Kaity's 7th Birthday

My daughter helped me make this cake for our cousin Kaity's 7th birthday! She had a luau theme. I had a ton of fun teaching my daughter many different techniques used in this cake! I thought she did a great job!

Mini Cupcake Bouquets

In honor of Mother's Day I made "mini" cupcake bouquets! They were so cute! Many people thought they were actually bouquets of flowers on the table until I explained that they were actually cupcakes!

It's Official!!!

Well, I am very excited to spread the word that I am officially a licensed caterer!!! I have been working for over a year trying to secure a kitchen that I could bake out of and become licensed so that I can participate in many different venues and I have finally found one! I went last week and paid the fee and am not licensed! My first real gig since I got my license was this last Saturday at an Open House featuring local women business owners. I had a great time and lots of opportunities to look forward to! Here is a picture of some of the items I had available for sampling as well as purchasing!

I had a couple of my most popular flavors such as Peanut Butter Cookie, Oreo Cookie and Lemonade (middle of the picture and bottom) and then I also debuted some new flavors including Jr Mint (right side of picture), Pineapple Upside Down Cake (Top of picture), and Pop Rocks (left of picture)! By far I think the most popular was the Pineapple Upside Down Cake!

This is a close up of the Jr Mint Cupcake which also received many compliments!
