They Say It's Your Birthday!

What a fun theme for a 1st birthday...The Beatles! My friend Amber's son Oliver turned 1 and she wanted a Beatles themed cake. She gave me some ideas and we came up with the cake below. The drum is made out of gumpaste and fondant. The letters on the cakes were cut with the Cricut.
One of the layers was strawberry for Strawberry Fields!

The cake below was for a 30th birthday party. The party had a baseball theme and the birthday boy is a Boston Red Sox fan. The baselines and pitcher's mound are brown sugar. The baseballs are molded white chocolate.

And of course, what kind of weekend would it be without a baby shower cake? =)
This cake was made to reflect the design and colors of the invitations. The monogram is the baby's initials.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

I am starting to think that the Houston Zoo does a lot of parties....

...because I sure seem to do a lot of zoo cakes! I made this cake for a 4th birthday party that was held at the zoo. The daughter of some friends of ours turned 4, so we enjoyed the party as well!
