Hello all. We have just had the most amazingly wonderful week of weather in Indiana. I mean, crazy awesome. I have not had my AC on for a week… IN JULY!!! It has been awesome. Decorating a cake becomes so much better by a breezy screen door.
So let me show you what I made while enjoying the splendor of 70’s in July…
This one was for a little sweetie that loves unicorns
Here are some beautiful ruffled baby shower cupcakes
These were for a soccer crazy little man. His mom is so cool that she got a cookie cake for his actual birthday and another cake for his party with friends!
This one was for a Ball state student.
And finally, my fave from last week. The pinwheels are gumpaste and were so much fun to make. This was for a very lucky little one year old. I forgot to get a picture with the smash cake. WHoops!
Hello, cake lovers. Sorry I am a couple days behind this week. I am blessed with so much business that I haven’t had time this week to update my blog! This week I have lots of fun firsts. I can’t wait to share them with you next week.
In the meantime, check out what was cooking in my kitchen last week…
Here’s a birthday cake that would work for either gender and any time of year.
This one was 4th of July theme for a birthday boy.
How about a prescription for rest, relaxation, and fun?! That’s just what this retiring pharmacist got!
This one was for two babies from the same family that were being baptized. This used an older technique called Cornelli lace, which you can see how to do here.
Well, that wraps up June! I can’t believe summer break is halfway over already. I am loving all my time with my kids. I hope you are all making the most of your summer and enjoying every minute!
Here’s a fun, girly grad cake. There’s always a fun way to incorporate your school colors but keep it stylish.
Fun colorful cupcakes! I made 175 of these last week, but 12 of them photographs just fine.
This was one for my Mother in law and sister in law whose birthdays are only a week apart.
BAM! POW! Holy rusted metal, Batman! Here’s a fun super hero cake!
This one was definitely a first for me. This was for a Cross Fit themed baby shower! That’s one hot mama!
This one was my absolute favorite from last week. I am so MAD at myself though because I didn’t realize the pics I took were blurry. So sad. Hopefully the sight of it will make you squeal with delight like the birthday girl did when she saw it…in spite of the blurry pictures.
So that’s it! This week has a lot on the books too, so come back next week to check them out!
Hello and welcome back! Thanks to all of you that keep coming back to see what I’ve been making and welcome to you newcomers. Last week was fun because I got to do some new techniques I had never tried. I also got to make a cake for a very special event at my church. Take a look at what was cooking in my kitchen last week…
Here’s bright, fun cake for a Curious George themed party
Let me explain the ridiculousness of this one. This was for a banquet at my church that was Sound of Music themed. This is the face of our Music Director who was retiring from his ministry position. My husband did the photo shop handy work while I did the cake. We make a pretty good team, don’t ‘cha think?
Here’s a sheet cake I made to accompany it. Lots of people were at this fun event so we needed lots of cake! Here’s a tutorial for scoring a cake like this one.
This last one was a bigger challenge than I anticipated because I don’t do well with architectural cakes. Straight lines are my nemesis. Dr. Who fans will recognize this as the Tardis phone booth that transports the characters through time.
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! I can’t believe it’s Wednesday! Having a holiday weekend really threw my schedule for a loop! We had a fantastic time doing fun stuff like neighborhood cookouts and the Indy500. I hope you all had a nice holiday honoring those who have served our country.
Here’s what was cooking in my kitchen last week…
Lego!! This one was super fun to do. The mom was going to add actual Lego pieces and “guys” to the top. The birthday boy’s greeting is written around the sides.
These cupcakes were for a class party. The lucky teacher gets the one with the gumpaste tag on it.
These cupcakes were for a little sweetie that just loves pink!
It was kind of a light week last week due to a pretty complicated cake getting rescheduled. This week will not be that way. Come back next week to see all the fun stuff I am working on now!
Good morning! I am GIDDY today because it is the last Monday of the school year! That’s right, folks. Nine more school days and I get EIGHT WEEKS with my kids. I can’t WAIT! In addition, I got to do four really fun cakes last week. Take a look…
Here’s my “weekly Frozen cake”. This one is the first one I got to do as a sheet cake.
This one was a 30th birthday for a French teacher. Ooh la la!
This one was for the sister in law of the above cake’s recipient. They had a joint 30th birthday party. This girl loves to shop!
This one was for an IU grad with a music degree. Her mom was so precious to work with. Every correspondence oozed with pride for her daughter. I truly hope I get to do many more cakes for that family!
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.
