydney on Mother's Day weekend. She liked the Naval Academy Insignia cake I'd done for our pastor, so she wanted to help celebrate with Marshall by getting a cake with HS's insignia.

What an honor it is as a mother to watch your children grow. I pray that I am given the grace to see my own children grow up and become God-glorifying adults as they celebrate milestones like college graduation.
