Animal Print and Puppy Dogs

Is this not the cutest little cake ever? It was my first time to make a "mini". I call it that because it is a 4 inch cake on top of a 6 inch. I came up with the idea because so many people just do not need to serve enough guests to require a regular two tiered cake but I adore tiered cakes. They look so important. So I thought....why not. It was just adorable. I can't wait to make another one. It will only serve around 12 to 15 or so but you can always add a bunch of cutie patutie mini cupcakes to go along with it!
 This is a shot of the back. I was so very proud of my zebra print!
 And here is the cake with those adorable mini cupcakes I mentioned. How perfect is that? All this precious mini stuff for a baby shower is just perfect. Okay....I am ready for a baby shower now. Good to know about 6 ladies in my Life Connection Class at church are pregnant so I am sure I will have many opportunities to make more! Below is the bedding I based the design of the cake on. It just makes me a very small way...kinda...maybe want a little girl. But then....ummm...I really love my boys!   lol
So after all the fun I had with the girlie one, I got to make this little sport for a big one year old! Now this is a "take 2" of a cake I made several months ago. I just loved the design so I was thrilled when she asked me to make it again. 

Well, that's it for the week. It was lots of fun. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. See you next week. Hopefully with a cute little Auburn number!

Golf Cake and Cake Pops

 I was asked to make this cake for a surprise birthday party. It was a big one...12 inches! So simple and clean, but I loved it.
 The golf ball and the golf bag are both hand sculpted out of fondant. I am sure that using a mold to make the ball would have been much easier, but I wanted it big. It was about the size of a baseball.
 Here is the cake along side the yummy golf ball cake pops. They turned out so cute. I was very proud of them. I know, I know there are no dimples. The little golf tees let you know what we were going for though....right?
Well, all I can say is he is one lucky man. His wife was determined to make this one impressive party. When I delivered the cake, I knew she had succeeded. I didn't get to meet her because she was bringing the birthday boy later, but it was one rockin' party. I wanted to stay and join in. I definitely have a challenge to outdo our little bowling party next year!'s to wonderful parties where we show our special someones how much they mean to us!

A Little Bowling....Cake!

My wonderful hubby's birthday was this week. We had a great time celebrating with friends at the local bowling alley. It was such a refreshing night of fun. And it is always so rewarding to make a cake for one of my own. Of course, I am sure he would have preferred a Charger Cake or MSU cake, but I thought this little number fit the event perfectly.

 Notice the nice marbling.....much more distinct in person.

 Sooooo....we'll just say I am much better at making cakes than bowling. I had the lowest score of everyone there. I think I tied with my four year old. Oh well! Maybe next time.
 Enjoying a little Icee break.
 Little man had a lot of fun. So adorable to see him carrying that big ball around.

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a wonderful time!

Hello Kitty Cake

 What a perfect cake for a precious little girl! I just adored this cake. So bright and sweet. Well.....this is strange, I don't have much to say. Guess I will just have to let the pictures speak for themselves. Hope you enjoy!
