Auburn Birthday Girl!

A dear friend called to order a red velvet cake for her daughter.  When we discussed decor, she decided to wait until the college football championship game was over because Amanda is a great Auburn fan! When Auburn won, we decided to use those colors for her cake!  So Amanda ended up with an Auburn orange and blue decorated cake with a deep CRIMSON inside [Roll Tide!]  Take a look!

Topsy Turvy Winter.....AND Flamingos

I wanted to try to make a Topsy Turvy cake, and since Denise's birthday was nearing, I decided THIS would be the time to experiment!  Denise LOVES flamingos, but her birthday is mid-winter! So how do you combine the season with her love of flamingos on a Topsy Turvy cake?  Just look!

Snowmen in Alabama

For the first time in many, many years, snow fell on Christmas in Alabama.  It melted as fast as it fell at my house, but in many places snowball fights were in full swing and snowmen were built with relish.  So what happens when the normal Alabama winter sun comes out after the snow?
