Cute Owl Graduation Cake

A cute owl cake for a graduation celebration!  I always love having something new to do.  Yes, I just did a couple little owls, but I've never done the chevron pattern, and it was really fun to do something different.  The little books and tassels are my favorites!

 Oh, and I LOVED the color choice!  Dark plum and light green!  So striking together!!!
Look at that cute little owl face!  Don't you just want to eat her up!?  Literally!  Ha!  Congrats, Kelsey!

Aspen Tree Wedding Cake

What a FUN FUN wedding cake to make!  And the couple was just so adorable and sweet!  This cake was just a joy to make.  But, boy was it heavy!!!  It's a good thing I've been lifting weights!  
 How cute to put the initials on the cake!  LOVE IT!  (The bride's idea! All her decorations were so beautiful and perfect for an outdoor, cabin wedding!)
 Some of the knobs on the cake
 The leaves and twigs were one of my favorite parts.  Hand formed and painted with food coloring!

It's sometimes hard to be so busy with such big cakes, but when the bride is as sweet as this bride, and the idea is so fun, it's hard for me to not enjoy every second of the process!!!  Congrats, Callie!  You're beautiful, inside and out!!

Cute Little Owl Cake Toppers

The big one is a Cocoa Pebbles treat, and the small one is just modeling chocolate.  Pair them up with fondant flowers and you're ready to make an adorable cake!!!

And here's the final product with my customer's awesome skills of her own!  Great job, Andrea!!!

Hot pink, black and white Barbie birthday cake

A classy Barbie cake for a very lucky little girl!  Her party was the kind of party I want for ME,...right now!  At my age!  Well, we can always dream, right?!  I love this color combo and the way it all came together.  Girly cakes always make me enjoy it just a little bit more.

 Doesn't Barbie look happy, sitting on top of a giant cake?!

Cute little bow and tiny roses.  SOOOO fun, and girly!   My daughter just kept asking for pink fondant.  Silly girl!!
