Happy, Splashy Birthday!!

Last weekend I made a birthday cake for my friend Meggen's son, Jaxson. It's hard to believe that our kids are growing up so fast, her little guy is 4 now!! They had a pool party to celebrate, so the cake was a pool scene. Hope the weather was great and that Jaxson enjoyed his big day!!

Party on the Farm

Our friends Adam and Amy just celebrated Adam's dad's 60th birthday. He has a farm and cows and loves tractors. It was a pretty big party, so I was asked to do 2 cakes. One with a cow on it, and the other with a tractor. There were a couple of quirks with these cakes, but everything turned out great! Apparently not all tractors are green... Luckily Amy emailed me a couple of days before I did the cake and let me know he wanted a Massey Ferguson (red) tractor, NOT a John Deere (green) one because he really doesn't like John Deere. GOOD THING SHE TOLD ME!! When I think of a tractor, I think green... That would have been bad! Also, I found a picture of a cow online that I wanted to use to guide my design. I had just finished it when my husband came it and said, "Do you realize that cow has horns AND an utter?". I went with the design on the picture, never even thinking about the GENDER of the cow!!! BUT, I had Nathan quickly go online and look up whether or not female cows could have horns, and THEY CAN!! Whew! 2 disasters avoided, and 2 cakes I was pleased with! Hope the birthday boy was, too!

Cowboy Birthday

My friend Courtney's grandfather just turned 80!! To celebrate they were throwing him a cowboy themed birthday party. I was asked to do a cake in the shape of a cowboy boot from a template Courtney's mom found and sent me. The colors and design were also straight from the template. Hope you all had a rootin' tootin' good time!!

Preschool Graduation

I did a cake for the preschool class at our church's Child Development Center. Today is their graduation celebration!! The colors for the party are black and red. I'm sure it's hard for their mommies and daddies to believe that their little ones will be heading to kindergarten in a few months! I know my kiddos are growing up waaaay too fast for my liking!
