A Cake for the Quilters

July 25, 2009

My great aunt Carolyn and my Mom quilt with some ladies in Hickory. They planned a birthday outing for Saturday night. Tammie, my Mom-Jamie, and Hilda all have July and August birthdays. So my aunt decided to get a cake for all of them. Since they quilt I thought I would use that as the theme.

I found a really cute cake online using Marshmallow fondant. But I chose not to use it this time because I knew my mom didn't like fondant. I made a plain butter cream instead. I still think it turned out really cute.

McKinley's Barbie Cake

July 11, 2009

McKinley turned 4 and was very specific about what she wanted for a birthday cake. She said she wanted pink and blue because they were her favorite colors. She even told me she wanted her Barbie to be blond. I like my cakes to be as personal as possible so I try not to make the "same" cake twice.

Picture to follow soon!

"Little Miss" Heather's Birthday!

July 7, 2009

Heather is a child of the 80's, like me. She was crazy about the "little Miss and Little Mister" books when she was growing up. So at the request of her mother I made her a Little Miss Chatterbox birthday cake. She did get an upgrade to a cell phone. She is covered in marshmallow fondant with a butter cream filling. I am really enjoying making "vintage 80s" cartoon cakes. I'd love to make some of my favorite cartoon cakes so day.
