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.
