Dad loved his cake. He was impressed by the “stitching” on the toolbelt. My nieces and nephew fought over who got to eat the tools. ~Kay

Catching Up (AGAIN)! Part 2


Here is a recent wedding and groom’s cake I did for a fun couple! I LOVE the design of the wedding cake! Click on the pictures to bring them up bigger so you can see all the detail! I had a lot of fun making this cake!

Congratulations Laura and Ryan! May you live long, happy lives and always enjoy each other’s company!

These cakes were absolutely awesome! Thank you so much Emily for your hard work. They tasted as good as they looked (and I had three out of the four flavors). Thank you again for a fabulous job! ~Laura

And the Topsy Turvy Cake Winner is…

Topsy Turvy Vintage Toy Baby Shower Cake

The winner of the Topsy Turvy Cake from my class is:
Finding that winner proved to be a little more challenging than I expected, since no one followed the rules for posting comments!  I gave you all the benefit of the doubt though and created an Excel spreadsheet with everyone’s name on it and added multiples of names for becoming Facebook Fans, Twitter Followers or Blog Subscribers.  Then I copied and pasted the list into the “randomizer” at Random.org.  After putting them in random order, the winner was Kathie Opel.

Kathie chose to bring her cake to her friend’s baby shower.  The theme of the shower was “Vintage Toys”.  The flags came from the design on her invitations.  I’m thrilled with how this cake turned out!  The class was very fun…great company!  I learned some great techniques for making the Topsy Turvy Cake structurally sound.  I will, however, be doing the Topsy Turvy Cake a little differently in the future.  The cake will be a 6″ round with a 10″ round on the bottom.  It should really even have another tier to get the full effect too!  And it will have tapered tiers (larger at the top than at the bottom).

Congratulations to Kathie and to her friend Cara!

“I can’t thank you enough for the gorgeous cake!  It was perfect, and delicious as well!  Thank you so much!” ~ Kathie

2010 in Review

The following email was in my inbox this morning from WordPress, who, for at least the next few months, has hosted my blog since its inception.  I think it’s funny and I think that someone has too much time on their hands!  Just thought I’d pass it along!  Happy New Year and thank you for making 2010 a successful year!  Enjoy!

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

Oktoberfest Beer Stein Cake

Oktoberfest Beer Stein Groom's Cake

This cake was requested by a mom for her son’s groom’s cake as a surprise for their rehearsal dinner. It was delivered to a local brewery’s bottling plant that also serves as a restaurant and banquet hall. It was fun bringing the cake past all the customers at the brewery!  I should note that this cake was a total of about 20″ high and 9″ around.  The logo on the front was about 10″x6″ and the pretzel was about 6″ across!  It sat on a 20″ board.  This sucker was HUGE!  And according to the mom, people were licking the plates clean…I love it!

This cake went along with the Birch Tree Wedding Cake from this post. The bride wanted to surprise her future husband with a cool groom’s cake. I really liked how a simple design looks so cool!  And this bride was a fun one to work with!

“It was PERFECT and the best Carrot Cake I’ve ever eaten! I had three of them myself… not kidding! 😉 ” ~Angie
