Winnie the Pooh Shower Cake - This was for Ania as well, but for her friend's baby shower. I can't take credit for the design. She found the design on the internet. I wish I knew who to credit. But I loved how simple and sweet it was.
Hand Drawn Winnie the Pooh cake - This one was a first birthday cake, so of course it had a matching smash cake. I really LOVE drawing, so these are always fun for me. I also love classic Pooh and it was fun to get to draw some different scenes this time.
Wig cake - This was for Ania. I have done a lot of cakes for her in the past for her kids and other people, but this was my first time doing one for her own birthday. She told me the theme was "Sexy Wigs", and she wanted the cake to reflect that. This is what I came up with. :) It is fun having a blank slate sometimes. It kind of came out looking Lady Gaga-ish, but I guess that's ok because who has crazier, sexy wigs than Gaga?

Draped Floral Wedding cake - This was a wedding cake that I did a while ago for the step-sister of one of my best friends. I did it quite a while ago but just realized it never got posted. So here it is now. :) Better late than never.

Yellow Sparkle Wedding cake - This one was for the cutest bride. I just loved her. My cute friend Vicky referred her to me and she was just a breeze to work with. Her one request was that she have sparkle on her cake instead of the pearls I usually use for beading. So we used non-edible sparkles for this one. I don't love doing that, but I have to admit, I really liked the 'sparkle'. :) Vicky told me that it must have been tasty too because there was not one piece for them to take home at the end of the night. Yay! I love when people actually eat the cake.
Purple Daisies Wedding Cake - This one was extra stress for me. Early on in my cake making career, I made a cake for this bride's older sister. There was a misunderstanding about dates (before I started getting it in writing. *grin*) with her sister's cake and I ended up doing the cake in 90 minutes and only got there about 45 minutes before the reception ended. It was a disaster. So this time I wanted everything to be perfect. It went off without a hitch this time. :) Thank heaven! I am glad they are good friends and gave me a second chance.
Two sided Missionary/Baby Shower cake - this was a two sided cake, one for an LDS missionary who had just returned home and one side for a baby shower they were holding the same day. I was worried about using black on the baby side, but it was important to the flow of the cake. But I really like the contrast of the black with the lighter colors. Fun stuff!
