Winter ONEderland

My friend Shannon asked me to do a Winter ONEderland themed 1st birthday cake for her son Daniel back in January. She used lots of blues and white as the color scheme and cute penguins were the theme for the party. I did snowflakes on the sides of the cake. Happy first birthday, Daniel!! You are such a sweet heart!

High Flying Birthday

My friend Lisa and her family celebrated her dad, Larry's 60th birthday back in January. It was a pleasure to do the cake for the event. Larry has his pilot's license and even owns an airplane. The color scheme for the party was designed around his plane, and Lisa asked that I do the same for the cake. The image came from the design on the tail of the plane. I did that part in marshmallow fondant... thought I'd try my hand at something new. It came out fine, but as a personal choice, I just don't like working with fondant as much as buttercream. The party was a huge success, and all of Lisa's hard work was very fruitful in making it a truly special celebration.

Super Hero Birthday

Back in January I did a cake for my friend Amber's son Cole. He wanted a super hero party (of course, what 4 year old  boy doesn't!?!) We narrowed down the list to 3 super heros--Batman, the Hulk, and Captain America. I did the "comic book words" on the side. I think it turned out really cute! Happy Birthday, Cole! You're a super hero to me!!
