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 husband....it 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 fondant...no 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. 


Enjoy!

Woody Cake



This is my third cake to create for cool little dude Caden. He is such a cutie...and the same age as my little Ian. I love creating cakes for this sweet family. His mommy is the most amazing newborn baby photographer. She took these great pics of the cake at his party. I know...I know...everyone was wondering why they weren't taken in front of my window...lol.









Below are his second and third birthday cakes. 






You just have to go check out his mommy's amazing work at http://melissawellsphotography.com/. You might even come across a shot of my sweet little guy!



Princess Belle Cake


I created this sweet little Belle cake for the most precious little girl I know. She was in my class when I taught two year old preschool. She has to be the most polite, well mannered child I have ever met. She was so deserving of a great cake and I was so happy to create it for her. I love you sweet Hayden!

Skylanders Giants Cake


My oldest son chose a Skylanders Giants party. He wasn't too pleased with my recreation of the portal of power, but I thought it wasn't that bad. I cut and painted (with food coloring) each letter of the Skylanders logo and all the elements. I so need a cricut machine.  






Minion Cake


I was so excited to create this adorable minion cake for my little guy's Despicable Me party. My newest baby was only three weeks old at the time of the party, so it was a requirement that it be a fairly easy design and this one fit the bill. It was soooo much fun and a huge hit with all the children. As you can see below we only ate a tiny portion of the cake....and it was a big party. Eight layers of cake go a long way!


I also created this fun watermelon minion fruit display......definitely not my forte, but it was so adorable. My son wanted to keep it after the party. 

And here are a few other pictures from the party. We had a blast. Great party theme!





 My friend's son liked our little minion so much that he decided to have a Despicable Me party as well. I was thrilled to create this little guy for the second time around...of course he really wasn't that little. It was a huge cake. 




I hope you enjoyed them! They were a blast to create. See you next time!
