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.

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.
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.
