Kylie's Cake

This is my little cousin Kylie's 13th birthday cake. She wanted it to look similar to Heather's cake. I have to say this cake looks a thousand times better!! It's a topsy turvy cake. With Vanilla cake and Chocolate buttercream icing. And MM Fondant and decorations. It was fun and I am getting quicker at doing these cakes! So, that's nice that it doesn't take me 10 hours to make a little cake like this! Colors were Teal ( with Luster dust) and Brown!

I just couldn't decide on a couple pictures. Sorry, my son is in the background eating breakfast in some of the pics! :)

#5 Cake

This cake is for my little boy who is turning 1! I can't believe it! I feel kind of bitter sweet about it. On one hand I'm so excited for him to walk and have fun this summer and grow a great relationship with his brother and on the other, I simply can't believe that he's one!! Anyways, here is his cake!! This was my 5th fondant cake! I can't believe it, it feels like I have been making them forever!! It is chocolate cake with vanilla Buttercream and MM Fondant. With a Baseball Theme! This was a lot of fun to make and it was fast!! I got the idea for it from Pink Cake Box! They have great cakes!f
I must acknowledge that my husband Kevin, made the bats. He is so great! They look awesome!!! Thank you honey!!!

So, I pretty much finished Carmen's cake this afternoon, but the elements didn't turn out the way I had hoped so, I bagged it and went a different direction!! Kevin came home from work this afternoon and helped me with the bow a lot! I really appreciate his help!! So, here is the first version of Carmen's cake! It wasn't totally done, I hadn't put a border on it yet.

Basically the decals on the first tier didn't look so hot. It's alot harder to get them to look good when you are putting them on the side of a cake verses on a board. Also, I think I need to try a different icing for this, my icing kept getting air bubbles and it would mess the design up! This is the finished product!!! I'm VERY happy with it!!!! I think it looks more like her too!!

Carmen's cake

Here are the beginning stages on Carmen's birthday cake! I've had fun doing it but it sure has given me a run for my money. It's a cherry chip cake with cherry vanilla icing. And Marshmellow fondant!

The cakes turned out really well shaped. I got new pans so they turned out sooo even!
The two cakes with their thin coating of buttercream before fondant is put on.
The two cakes stacked and covered in fondant! This was a stressful process. I have never stacked before so it was a new experience! But I think they turned out pretty well!

Becca's Cake

So, as I said on my family blog it was Becca and Kenna's birthday's this last week and Melinda did a great job on Becca's cake! I thought I would post a picture of Becca and her cake on here since it is a cake blog! Not just my cakes but my families too! Melinda does such a great job she totally deserves recognition! So, these are pictures of MELINDA'S cakes. We talked today about going into business together when we live in Idaho Falls. Plus, we would have to add Trina to the list when she comes back from her super long vacation in Hawaii! Anyways, Melinda you rock!!!!

I just received a package for a wedding cake that I'm doing!! I was so excited to get it. It took it over a week to get here and I'm dieing to make a cake now! I have 3 cakes to do this month and they don't start til next week, I don't know if I can wait till next week to use my new things! But, I really can't eat anymore cake. I have eaten more in the last month than I can handle! I think I'm most excited about the bench scraper and the new knife. It's blade is 10 inches long!! I know that's probably not very big but it's the biggest knife I've got!! :)
