Just a peek...

And another...

The finished product

Texas Hold 'Em {Poker Table Cake}

All right gentlemen - you know you've found a good bride when she orders you a poker theme for your groomscake!! The extra fun part of this cake is it's a real game to play out - the bride and groom each picked a hand - then someone finished the flop to see who won. The winning card is appropriately, the Ace of Hearts!

Climb Every Mountain... {Mountain Climbers Cake}

Just when I thought I was getting tired of making little figurines - I got to make these cute little guys this week. Anna and Ken are getting married this weekend, and Anna ordered this cute mountain climbing cake for Ken's groomscake. (Look close, he's climbing up the mountain with a flower in his hand for her - cute cute!)

Old School {Sprinkled Cupcakes}

Sometimes revisiting the old school version of a cupcake is the best thing ever... who can complain about sprinkles and frosting anyway?? (I did do a little twist though, and layered these sweet babies, so there is frosting for every single little bite! YUMMM!!)

Monkey Mania {Monkey Cupcakes and Smash Cakes}

I'm starting to realize that I need to take a class in photography - it's getting harder to capture the cuteness on film! This order was for 50 cupcakes and 2 smash cakes for a joint birthday party for 3 year olds Lucy Grace and Gavin. Couldn't get all the cupcakes in a pic, but ohhh it was cute to see them all sitting on the counter! (You have to look closely to see the cute little monkey noses and mouths.)

Old MacDonald... {3D Barn Cake with Farm Animal Cupcakes}

I am in LOVE with this cake - yes, I confess the squealing you might have heard coming from my kitchen was not from my 3 year old - I ADORE these little farm animal cupcakes (I kept peeking after I finished, I couldn't help myself). The picture just doesn't even do them justice. I think the little piggy snouts are my favorite. Soooo cute!! Little Eloise loves the song Old MacDonald, so for her 1st birthday, she gets the whole barn all to herself to enjoy (aka. destroy).

And here's a closeup of the cuties -- oh my -- really too cute to eat!!

Graduation Buddies {Crew and Baseball Sport Cake}

Jackson and Alex are high school best buddies, graduating this year, and heading off to opposite coasts for college in the fall. One to play baseball the other to row... my favorite thing about this cake, other than that it celebrates their great friendship, is the baseball hat and the tiny little baseball (if you look closely, you can see I painted on the red stitching... love it!!!)
