Another cars cake....

Valentine's Day cake for a co-worker...as you can tell I had fun making the hearts. It was for two boys and I promised it wouldn't have too many hearts or be too "girly"....oops!

Olivia's Princess practice cake

Olivia is having a princess party for her fourth birthday in two weeks and has requested a castle cake with princesses on it. I've never "built" anything, so I was unsure how to go about making a square castle on top of a round cake with correct deminsions, proportions, and support. I made a practice cake this weekend to make sure I was prepared and had an action plan for the big day. Here are few step-by-step pictures...let me know what you think! P.S. I didn't really decorate it but trying to make sure it was stable and proportionate.

More cakes...

This was for my boss' son who wanted his fourth birthday party theme to be his daddy's new boat...I found out about the cake on Friday for a Saturday party that started at 11:00! No time to plan or make a mistake, so I played it safe and kept it simple.

Our family tradition is to go to my grandparent's house (on my dad's side) for Christmas Eve. My grandmother sings Happy Birthday to Jesus every year, so I decided to make a cake for her/Jesus. As usual, my writing is off-centered!

This cake was for one of my co-worker's son who plays city league football and is on the Redskins team. I was asked to make a birthday cake with the football theme for a 13-year-old boy and not make it look too birthday like...you know he has to be cool in front of his friends! He really liked it!!!! Please note that although my writing is not perfectly centered, the font is very boy-friendly and almost the same size!
