My friend Kim is one of my best customers. She doesn't let an occasion go by without having me do a cake for her and her family. It was an honor to make a cake to celebrate her beautiful life as she turned another year older. She loves purple and flowers, so I added some navy for contrast, and Viola! A pretty cake for a beautiful lady!

My friend Shannon and I threw our friend Leslie a baby shower back in January in honor of her little girl on the way, Kerrigan Grace. We did the shower in gray and pink and incorporated both a cute giraffe and a chevron patter into the decor and the cake. Sweet Kerrigan was a perfect Valentine's baby! I have had the privilege of watching her and her big brother for a few weeks, and she is just a doll! We love you Leslie and Kerrigan!

Our little buddy, Cohen celebrated his birthday back in January and requested an Angry Birds Space birthday cake. I think Angry Birds has a vast following, but Cohen is probably one of its biggest fans ever, even at the age of four! Hope you loved your cake as much as we love you, Cohen!!
It's funny to me how boys are just ingrained with "boyness" even from the youngest of ages. This cake is proof of just that. Our little friend Daniel turned 2 back in January and his favorite toy at the time was a green tractor. It was one of those items that was just as essential to pack in the diaper bag as the diapers themselves! So, it was only fitting that a John Deere tractor adorned his birthday cake. Happy birthday, Daniel!!
Vickie had a birthday several months ago and I had the privilege of doing the cake. Yellow is her favorite color, so I just went for an elegant swirl design and added a complimentary light blue color to it as well. Happy Birthday, Vickie!!
Samantha Celebrated her 18th birthday back in January. Her top gift request was a pair of giraffe print Toms and I'm guessing from there the whole party turned giraffe! She wanted a three-layer cake (the first I'd done!) all in giraffe print with bright blue accents. I'm sure it was a great celebration!
Helen, one of those special New Year's Eve babies, has me do a cake for her every year for her birthday. Her favorite flower is a daisy, so I know to expect that request every year and then she adds a little something else to spice it up from year to year. This year she wanted an angel and pink and green to be the colors. Here's how it all came together! Happy Birthday, Helen!!

The youth group at our church celebrates birthdays each month as a group and for December they decided to combine the celebration with their Tacky Christmas Sweater Party, so that dictated the theme for the cake! Happy December Birthdays to some truly tacky teens! ;)
Colleen's son Sean might be one of my biggest fans. She said he checks my blog often for new updates, so a big shout-out to Sean!! He celebrated his birthday a while back and had a unique request. He wanted to cake to resemble a Sour Patch Kids candy box. I think it turned out pretty well for looking like a cardboard box, and I'm sure it tasted better than the real thing! Happy Birthday, Sean!

I did a cake for Herm who celebrated his 80th birthday in 2012. His wife asked me to put a picture of an old radio on it. The one she sent me a picture of was actually made the year he was born. I think they had a very nice celebration with friends and family.
Life has been busy, so I'm finally posting some pictures from cakes I did 3 months ago back in October! Some of you may have even thought I had given up on the whole cake thing... not so. Just busy!
Here's a cake I did for several of the students in the youth group at our church who were celebrating birthdays in October. Again, my lens was very dirty... at some point my sweet husband cleaned it for me, so the pictures I post will get clearer eventually!
