Finally! My first wedding! As simple as this cake sounded-3 tiered, ivory cake with white flower's around each base-it was extremely time consuming. Yes, I sat a made each of those roses. Of course I left most of it until last night and then underestimated the amount of roses I needed and scrambled a few more minutes before the event. Thankfully I made it with time to spare. I hope it was what the bride was looking for. Thanks for trusting an amateur to make your cake! :)

Here it is with the candle, cute huh?
My baby sister turns 16 today-very hard to believe! She loves many things and one of those things happens to be cupcakes so how appropriate to do a giant cupcake for her birthday. It was also very convenient for me as this is a very simple cake and I have been making cakes up the wah-zoo this month. I was also able to use leftover material which made it even easier-yeah! We're going to put a giant birthday candle on top for when we sing to her tonight. I will post a picture of it later because it's pretty dang cool. I love you sis and congrats on the big one-six!

I have been looking forward to this cake for weeks! When I think I've learned a lot on one cake and don't think I could learn much more, I do. I think I discovered more ways to improve with this cake than any other I have done so far. This order was to include a two-tiered square cake with some of the same features as my last baby shower cake but using the colors lavender and plum and it needed to be more elegant than "cutesy." Definitely a different kind of cake than I'm used to. I had a blast and like I said, learned a ton. I really appreciate the practice. I still have a ways to go but I'm getting there. :)

So one might think this cake was for a child...it was actually for my mom. I didn't mean for it to turn out so childlike but she loves this color combo and loves stars. I have been wanting to use some of the bright green (it's me fave) for a while now. I wish I didn't have so many distractions during this cake so I could have done a little cleaner of a job but she still loved it. I love you so much mom and I hope you have a great birthday!

Yeah for the Cardinals! For this momentous occasion, I made some football cookies and a cake...
I have an order for a square cake this month and I haven't done one yet-I didn't even have square pans! I thought what a perfect opportunity to get some practice in. I've been told that square cakes are more difficult than circle and that theory proved true but I did okay for a first-timer. :) Go Cardinals!
