Tis the Season... {Cowboys Football Jersey Cake}

... of football that is! Fall is my favorite season - I LOVE almost everything about fall - the cool crisp weather that makes only the tip of my nose just a little chilly, being able to ride in the car with the windows down, being outside without getting sweaty instantly, cooking more winter-y comfort food dinners, wearing JEANS after a horribly hot summer - my list could go on forever. The one thing I DON'T like about fall - the entrance of football season - don't get me wrong, I like football itself and I could happily watch a game or so a week - what drives me CRAZY is all of the "extracurricular" events that happen when football arrives - fantasy drafts, fantasy leagues, Sportscenter on steroids, "Game Day," announcers running off stats about stats. Oh my. It's everywhere ALL THE TIME!

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...

Ariel Doll Cake {3D Ariel Cake}

Ariel all dressed up in her ball gown - she's decorated in 3 layers of fondant to create the petticoat look - sugar pearls were hand added to her underskirt - because really what girl doesn't like a little extra sparkle? I love how she turned out - hardly looks like a cake!

Xylophone {Toy Xylophone Cake}

Seems like every kid has one of these growing up.... and what a great theme for a kids party! (I am totally impressed by the creative moms in Charlotte!)

Sweet Peas {Pea Pod Twin Shower Cake}

I know you've heard the saying... like peas in a pod. What a cute way to welcome twin baby girls!

FBI {Family Moving Cake}

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!!

Pool Party {Pool Cake}

Ella is turning 2 this weekend and celebrating with a backyard pool party - she probably won't need an innertube in her inflatable pool and 3 inches of water - but I just couldn't resist!

Twin Cakes {Hello Kitty and Carolina Panther Smash Cakes}

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!!

King of the Jungle {3D Lion Cake with Smash}

This is one of those cake designs that I've been wanting to do for a while - so a big thanks to my friend Melissa for giving me a reason to make it!! Her little boy Andrew turns one this week - so the cute little lion is just for him!!

Good news and bad news...

The good news is that I've been overwhelmed by cake orders in September - which means that if you're one of my faithful blog followers, there are lots of fun posts coming up.

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!

At The Hop {1950s Theme Cake}

I have told Chris more than a few times that I was born in the wrong generation -- poodle skirts, mary janes, roller skates, soda shops, Elvis (in his younger years of course) -- oh man I would have LOVED growing up in the 50s! Lucky Candy - Happy Birthday!! (You can't see this very well in the pic, but there is a poodle painted on her skirt, she's wearing mary janes, AND she has a super cute bobbing ponytail.)
