Congrats Jennie and Brandon!!!

So glad I could make Jennie and Brandon's wedding cake yesterday! They are some of the nicest people and were both beautiful on the big day! The wedding was outside at Flint Ridge and was such a beautiful, sunny day for a wedding.

Jennie is an art teacher, so we had a lot of fun before the wedding getting the design of the cakes JUST RIGHT. She wanted to go with an art deco theme, I love how unique these cakes were.

Tough decision for choices of flavors... strawberry (Jennie and Brandon's favorite), red velvet, and yellow. They cut the top of the three tier cake outside in the tent in front of all the guests. This gave me a chance to cut the cake behind the scenes, which I definitely liked.
Of course, Charlie was the first person to get a piece of the cake.

Thanks to Alex for being a great cake cutting assistant! Just what he wanted to do instead of watch football... he's just too good at it, would hate to waste such talent : )

The ceremony was in front of the house with close to 200 white chairs on each side of the steps. Jennie came around the side of the house (opposite the tent) for her grand entrance. We were told the moment was out-of-a-movie gorgeous! I can definitely say that she fit this description, regardless of the moment.

Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Blake!

There's no place like... LOGAN ALUMINUM

Last Friday we had a team building for the Human Resources department at Logan Aluminum. The clouds represent the three different units (Benefits, Medical, Wellness; Employee Relations; Human Resource Development). The theme was "There's no place like Logan Aluminum," based on the Wizard of Oz. Of course, I couldn't agree more!!!

Gender Reveal Cake

I'm so glad I got to make a gender reveal cake to find out if Natalie and Derek's little baby was a boy or girl. If you're not familiar with the idea of a gender reveal cake, here's how it works... Natalie and Derek went to the doctor to find out what they were having, except THEY decided not to find out until that night. Once they finished the ultrasound, either "boy" or "girl" was written on a piece of paper and sealed in an envelope. I was the only person to know the gender until the party. I filled the cake with the appropriate color icing and tried to keep Mollie from driving herself crazy with wanting to find out : )

Time for the party!!! Not only did their family and friends find out the baby's gender from the cake, but so did they.

Drum Roll Please....

It's a BOY!!!

Love their faces here after the first look... pure excitement!!!

Oh, how much blue they are going to see! So excited for you guys : )

Ainsley's 3rd Birthday!

What a cute party theme.... Under the Sea!!!

This cake almost told a story. The bottom layer was under the sea, the middle was full of palm trees and the top was the clouds... Ainsley is on the top in a inter tube (of course with a bow : ))

Each layer was a different flavor... bottom = vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling, middle = strawberry cake with buttercream filling and top = chocolate with cookies and cream filling.

How cute is little Miss Ainsley with her birthday girl shirt???

Me with the birthday girl (and our flower girl next June!)

Hi, Ainsley! She loved her trampoline and was definitely a jumping bean! She told us she jumped ALL NIGHT LONG and I definitely don't doubt it! : )

What "Under the Sea" birthday party would be complete without a little time in the pool?

Happy Birthday Chanler!

Anyone remember the cute zebra/softball cake I made about a month ago for Zoe'? This cake was for her sister, Chanler! Have a fabulous birthday!

So pleased with the way this cake turned out... what could be more perfect for a 14-year-old girl? That's what I thought, this is pretty much the best!

Good job with the design, Chanler! So glad I could make your cake!

Congrats Brad and Laura!

Anyone who knows Brad will not be surprised that his grooms cake was UK! Better yet, Rupp Arena!

The crowd in the stands are cheering on Brad and Laura and announcing the date, 8-13-11!

Congrats to both of you! I'm so glad I could be a part of your special day!

Meredith (or as Alex and I know her, "Corndog"!) and her tinkerbell cake! She told us that over 3 days she ate 9 corndogs, so she got a new nickname--even if we are the only ones to use it.

How cute is she?! Her skirt almost doesn't look like cake!

Harry Potter Cupcakes

These cupcakes were for a friend's 14-year-old sister. They were actually pretty fun to make, especially the way I made the scarves. The cupcakes were chocolate and vanilla and the ones on the side were key lime (for the "adults" at the party). Ashton told me that her mom wanted key lime cupcakes because that was her favorite flavor of her wedding cake I made. The funny part was that at the time, her mom was the only adult attending the party.

Another reason why these were fun to make was because I couldn't stop thinking of Abby, Whitney and Jill--the biggest HP lovers I know!

Follow the yellow brick toad to success!

Someone I work with did a team building with Lewisburg School. The theme of the day was "follow the yellow brick road to success" and the teachers really embraced it. On the first day of school, several of the teachers even dressed up as the characters. So, what could be more perfect to celebrate the end of the first week of school than with a cake?!

Congrats Farrah and Nathan!

Farrah... Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of your big day! I'm so excited for you two! It's been a long time since the days of American Girls and Mary Kate and Ashley!

Nothing better than a UK grooms cake!!!

So pretty!

Happy Birthday Zoe'!

What 9-year-old wouldn't love to design their own birthday cake? Every detail of this cake was picked by Miss Zoe' and it turned out so cute!

It all came together so well.... from the zebra stripes to the color scheme to the softball on top! Zoe' celebrated her birthday with a pool party and I'm told the cake was a hit (okay, maybe that was a little corny since it has a softball on top!)

My Little Pony!

Happy Birthday Laura Lynn! She loves horses and spent her birthday party riding horses with her friends, such a cute idea!

This cake was fun to make for many reasons... but mostly because it was My Little Pony! My cousins and I loved My Little Pony when we were younger, and definitely loved going to the lake to use our My Little Pony sleeping bags (and hear Gran tell us flying inner tube stories).

Abby (aka Rainbow Dash a few days ago) and I had fun looking up My Little Pony videos and comparing the old version with the new version. Even if we had to change our old names to fit the new characters.
