Oh, Sweet Ethan!!

Oh my!! Yet another cake that was a HUGE joy to make! You see it was for a very special little boy, Ethan!! He just turned one. His momma is a very dear friend to me!

She has been such an encouragement to me in our new stage in life of motherhood! And Ethan is Zeke's buddy!

Obviously, Ethan loves Sesame Street!!

...this was his smash cake...

And of course...extra batter means extra cuppies!!

Welcome to the Jungle, Baby!!!!

Our great friends Glenn and Caroline are having a baby!

Well Caroline will be having the baby! And it's going to be a boy!!!!

And I was so thankful to make the cake for their baby shower!

As you can see the theme was jungle. Too cute!

It was a lot of fun making all the animals.
I heard there were some kids at the shower who were fighting over who got to eat
Mr. Elephant!!

Congratulations Glenn and Caroline!!

A Small Wedding Celebration!

What a neat cake to make! This was for a good friend whose mother just remarried, and they were having a small family celebration for the new couple.
Did I mention that her mother is in her 70's!
She is such a sweet lady, and I was so flattered to be asked to make this cake for her and her new main squeeze!

The initials are B H R. Not exactly like I wanted them, but I am learning!
Free hand work is so hard! All the decoration was done in royal icing.
This was my first time using it and I think I have a long way to go!

I always use any extra batter, so cuppies are such a nice thing to "throw" in with a cake!
These were my first cuppies that I have ever used fondant on.
I sure hope the newlyweds enjoy their celebration and their cake!

Zeke's 1st Birthday!!!!!!

This is my favorite cake so far!
Not so much because of the way it looks but for who I made it for! My sweet little Zeke!
I cannot believe my baby is 1!! What an amazing joy he has been to A and I this past year.
What an amazing God we serve, and what an amazing gift He has given us in Zeke!
My sweet momma helped me with it. She made all of the cute animals and the garden.
She was lifesaver for sure. If it weren't for her I would have been up all night!

That garden is so cute, I could just eat it up...
And I did!

The other kiddos loved eating all the animals!

This was Zeke's smash cake. He LOVED it!!
I have been sneaking him icing here and there, so I wasn't too surprised!

Princess Adyson!

Oh my, oh my! What a sweetie pie Princess Adyson is!
What a joy to make her very 1st birthday cake!
Her party was princess themed, can you tell?!
She is one of Zeke's friends, and A and I are good friend with her parents.
Needless to say this cake was close to my heart!

Some cuppies to go along with her cake!
The big one was her "smash" cake.
She went for it, but in such a sweet dainty way!

Everything was edible-except for the tutu!!

Sweet Emmy!

This cake was a joy to do. You see it was for a very special little girl, Emmy!
She was turning 5 and wanted a pretty pink and purple cake with polka dots! So girly! I love those kinds of cakes! Her momma also put in an order for 22 cupcakes for Emmy to take to school and share with her friends. Lots of fun I say!

It was kind of nerve wracking sending this cake on its way. I always get nervous. You never know what people will think, not to mention if they will like how it tastes!
I did receive some great news from her mom though, after they picked up the cake, Emmy said, "My cake is not good, not great, but BRILLIANT!"
Needless to say, I slept well knowing that!!

Cake Decorating Class

So! I have been taking a cake decorating class, at my not so local Micheal's.

You see I drive about a half hour so that I can take cake decorating classes from Edna De La Cruz! She is pretty much amazing at what she does! Click here to see her website. You can also watch her how to videos on you tube for some AWESOME pointers!

I have mentioned a few times how hard it is to work with butter cream. I am learning! This was my first cake for class. Nothing to amazing, but very fun to do! Edna says it takes about a year to master butter cream...ugh!

This is the second cake! Having fun with color! on the inside!

Big Cuppies

I had some left over cuppies.
So why not try some new colors and styles?
Then pass them onto the ladies that work with my honey!

Ooooh did I mention they we the "messed" up ones?
Only on the outside, not on the inside!

Don't worry....
I think they will get eaten!
