1st birthday beach cake, beach wedding cake, cowboy baby shower, strawberry birthday cakes

We had a super busy week!

These were made for a little girl turning 2! She wanted strawberry shortcake themed desserts and these are what we came up with!

Cowboy Themed Baby shower cake/cupcake

This was made for a baby shower! I am pretty happy with the results. I hand painted the handkerchief design and Rodney made the baby, it's so cute! The cupcake was made for the big sister!

Beach Wedding cake

This was made for a reception after a destination wedding. The entire cake is vanilla with vanilla buttercream, crushed wafers and chocolate shells.

Ian's first birthday!

Our friends Amy and Garren were celebrating their baby's 1st birthday party and went with a beach theme! Because Ian has so many people that love him, they had to have TWO PARTIES! These were all made for both parties - I also made cookie favors but forgot to take a picture!!

(throwing in an extra picture of the main cake in a different light because I love how it turned out!)

Busy week but everything seemed to turn out pretty good!

200th post! 1st birthday, Weekend wedding cake, bulldog cake

I can't believe this is my 200th post!

Here are a few cakes we did over the weekend, plus one we completed tonight.

1st birthday cake:

(strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream and fondant accents)

Two tiered wedding cake (this cake went to a reception that was at the Ballpark in Arlington, pretty cool!)

The bottom tier is vanilla chocolate chip and the top tier is strawberry.

This bulldog cake was made for a young boy's birthday! This was a special cake in that the customer has purchased expensive cakes in the past and been disappointed. We're hoping we can be the ones to make them happy! This cake is supposed to resemble one of the family's bulldogs, hopefully we did the dog justice!

This entire cake is real - the head is made from Rice Krispy Treats and the iPhone is fondant! We had a good time with this cake!
