A Pair of 50's!

One of my dearest friends and her husband are BOTH turning 50 this weekend! Jackie asked me long ago to do a cake for Keith, and I decided that my gift for Jackie's 50th would be a cake for her!

Keith travels worldwide with his job, so Jackie wanted a "Where's Waldo?" cake...And Jackie is a retired band director, so what better for her than a music themed cake!

If you knew these 2 and the struggles they have been through over the years, you would understand why this birthday milestone is so much more than that.  It is a celebration above all celebrations, and a blessing among so many blessings.

April's April Bride's Cake

April, a former student, honored me by asking me to create her bride's cake.  The bottom tier was a lush red velvet, while the second and top tiers were white velvet.  Wedding cakes me so nervous because I know how important they are to brides....and as a result, I forgot to take pictures of the cake prior to the event. So I am relying on photos from the bride! Thanks, April -- and my wish for you and Cody is a long life of happiness and contentment!

Happy Birthday, Dan....and War Eagle [?]

Ok....Dan's wife called me in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to ask for an Auburn cake.  Really?  Yes, really.  The "34" on the jersey represents Dan's age, as well as his favorite Auburn player's number - Bo Jackson!  His sweet twin daughters helped him celebrate! Just look!

Does life get much better than this?  Happy Birthday, Dan! 

A Wife's Gift to Hubby!
