Happy 60th Aunt Carol!

Cow print purse cake with a cow bell ringing
"Happy 60th!"
Such a fashionable farm girl!
The purse sat on top of one of her favorite books,
Jane Eyre, guess I need to read it and see why this is so.
Nah-better to eat than read. Lol.... Sorry Carol.

Kiressa loves cupcakes, so cupcakes it was!
She gave me a 3 month advance notice, and detailed instructions of what she wanted.

You're such a crack up!!  Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Princess Avree!

Happy "ANA-versary"

It's not often I give the story behind a cake, but I HAVE to on this one.

This cake was a version of a cake done on the TV show "Cake Boss." (-of which I am an avid fan.)

Ana happened to see the episode where Buddy and his team created a "Chocolate Lovers Dream Cake"....for once the tv had her full attention. It was reported that it was all she could think & dream about for days. So much so that her sweet husband figured that this would be the perfect gift for their 17th anniversary. I must agree!! I could hardly wait for delivery day. What was she going to think? Was it everything she dreamed of? Well, mission accomplished. She was giddy, she savoured it for days.....and it will be a sweet memory to last forever!

An A+ for Ken and his attentiveness! Sweet dreams & a Happy ANA-versary for sure!

Top tier: Chocolate cake w/ mini M & M's with a Hershey fudge filling.

2nd tier: Chocolate cake w/ Reeses Peanut Buttercup filling.

Bottom tier: Chocolate cake w/ caramel & Skor bar filling.

The river of chocolate was adorned w/ every chocolate bar imaginable.

Not to mention the chocolate fondant and layer of ganache that coated this tower of chocolaty goodness.

Happy 1st Birthday Rhetterbug!!

This cake I did for my cute little nephew who lives in Wisconsin.

My mom was going for a visit, it's his birthday,
so I thought let's try out "Cake on a Plane!"

Good intentions right? But I had trouble from the start. Not a good sign. I learned I need to really think things through a little better.

First, I started sculpting a cute giraffe for the top of the cake when I realized that the dome probably wouldn't fit. So revisions were made. Second, (even after all my prep) I did a double check close to completion & that darn giraffe was still too tall even thought he was standing at the side now. So peel off; cut down. Third, I realized the monkey would be to tall with his party hat on...poor little monkey didn't get to wear his hat. Finally everything seemed to fit. Then fourth, I freaked about the wire & toothpick support I had in the monkey causing problems through security. So I quickly disassembled him and glued him back together with chocolate. Took my picks; popped the lid securely on; and, FIFTH, off popped one of the monkeys ears. It's too snug. R-U-kidding me?@*&!###@ Oh-well, I'm sure there will be travel we'll let her do all the repairs once it's there. Sorry about the novel, here's the rest of the pics.

Hopefully there isn't a sixth....I'll have to wait and see.
Hope you liked the cake Breyn!

Happy Birthday Ethan!

Ethan turned 4,
and he's a Lego man that's for sure!
Lego Batman & Star Wars that is.

His mom had Lego characters (some of his presents)
to be placed on the cake.
I'm not sure which he ended up liking more...
the Lego characters he got,
or the cake?
I know, it's always the toys!

Ethan had a few parties lined up, so she also ordered some cupcake toppers
for the cupcakes she made to get her through all the events.
Thanks Nat, I loved seeing you after all these years
-you're my kind of mom!!
