Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My!

Hunter Scott is on his way, and we can't wait to meet him!  The theme for Eleanor's baby shower was a vintage circus, so I made a circus tent.  The base was double layer 8 inch round cakes, topped off by half of the wilton 3D ball.  I used icing to fill in the spaces and make a big top.  This one was really fun and unique!

Babies, Babies, Everywhere!

Congratulations, Chamblee's!  Little Beau is almost here, and we can't wait!  The shower was decorated in baby boy blue and overalls.  When I was told the theme, I knew exactly what I would make!

A Little Boy, and His Tractor...

The tractor is one of my favorite "character" cakes to make.  And we all know the best tractor there is comes in green and yellow.  Nothing Runs Like a Deere!  Happy Birthday, Aiden!

Sweet Caroline...

Yes, Caroline is another year older.  This year she celebrated with a butterfly cake. The butterfly sits on a 9 inch square that was turned to make a diamond.  Happy Birthday, Caroline!


We're glad you're here Baby Anders!  The dinosaur cake was a representation of the nursery decor that Summer designed for Anders.  Summer is so creative and the nursery is precious!  Congratulations, Millicans!

Eagle Scout!

Congratulations, Grant Tucker on becoming an Eagle Scout!  The cake was a full sheet cake (2 halfs put together) with the Eagle Scout metal iced on top.

A Little Girl's Fairy Tale

Hanna is in love with Tinker Bell and friends.  So, for her birthday I made her a "Fairy" cake.  The bottom was a 10 inch round and on top was another 10 inch round, but I cut out a pattern of a flower to give it the shape.  I'm not up to date with my fairies these days, but I do remember that they usually appear from flowers.  I put the fairies on a flower nail and iced a flower around them, then placed them on the cake.  Overall, my first fairy cake was a success!
