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

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

Grandma’s 80th Birthday Cake

80th Birthday Cake

80th Birthday Cake

This is the cake I did for my Grandma’s 80th birthday this past weekend. It is a culmination of some of her ‘loves’…traveling, teaching and gardening.

The bottom layer was a suitcase covered in edible luggage stickers from some of the places she’s traveled.  The next tier was the “teacher” tier and it had an edible blackboard, an apple made from puffed rice cereal treats and a turtle.  I did the top tier of her birthday cake with a flower pot made out of cake and the sugar Ranunculus flowers because for as long as I’ve been alive (and much longer I’m sure) she’s had envious really nice gardens in her homes.  The Plumeria blossoms were on the cake because she loved Hawaii so much she bought a pair of Plumeria earrings (which she happened to be wearing that day!)

Happy Birthday, Grandma!  I really enjoyed planning out and making your birthday cake!  You are a wonderful inspiration to me–your determination, stamina, hard work, thoughtfulness, caring, compassion and so much more!  I love you!

“How does one thank you for such an incredible gift–your cake, your talent, your time–all precious…a gift like that has such a short life, but it will last in my memory.” ~Grandma

September’s Birthday Cakes

FINALLY, a blog post…with content and pictures!! Don’t fall off your chairs, folks…I know it’s been a while! I’ve decided that instead of doing separate posts for each cake, that I would group them into categories! I’ll start off with the birthday cakes from the month of September (and a few from the end of August too!).

***Click on each of the pictures for a description of the cakes!***

To the Farm

Barn Birthday Cake

Barn Birthday Cake

This cake was for a really cute little 2-year-old!  When his mommy asked him what he wanted on his cake he said he wanted tractors and cows!  So cute!  I love making the animals for these farm-themed cakes!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Lucas!  Hope you got everything you could ever wish for!

Here’s a collage of the details:

Gift Box Wedding Cake

The “cake gods” were smiling on me today!  I made an almost-last-minute decision to deliver this cake in pieces and assemble on-site.  Boy am I glad I made that decision!  The roads to get to the venue were windy, hilly, pot-holey and SUPER bumpy!  I’m 100% positive that had I stacked it, it would either not have made it, or I would still be trying to drive it there…very, very slowly!  The beautiful bride is a cousin of a few of my cousins and she chose a GORGEOUS place to be married!  The venue was almost out in the woods and had lots of windows viewing the surrounding trees.  I wish I would have taken some pictures, but guest were starting to arrive as I finished.

Congratulations, Michelle and David!  May you have many, many happy years together!  It was a real pleasure working with you to create your special cake!

Simple Girly Birthday Cake

Simple Girly Birthday Cake

Another cake from this weekend…this was a very simple, small cake that I made for a birthday party.  It was made to look like the party ware.

Emily ~ I just wanted to email you and tell you how absolutely adorable and wonderful the cake was for my sister’s party.  Everyone could not stop talking about it.  I was so excited about it I almost did wait until present time to show it off.  It also tasted as good as it looked.   I just cannot say enough outstanding things about it.  It was perfect!  Thank you again for delivering it.  Your card is on my fridge and I have bragged to all of my friends at work how cute it was.  We will definitely be ordering in the future. ~ Jennifer

Homer Simpson Postage Stamp Groom’s Cake

Homer Simpson Groom's Cake

Homer Simpson Groom's Cake

This cake was for a rehearsal dinner last night.  The groom loves the Simpsons, so his mom requested the cake as a surprise.  I love the way it turned out!  I got to use my airbrush again, so that was fun!  And I created a stencil for the first time for Homer’s face.

Best wishes to the bride and groom…today is their wedding day!  Hopefully the rain will hold off!  Congratulations!

How-to will follow on how to clean up black food coloring from white fondant!

Just had to let you know right away that your cake was totally awesome.  Our son was excited about it – all  his friends, also.  Lots of pictures were taken—it was delicious and picture perfect.  We gave your web site address to lots of people.  Thanks again, you are very talented. ~Betty
