If you celebrate lifes events you will have a life worth celebrating!

That is my motto! It's on my business cards & is a rule I try to live by...

This week is a cake free week for me because I am throwing a baby shower for a very dear friend of mine & it's going to be at my house so...instead of working on cakes I'm going to be working on getting my house set up to hold up to 15 people (it's a small house, this could be interesting to see). I'll also be gathering things up to decorate with - it's going to be fairly simple decorations, I'm getting flowers from the local flower shop, I've ordered green Hydrangeas & pink Lillies & I'll put them in clear glass vases with brown bows. Other than that I really am only using different cake plates & tiered cake stands with the cupcakes as decoration. I was sitting with my cup of coffee thinking about all of this & realized I have a few weeks worth of pictures I haven't posted yet...don't ask my how my thought process went from flowers & baby shower cupcakes to my pictures waiting to be uploaded from the camera, that's just me :)

These first two are from Easter weekend...I have another one from that weekend but I forgot my camera. That photo is on my mom's camera so as soon as I get that from her it'll be on here :)

 A bass fish cake & an old fashioned fishing creele ordered for a son who loves to fish.
The board is decorated w/ strips of fondant & air brushed then smudged to look like an old wooden pier. The fish was hand carved from chocolate cake & air brushed to give it that "just pulled from the water" look. Fish fins are made of gumpaste & air brushed as well. The fishing creele is hand carved from vanilla cake with dark chocolate fondant straps & detail. This one was almost a little gross because I kept expecting it to smell like the lake... :)

A 40th anniversary party on Easter Sunday. This cake is beautifully simple & elegant. All white butter cream with red hand made flowers & topper to match gives it just the right amount of color. The simple design & monogram in the middle finish it off perfectly. Congratulations on 40 years together!!!

Happy Birthday!!!
There's a new Sheriff in town so you all better look out :) LOL!!! A hand sculpted gumpaste cowboy hat & sheriff badge top a chocoalte buttercream & crushed oreo covered chocolate cake that sits on a buttercream bandana covered vanilla cake. The birthday boy got a chocolate badge covered in yellow buttercream to demolish on his big day :)

More to come later...I'll get the pics from my moms camera & will post pics of the baby shower too :)

Until then...take a moment to celebrate your life!!!!
