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

Ruffled 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!

Pinwheel Birthday Cake

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

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 week of 5/19/14

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.

Lego Rolled Away fondant cake

These cupcakes were for a class party.  The lucky teacher gets the one with the gumpaste tag on it.

Sprinkled Cupcakes

These cupcakes were for a little sweetie that just loves pink!

Pretty in Pink Cupcakes

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!

Cakes for 5/5/14

Here’s what was cooking in my kitchen last week…

My weekly Frozen cake.  This one had a fun twist though!  I used pearled Sixlets to make it as girly as possible.  They also made the coordinating cupcakes extra pretty.   I left space on the top for the mom to add her Frozen topper she bought.

beaded Frozen cake

This one was more exciting inside than out.  It was chocolate chocolate chip cake, filled with chocolate buttercream and chocolate chips, iced in chocolate buttercream, and topped with more chocolate chips.  I advised the mom that it should only be eaten with a cup of coffee or a large glass of milk.

Chocolate chip cake

This one was to celebrate a first communion.  The recipient requested no pink.  I had so much fun making all the spring flowers.  I used what was actually growing in my yard for inspiration.

Cross with spring flowers

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…

Cakes for Week of 4/21/14

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.

Pink Chevron Smash Cake

And here’s the little sweetie enjoying it!

This was my favorite one last week.  Sliming it was just too much fun.

Scroll and Spring Flowers Sheet cake

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?

Ombre Ruffle and Snowflake Cake

This one was for the twin of the gal who got the Frozen cake.  What a couple of lucky kids, huh?

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.

Cakes for Week of 4/7/14

Hello and happy Monday!  Last week had lots of fun cakes.  Check out what was cooking in my kitchen…

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.
