Bad Blogger (Sorry!)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Please forgive me…I’ve been a BAD blogger, I know.  I’m sorry!  Allow me to explain!

First, I am a wife and mother to 2 VERY active little boys!  Then I bake and decorate cakes.  During the school year, I work as the school’s Kitchen Manager, cooking lunch for around 150 every day.  It’s an interesting job, very stressful and tiring.  I also serve on our church’s Pastoral Council and Youth Ministry Council, design and layout the school’s auction fundraiser program, co-lead Vacation Bible School, and I could probably go on, but I won’t bore you with all I do!  But you get the drift…I can’t say no and as a result, I’m a busy lady and blogging just got pushed into the VERY low-priority list (I’m sure there’s a lot of you out there that can relate)!  I promise to try harder!

I have been updating all of the galleries with new pictures of the cakes that I’ve been doing.  And if you want more up-to-the-minute updates (or as close as possible, anyway), you can follow me on Facebook…I promise, I update faster there!

There are big changes in store for Cake is Life in the future, including a newly redesigned website (there…I put it out there!  Now my husband HAS to do it!) 🙂

I assure you, I have been making cakes, I still LOVE to make them and will continue to take orders for them!  Email me at CakeIsLife@gmail.com to place your order or use the Contact Form here on the blog.

Thank you so much for your continued loyalty!  It is such a pleasure working with great people such as yourselves!  I’m honored to be part of your special events and I love it that you let me help you to create your perfect custom cake centerpieces!

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

Happy Birthday, Grandpa!

Many of you may not know that I have 2 very cute and fun boys, Benjamin (almost 6) and Samuel (almost 4).  They constantly ask me if they can help and generally get told no, because the particular thing I am making is going to someone else!  They are great assistants in the kitchen, so I enlisted their help to make my Dad (their Grandpa’s) birthday cupcakes!

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

Sweet 16 Birthday Cake

There have only been a few instances where people have asked me to recreate a cake that I have previously done before.  Most times, I will change elements of the design to make it a little new and fresh.  I think this is the first time I’ve kept with the original design so closely!  I love this cake design…it’s just so fun!  The mom wanted it tweaked a little to include the 16-year-old’s favorite colors: pink, orange and teal.  I love how they look like sherbet!  And I love the addition of the pearl luster too to make it shimmer!  Happy Sweet 16, Elly!
