All Things BYU Cake

I LOVED making this cake for my nephew.  BYU has such a special place in my heart.  I had some of the best times of my life at that school and love that I am a Brigham Young University Alumnist.  All the figurines and details were hand-sculpted, painted and shaped out of rice krispies and fondant. The cake was a blue and white swirl cake with a vanilla buttercream frosting.  GO COUGARS!

Mini Cakes

A friend of mine wanted little individual cakes to give her daughter and her husband during a combined party she was doing for them.  Her husband is a big 49er's fan so his cake was a 49er's cake with a fun surprise center (blue cake with orange frosting (Bronco's colors)-she is taking him to the 49ers/Bronco's game). Her daughter got a Frozen Princess cake. It was a sprinkle vanilla cake with colorful M&M center.

1st Day of School

On Friday Fischer started his second year of Preschool (or Pre-K if we're getting technical). Can't believe how big this guy is getting.  He started at a new place and seems to love it.  He can't wait to go again on Monday.

My First Wedding Cake

Anyone who knows me knows I have this crazy obsession with making cakes.  So when my friend asked if I would be available to make a wedding cake for her sister I was all sorts of excited.  As much fun as it was to do something new I have to admit that once the realization of what I was really about to do hit, it had me panicking.  The pressure and expectation of a wedding cake far exceeds any expectations of a birthday cake.  I stressed for days wanting this particular cake to be perfect.  When all was said and done I loved how the cake turned out.  All the flowers were hand-made, and each of the pearls were placed one by one. Top tier was chocolate cake with a chocolate pecan filling.  Bottom tier was vanilla cake with snickers filling.

Cute as a Button Cupcakes

Baby Showers are always a fun event. I love seeing all the cute baby stuff people get but this shower was particularly fun since it was for my sister-in-law Kaylee.  As part of her shower I got to make these fun "Cute as a button" cupcakes.  The cupcakes were a strawberry Lemonade cake with Lemon Cream Cheese frosting.  I loved how they turned out and I thought they were quite tasty too.
