To Infinity & Beyond!
This past weekend, a very special celebration took place.
E wanted a cake for her husband to commemorate his graduation from nursing school.
And from rescue diving for the Navy.
Together, we designed an adorable cake, celebrating the best of both worlds.
Bandaids and scrubs and a syringe…
Diver’s fins and an anchor…
And of course, a graduation cap on top.
Congratulations! Wishing you the best in your future career!
I love birthdays.
Especially when they bring beautiful cakes.
The birthday gal loves gardening, especially pink and purple flowers, and so I put together this delicious floral delight.
Fondant details include seed packets, terra cotta flower pots full of pink and purple blooms, and gardening gloves. There was even a little birdhouse. All was accented with buttercream grass and flowers.
Hope it was a wonderful birthday!
This birthday cake was probably one of my favorites to make – it was for a very special little girl.
Two layers (vanilla and chocolate), covered in buttercream and a full size Olivia cut from fondant, all ready for the party.
She is surrounded by polka dots, stripes and she even has the sweetest fondant bows on her ears.
And of course, the first birthday smash cake, in matching colors and accents.
Van’s first birthday fell on a momentous weekend: the Daytona 500.
Not only is that one of the premier Nascar races, but Van was born exactly 8 years after his parents met at that very race.
It’s not surprising that his first birthday theme was the checkered flag.
Of course, the vanilla smash cake matched…
And there were some cupcakes with red papers and black fondant stars atop swirls of buttercream.
We hope this first birthday party was special for Van and his family!
This weekend, my son’s little friend H celebrated her 3rd birthday.
The theme of the party? Toy Story. Who doesn’t love Toy Story?
Yeah, I don’t know either.
H’s mom wanted little alien cupcakes to tie in with the theme.
I’d be lying if I said these weren’t a blast and a half to make.
Don’t you just want to adopt them? Or eat them?
And seriously, ya’ll? How cute is this Sit-n-Spin for a display stand?
It was the hostess’ idea. It could not have been more perfect.
By the way? These little beauties are chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and fondant and M&M accents.
Claw not included.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
I really wanted to make a super cool, fun cake this year. I decided on vanilla cake with mint and dark chips to lend a peppermint taste, and then settled on a Night Before Christmas theme.
Stockings hung by the chimney with care and all that.
A tall tree is trimmed and standing on a striped skirt on a hardwood floor.
A fondant fire roars in the garland-trimmed fireplace. Cozy.
Delicious! And adorable!
Enjoy the rest of the holiday season!
