A Cake for a Boss

My favorite cakes to make are the ones that only a few people will understand. My boss celebrated 15 years at the company last week. We had a little potluck for him and of course I made the cake. I decided to incorporate three of his favorite things: Dolly Parton, cakes and wine. Also, it's been a running joke how much he hates the word "moist," so I had to put it on the cake.

Every Cake Needs a Captain

Two Avengers themed orders in a week?! Best week ever! This one was all about the Captain of the team.

Avengers Assemble!

I'm SO excited for The Avengers movie. I'm counting down the seconds! When a co-worker asked if I could make some Avengers cupcakes for her boyfriend, I was all over it. I was planning on making some just for fun anyways, so it worked out perfectly. :)

Red, White and Black

This cake started out as a spring themed cake. I had creative freedom, so I decided to go with flowers. Springtime = flowers! I planned on doing a pink, green and yellow theme, but then I found out the birthday girl's favorite colors are red and black. Not exactly spring colors, but that's ok! I made the flowers cascade and added some fancy piping.

Cupcake Bows

One of my favorite ladies, @VS_Jess, last weekend. I wanted to make her some cupcakes and she left the design up to me. Since she makes the cutest hair flowers and bows, I decided to make some of her creations in cupcake form!

Tee Time

My cousin's father-in-law turned 70 two weeks ago. She had a black and white themed party for him, but wanted the cake to have a golf element. So I made a golf ball with some silver and black argyle. Argyle makes things fancy, of course!

Put On Your Dancing Shoes

When I think of disco, the words "elegant" and "fancy" don't really come to mind. I had to make it work for a recent cake though. The co-worker who ordered it sent me the invites to her 50th birthday party which were black with white filigree. She wanted it to match the invites and incorporate a disco theme, plus a high heel and dancing steps. Lots to put on a cake, but I think I pulled it off.
