A Race Through Italy

Another one of my favorite customers is @GenSpin. She is one of the sweetest and most positive ladies I know. She wanted a Cars 2 cake for her son's birthday. He loves Francesco from the movie, so she wanted an Italian touch to the cake. I went with a race through Italy theme with famous monuments from the country. Also, the race track is in the shape of a "5" because that's how old her son turned.

Treasure Huntin'

I love pirates. I mean who wouldn't want to drink rum all day and look for treasure? I always enjoy making a pirate-themed cake. This one was for a co-worker. She sent me a bunch of cakes she liked and I just combined elements from them.

Freaky Just Got Fabulous

@VS_Jess is one of my favorite customers! She's also my hair flower/bow lady. She's just an all-around awesome lady! I lovelovelove making cakes for her, especially for her daughters because they get so excited. Totally makes my day.

This was a Monster High cake I made for her oldest daughter.

Hello Pretty

My lovely friend and co-worker, @fauxamor, celebrated her birthday back in November. See, it's been awhile since I've updated this blog! She loves many things, but some of her favorites are unicorns, Hello Kitty, the color pink and Rob Pattinson. I combined all those things for one girly, sparkly cake!

Fight On!

I give one of my co-workers a hard time every time she orders a cake. Mostly because she gave me a guilt trip when I couldn't make her daughter a birthday cake one year because I was at Comic-Con. It's all fun and games and she's a frequent customer so I don't sass it up too much.

Her nephew's birthday party was the day of a USC game, so that was the theme for the party. I think her nephew was just turning one, so it's not like he cared. haha I made a football cake with the school logo.

A Fish Out of Water

A former co-worker's boyfriend ordered a birthday cake for her back in July. She returned the favor for his birthday a couple months ago. He's an outdoors person, so she wanted a fish cake, specifically a trout. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to pull it off, but I think it turned out ok!

It's a Jungle Out There

I got an order for a jungle-themed birthday cake. Here are the decorations that were used for the party:

I made fondant toppers to match the decorations with a green cake base and leaf accents.

Dr. Seuss Mashup

A former co-worker hosted a baby shower for her best friend a few months ago. The theme for the shower was Dr. Seuss. She gave me all the ideas and books she wanted to incorporate and I mashed them all up into a cake!

The fish are my favorite part. :)

There's a Cake for That

One of my regular customers wanted a cake for her best friend. She gave me a long list of her friend's favorite things and offered some suggestions for the cake. I wanted the cake to make sense instead of just sticking a bunch of random things on it. Since her friend loves her iPhone I suggested making an iPhone cake and having the apps be all her interests. Genius, I know. ;)

Time to Play Catch-Up

I haven't been taking as many cake orders as usual lately, but I've still made a few. I'll do some catch-up entries and then get back to my regularly scheduled baking adventures. :)
