Polka Dots and Ladybugs

This past weekend I also had the privilege to make a cake for Raven's baby shower. It was special because Raven and Lauren (who ordered the cake) and I all went to middle and high school together, and Lauren and I even went to elementary school together, too! Lauren wanted a smaller cake, just for Raven as the guest of honor. The shower was done based on the theme Raven chose for her bedding, which was brightly colored and had all sorts of crazy polka dots. They were incorporating ladybugs into the theme as well. You can see them hiding around the bottom of the cake! Thanks, Lauren, and Congratulations on baby Ava, Raven!!

Polka Dots and Damask

I made a cake for my friend Lauren's baby shower last weekend in honor of the anticipated arrival of her son Nathaniel (Nate). It was really fun to do... The shower didn't really have an over-arching theme per say, so they just asked for brown and blue with some polka dots. The design I came up with also included some Damask patterns on the sides. The Bible verse was really the focal point of the cake. "For this child I prayed and the Lord has granted me my petition..." 1 Samuel 1:27 I think it turned out great, but I don't think the picture really does it justice. Congrats, Lauren and Chris!! We can't wait to meet little Nate!

VT Old School

Recently I made a groom's cake for Marshall and Donna's son. He's a HUGE Virginia Tech fan! I did the cake in the shape of the older VT logo. It's hard to tell because the cake board is white, but the cake is just the letters. Hope the wedding went as smoothly as making the cake did! Congratulations!!

Turning 50 with a BANG!

My mom and my sister-in-law share a birthday on July 7th (Yes, this post is very late... I just have had a hard time making time for the computer lately!). This year we celebrated them when we got together for the 4th of July, so I did a red, white, and blue themed cake. This was the Big 5-0 for my mom, so since she was turning fifty, she got most of the attention on the cake. It turned out pretty well! Happy Birthday, Mom and Kendra!!
