The tractor cake was for cousin Eddie from his grandkids . The monitor cake was for the nurses at the NICU in Northport. Thanks for taking care of our grand-daughter Kendall. The turtle cake was for a little girl my daughter kept.
This "Dukes of Hazard" cake served 54 and as you can tell, Houston is a big fan of the General Lee.

Ah!We were so excited about doing this wedding cake. We love to do cakes, but there is something about a wedding cake. Maybe its the fact that we were asked to share in their special day. This cake was a three tier stacked vanilla cake with buttercream icing.The letter "B" and a single stargazer lily topped the cake with small carnations and stargazer buds cascading down the side with a shell border. It served 200 people. The thrill of seeing the finished product and the looks on the bride and grooms faces is so gratifying. Congratulations. Thanks to granddaddy for watching the grandkids.
This grooms cake was vanilla and buttercream icing, and the outline in fondant. It served 60-70 people. The groom is a big fan of Fox Racing and we were happy to accommodate him.

This karaoke machine cake was so much fun! It's a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and the microphone and control knobs were made of homemade fondant. This was made for a friends birthday who loves to karaoke. We were so excited to do this one. It served 54 people. Couldn't have done this without the help of dessert sister. Thanks.

This cake was made for a special little girl in the family. She turned 9 this year. She picked out the colors and wanted layers. Dessert Mom took that idea and ran with it with multi-colored layers, polka dots, and tie-dye fondant bow. It was vanilla cake and buttercream icing. It fed about 100-125 people. She loved it.

Happy Birthday, Brooke! Brooke is a big 6 year old this year. She wanted flowers, butterflies, and a rainbow. I wasn't sure how to incorporate all of these requests on such short notice, but it turned out pretty cute, I think. Brooke seemed to like it. The cake was your typical vanilla cake, and the icing, rainbow, clouds, and most flowers were vanilla buttercream. Homemade fondant was used on the butterflies and a few flowers. I couldn't have done this cake without my friend (you know who you are).
This cake was decorated for a young lady who was expecting her first baby. Welcome to the world, Kinley! The belly and boobies were also cake. They were placed on a large sheet cake. All the cake was vanilla with vanilla buttercream. This cake served about 70 people. Congratulations!

This was our first attempt on a topsy-turvy cake. The picture doesn't really show the shape well. It was a niece/granddaughter's birthday in April 2008. She loved it. We used vanilla cake, vanilla buttercream, and fondant. She picked the colors, of course, and did a great job. This served 70-80 people and has a two-colored fondant bow on top.
