Happy Birthday Jared!

This is turning out to be a popular cake with the boys! Here's the sports cake again, double-layer, 10" square cake, half chocolate and half yellow with buttercream icing.

For those interested, I can do different sports balls on this cake, you're not confined to football, baseball and basketball.

Thanks for your order Stephanie. I hope Jared enjoyed his cake!

July 4th and Baking Contest!

I didn't have any cakes due the week of the 4th so I had some time to myself in the kitchen. Our neighborhood always has a big 4th of July party and a baking contest. Last year my cakeballs won so naturally I wanted to enter again!

Here's what I came up with and I won 1st prize!!

40th Anniversary Cake

My wonderful parents just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary last weekend and I wanted to give them a special little cake just for them. This was a 6-inch, double-layer, classic white cake with strawberry filling and buttercream icing. According to Google, the 40th anniversary is the ruby red anniversary so that explains the strawberry and red accents.

They never read this blog but I'll wish them a very happy anniversary anyway!

Baby Shower Cake

This is another invitation inspired baby shower cake. It was a classic white, double-layer, 8-inch square cake with buttercream icing (with the exception of the dark brown, which was chocolate icing).

Thanks for asking me to do this cake for you, Sarah! Love you!

Happy Birthday Tanner!

We had another sports party for a 10th birthday a few weekend ago. Tanner got this double-layer, quarter sheet cake half chocolate and half classic white with buttercream icing.

Thanks again D'Ann for keeping me busy!!

Happy 7th Birthday Tate!

Decorating this cake reminded me that I've been doing this for a year, time has flown by! A year ago I made my 2nd entry in this blog for my nephew, Tate's 6th birthday party. And here I am posting a picture of Tate's 7th birthday cake.

My sister-in-law made the cake, which was a chocolate chip cookie cake, and I decorated it how Tate wanted (his party was at a roller skating rink).
