This is a cake that I did for our pastor's twin boys. They love Legos so the theme was obvious! Had lots of fun making this and learned that corners on a cake really aren't that tough! Next up (both for this weekend) is a "Littlest Pet Shop" cake and then a two tiered brown and pink polka dot.

"Laughing Cakes"

"Laughing Cakes" (Named after own son, Isaac) is officially open for business! As many of you know, I have been playing with cakes and all that is buttercream for some time now. If you find yourself in need of a birthday, Christmas or "Hey, It's Wednesday" cake... gimme a holler! I promise to have reasonable prices and delicious cake. And, as healthy as I eat on a daily basis, I can tell you my cakes are decadent and full of every ingredient a cake should have. I figure, it's cake, don't skimp on ingredients.... just eat a smaller piece! If you haven't seen pics, please take a look at older posts and then dream up your own!

A cake that will "bowl" you over~

Bailey Rose has joined a Saturday morning bowling league and has actually gotten quite good! This was her second time to bowl and she had a blast! She wants you to know that she uses an 8 lb ball..... apparently that is a big deal.... not sure why, it just is (at least to a nine year old!).

I got a new kit that makes fondant roses. I love it! (Can you tell! Ha!)

This was a three tiered soft pink cake in fondant. The roses are fondant and the ribbon is fabric. This was for a baby shower and the theme was inspired by the nursery bedding. The "E" was in gumpaste.

Happy Birthday and Happy Halloween!

October 31st is known by many to be Halloween but if you are a Girl Scout you know that it is also Juliette Gordon Low's birthday (The founder of Girl Scouting and Girl Guiding!). Our service unit had a birthday party in honor of Juliette. It was big fun! I made the cake for the event; one table cake and two sheet cakes (there were 90 people!!). This is a close up of Miss Juliette atop her birthday cake. The two tiers of the cake have different badges taken from the Brownie and junior and Cadette badge books.

The whole crew on a halloween adventure! Isaac, Jordan, Morgan, Bailey Rose, Kloe, Niki (in front of Kloe), Lesley. Some friends that live out in the "country" came to trick or treat in our neighborhood. What a bunch of goblins!

Mrs. Lisa (Morgan's Step momma) brought an edible craft for the kids to do. The idea was to construct the treats and then go trick or treating and come back and eat the treats.... yea, didn't quite last that long!

Again, my pics are out of order... who knows? This is a tattoo that BaileyRose got at the Girl Scout party.

Even little brother got in on the action....
