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 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!

Catching Up (AGAIN!)

I’ve included Birthday, Holiday and a Religious cake from the past few weeks! You can click on each picture to make it bigger and bring up a description of it! Thanks for being patient with me! More cakes to come in a few days!

Pink is Pretty

I just love the quilted look of this cake, and the pink ribbon roses, and the little pearls, and the fluffiness of the vanilla buttercream on the cupcakes…okay, I loved it all!

Emily we loved the cake and cupcakes. Carrot was the favorite! Almost too pretty to eat! ~ Erica

I also loved delivering this cake!  The little one that was the reason for the cake had the same kind of hair that my youngest son had when he was an infant (I miss that hair!)…I’ll leave you with a bonus picture of my son when he was only a few weeks old!

Love that fluff!

Love that fluff!

Bowling, Birthday & Bishop

Bowling Birthday Cake

Bowling Birthday Cake

This cake was ordered by a wife for the surprise birthday to celebrate the 30th birthday and a 300 game for her husband.  This cake was fun to make and also the first time I’ve used an airbrush!

Emily makes the most amazing cakes around. She made the bowling cake for my husbands 30th birthday party and it was a hit (picture on website.) Many of the Birthday guest asked for her contact info and have used her for more than one cake. I truly believe she can make any cake idea into reality. You dream it and she creates it. ~ Bethany

Cake for the Bishop

Cake for the Bishop

Dad asked me to make a cake for his Church.  Their bishop was coming to their Church for a visit.  The fondant cutout was NOT as easy as it looks!

A Baptism, Some Birthdays & an Anniversary

The first cake was for my husband’s cousin’s daughter’s baptism (whew!).  It was a fun cake and I enjoyed testing out some new ways to do things!

The second two cakes were ordered by my Dad for an October birthday party at his work.  I really enjoyed going back to the Wilton-flower roots, as this is my 1-year anniversary month for when I first started taking classes.  It was then that I realized how much I truly enjoyed decorating and creating cakes!  So, Thanks Dad!

Twin’s Baptism Cake and a Baby Shower

The top two cakes are pictures of a Baptism cake for the twins from this cake and this cake.  I wasn’t thrilled at first on how this cake came out…seems kind of flat to me, but it’s growing on me more every time I look at the picture!

The second cake was the first time I’ve actually ever modeled something to look like something else!  Mickey Mouse is SO recognizable, it worried me a little to try to do something like that, but I think he turned out really cute!

Everyone loved the cake it was not flat like you said – I loved it and everyone that ate it said it was the best they ever had. The carrot cake was a big hit and they were eating the crumbs – The kids loved the strawberry cake with the filling. Guests said they never had a cake filled with fresh strawberries before. – sorry it took so long for me to put my comment. Best cake yet! – It took a lot to go above the lemon cake.  ~Ginny

I am so sorry for taking so long in getting back. Everyone loved the cake and especially the children that were there. They still rave after all this time about how delicious it was. I haven’t been on your website in awhile and have seen some new cakes that I just may have to order. Thank you again for the wonderful job you did for my daughters baby shower.  ~Cindy

Birthdays, Baptisms and Bangs…oh my!

This was a BUSY weekend!  There was a first birthday cake (with a dozen cupcakes too), a big baptism cake and 2 dozen cupcakes for a 4th of July celebration!  This coming week will be busy too…a birthday cake for my son and my first wedding cake!

This cake was awesome!! Everyone at the party commented on how wonderful it looked and then when we ate it, everyone was yet again impressed at how tasty and moist it was!!! Thank you, Emily for making my son’s cake and first birthday so special and memorable!!! ~Jennifer Flanagan

We wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake for Zachary’s baptism.  It looked great and tasted even better!  I love decorating cakes myself but now with three kids I can’t ever imagine having the time it takes to complete ones like I did when my girls were little.  I’m sure we’ll be in touch with you again for future celebrations. ~Nicole Lowe
