Summer Days Driftin' Away...

Hello to all my friends out there!!! I love summer! Family get togethers at the river, back yard barbeques & swimming in the pool :) Doesn't get much better than that...unless you add a cake to the party - lol! Here are a few...

Barbie Cake with Gifts
Barbie sits atop a butter cream sheet cake with four gifts around her in honor of the birthday girls 4th birthday

Lady Bug on a Leaf Birthday Cake
This little Lady Bug sits on a leaf that was carved out of a chocolate sheet cake. The Lady Bug was removed to be enjoyed as an individual cake by the birthday girl :)

My Little Pony Birthday
Does this not make the cartoons theme song run through your head? :) Ahh, the memories!
My Little Pony, My Little Pony
Isn't the world a lovely place...
 This was made to match the napkins for the party. The pony on top is made out of sugar paste & has a #3 on the hip.

Birthday Gift - need I say more?

Nintendo & Nintendo 64 game systems, hand carved & covered in fondant that was air brushed to be the appropriate colors. Controllers & cords are sugar paste & fondant & the spilled Mtn. Dew is totally fake - made from clear, non-toxic glue & food coloring :)

Lady Bug Baby Shower
Gum paste lady bugs crawl up a fondant branch & on fondant grass blades. The rest of the cake was airbrushed a soft pink

Baby Shower Cupcakes w/ cupcake wrappers made from scrapbook paper that coordinated w/ the other party decorations

Polka Dot Baby Shower
Exactly what the mommy-to-be wanted! Polka dots are classic & never get old...perfect to celebrate a brand new bundle of joy

Wedding Cake with Flower Petal Design
BEAUTIFUL!!!! Live flowers & real petals make this wedding cake look timeless

Poker Table Grooms Cake
Poker chips & cards are made from Sugar Paste & are hand painted. The poker table was covered in fondant & airbrushed to perfection!

Enjoy the rest of your summer & I'll write more soon!!!
