Okay, you should have seen the party that this cake was for... The decorations were RIDICULOUS! In a good way. Lettie way outdid herself for her sister's birthday and this was the cake for it. I think this is very close to the top of my favorite cakes list. It was for adults only so that's why I put the non-edible "bling" on it. We can't have any kids ingesting plastic rhinestones.

Sven & Christine tie the knot... 450 miles away! This was an adventure for sure. I had to bake the cakes here, pack them back up in their pans and take them to Colorado. Then I had to make all the flowers (with the help of my sister, mom, & darling neices) up there, prep & cover the cakes in the Senior Center kitchen, then transport the parts to the events center and put it all together there... all while trying to coordinate the catering too. Crazy! But the wedding turned out amazing and I was just glad I could be such a big part of it. Love you Sven!

Happy Birthday to you firefighter! This was one of the most fun cakes to make too. I thought it really looked like a fire hat. The medal was made out of gum paste and made to look metalic gold. Oh, it was chococolate cake with strawberry cream cheese filling. YUM!

Okay, they told me not to do a dark color for the flowers but I couldn't help myself. I saw this design online and I couldn't not do it. It was too perfect for such an occasion. I thought it turned out awesome. I wish we had a 360 of this cake. Oh... all those designs were hand cut with a knife! Crazy!

This was a baby shower cakes for two girls having two baby boys around the same time. The bottom was four layers of chocolate cake with cream cheese buttercream filling and the top was vanilla cake with strawberry cream cheese buttercream filling. GOOD! And I loved the argyle. I thought it was very sophistocated...
