Spring Has Sprung!

Spring Tree Trunk Cake

Spring Tree Trunk Cake

I made this cake for a school’s auction.  I love how all of the elements came together…especially the fungus!  Their theme was “God doing new works”…I think Spring fits in perfectly!  The entire cake was around 14-15”.  The little bunny was around 2″ long and about 1 1/2″ tall!

Tastings from Around the World

Tastings from Around the World

I made this cake for a fundraiser at my son’s school.  They hosted a Wine and Beer Tasting event that included items up for raffle…sure hope the winner of this cake shares! This year’s theme was Wines and Beers from around the world.  The suitcase, instead of being covered with travel labels, is covered in edible wine labels from around the world.  The crackers and grapes were made from gum paste.  Stay tuned…I’ll be announcing a few new flavors in the coming weeks!

Recent Groom’s Cakes

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!

Pool Ball Cupcake Groom's Cake

Pool Ball Cupcake Groom's Cake

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

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!***

From the Tools Cake: “It was awesome and survived the trip to Nashville very well! We all had a good laugh as we ate it in the partially remodeled house.” ~Kay

The remaining cakes from the weekend

Beach Birthday Cake

Beach Birthday Cake

This cake was loosely based off of the partyware for the birthday party.  I’ve wanted to try the plumeria flower for a long time and have had a tutorial printed for over a year, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity!  I love this cake…it makes me really just want to pull up a beach chair and read a book under the sun!  It’s hard to see from the picture, but there were actually two different borders on this cake.  The one you can’t really see was a “wave” pattern on the other side.  I used a white and blue striped bag to get a whitecap effect…wish I would have gotten a picture of it!

Soccer Birthday Cake

Soccer Birthday Cake

This cake was for a young man that got this soccer cake last year for his birthday…maybe next year, we’ll try and change it up a bit! 🙂

Happy Birthday, Jackson!

Graduation Cakes and Some Strays

So this has been a SUPER busy week.  These are only 2 of 4 cakes this week (and a bonus one I haven’t had a chance to upload yet until now).  I’ll upload the rest later this weekend!

Preschool Graduation Cake

Preschool Graduation Cake

The first one is one that I was asked to make for my son’s preschool graduation.  I had a lot of fun making it, although I’m going to have to try to figure out what is wrong with the black ink on my edible image printer, because all of the writing ended up having to be hand-painted on…and I don’t write straight, much less paint words straight!  I’m happy with how it turned out and everyone seemed to be enjoying it!  Congrats, Ben…you’re going to LOVE kindergarten!

Purple Polka Dotted Grad Cake

Purple Polka Dotted Grad Cake

This cake was for a local grad.  The school colors were purple and white…yes, that’s purple…for some reason, that color doesn’t photograph well…perhaps it’s the cloudy day!  Congratulations, Jordan!

Wizard of Oz Cake v.2

Wizard of Oz Cake v.2

Normally, when someone asks me to do a cake from my gallery, I like to change it up a little (or reinvent the wheel).  I LOVE the design of this cake, so I really didn’t want to do anything major to change it.  I did do a few minor things, but mainly it’s the same!  Happiest of Fifth Birthdays to you Jewel!
