Summer Endings

Well, Papa Russ and Beth's wedding went off without a hitch!  While the weather was iffy on the days around the Wedding Day, the actual Wedding day was GORGEOUS!!  Nothing but blue sky and white puffy clouds.  I'll even post a picture or two of the wedding.  For the wedding, 4 dozen cupcakes were made with buttercream icing, topped with a small daisy!  The 2-tiered wedding cake was home made coconut cake with fondant covering.  Beth's choice of flowers were daisies, and so they shimmered the cake! 

Overall, the wedding was a blast with wonderful friends and a beautiful family!  I'm not sure what orders are in store for me, but I'm sure I'll get the bug to create something new in the very near future for fall! 

Until next time, making memories, one cake at a time!

Summer Summer Summer

Well, it sure has been a while since I was last on here!  What a crazy, busy summer this has been.  It's been filled with family adventure, surgeries (not mine, folks), the death of a family pet (again, not mine), birthday celebrations, friends and family visiting, and upcoming wedding with guaranteed fun, and some good ole sun!

Below you will find some pictures I've taken this summer.  You'll love the Mickey cake for my nephew's 1st birthday, with matching Mickey cupcakes.  Logan just dove into the cake!  I'll have those pictures to post, too.  The before and after!  Also, you'll love the shower cake I did.  I had free reign, but with no guidelines, believe it or not, it was quite difficult.  It was meant to compliment a beachy-type themed bridal shower.  I love the ribbon I lined the cake with.

Now, my dad's wedding is this coming weekend.  I'll be making that wedding cake, with matching cupcakes, this week.  I'll be sure to post pictures after the event!

In the meantime, enjoy the photos and spread the word.  AGain, orders can be made via the blog.  Just go to the "email me" link, and I'd be happy to help if I can!

Until next time....making memories, one cake at a time!
