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.
