Cakes for 7/7/14

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

Unicorn Birthday Cake

Here are some beautiful ruffled baby shower cupcakes

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!

Get out and enjoy the weather!  I know I will.

Cakes for 6/30/14

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.

Confetti Birthday Cake

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!

Pharmacy cake

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!

See ya next week!

Cakes for 06/23/14

Take a look at my busy, fun week!

Here’s a fun, girly grad cake.  There’s always a fun way to incorporate your school colors but keep it stylish.

Cheetah Print Grad Cake

Fun colorful cupcakes!  I made 175 of these last week, but 12 of them photographs just fine. :)

Neon Sprinkle Cupcakes

This was one for my Mother in law and sister in law whose birthdays are only a week apart.

White Daisy Cake

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!

Crossfit Baby Shower Cake and cupcakes

Crossfit cupcakes

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.

Minion Cake

Minion Cake Top

So that’s it!  This week has a lot on the books too, so come back next week to check them out!

Cakes for week of 06/16/14

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.

2014 Grad Cake

Here’s a fun grad cake that’s unique, but easy to cut and serve to a large crowd.

Yellow banded cake

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!

Cakes for 6/2/14

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

Curious George Cake

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?

Sound of Music Cake

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.

Music Note Sheet Cake

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.

Cakes for 5/12/14

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.

Frozen theme Sheet Cake

This one was a 30th birthday for a French teacher.  Ooh la la!

Eiffel Tower cake

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!

Purse topped cake

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!

Tiered Piano Cake

Have a great week, cake lovers!

Cakes for week of 4/14/14

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.

Farmhouse Cake

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.

Barbie Pink Sugared Cake

No week would be complete lately without a Frozen themed cake!  This party actually had Elsa come to the party!

Tiered Frozen Cake

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.

What’s a bachelorette party without cake?

Black Scroll 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!

Cakes For 3/17/14

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.

Hello Kitty Cake

Here is a smash cake and cupcakes for “Mommy’s little Monster”

Little Monster Cake

Here is a bridal shower cake for a couple’s shower.  This shade of blue is one of the wedding colors.

Cake with Pearls and Fondant border

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. :)

Boy Scout Cake

The den of boys that was “crossing over” from Webelos to Boy Scouts got special recognition.  Their den mascot is this bird.

Boy Scout Cake 2

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.
