Purse Cake Class

I announced on The Cake Lady that I would be having a class to make purse cakes. We had sooo much fun! Here are some pictures from our class :)

This is my purse cake. Turquoise zebra stripes with a yellow flower :)

Tiffany's purse cake. Purple zebra stripes.

Emily's cake with turquoise zebra stripes.

Debbie's purse cake with red polka dots.

Marshall Wedding

This is a wedding cake for a good friend of the family. 3-tier squares stacked with roses in each layer. The topper wasn't there when I set up the cake :( All vanilla cake with buttercream icing.

Baby Shower for a Prince

This cake was for a baby shower for a baby boy. The theme was "Prince". It is a vanilla cake, lemon filling, and lemon buttercream frosting. The actual crown is made from marshmallow fondant but all of the piping was done with lemon buttercream.

The Cake Lady

So, in a moment of insanity (Wait, who am I kidding??? My life is constantly insane!) Okay, so one of my moments of complete craziness, I decided to start a Face Book page all about my cakes and cupcakes! My thinking was so that I could bombard that page with all of my yummies and keep my regular Face Book page about everything else. Is there anything in my life besides baking you ask??? Well, sometimes lol!

So, I'm having lots of fun as "The Cake Lady". I decided if I actually ever open a bakery that will be the name. I've toyed with lots of different names, "Let's Bake Some Cake", "Got Cake?" etc. Then I finally realized that whenever people talk about me to others who don't know me, they always refer to me as The Cake Lady. So I thought it was perfect! So, go find me on Face Book. After I created my page I realized there were also a few other Cake Lady's pages, mine is the one with a 2 tier Halloween Cake for the profile picture! Simply because I love Halloween :)

I had a little contest right after I started my page. All of my fans had to tell me what their favorite frosting was. I decided to pick the first person who said that one of MY frostings was their favorite, and they would get 1 dozen cupcakes with their favorite frosting for free! It just so happened it was one of my best friends who won :) So here is a picture of Tiffany's cupcakes, vanilla cake with peanut butter frosting :)

Wedding Cake 1/16/10

These are a couple of images I have of the finished wedding cake from this past weekend. This was a much different wedding cake than I've done in the past. Lots of fun and the colors were just beautiful together! Cake is covered in fondant with fondant butterflies and flowers. The designs on the butterflies were made out of royal icing.

It looks like the cake is extremely crooked in this picture, but I can assure you it was just the angle I took the picture :) I seriously need some photography skills lol!

Happy Birthday Ezra!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

I saw this sweet cake on a website and absolutely had to do my own creation for our Christmas dessert. Little tricky cutting the fondant freehand but not too bad for someone who has NO artistic talents!
