(I did not create the cookie cake. This was included in the pictures I accidentally deleted so the customer was kind enough to send me this shot she got of them at the party.)

Her outfit was designed to match what the child would be wearing at the party, so it is not your typical Hello Kitty attire! hehehehe

Smash Cake for photo session with Melissa Wells Photography. Everyone knows she is the best when it comes to newborn photography, but she also rocks for one year olds! I love smash cake photo sessions!!!!! Melissa offers one of my smash cakes to her clients for first birthday/ one year old sessions. You just have to contact her if you have a little one about to be one! or
See how much better my cake looks when real photographer is behind the camera. Here is my shot of it.

Winter Wonderland

Sea Shell Retirement Cake

The shells are all fondant and chocolate.

Ironically, this is the cake I was delivering on Tuesday morning when I got trapped on the interstate in the horrible winter storm that hit Birmingham and Atlanta. I was trapped from 10:00am when I dropped the cake off until 5:30pm when I finally made it home with all three of my children. As much as I loved the cake, it was sad to find out that the retirement party was cancelled and the intended recipient never even got to see it.

Finishing Up the Year!

2013 was an amazing year for me...not so much for Hope's Sweet Cakes. I took a good long break from cake making for the birth of my third baby boy. I so enjoyed my time with him without the stress or worry over creating perfect works of art (as I feel each and every cake just has to be). We also purchased a new (to us) house that had to be completely over hauled. I painted every inch of this thing, top to bottom. I am talking ceilings, trim, walls, window frames, doors....everything. We moved and got settled in. Just as things started to settle down a bit, I picked back up with the cakes. I hadn't realized how much I missed it until I started back. It is truly a blessing that God has gifted me with the ability to do such a fun, rewarding job. I have the sweetest, most encouraging clients a person could ever ask for. I am blessed!

Below are my final cakes of the year. "In Joy" as my son would say!

Go Bulldogs!

We are true Mississippi State fans in this house and I love it when a client wants a MSU cake! This week my dear, sweet friend wanted a Bulldog cake for her son's third birthday that could travel all the way to Starkville for a tailgating party. What better than a helmet. I hope precious Levi loves his cake!

 I would have loved to have been able to make the mask open like a real helmet, but I was afraid that it wouldn't hold up to the long trip. The black gives a good illusion. 

 I created this adorable cake for her daughter a couple years ago. Is that not just as precious as it gets?

This one was a surprise birthday cake for my was just a simple design being he was having a big birthday party with a large cake later that day. It was still huge hit!

Being we are going head to head with Alabama today, I thought it would be fun to share a couple houndstooth cakes I have created as well. 

Each houndstooth is cut out of black printed paper here. My husband and I searched and searched for a fondant cutter and could not find one anywhere, so he made one for me.
