Jacob's Toy Story Birthday!

Jacob decided to have a Toy Story birthday this year. I had my brother in law make the bed frame for me. This was one of the easiest cakes I made, but I think one of the cutest. The cake was vanilla pound cake with yellow buttercream frosting for filling.

Mikey's Hump Day Cake!

My brother Mikey is on a full time mission for the LDS church. He has been out for a year. So for the 1 year mark or "hump day" I made him a missionary shirt. The badge is a picture of his actual badge printed on edible paper. He plans on playing football at Brigham Young University when he gets back, so that is why the tie is a BYU tie. We froze the cake and packaged it up to be sent overnight to Arizona. We are crossing our fingers it gets there in one piece. We also sent a picture of it just in case it doesn't make it. He left before I really got into making cakes so I am so excited for him to see it.

Sweet 16 cake for my cousins!

I had 3 cousins turn 16 in a two week span. So we had a big combined party for them. I used my Cricut Cake for all the decorations for this cake. I really loved how it turned out. All the teens were pleased with it as well:)

Cameron's 2nd Birthday and 4th of July Party!

This year for Cam's birthday we had a combined 4th of July party too. It was a lot of fun. I figured that this will be the last year he doesn't have a preference on his theme, and I wanted to do a 4th of July cake. He loved the cupcakes. I used food coloring on all the cupcakes and to make my stripes in the big cake. This cake was a lot of fun for everyone to eat.

Cakes for Provo Craft!

This summer Provo Craft approached me about doing some cakes for them to demo their new Cricut Cake machine. This was a fun project for me. I did 5 cakes for them. They wanted a girl cake, a boy cake, a cake with flowers, a holiday cake and a wedding cake. I was able to use my imagination on the design. I really enjoyed figuring the machine out and it has been very useful in my cake decorating.

Jazz Basketball

This cake is for my nephew Chase. When I took his mom's cake to her (Chanel Handbag) I asked him what he was going to do for his birthday. He responded, "umm, I want a basketball cake." So how could I not deliver:) He is turning 4 and he and his Dad are huge Jazz fans. I made this cake with 2 9" round cakes carved to allow the ball to sit inside. I used a ball cake pan for the basketball. The backboard was made from 1/4" plywood. I covered it in fondant. I used my Cricut Cake machine to cut out the Jazz logo. This cake was surprisingly easy and so fun to make. I can't wait for the little guy to see it!

Coach handbag and People Magazine!

I made this cake for my aunt Kathy's birthday. She always has a black coach handbag and her People magazine with her. I used my new cricut cake to cut out the C's, the flowers, and the word People. I love it. The cake is vanilla pound cake with butter cream filling. I used Marshmallow Fondant to cover it. The details are gum paste.

My Aunt Laurie lives for Diet Coke. Truth be told all the ladies in my family live for Diet Coke. So for Laurie's birthday I decided to surprise her with a cake. It was so fun to make!
