A rock to celebrate a rock... {Rock Climbing Cake}

So, Wendy's brother just got engaged... and since Wendy is turning into one of my most faithful cake clients, what does she do? Order the cutest cake ever to help them celebrate! Both Frank and Karoline are into rock climbing, so I did my best to recreate one of their fun outings. I have to say my most FAVORITE part of this cake is the super cute little blue bird and nest perched above the pair, just taking it all in. (This was Chris' idea -- which officially moves him to the top of the list for cake designers when I start hiring -- haha. Actually he and the girls even made the twig, eggs, and bird. Here's a close up of the cuteness...)

You're Never to Young... {Spa Party Makeup Bag Cake}

... to learn that spa parties are a GOOD thing!! So, one of our BEST friends turns 6 this week, and is leaving the land of little girls to have an oh so fun big girl spa party! I mean, makeup is fun whatever your age... but this stuff is even better since it's edible!! (I'll have to ask my 3 yr old, Hannah, if this lipstick tastes as good as Mommie's... we haven't had an "eat the whole tube" episode... but I have noticed my prettier shades wearing down a little faster, and messier, than in years past!)

Happy Birthday, Ava!!

Cupcakes {Autumn Theme Cupcakes}

I'm headed to the mountains tomorrow for a church retreat this weekend, and was asked to help with the goodie bags that will be waiting in the rooms... I mean, what better way to cap off a roadtrip than with a little sweet surprise upon arrival!! If only I could figure out how to transport little glasses of milk :)

Oh so girlie! {Pink Polka Dot and Orange Flower Cake}

Little Lucy is turning one this week. Her mommie Eugenia said "I don't know, I just want it to be really girlie... maybe oranges and pinks, dots and flowers?" When I finished this cake tonight, Leah (my 4 year old) said, "oh mommie, it is just DARLING and sooooo cute." Since Leah is about as girlie as you can get, I'll consider this one a success!! Happy Birthday, Lucy!
