Deer Park Tigers and Starlights

My husband is a football coach for the Deer Park Tigers in his spare time (it's a little league football team).  Last weekend was their first game and the drill team/cheerleaders, the Starlights, held a pep rally for the boys.  To thank the girls, the Tigers wanted to give them something special and sweet.  So I baked and decorated 74 big sugar cookies, they  measured 5 inches by 3 inches.

Then Saturday after the football game, Coach Jake gave his players and coaches these helmet sugar cookies customized with the boys' numbers (32 total).

Baby Shower Cake for Addison

We really live in a small world.  The girl who ordered this cake from me and I went to high school together and I graduated with her husband.  It was definitely a surprise when I showed up at their house for the delivery!

Anyway, she wanted the cake to match the baby's nursery bedding:

I did a double-layer, 10" classic white cake with buttercream and chocolate fondant on the sides. I'm really happy how this cake turned out and it is one of my favorite cakes I've done to date.  There were also 2 dozen chocolate cakeballs that I forgot to take a picture of.  They were dipped in chocolate with blue and green drizzles, to match the cake colors.

Carrie, thanks so much for ordering with me and it was great to catch up with you!!


Custom colored cake balls

These are chocolate and lemon cake balls dipped in custom colored vanilla.  The birthday girl's favorite color is purple and her sister wanted her cakeballs to match.

Thank you for your order Tiffany!
