Birthdays, Showers and Weddings, oh my!

Can you believe we are more than halfway through July already? I certainly can't! Summer is flying by! This post has the cakes I have done since the end of May. Lots of birthdays, showers (wedding and baby) and my first wedding cake! Enjoy!

This cake was for a 5th birthday. The birthday girl is a big fan of "Tangled", especially the character Pascal. The birthday girl's mom found a figurine of Rapunzel to put on top of the cake, but she couldn't find a Pascal. I made the Pascal character out of fondant. The second picture is terrible, but you can see Rapunzel holding her hair and then her hair wrapping all around the cake.

This cake was made for a friend's daughter's 11th birthday. The party was a "Dr. Who" theme, so I made a Tardis cake.

This cake was for a birthday party for 3 sisters celebrating their birthdays. They like Toms shoes, so the colors and design reflect the blue and white stripes of the Toms logo.

On to the showers....this cake was for a friend's baby shower. The shower had an owl theme, so the cake was made to match the invitations and other decorations. You can see the invitation in the second picture.

This cake was for a wedding shower. I was also fortunate enough to do the wedding of that are below! The colors of the wedding were black and white with accents of chartruese. The design of this cake was done by the 3 birthday girls who had the Toms-inspired cake above!

This is the wedding cake for the same bride as the shower cake above. It is hard to see the detail, even in the close up, but the black part are fondant that was pressed into a lace mold. The detail was pretty intricate. I then hand-painted black lustre onto the lace molds.

And finally...this "cake" is cupcakes arranged together and then decorated with a jungle theme. This was actually from over a year ago, but I just realized that I never posted the picture!

Thanks for looking!!
