OK-this post gets me caught up!  Being able to import pictures from picasa really makes this easier, so I should stay caught up!

I happened to have orders 2 weekends in a row with pirate themed parties.  The first one was a Jake and the Neverland Pirates theme:


The second one had a "pirates and pixies" theme and was for 2 birthdays:

Thanks for looking!

Birthday parties for grown-ups

I don't do many birthday cakes for adult birthday parties, so when I do I really enjoy doing them!

The next 5 pictures were for an 80th birthday party for an avid boater.  I was given pictures of past boats and logos for past and present boat/yacht clubs.  The bottom tier has the 4 boats an dthe top tier has the club logos.  The flag on top contained a special message from the guest of honor's grandchildren.

 This was for a combination 36th birthday and college graduation:

This was was probably my most challenging cake to date.  The topper is the sign language sign for "OK".  I made the hand out of rice krispy treats and covered it in modeling chocolate.

For 3 birthdays that happened in the winter:


Birthdays, birthdays and more birthdays!

I do a lot of birthday cakes for kids' birthday parties.  They range from fun to elegant and everything in between.  It is fun to see all of the different themes that people come up with!


The next 2 cakes have an aquarium/sea theme.  The 1st cake on was for a party at the Houston Aquarium.  The mermaid cake has the smash cake as the "top tier".

 For 1st birthdays I will include a smash cake if it is requested.  Main cake shown below with the smash cake.


Baby Showers....

I tend to do a lot of baby shower cakes.  I think it just has to do with where my friends/their friends are in life!

This was a cake for a western-themed baby shower.  This one was a lot of fun to do.  The boots were make out of gumpaste and all of the stitching was hand-painted. 


This cake matched the invitation.  The dots were individually cut out and placed on the band around the cake.  The bow was made out of gum paste.

This was for a nautical-themed baby shower.

The stripes, damask pattern and dots of this cake matched the baby's bedding:
The cake below was also based on fabric from the baby's nursery.  The fabric is shown below the cake:
