This was my last pre-baby cake. I made it for my nieces 1st birthday. How could I pass up a first birthday party cake? And the beautiful part of it all is that when I make a cake for my sister I have total artistic freedom. Such a beautiful thing! So here's her sweet cake.

So my very sweet brother-in-laws mom called for a cake for her neighbor who was turning 50! Her only request? It just HAD to center around her two beloved dogs!! So...here it is!
And did I mention once again that I was pregnant while making it? Hence the total baby brain in the upside down shingles. Yowzers.

So, did anyone tell you how hard doing cakes was when your are VERY pregnant and EXTREMELY tired?? Well, let me tell you...it's not easy! I had two weddings this summer. The first one was just for cupcakes and a small cutting cake. The brides colors were black, white and lime green. She wanted a black flower on all of the cupcakes and the stencil on the cutting cake. I've never done a stencil before so I was super nervous but it turned out really well! I didn't get a chance to get great photos of either of these cakes as I was so tired when I was done that I just forgot all about photos!
Wedding #2 was WAYYYYY more difficult. It was like 100 degrees outside and the bride wanted CREAM CHEESE ICING! Cream Cheese! So, cream cheese gets super soft under fondant and softens it - resulting in wrinkles. The top and bottom tier of this cake were covered in much sturdier icings but the middle, which had the cream cheese, did start to wrinkle a bit from the house to the event. I was soooo dissapointed. I've made a new rule that I won't do cream cheese under fondant for weddings. It's just too touchy. But I still like how the cake turned out.

Okay, I have to say that this is one of my ALL time
favorite cakes. I LOVE Dr. Seuss and so when I got the request
for a smash cake I couldn't resist!!
Now...I put the picture in at the end to prove that us cake makers
definitely make mistakes sometimes. It was late, I was tired...there's really no excuse!!

So this customer loved the "ELLA" Cake that I had made last year. The one with Sophie the Giraffe on top. But she wanted a couple more animals. Love how it all came together!

The customer saw a cake like this and fell in love with it. I Love how mine turned out. So bright and fun! Those bananas sure took alot of time though! But I sincerely loved making this cake. Hope everyone likes it!

LOVE how this cake turned out. I was given a picture of the party theme and was told that she loved the sesame street cake design and I got to go to town from there! Love how it turned out!
So I've had alot of twin birthdays this last couple of months! This one was for an old friend. Love old friends - but the pressure is on to really bring it! I didn't want to disappoint. I like how it turned out...I would probably change a couple of things now but still like the end result!
|WHAT?? The maker makes a rare appearance!!|
