Happy Birthday, Grandpa!
Many of you may not know that I have 2 very cute and fun boys, Benjamin (almost 6) and Samuel (almost 4). They constantly ask me if they can help and generally get told no, because the particular thing I am making is going to someone else! They are great assistants in the kitchen, so I enlisted their help to make my Dad (their Grandpa’s) birthday cupcakes!

Okay, I’m a few cakes behind and I have another two I’m currently working on.
Daisy Birthday Cake
The first cake was for a mother’s birthday. It happened to be Mother’s day weekend. The family didn’t want to focus on how old their mom was, but who she is to the people in her family…hence the flowers with the names written on them. The cupcakes went with the cake.
Graduation Cap Cake
The second cake was for a graduation celebration at my husband’s work. Three of his co-workers were graduating.

Quilted, Pink Roses Baptism Cake

Pink Rose Cupcakes
I just love the quilted look of this cake, and the pink ribbon roses, and the little pearls, and the fluffiness of the vanilla buttercream on the cupcakes…okay, I loved it all!
Emily we loved the cake and cupcakes. Carrot was the favorite! Almost too pretty to eat! ~ Erica
I also loved delivering this cake! The little one that was the reason for the cake had the same kind of hair that my youngest son had when he was an infant (I miss that hair!)…I’ll leave you with a bonus picture of my son when he was only a few weeks old!
Love that fluff!

This cake is a sample cake for an upcoming project that has the potential to keep me very busy! I love how it turned out, but next time, the big bow will be purple! Those cupcakes are jumbo cupcakes! They are about twice the size of a normal cupcake! I’m actually liking how they came out!

Baby Einstein Worm 1st Birthday Cake
Sorry it’s taken me a long time to post these, but this was a super busy weekend! Along with the cakes, we had friends staying with us and my sister was throwing a House-Warming Party.
Surprises to come…so keep visiting! One involves apples and the other pumpkins!

Swimming Pool Cake and Cupcakes for Birthday
Let me start by saying this was the most fun cake to deliver! When we pulled up, the two boys were both sitting on the front porch! They both wanted to help carry it inside and then oo-ed and ah-ed over it and wanted to touch it! They kept asking if everything was edible! SUPER cute!
Thank you very much! The cake and cupcakes were great! Everyone loved them! I have several people that would like your website information to order cakes for their next event. I will definitely have you make our next cake if you are interested! Thanks again! ~Amanda

21st Birthday Cake
Monkey-Themed Cake and Cupcakes
This was a birthday cake weekend! The first was a party for a young lady turning 21 and the second was for the cutest little red-head turning 2! I learned a new trick this week that helps speed up the drying time on gum paste. If you turn your oven light on, put the item in the oven that you want to dry and close the door, the drying time significantly decreases! The items on the 21st birthday cake were all done this way. Just remember, if you use this technique, just make sure EVERYONE that lives with you knows…the smell of burning gum paste is NOT pleasant! I just left a note for all to see!
What difference 2 years and some classes makes! This is the cake I did almost 2 years ago for my nephew’s 1st birthday!
Monkey Cakes for Nephew's Birthday
Emily: The cake was delicious and Bridget loved it. Thanks so much – I’ll definitely keep you in mind for the future. ~Kathy

1st Birthday Baseball Cake
4th of July Cupcakes
This was a BUSY weekend! There was a first birthday cake (with a dozen cupcakes too), a big baptism cake and 2 dozen cupcakes for a 4th of July celebration! This coming week will be busy too…a birthday cake for my son and my first wedding cake!
This cake was awesome!! Everyone at the party commented on how wonderful it looked and then when we ate it, everyone was yet again impressed at how tasty and moist it was!!! Thank you, Emily for making my son’s cake and first birthday so special and memorable!!! ~Jennifer Flanagan
We wanted to thank you for the beautiful cake for Zachary’s baptism. It looked great and tasted even better! I love decorating cakes myself but now with three kids I can’t ever imagine having the time it takes to complete ones like I did when my girls were little. I’m sure we’ll be in touch with you again for future celebrations. ~Nicole Lowe
