30 Ways to Look Younger

This cake was for a 30th birthday party. She sells Usborne Books so it was perfect to make a stack of books as her cake. My favorite part is the "K' bookmark!

30 Ways to Look Younger was such a cute idea! I loved making this one.


...Rora sat on the box!!!! Mollie and I were cleaning the kitchen and had the cake in the dinning room. At the same time we heard a noise and I ran in there to find Rora sitting on the cake box! Luckily we had saved some of the extra icing because we had extra cake (YUM!) but had already cleaned the icing bags and tips.

The damage done to the cake and the box!

The final finished product!!!

Alex's Birthday Surprises!!!

Let the fun begin...

SURPRISE! Mollie and I decorated Alex's office at church since his birthday was on Wednesday and that's where he was all night : )

We like to call Alex an "extremist" so I had to at least try to do something out of the ordinary. I think we accomplished that!

It was sooo fun to decorate (especially with Christmas music playing in the background)!

Balloons!!! The BIRTHDAY BOY one wins as the favorite!

View of the middle of the room from the floor!

More balloons...

Of course we had to take the baby with us to leave little reminders (cat hairs) of her presence.

"I'm at work!"

Rora was all over his office! It was a struggle to not send him a pic of her last night to have him guess where she was : )

See, all over the place...

Now to the most important part of a birthday... THE CAKE! It was strawberry with cream cheese frosting because that's Alex's favorite!

His favorite things... a keyboard for everything music, WKU and Ole Miss!

And now--everything he hates... UK! Go CATS! I couldn't resist : )

I love the little man! Just like the swimmers I made over the summer, his finger are my favorite part : )

Day of the Dead!

Congrats Brad and Michelle!!! The original cake idea was sushi but Brad changed his mind a couple weeks ago to "Day of the Dead!"

Brad ordered the topper to bring the cake idea together! The cake was spiced pumpkin flavor and perfect for a fall wedding : )

I absolutely LOVED the wedding cake... it was sooo pretty and tasted just as good. It was dark chocolate champagne and tiramisu!!!!

The skulls "preview" that I sent Mollie since she was already in Lexington for the wedding when I made the cake.

Once the cake had been cut and served, the caterer put the day of the dead topper in the center of the macaron tray.

Congrats Brad and Michelle... the wedding was BEAUTIFUL!!!

Brad & Michelle's Wedding Shower

We had a wedding shower for Brad and Michelle yesterday at Mollie's and it was perfect! We couldn't decide on a design for the cake so I made it match the pretty napkins! The cake was pistachio flavor and the inside color almost matched the ribbon!

HAHAHAHA! Alex has no idea I even took this picture so he is going to LOVE that I posted it. Mollie and I had watched a few too many episodes of Grey's Anatomy yesterday morning so by the time Alex stopped was cleaning time. Mollie asked him to grab the pledge out of the closet but little did he know that was only the beginning. Mollie gave him a list of tasks including pledging, windexing, taking out the trash and all the sweeping : ) He's too good! (and didn't complain at all!)

Pretty balloons (at the perfect height!)

Balloons at the front door.

This banner was carefully and creatively made by Abby and Anne! : )

Pretty flowers on the kitchen table.

Abby with the cake--since I didn't want to be in the picture with it! Great job on the ribbon, Anne!

We loved the engagement ring balloon!

The table of goodies... especially the chocolate covered strawberries (right, Mols?!)

The other side of the table. The stand with the cheese and crackers has a little picture of Brad and Michelle at the back... it was too cute!

SOOO pretty!
My bride : )

Beth and Gran made Morgan's and she had rosettes at the top (made me think of Whitney, Morgan and Bekah and our fun project runway parties... make it work!)

The winners! Mom was the bride... too funny!

Michelle and her pretty BOWquet that Mollie put together! (No bows were broken in the making of this masterpiece!)

Gran, Peewee and Captain Jack!!!! : ) This is probably my favorite picture of the day!
