Xbox 360 Madden Avatar cake

Xbox 360 Madden Avatar cake - This was made for one of the funniest boys I know. :) He always plays Madden on the 360, loves Avatar (the cartoon Last Airbender variety) and is going to serve a mission for his church in Guatemala. So I tried to incorporate all that into this cake. It was a lot of fun.

Fiber Optic Cable Medusa Head cake

Fiber Optic Cable Medusa Head cake - Ok...so doing cakes for my hubby's work friends is always interesting. :) He came home and said, "It's Phil's birthday tomorrow....can you do a cake?" I said "Sure, what's he into?" He said, "I don't know. Phil doesn't really share much with the group. But he is our cable guy." My first thought was....Phil the Cable Guy...Git R Done cake...but Alan said that just didn't fit Phil. So my mind was spinning...maybe a little too fast...I have been watching a lot of mythology movies lately, Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief, Clash of the Titans, stuff like that. So suddenly I get this image in my head of a Medusa head with fiber cable instead of snakes. I giggled a little at the thought, then I giggled a lot. So I decided it had to be done. I decided I would do Phil in stone with cable hair.
He was a little unstable at first, so I kept putting him in the freezer to chill out and every time I would open the freezer for a minute and see him in there...I would laugh out loud. Man I had a fun night...

Airplane Shower cake

Airplane Shower cake - This was made to match the bedding and decor of the baby-to-be's new room. I was really excited for this one because the decor was so cute! I hope I did it justice. :)

University of Illinois cookies

University of Illinois cookies - These were made for a friend of my little sis that is a huge University of Illinois fan. The headdress cookie was a lot of fun, but I am glad I only had to do one. :) That was a tough one!

Black and Red Bridal Shower cupcakes

Black and Red Bridal Shower cupcakes - These were red velvet and french vanilla

Booties Baby Shower cake

Sunflower wedding cake

Sunflower wedding cake - This was for a dear friend of mine. It was a second wedding, so we did the smaller cakes and cupcakes. Congratulations Heidi!

Orvin Wedding cake

Orvin Wedding cake - When I first started with this design, I thought I was going to hate it. The more I took it from the original and made it my own, the more I really loved it. The flowers are all handmade fondant flowers and they took me all night, but I think they add such a unique element. I really enjoyed this one!

Smalley Wedding cake

Smalley Wedding cake - This one had such great contrast. I have really grown to love black for weddings.

Hello Kitty cake

Hello Kitty cake - I have a big soft spot for Sanrio, so I was excited to do this one. Takes me back to my days of visiting the Hello Kitty store in the mall.

BYU? cake

BYU? cake - This cake is full of inside jokes...all of which would take a while to explain. Hopefully we didn't go too far in the fun. :) You never know what kind of feelings putting a U on a BYU fan cake will envoke. He he he.

Diego buttercream 2

Diego Buttercream 2 - This is one I have done before, but not for a long time, so I figured I would post even though it is a re-do of an older design. :)

Dickerson Wedding cake

Dickerson Wedding cake - I was so excited to finally do a wedding cake with draping. I love the look and had so much fun with this one. :)
