Here are some cakes I've made since the last post. I seem to be a really slow blogger. Sorry :-( . Life is so fast paced and with a 5yr old and 2 teenagers my time on the family computer is very limited. lol.
A nurse graduation cake with 75 matching cake pops. This cake was so fun to make and the expression on the client was priceless. I love to see how people enjoy the look and taste of their cakes.
Here is a bowling cake for a 40th Bowling birthday celebration. The birthday boy's nicknamed is spider.
Here is a sports themed red/black/white cake for a fun 13th birthday celebration. This cake was special because the top layer is completely gluten free chocolate, the middle was chocolate with an oreo filling and the bottom was vanilla with chocolate chip filling. So much fun!This cake was may tiered entry into the San Tan Festival of Cakes. I did a beach theme complete with surf boards, Adirondack chair, shells, sand and surf. I used foam dummies as this cake was to be displayed in the mall for 4 days. The tiers were off set which gave me a little more room to make each beach scene.Here is the purse cake that I also entered in the San Tan Festival of Cakes contest. I entered it into the 3D category and won first place! Yeah, this was the first time I'd ever entered a cake contest. I learned a ton of dos and don'ts. There were also some reallt cool cake classes on everything from figures and flowers to cake pops and shoes. So much fun. I won 3rd place overall in the beginners category.

Newest Cakes.... It's been super busy around here with the kids all getting out of school and all. Also there is a sugar art show at our local mall and I have entered in 2 cake categories. I'm a little stressed as I'm trying to get those cakes done with all the kiddos home! Crazy days....

A tower of cake pops donated for a Breast Cancer 3 Day walk Fundraiser! There were 200+ cake pops on it and it looked amazing. Oh yeah, and tasted amazing too!! lol
Here is a close up of the pretty high heeled girlie shoe I made for the topper of my cake pop tower. It shimmered people and I has little silver bling on it. Super fun.
Another view of the beautiful breast cancer fundraising high heeled shoe!

A quick but still very beautiful red, black, and white cake for a special birthday girl. I had seen these really simple fabric like roses on another cake and thought I had to try and replicate them. I love how whimsical they look. Almost cartoon like.

Here is a very simple but classy first communion/confirmation cake.

A quick 40th wedding anniversary cake. Elegant and sophisticated!!

My most fun cake to date, a topsey turvey red, black and white Alice in Wonderland cake. The bottom tier was chocolate cake and the top tier was gluten free chocolate cake with a lactose free butter cream. I know right?? How can this be? well I baked the bottom and decorated it one day, then completely cleaned down the kitchen and all my decorating tools and then baked and decorated the gluten free tier. It was very time consuming but worth all the accolades from the family!! The birthday girl was the gluten/lactose free person and she was just so happy to be able to have a piece of her very own birthday cake with her friends. It was a pleasure really!

So there they are, just a few of the newest cakes from this weekend and the past month. It's been "a lot" crazy here so posting the pictures is all I have the time for today.

Neon Zebra! WOW!
Another busy weekend filled with fun and cakes. Here are my last two. I made a neon cake for a friend's daughter's 13th birthday. Inside this fun looking cake was a vanilla sponge that I colored all sorts of neon colors, so when they cut into it, it was neon inside too!!! Yummy!

Then I made a a beautifully simple white on white 40th wedding anniversary cake! Phew. More on the way. And fun too!!!

Cupcake Toppers!

Yum. I was asked by a friend if I would be interested in making some Anaheim Angel cupcake toppers for her son's birthday. I thought, now that could be a challenge, and promptly said "Sure". Argh, now what? Well thank goodness I had recently purchased a program called SCAL for my cutter so now I'm able to cut anything I can make into a computer SVG file. Yeah. So here are what the cupcake toppers ended up looking like. And yes I think they'll look great on top of a cupcake!
