Double circus fun

My BFF in the whole world has these most adorable twin boys, Luke and Max. They turned one year old and what more fitting than an all-out, double-the-fun CIRCUS?!  She went all crazy on the vintage circus theme, and seriously... was A-DORABLE!!! She's the OG party planner in my book, so I expected nothing less.  I just did a few measly desserts.  And the details were ALL her- I take NO credit. Love those guys!!!

Monsters... nice ones, of course

Our little guy turned 6 last January, and yes- he's our little monster!! Actually, not really.. he's the most mellow kid I know, but wanted a monster birthday anyways.  So Mommy does monsters... NICE ones, as requested.

Happy Birthday sweet baby boy... we LOVE you!!

mermaid madness

My girl turned 11 last October, (cue in mad sobbing) and she's all about all things mermaid.  I have to say I LOVE this age... and not sarcastically!  She's such a good girl and we have so much fun.  She's basically my partner in crime for everything, and has mad big sister skills.  So on to her party...

We had SO much fun with this one- she's turning out to be one awesome party planner's apprentice ;)
Happy Birthday, our sweet Camryn!!

Jenny and Kris... and, I'm BACK!!

So I'm firing up my oven again... granted not on a FULL time basis, but the hubs and I have decided the extra moola would be nice.  I realized I haven't updated my blog in for.. EVER, so here goes.

My dear friend Jenny got married last October (told you, like forever ago) so, of course I was excited to create their dessert bar! I grew up with Jenny and her sibs, so we've known each other for a LONG time.  She's all about the glitz and glam, so I had a fun time with all things shiny...

Sadly, I took these pics before the wedding started and just after the ceremony I got called over by the wedding planner (a cake-maker's worst nightmare).  Turns out my beautiful chalkboard sign fell down and broke :( so the final result was minus the sign... A HUGE bummer, but in the end, all was well and no one got hurt. (No one could see the back of the cake.......)
Congrats Jenny and Kris!!!

Keepin' up...

I'm not really taking "orders" per se, but I do keep up my passion through friends and family! Here are just a few I've done recently...

Wedded Bliss

This summer I had the chance to finish up my baking year with some beautiful wedding cakes.  While it was a challenge while being pregnant (rolling out fondant just isn't the same with a belly in the way:), I really enjoyed the experiences and final results of both of them! 

The first was for one of my best and oldest friends' wedding.  Not only did Nicole ask me to make her cake, I had the pleasure of standing by her side IN the wedding as well (I was VERY organized with this one!).  It was my honor and pleasure to create this beautiful (and surprise!) cake for Nicole & Peter!

Congrats to one of my most special friends- love you Dude!! :)

The second wedding was for friends of my sister and brother-in-law's.  Carrie & Paul are one of the sweetest couples and I was super excited to create this classy and beautiful cake for them!!
I tried a few new techniques and was SO happy with the outcome- not to mention the largest cake I have done to date! 
 Here is a picture of the beautiful couple (and cake:) thanks to the wonderfully talented Felicia Perry...

 I truly did enjoy being a part of both these couples' special days and can't wait to be able to create more cakes for other couples... just next year!!

Congratulations and Best Wishes to
Nicole & Peter
Carrie & Paul!!!
