Pink and black, Perennial Barbie, My Little Pony, Brush Embroidery, Woody and Dino Cakes

Turned 30 yesterday (the 11th).


While I sulk about about my youth passed, here's a look at what we've been up to...

Pink and black cake:

Made this for a girly girl, love how simple and elegant it turned out!

Adrianna's perennial Barbie cake:

This was made for one of Rylee's close friends, Adrianna. We LOVED making this cake! We hardly ever do cakes like these and it was a ton of fun. We used the airbrush and I made buttercream roses! Not a lot of people asking for buttercream roses these days so we enjoyed it :)

My Little Pony:

Rodney totally rocked the pony on this cake! Love the colors and how bright they turned out!

Brush Embroidery Cake:

This cake had me a little nervous! I hadn't piped like this or done brush embroidery in a VERY LONG TIME. I sat down and decided to just start and see where it led me...I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite cakes that we've done this year so far. It's a lot different than most cakes we do, pretty traditional (again with the buttercream roses) but I absolutely love it. I went back over the piping with white disco glitter to make it stand out. Yay!

Woody Cake:

Okay so my super sweet friend Cristina had this vision for her son's 3rd birthday cake. She wanted the cake to look like Woody. Her thought was that she'd have her son peek his head above the top tier (all decked out in his cowboy hat) and she'd snap a super cute photo (can't wait to see this picture!). After lots of discussion and deliberation, we came up with this design. I could not be happier with it. Rodney and I both worked on this cake together (at the same time - typically we work in stages at different times) and I'm just so proud of how well we work together. We've become a well oiled machine!

Dino Cake:

Love this cake design! We love making cakes for kids so much! This was another that we hadn't done before and I'm so happy with how it turned out. I snapped this photo before I cleaned up the powdered sugar (ignore that please).

Did I mention I turned 30 this week? I think I'm already experiencing some memory loss.
