Bright, Whimsical Wedding Cake!

Kari was not the traditional bride with her cowboy boots under her wedding dress! So her cake was not going to be traditional either -- chocolate cake with bright swirls and flowers! Blessings on both of you for many years of happiness!

Pink, zebra, sparkles -- what else would you do for a Sweet 16 Birthday party! Happy Birthday, Rachel! I hope your party was a blast!

Happy Birthday, Rachel!

Circus Afro for Shelby!

Shelby is not wild about cake, but she IS wild about "afro circus, afro circus, polka dot, polka dot, afro circus"! So we gave her a cookie cake with her the polka dot zebra on it! Happy Birthday, Shelby!

A "Sweet as Candy" Party

Lainey and Aubrey celebrated their 3rd birthday with a "Sweet as Candy" birthday party.  Months before their birthday, their mom found the perfect cake for the celebration! She always challenges me with her cake ideas, but I think it was a success! The 2 tier base and the lid are all cake, and the bubblegum is real. How much fun is this!
