Draped Roses Wedding

Draped Roses Wedding - Wow...everything that could have gone wrong with this cake did. :)  Good thing I started early for once!  My power went out right as I went to make the fondant.  I would have had an hour to spare, but just barely made it 30 minutes before show time!  Stress!  I didn't have time to make it as perfect as I wanted to, but I think after 10 years of doing this I am finally getting the hang of these flowers.  It took me two full days to make all these babies!

Girly Buzz Lightyear

Girly Buzz Lightyear - This was for the cutest little girl who is a total girly girl, but loves Buzz.  It was also her grandma's birthday, so we made it so the top could be taken off for the little girl and the bottom for grandma.  It was so much fun to do something for this amazing family I grew up with!

Anna 16th Birthday

 Anna 16th Birthday - This was for a super cute girl in my neighborhood.  :)
