I do announcements as well. I'll try to find a few and post them. In the first post I did on this blog there is a front of an announcement that I did. (I didn't post the back for privacy of the person that I did it for) BUT...we matched the cake and cupcakes with the invitation. Kinda fun! I'll post prices on here soon of cakes, invites and announcements.

Congrats to Josiah who just graduated from the fire department!
This was my first 3-D cake. No I'm not Ace of Cakes. Not even close. I'm not great at 3D, but it was kinda fun. This cake is chocolate with chocolate hazelnut filling. Cupcakes are banana, with banana mousse filling and cream cheese frosting. Pretty darn good, I must admit.
Thanks Jessie for letting me do this for you! It was great practice. I hope you liked it!

So many nicknames....public blog....so my little boy calls the bride La La. Here's La La's cake that was my first wedding cake. It was very scary to have the pressure of a wedding, but GREAT to do. The colors were shades of pink and Navy blue. (Her hubby is in the marines I believe, so it was fun to add the blue) Several eggs, powdered sugar, and hours later this is what I came up with.....
Fondant with gumpaste roses and leaves. Carrot cake and lemon cake tiers with cream cheese frosting.

I won't use names on this blog, but my sweet little niece had a birthday. Long story short she really wanted me to do a cake. I ran out of time and her Mom told her I couldn't do it. One look at her face and went home and started this cake at 10 p.m. and finished at 1 a.m.
The look on her face when I gave it to her made it well worth it.
Happy Birthday Ya Ya. (her nickname)

So I'm still in the practice mode and think it's great to have an excuse to make a cake. My latest excuse was for my sis-in-laws baby shower. She's a wonderful Mom of 6 with her 7th on the way! So we thought it would be fun to surprise her with a party. Cake topper is banana flavored with raspberry filling and butter cream icing. (of course covered in fondant) Cupcakes are banana flavored with cream cheese frosting.

I've decided to start a blog of my cakes in hopes that sometime when I get a little better at them people will want to hire me and have me make them cakes. Here are a few fun and not so great first time cakes. I'm not the most talented, but I love to make them, and seeing people's faces when they see their cakes.
