Hello all! Guess what…my kids are out of SCHOOL! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. For eight weeks, we can hang out together and have fun as nature intended…in a pool. I am so blessed to work from home and be able to spend all this time with them. My husband works so hard at his job to make this possible and I am so grateful.
But enough about my super hot, hard working husband…here’s what was cooking in my kitchen last week.
Here are some cupcakes for a tea party themed baby shower. My favorite ones are the turquoise ruffled ones.
This one was my favorite last week. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but TOOT TOOT! Isn’t this cute?! I LOVE doing Dr. Suess cakes. There’s a tutorial for how to stripe a cake here.
Here’s a grad cake for a gal on her way to the University of Alabama. Roll tide!
Hello all! Last week was super fun. I got to do three first birthday cakes with smash cakes and two of them were for moms I have known since sixth grade! Take a look…
Baby boy blue cuteness
This was my favorite this week. I LOVE the outlined black daisies with the red centers. So chic for a baby!
This was my biggest challenge last week. Making a tiny pinata is tough! I am happy with how it turned out and the mom was thrilled, which is what I was after! I have a tutorial for the fondant balls on wires here.
How about a sassy zebra stripe for this girl’s spa party?
Here’s an elegant ruffled cake for a bridal shower.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you saw something you liked!
Last week was my biggest challenge since I started my business in January. I had a full calendar, but couldn’t turn down two fun additions at the last minute. I was busy, busy, busy. It was so worth it! Everyone was happy with their cakes! I even got some super cute pics from a mom of her sweetie smashing her first cake. Those pictures made me completely forget the stress of last week. Here’s her little chevron cake.
And here’s the little sweetie enjoying it!
This was my favorite one last week. Sliming it was just too much fun.
This one was for a sweet friend of mine from my church choir. She’s a wonderful woman with a beautiful family. She and her husband have been married 59 years!
As I’ve said before, no week is complete without a Frozen themed cake. This one was the first to use the ruffle effect along the bottom. It really made it elegant, didn’t it?
This one was for the twin of the gal who got the Frozen cake. What a couple of lucky kids, huh?
Giddy up! Another denim and cow print for a first birthday party!
Ack! I’m a day late! As my children are wrapping up their school year, my schedule is getting thrown off. Sorry I’m late but here’s what was cooking in my kitchen last week…
A triple chocolate birthday cake should do the trick!
This little sweety loves her chickens and horse at her house and wanted her birthday cake to reflect that. The horsey is hiding on the back.
How’s this for a baby shower theme?! This child’s life has infinite possibilities!
This one I forgot to get a picture of before it was picked up, so the mom was nice enough to send me one. I don’t usually get to see them full of candles and with added dolls, so this was fun to see! This is the sugared cake I did in this week’s Tip o the Week.
No week would be complete lately without a Frozen themed cake! This party actually had Elsa come to the party!
Hope seeing this was worth the wait. What do you feel inspired to create? I would love to read your ideas in the comments! Have a blessed week.
Hello and happy Monday! Last week had lots of fun cakes. Check out what was cooking in my kitchen…
This one was for a teen that calls himself N8MC. He actually posted it on his Instagram account as a “sick cake”. I have arrived!
Here are some primary color cupcakes that can work for any occasion! These were for a super hero party.
Here’s a cake for a big fan of Cars! This uses the transfer technique I taught in a previous tip o the week post.
Here’s a fun way to use edible images. This was for a friend of mine and his wife found this selfie on her sister’s phone.
What’s a bachelorette party without cake?
This week is Holy Week and my favorite time of year. For me, it’s a time to be reflective and grateful for the ultimate sacrifice my Savior paid for me. As nature comes back to life around us, I am in awe of the God I serve that created it all. Happy Holy Week and Happy Easter, everyone!
Last week was busy! Along with cake orders, I had two personal events for which I made cakes. That’s right…my own friends and family eat my cake too. Proof that it must actually taste good! Check out last week’s cakes:
This one was for a Hello Kitty fan.
Here is a smash cake and cupcakes for “Mommy’s little Monster”
Here is a bridal shower cake for a couple’s shower. This shade of blue is one of the wedding colors.
This cake was for my son’s Scouting Pack. It was a 30 serving cake along with 125 cupcakes! It was a labor of love.
The den of boys that was “crossing over” from Webelos to Boy Scouts got special recognition. Their den mascot is this bird.
This cake was the most special of all! My husband and I just completed the nine week Financial Peace University class by Dave Ramsey. Our church hosted a church wide initiative. In addition to the videos being shown to large groups, we were placed in small discussion groups. These people have become dear friends over these past nine weeks. We had a graduation party at our house last Friday to celebrate all of the great changes our families are making to obtain financial freedom. If you have never taken this class, read Dave Ramsey’s books, or listened to his radio show, I highly recommend it. Although my husband and I have always done fine, we now feel like we have a new direction towards “living like no one else so we can live like no one else”. Plus, we have all these sweet new friends! It has truly been a blessing.
This cake was a special opportunity for me. A friend of mine works with a gal who finished up her chemo last week for breast cancer. They threw her a celebration dinner and needed a cake. I normally don’t do anything risque, but a cancer victory merits an exception! Last night I got the sweetest thank you email from the honoree which made stepping out of my comfort zone completely worth it.
This trio was for a little cowboy’s first birthday. There were 3 dozen cupcakes with it, but you guys get the idea. My readers are super clever, after all.
This one was for a dear friend’s parents celebrating their 39th wedding anniversary. What an accomplishment. In this day and age, people don’t always stay married 39 days, let alone years. God bless you, Conner family!
This cake sure is popular for 1st birthdays! It’s my second time doing it in less than a month! And why wouldn’t it be the perfect 1st birthday cake? At that age, they haven’t always gotten into a character, but what toddler doesn’t love their Cheerios?
I have seen a lot of one year olds that don’t want anything to do with their 1st birthday cake. But put this in front of them, and they will at least pick the Cheerios off!
This was for a movie party. Guess what movie they were seeing…
If you haven’t seen the Lego movie, go NOW. It is absolutely wonderful. Regardless of your age, it is laugh out loud hilarious.
