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 CakeIsLife@gmail.com 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!

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!

Take Me Away…

This cake is for a wedding shower for a couple that is getting married on a beach. The mother-of-the-bride asked me to make a bride and groom flamingo for the topper…

Class Final Cake

This is the cake I made last night for the class final.  It is a white cake with oreo buttercream filling.  It is covered in chocolate fondant and decorated with gumpaste daisies.  I’m really going to miss going to these classes.  The next one is wired flowers, but I’m not sure when it will be available next…hopefully soon!
