A Bama-"Kuntry" Kind of Birthday!

A Bama fan with a "Kuntry" nickname could only celebrate his 35th birthday with a very special kind of cake! Roll Tide Roll!

Bootie and Booby Cookies

What better cookies for a lingerie shower than these? Congrats, Tiffany!

Lexi's First Birthday

Lexi's mom sent me a picture of the plates and napkins she planned to use at Lexi's first birthday party.  I based her cake on those!  Here are pictures of both!

It's a Dancing Kind of Birthday - at 89 years of age!

Shawne's grandfather turned 89 years old last week.  Shawne wanted a special cake for the occasion, and what does Papa like to do each week? Well, go dancing, of course!

New Technique - Brush Embroidery

Preeti gave me the colors to use and left it to me to decorate a cake to celebrate Jeremy and Jessica's engagement.  Brush Embroidery is a technique using royal icing, a piping bag, and a paint brush.  This was my first attempt, and I loved it.

Abbey's 13th Birthday!

Turquoise and houndstooth to celebrate Abbey's 13th birthday! I hope you had a great birthday!

A "Caffeinated" Groom's Cake

Stephen LOVES coffee, and that love is reflected in his chosen groom cake.  A coffee mug cake - chocolate cake with mocha frosting and chocolate covered expresso beans for decor.  Congrats to you and your bride!

Lego's Birthday Party!

What ELSE would you want when you have a Lego's birthday party? A Lego's Cake, of course!

Llama Birthday Party

Anika loves books and loves her Llama books. So when her 2nd birthday came, Momma knew what kind of cake she would want!

A Stroller Centerpiece

Ms. Rita wanted a cake with a baby in a stroller for a baby shower she was hostessing.  Unfortunately, I had to be out of town that particular weekend, so we decided that I would make a cake "dummy" for her centerpiece.  This is NOT cake but styrofoam covered by fondant, topped with her stroller.

A Summer Celebration

The Women's Ministry celebrated the end of summer with a "Southern Summer Celebration." The centerpieces and desserts were one in the same! Take a look at the "cool" cupcakes!
