1st Friend Sleepover

When you become a parent you tend to look forward to your child growing up and them being able to have their friends over. This was Callie's first friend sleep over. She's done overnighters with family but this would be her first experience having one of her friends over. She still talks about it to this day, who knew a 4 year old could absorb so much and have this amazing memory, way better than my own memory. So Callie had her friend Brielle sleep over and of course what did the girls want to do, bake a cake! Not just a boring kind of cake a princess cake and of course she had to be pink! So that is exactly what we did, we made a princess cake and of course we made chocolate and vanilla cake and i tinted the vanilla cake to be pink!

Ta Da! All ready! Of course we had to add a bit of glitter to the dress so i used the glitter Dusting Powder that i bought at Icing Inspirations.

Brown & Teal, such a lovely Combination!

Brown and Teal are such great color combinations together. The Bride and Groom requested Cupcakes rather than a Standard cake. I also made then a cake for them with a Bride and Groom figurines as toppers.

The cupcakes were chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with Vanilla and Chocolate Buttercream. The cupcake toppers were cut using a round cutter, then i hand embossed their initials and spray painted it with Edible paint to match their Teal colors.

The cake was chocolate with vanilla buttercream, covered in White Fondant, Quilting pattern, Silver Dragees and a Brown Accent around the Edge. The Bride and Groom were made out of Gumpaste.

Happy Anniversary Chris & Jess

A couple of weeks back really good friends of ours celebrated their 12th Anniversary. I decided to surprise them with a cake since to be honest who doesn't love cake or dessert for that matter!

The cake was chocolate cake, filled with vanilla buttercream and fresh strawberries. Then Ivory fondant with buttercream writing. My husband made the daisy with red Disco Dust!
