Shabby Chic

This is the year of babies in Mike's (my fiance) family. Three of his cousins are pregnant right now. Woah! And one of them, Karyn, is a fan of my cakes so she wanted me to make one for her baby shower.

She's picky. lol And that's alright! She gave me some suggestions like stripes, flowers and she wanted the letter "R" on top. She also told me a few things she didn't want on the cake. No animals, animal prints, purple and a limited amount of pink. All these requirements actually made it easy to figure out the design. I went for a shabby chic theme with green, yellow, white and some pink. I was able to incorporate everything she suggested. I also added some pearl dust for a little shimmer.

I LOVE this cake. Karyn loved it, too. It was definitely a hit at the baby shower!

Polka Dots

Another cake for someone in HR! This one isn't too exciting though. My co-worker wasn't really sure what theme to pick for his girlfriend's daughter, so he went with polka dots.

Absorbent and Yellow and Porous is He!

Another SpongeBob cake! This is the second one I've made that was shaped like him. I forgot that last time I used a bigger cake board. So as I was decorating this one, I realized that I was going to run out of space. lol His arms and legs are a little smaller than I planned. Oops! Also, the first set of eyes I put on him made him look really creepy. He looked like a knock off version of SpongeBob. So I put a bigger set on him and he looked WAY better. No creepy SpongeBob here!

Even though there were a few boo-boos, he still turned out cute!

Princess and the Frog

A co-worker's friend ordered this Princess and the Frog cake. I never got around to seeing the movie when it was in theaters. I really wanted to! I guess I'll have to catch it when it's on DVD. I got the topper from Decopac and used their example to decorate. If I had seen the movie, then I probably would have gotten more creative with it. It turned out cute though!
