Bug cake

My baby turned 2 yesterday. He is OBSESSED with bugs and spiders. He loves when there is a fly in the house because he will chase it and catch it! How many of us can catch a fly with our bare hands? I guess the real question is, how many of us would want to? I was going to do a giant spider on the top but we are moving this weekend and most of my pots and things are packed. Glad I managed to make a cake for my boy though. The kids loved picked off the bugs and eating them. Fun fun!

Ivory wedding with roses

Sheesh! I have got to stop forgetting to take pictures. I have an excuse for this one though. When I delivered the cake, the reception hall hadn't been decorated yet so they had to put it in the fridge. I should have just taken one before I left or while it was in the walk-in. Hopefully I will get a picture of this one because it was pretty.

Reptile Cake

Cute huh? I debated doing a more realistic reptile cake like with the dessert seen and more realistic looking snakes and lizards but it was for a 7 year old boy and colors are just way more fun. The green one on top is my favorite. I'm sure there's a lizard out there somewhere that looks like him. :)

3rd times a charm

Bad picture, I know. I wasn't even sure if I should post this cake since I've already got one identical to it. Sadly the decorating portion of this cake fell on an unexpectedly BUSY day for me so my creative juices were not working for me. I'm not sure how else to do this cake but if I get another order for one, I will for sure try to mix it up a bit. It's still a classic though.

Black, white and red wedding with XBox

Cakes with dark piping are so scary! There is no room for error unlike white piping because I can just wipe it off and start again. Thankfully I didn't run into any problems. This cake matched the decor so beautifully. This family did a great job hiding the "cultural hall" look. You honestly couldn't tell.
This was the grooms cake. I had never heard of such a thing but the bride surprised her die hard XBOX playing hubby with it. The guests coming to the reception just laughed. They knew it was a cake just for the groom. :) Wish I had thought of it for my husband. He is playing right now as I am posting this. Boys!

Laser Tag

This is another one I forgot to take a picture of. I am awaiting one but this was for a little boy who had his birthday at Laser Quest. It has been years since I've done laser tag and there were literally no good ideas to use as far as cakes go. So I thought of this one.

Present Wedding Cake

I don't have a picture for this one yet. I like to post my cakes in the order I made them (I'm just weird that way) so I thought I'd put at least this so I can add the picture later. Anyways, this is one I helped a fellow cake maker decorate last week. It was so fun and so easy to work with a friend on a cake. Wish I could do it more often.
