Sweet Sixteen cake

Sweet Sixteen cake - This was for my adorable friend Kenzie. Seriously, such a cute girl. She loves Bath and Body lip gloss, eye shadow, TOMS shoes, SJP perfume, black purses, and of course her new Jeep Liberty. :) I really had so much fun with this one. It isn't a great pic though. I especially loved the SJP NYC perfume container. That took forever but turned out fun.

Bowser cake

Bowser cake - I love doing cakes for Lisa's kids and this was no exception. Jared wanted another Mario cake this year, but I wanted to do something different. I have just made Mario too many times now. :) He said he loves the new Bowser's Inside Story game. In the game Bowser gets really big and then sucks Mario inside of him. So I decided it would be fun to do a giant Bowser cake depicting the scene where he is in the trees. It is harder than I expected to make a 2D character 3D, but it was a lot of fun.

Alice in Wonderland cake

Alice in Wonderland cake - I really probably shouldn't have done this one. I really didn't have the time. But I have always wanted to do an Alice in Wonderland cake, so how could I say no? I had SO much fun with this! I didn't want to do the Mad Hatter or the Tea Party because that is what every other Alice cake I have ever seen was centered around. So I decided I would do something based on when she first gets to Wonderland. They wanted characters from the new Alice movie, but I wanted to do the unusual one. I decided on the Bandersnatch right off because that is new to this Alice movie. She specifically requested the Cheshire cat, so that was in too. You have to have Alice in an Alice in Wonderland cake, and I have always had a fondness for Tweedle Dee and Tweedle dumb, so they were in as well. I wanted to do the white rabbit and the talking roses, but I simply ran out of time. So now I need someone to order another. :) Only this time I want to do the queen resting her feet on a pig and Alice in the Um dress. Come on know you want to!

Cowgirl Bridal Shower Cookies

Cowgirl Bridal Shower Cookies - These were made to match a bridal shower invitation. I love doing that!

Firetruck cake

Firetruck cake - this was made for my cute cousin who I had never met until this day. :) Her hubby is now a firefighter and so we did this for his birthday. What fun it is to keep in touch with people I love through cakes. :)
