November cakes...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!! Hope everyone had an amazing time w/ friends & family & took a moment to give thanks for our freedom! Here's what I've been up to in the cake world this month, not as crazy as October was but still super fun! Enjoy...

No, this isn't a plate of waffles...this is actually cake with fondant butter & a glaze made to look like syrup but taste like icing. Yum!!!

VW Bug cake made to look like the actual vintage bug the birthday boy drives.

Thomas the Tank Engine cookies & cake...all aboard!!!

What is more girlie than pink & black? Add some hot pink Gerber Daisies & a little zebra print & you're set :)

I made this cake for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary. We had so much fun celebrating w/ friends & family

Cowboy hat cake + two sheet cakes for an anniversary party.

Cupcakes are so much fun for birthdays!!! The theme for this one was bright, brighter & brightest w/ a touch of flowers & sparkle :) Fun stuff!

Camo cake w/ baby booties was a cute idea for a baby boy shower!

I made this cake for our churches Thanksgiving dinner. No one believed it was cake :)

Write more in December!!!

October Cakes...

Whew! October was an awesome month for me! My cousin got married October 3rd & I was a brides maid.

My friend Kim (left) & me (right) in our dresses waiting for the wedding to start.

My hubby & I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on October 11th with a trip to Washington was AWESOME!!!

David & I fixing to go on our Capitol tour...

In the cake world I've noticed that as the Holiday Season draws closer I am getting busier & busier. I'm up so late tonight because I'm waiting to take cake out of the oven - as soon as this one's out I'm going to bed :)

It's taken me a while to post these...I hope you like them.

Volley Ball cake for the Green Forest Tiger Senior Night

I LOVE this one! I had never seen one like this until I got the order for it. I thought it was such a great idea! Perfect for a Bridal Shower.

My Father-In-Law has a unique method for hunting. He will go out in the woods, fall asleep under a tree & wake up to find a deer standing in front of him & shoot it. It's awesome! He ALWAYS gets a deer...the other guys aren't always so lucky :) This cake was a fun way to capture him in his glory.

I LOVE brides who order a special cake for their groom!!! The wedding cake turned out simple & elegant & he was so excited about his cake. I love happy customers :)

Retirement is such a happy occasion! Why not celebrate w/ cake?

The bank I worked for for 8 years celebrated their 12th birthday. This year they wanted a fall themed cake...I had so much fun making leaves & pumpkins!

What delicious colors! Chocolate brown, turquoise & and a super pale olive green...divine! Sure hope it doesn't fall completely off :)

Corset cookies & petite fours are an elegant touch for any lingerie shower.

My second recliner was a little easier than my first one but still extremely difficult. I think it turned out super cute! It's such a fun way to celebrate someone you love!

I've got some good ones lined up for November...not to mention THANKSGIVING!!!!!!! Until next time.....
