What a Week!

A fire truck and a much more different could two cakes be? It was a crazy busy week, but so much fun. Only having boys, I really get into the "girlie" cakes. The unicorn started out as a butterfly cake, but the little girl changed her mind as all little girls do. I was a little disappointed at first, but I really enjoyed making this one. I still managed to fit a butterfly in after all. The mom sent me this picture of a plate the child had picked out.
This family is so dear to me, so I really wanted to impress them. When they came to pick the cake up, the little girl's face just lit up. She seemed to love it! I was so happy and it couldn't have been for a sweeter family!
Flower "polka dots!
There is that butterfly!
And a hand sculpted fondant unicorn to match the plate. Although it is edible, it will also dry really hard and can be kept for years as a keepsake of the event!

And then it was on to the fire truck. Now, it was a late addition for the week, but boy am I ever happy I got to make it. I made a fire truck for my little boy's 3rd birthday back before I actually made cakes. I thought I was the stuff back then. I was so proud of my homemade cake! When my friend called to see if I could add her to schedule I was all over it. Her entire family was so sweet. They kept bragging on the cake. It was such an encouragement to me. This is why I make cakes!!!!!
The 2 was a last minute addition. My hubby insisted that it had to have a number so I rolled the fondant out this morning and added one. In the end I was happy he talked me into it (just don't tell him that).
And what is a fire truck without some gauges.
I thought it would be fun to see how far I have come in a year and a half. It is funny to think of how very proud I was of this cake. And honestly, the feeling I had about this cake back then is what lead me to where I am today. What a blessing! God had the future all laid out...I just had to wait on His timing!!!

I hope you all have a wonderfully sweet week!!!

  1. Amazing transformation - and this is an encouragement to me on the journey I am on with God. I wonder where I'll be in a year and a half too. I had some of Carolyn's cake - it was the hit of the party and delicious too. Sending an email your way asap.
