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

Rings Around the Razorback

Arkansas Razorbacks Cake

Arkansas Razorbacks Cake

I am thrilled with this cake!  I love it when a cake is a challenge, and I love the way this one came out!  I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at the unveiling of this cake!  It was a surprise for a big Razorbacks fan that just earned his military stripes.  His wife was throwing him a big surprise party.  Congratulations, Jonathan!  Gerrr!

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!

Birthdays, a Shower and a Going-Away

Spiderman Birthday Cake

I made this cake for the same little one as this cake, which was the first cake I ever made for someone other than family! Happy 4th Birthday, Jude!

I made this cake for a little lady turning 5. It was modeled after the latest American Doll. The birthday girl was getting one for her big day. Happy 5th Birthday, Taylor!

Birthdays & Babies

The first 2 cakes were birthday cakes. I love it when cake requests come in for the same weekend that are fairly similar! I also love it when flavors match, but these two were very different! The gift box cake was Dark Chocolate Cake with Coconut Filling. The 30th birthday cake’s bottom layer was Banana Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Filling and the top layer was Vanilla White Cake with Orange Curd Filling. I like it when people are adventurous with their cake flavors too!

The cookies were for a baby shower. They were handpainted to match the invitations to the party.

Filling in the Blanks!

Yet another catch-up post!  For starters, there is an actual contact form now on my Contact page, so now you can use it!

Next, here are a few cakes that I haven’t blogged about yet!

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

From the Gift Box Cake: “Loved it! It looked so realistic that some guests actually thought it was a present.” ~Kay
