A cupcake wedding!

Have to move quickly; my family is waiting for me! This bride wanted mini cakes or cupcakes. When we figured everything out, she decided on jumbo cupcakes. I think they turned out pretty well. Each has a blue and silver shamrock on it. That took forever!! The whole family was working on those last night!! But they look very nice now. The lighting wasn't great, but I do think this looks fairly nice. The band around the topper and all the shamrocks are made of fondant. We had a lot of fun on this one. Bring the family together!

Don't try this at home, kids

I really liked this one. A sunflower in our garden is about to bloom, so I just had to make one for the residents' cake this month.

I was a little disappointed that I didn't want to wait for the Ambassador to call back with the names like I've been doing, but I needed to get it done and get back to this week's wedding cake project.

Michael took it to work, and then remembered it was still in the car around 7pm.

I think it looked a little better before!

I'm also just noticing that Michael cut down that sunflower in the garden. grrrr

Happy Birthday Morgan

The next generation:I got a new dream castle set from the bakery, although Morgan had other plans for his birthday cake. He quickly changed them. Unfortunately, everything he wanted included a lot of rolled fondant cut outs. I convinced him that m & m's would be enough! I learned a lot from this and am really glad I got a practice one! If I ever do this one again, there is a lot to do differently. The plus is that Morgan really wanted to do this himself, so he really felt like he did.

My bad...

My favorite "little" family ordered this one for a son-in-law. They order a lot of cakes!! Rachel said he likes fishing, so I know that game! I got this idea off of a taunting little shirt Michael's mom sent him. It just so happened that it was too small for him, so I got it and she sent him a bigger one!! Oh, the fun we have with those. So anyway, here's hoping Rachel and Josh have a sense of humor!!

Happy Trails

How do you say good bye to all your troubles? Just kidding, but they did almost order a black cake. The whole thing was pretty funny, but they had good cake!
