Pretty in Purple

Carly, my granddaughter, is 11 and she always has a definite design in mind when it comes to her birthday cake. She called and said, "Grandma, you got a pencil and piece of paper? I'm gonna tell you how I want my cake to look."I got a pencil and paper, this is how it went down. For the bottom layer I want light purple icing with zebra stripes. For the second layer I want white icing with light and dark purple dots. For the top layer I want dark purple icing with white stripes and the #11 on top made of modeling chocolate. This cake is vanilla with buttercream icing and the zebra stripes and the #11 are model chocolate and serves about 25 to 30. For each girl that was at her spend the night party, she wanted the initial of their first name made from krispy treats drizzled with chocolate and the back side covered with purple modeling chocolate. Happy Birthday Carly, we love you bunches!

Woody Rides Again!

Hunter loves Toy Story and his favorite character is Woody. So, to celebrate his 5th birthday, his mom Sara,  wanted a unique cake that would showcase Woody's character. This is what we came up with; a two-tiered vanilla and chocolate cake with buttercream icing. The boots are rice krispies covered in modeling chocolate, the rope, sheriff's star, #5, cow print vest, buttons and rope border are all made from our modeling chocolate. (serves about 40) It turned out so cute! Thanks Sara  and Happy Birthday Hunter!

50th Wedding Anniversary

Fifty years and counting, wow! I think it's awesome to have a marriage last this long. This means together they've overcome about anything a couple can be put through. And what's left after fifty years of marriage...a bond like no other. Knowing that through thick and thin, your spouse is your best friend and your cushion should life knock you down. This is especially close to my heart because this happens to be my sister and brother-in-law, Anna and Charles Studdard. I love you guys!
This cake is a three-tiered vanilla cake with buttercream icing and the calla lilies are made from our modeling chocolate. We used gold ribbon around the tops and bottoms of each tier. This cake serves about 82 people. Donna, Chrissy, and Tasha, you did a great job!

Connor's YO GABBA GABBA! Cake

I'll have to admit, my two boys haven't went through the YO GABBA GABBA! phase, so this show and all it's characters were totally new to me. I still haven't learned all their names, but I do know that Connor likes them and wants to celebrate his special day with them! This cake is vanilla with vanilla buttercream, and serves 25 people. I sure hope you like it, Connor, and a special thanks to Mrs. Wanda and Tasha. Happy birthday, Connor!

I think Maggie's favorite color is purple. Last year's cake was a purple Hanna Montana and this year a purple Wizard's of Waverly Place. This cake is two layers  (one vanilla and one chocolate) topped with buttercream icing.  One dozen vanilla cupcakes and one dozen chocolate cupcakes iced with buttercream and the stars, wands and the #7 are made from modeling chocolate. Happy 7th Bithday Maggie and thanks Tasha!

Dixie's Multicolor Peace Sign Cake

This is a picture that Charity drew for us to go by
and Dixie wanted a multicolor retro look topped off with a multicolor peace sign. This cake is a two-layer vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, including decorations on the cake, and serves 25-30. The stars and name are made with royal icing (a new way to do these for us). We actually angled the top layer to have the topsy-turvy look. Happy birthday, Dixie, and thanks Charity.

Sparkling Princess Cookies

Princess Isabelle wanted to celebrate her birthday with her friends by sharing 3 dozen sparkling princess tiaras/crowns. These are our buttery sugar cookies iced in white, rose, and lilac, and decorated with alternating colors. The picture doesn't do justice to the pearl dusting powder on each cookie, just to make them shimmer for the adorable little princesses that would soon devour them! Happy birthday, Princess Isabelle, and thanks, Raegan!
