What a huge fan of the Crimson Tide this boy will be, that is if he takes after his daddy. But for now, little monkeys decorate his room, which was the inspiration for this cake. This is a butter cake with buttercream icing and all the detail on top is made from our modeling chocolate. Hope you love it Kalah and Jonathan, congratulations. Thanks Sandy, we love you.

Kate Beth is Carly's 7 year old sister and our second granddaughter. She was urged by Carly to go to grandmas house to spend the night since Carly was having older girls at their house. So...off to grandmas. Katie Beth wanted to bake a cake and decorate it. She done an awesome job. Way to go Katie! I'm very proud of you!

My oldest granddaughter, Carly, is growing up so fast. But she is a typical girl. She changed her mind several times before deciding on this design. She wanted zebra print on bottom and pink on top with the peace symbol in black. Pink border on bottom and black border on top. The cake was vanilla cake with buttercream icing. Everything in black is made with modeling chocolate and the #10 is made of dyed white chocolate. Everyone had a great time, Can you imagine the noise level with several ten year old girls in the same room? Happy Birthday Carly! We love you! Good job Shawn and Misty. Serves 40 people. A word to the wise....chocolate will melt if the candles are placed to close it, as is evident in the lower picture .

This cake makes me want to take a trip to the beach. This intimate beach-themed wedding cake is vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream, and is two layers of cake in each tier. The seashells on the cake are handmade from our homemade modeling chocolate, and dusted with edible dusting powders, and the starfish on top represent the bride and groom. There's also some piping detail on the sides of the cake. This cake serves about 40 people. We spread brown sugar around the bottom of the cake, to resemble sand, and placed a few of the family's own collection of seashells in the sugar. We loved making this cake, and wish the happy couple a long and prosperous life together. Thanks to Beth, for allowing us to make this and the groom's cake for their special day.
Kinley's first birthday, wow it doesn't seem like it's been a year. Seems like it was just a few days ago when we did her baby shower cake. The "Hello Kitty" cake serves about 50 people and is vanilla with buttercream icing. Her "smash cake" is the same flavor and has the #1 that's made of white chocolate. Thanks Danielle and Colby, we appreciate you asking us to share this occassion with Kinley. Happy Birthday!
