Buttons and Booties {Baby Shower Buttons and Booties Cake}

Another baby shower cake, for a friend who is expecting #2. This was my first attempt at gumpaste booties, the bowties on them were almost as tricky to tie as on real baby booties!

And a pic with Leah posing... she insists on being in the picture EVERY time I make a cake! I guess she has a future in cake modeling... haha.

Make a wish {Tall Candle Cake}

The bigger the candle the bigger the wish must be?! This was my first super tall cake -- over a foot high! This candle cake is covered in fondant, and the "flame" and "candle wax" are gumpaste.

Dora, Dora, Dora The Explorer... {Dora Story Cake}

So, I got to make a cake this week for the daughter of some of my BIGGEST supporters (seriously, Eric Warren should quit his job in medicine and be my PR guy... he has my whole business figured out!). Cari & Eric's little girl Finley turns two this weekend, and she LOVES Dora. I love all the little details on this cake, lilly pads in the lake, white foamy water at the bottom of the rocky waterfall, crystals in the sand to make it look more "sandy..." I'm sure she'll have as much fun eating this cake as I had making it.
