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!
Hey, ya’all! wonderin’ where I’ve been? VA-CA-TION!!! I got away to Michigan with my wonderful husband for four days and then took a week of no cakes for my kids. We wrapped up the week with a trip to Holiday World in Santa Claus Indiana. We have had a great time, but now I’m back to the grind. Of course by grind I mean my awesome work from home job that enables me to be creative.
Here’s what was cooking in my kitchen before vacation.
Here’s a fun grad cake that’s unique, but easy to cut and serve to a large crowd.
This was a wedding cake for an awesome Purdue couple! My husband and I are both Boilermakers and are VERY happily married, so I’m sure it will play a large part in their marriage success.
Not too much this post, but next week will be chock full! I have 200 cupcakes and five other orders!
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.
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!
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.
