(PS. This is one of those cakes that looked better on the counter than in the photo, but you get the idea... and it's just more inspiration for me to learn how to use all the settings on my fancy camera... one day!!!)

However, my passion for cakes overrides my "non-passion" for football season. And thankfully I can get happy about football cakes :) This is my second already of the season, and I'm expecting these little football cakes will start becoming repeat orders...

This cake is for a family moving out of town for a new job with the FBI. Seems simple enough now that I look at it all done - but believe it or not, it took awhile for me to come up with a look to incorporate everything. The little kids are my absolute favorite I've made... sooo cute!!
Two mini cakes for Addie and Ty to celebrate turning 5. They do have to share the same birthdate - but they definitely don't have to share cakes!!

The bad news is that since I've been overwhelmed by cake orders in September, my calendar is full and I won't be taking any more orders for the month. :( Hopefully everyone who wanted a cake is already on my books!! Plenty of spaces in October and November though - so let me know if you have any celebrations coming up!

I'm constantly coming across cute cake pics - some I search endlessly for, some are magazine clippings from doc offices, and sometimes I get them from virtual strangers who know I'm in the cake business.
This new page is a collection of a few of these "ideas" that I hold onto because they're cute, unique, clever, or just something that I want to do one day.
So - take a look - and let me know if you're ever in the market for the chicken cake. The girls and I think it's HYSTERICAL!

This cake is all edible with the exception of the doll (thank you to McD's for having Strawberry Shortcake Happy Meals a few years ago!)

A Cake Statistic Game --
So, the biggest cake I've done so far was the black and white wedding cake this June:
Here's the game - post a comment with your guesses for the stats below, the closest in each category wins a delicious sampling of cake truffles!! (Non-Charlotte folks, don't be shy - not sure how the truffles will travel by mail, but I'm willing to give it a try!) Post by next Tues, July 27th.
What you need to know - this cake served 215. It measured 20 inches tall. And weighed over 35 lbs (not including the stand). Happy Guessing:
- How many large eggs were used?
- How many sticks of butter (FYI, 1 stick = 1/2 cup)?
- How many lbs of powdered sugar to make the frosting?
