The Pretty Little Dress Form Cake

This was a birthday surprise for out super cute and lovely friend, Erin. She had no idea. She works in fashion and has awesome style...I always want to steal her shoes! This was a chance for me to play and be creatively free. I had fun playing with the draping and the ruffles. I put the dress form fondant on in pieces so it looked seemed up and down the body. The sweet little "E" plaque finished it off beautifully! She just loved the cake and it made me so happy to see her so happy!

The Graduation Cake

This was a pretty easy cake. And mostly because Kelsey took the reins on this one and we sat back and let her have the experience! She did a great job! It came out just great and was such a relaxing, fun cake to work on.

The Mustache Cake

I always say...the weirder the request, the better! So, when Paige, one of our very best customers, called in an order for a giant mustache cake...I became immediately giddy! It seemed so easy and it pretty much was. I love how the happy birthday came out! We got to deliver the cake and see the look on the birthday boy's face when we brought it out! It was beyond rewarding! I really really really loved doing this cake. It is a chance for us to be pop artists and go big!

The Cop Cake!

I was ridiculously excited to make this cake! The client, Sara's, boyfriend was graduating from the police academy and they wanted to do something really fun for his party. This was the first cake that we had our new assistant, Kelsey work on. She was a huuuuge help! And did a greeeaat job! We had a blast making the donuts! They look so real. Good enough to eat! Every detail from the newspaper board, to the coffee cup with his name on it and the little drops of coffee....turned out so cute! It has an overall cartoony feel and I like it!

Funny Necktie Cakes!!

I got a super nice email for a neat guy named Matt. He really likes ties. Like a lot.
His new blog did a post on awesome tie cakes in honor of Father's Day. You should definitely check it out. There are too many good ones, I seriously cannot pick my favorite! I do love the first one with the sleeve and cufflink. Darling! And I like the frosting sweater and tie cake. Funky! But they are all awesome. I sure wish I had a Father's Day cake order so I could do my own swanky version! But in the meantime enjoy Matt's site!
