The cake was so large that I could not lift it alone. I had to have my husband move it from the fridge to my work area. Not sure how much it weighed, but it was a big one over two foot tall. Each tier was a different flavor of cake. The pumpkins were both carrot cake...oh so yummy carrot cake, the second tier was chocolate and the third tier was vanilla with pineapple delish filling. I so wish I could have stayed for the reception. I am betting it was one yummy cake.
War Eagle!!!!...well....not really. But I guess I had to be a fan for the week. I just adore the blue and orange together. So bright and cheerful. And I adore this Auburn Cheer Cake as well.
The scrapbook cake!!! Now first let me start by saying I have never created a scrapbook page in my life. I buy the books that already have everything on them and you just stick your pictures in. So I had to do a little research for this one. And one of the very first sample pages I came across had this little belly silhouette with the ultrasound in the tummy. Oh how I love Facebook. I immediately went on facebook to her page and found the perfect ultrasound picture. This was one of my most personal cakes. I hope she loved it as much as I loved creating it for her.
My sweet birthday boy. He is every bit worth the time I spent on this cake. He is so loving and kind. And all though he has way more than any one could possibly need, he is always conscious of the fact that so many children in the world have so much less. He has the most true heart of any 5 year old I know. God truly blessed me by allowing me to have such a wonderful son.

Does this bear not just make you want to cuddle with a baby? So much fun....I sure hope she kept it.
The 50th Anniversary Mini was so wonderful. 50 years is such an accomplishment. And I later found out that they had not had a real wedding cake at their wedding which made me all the more happy that we had chosen to go with a traditional wedding cake feel for this cake. So maybe my roses don't exactly look like roses....but I tried. I usually go with the more cartoonie roses so this was an adventure for me.
Mini's are so much fun for me. It is really the same amount of work as their larger counterpart, but sometimes they are just perfect for small get togethers. They give the recipient the feel of a big, tiered cake without all the left over cake after the event. It will serve around 15 or so, but really could be stretched to 20 or more.
