Hooray for Birthday!

I have been making cakes for over a year, but I've only just now started my blog. So I thought I would post some of the pictures of the cakes that I've done. I think it is so much fun to try new techniques. I am always excited when someone has a birthday coming up. I get to make something new and delicious!

August 2008
My family has a lot of August birthday, so they kept me busy. I got of lot of practice making flowers.

Jennifer's Cake

Jennifer is my assistant. It's her first year at Claremont and her birthday was the first week of school. So I wanted to do something to make it special for her.

Maria Turns 40!

My coworker, Maria turned 40 so I wanted to do something special. I am not one for the traditional black cakes or "over the hill" motifs.

Papaw Turns 80!
My Papaw George turned 80 and my Mom asked me to do the cake! I was really nervous, but we were all pleased with how it turned out. I even sculpted a white chocolate figure of him in a boat to go on top.

Zachery's Firetruck Cake
I used a transfer truck cake pan to make this cake. I cut and moved the wheels and free handed the design. I was pleased with how it turned out. Zach's a 5th grader, so I didn't want it to look to "kiddie

Ashley's Birthday Cupcakes

My coworker, Ashley is a December baby like me. So I decided to make her cupcakes for her birthday. She loves snowmen, and I had just bought a cupcake book. They dumped over in my car on the way to school, but luckily I took pictures before I left the house.

Vanessa's 50th Birthday

Vanessa aka Nay-Nay is Maria's sister. Maria was so impressed with her 40th cake, she asked me to make one for her sister's 50th birthday. I told her I would use the "red hat" colors since she was 50.

Darcy's Princess Cake

My niece, Darcy turned 3 in Janunary. She wanted a princess cake. She was worried when I went to cut it. She thought I would hurt the Barbie. But after I took the Barbie out of the middle, she lost interest in the cake. Well what can I say? She's 3, who would blame her?
