Kim's Birthday Cake....a little late.

Yes, as her mom, I do know when Kim's birthday is.  AND, I do know that it is the same date each year.  Still, the cake baking and decorating kept getting put on the back burner.  So AFTER we had her birthday dinner [on the day AFTER her birthday], I finally finished decorating it and delivered it first thing this morning to the school at which she works.  Happy Birthday, Kim.  Mom loves you.

The Salon Celebrates Adrienne!

Adrienne's birthday was coming up, and the young ladies she works with as well as some of her clients decided that THIS birthday was a special one, indeed. Just take a look!

Best Wishes, Adrienne! From Tiffany, Summer, Amy, Cathy, Bette, and me!!!

Strawberry Shortcake for Kayla

Kayla's mom called to order Kayla's birthday cake...the theme? Well, Kayla likes Lightning McQueen, Dora, and princesses. Hmmm....So Mom and I decided on a Princess Dora.  Then about a week before the event, Kayla changed her mind -- Strawberry Shortcake and the decision was made.

This is a delicious strawberry cake with Strawberry Shortcake decor.

Celebration of a Magnificent Kind!

I taught many young adults throughout my career.  Naturally, some stand out in my memory more than others.  One of those is Jonathan Michaels, aka "Kirby".  Kirby attended most all school events, was a very good student, was a very polite young man, and was a good friend of my son.

As was usual with most students, Kirby went his way after graduation and we lost touch.  Through various people, I heard of his marriage and his children....and then devastatingly of his wife's cancer.   This was several years ago.

A few weeks ago, Kirby contacted me and wanted a cake to celebrate his wife's 5th year anniversary of being cancer-free!  How honored I was that he should ask me to be a part of this celebration.

Happy Special Anniversary to you, Shelley.  May you have many years of good health and much happiness.
