Flower Drops {Cream and Beige Anniversary Cake}

I've been wanting to do this design for awhile. I love that it's so planned and yet random with the lengths of the flower drops. I think this cake would be great in a lot of different color schemes.

Cocktails anyone? {Martini Glass Cake}

I've just recently discovered modeling chocolate - which is so much more fun to play with than fondant... I had so much fun making this girl relaxing in a martini glass. My favorite part is her little pearl necklace!

The Giving Tree {Shel Silverstein "Giving Tree" Cake}

Charis turns one this weekend - and her mom picked "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein as the theme. Okay - first, I haven't read that book in YEARS, and second, it almost brought me to tears reading it to my girls during my "design research time" last week. What a great book! Definitely will be adding it to our library on our next trip to the book store!

PS. This cake was so hard to capture in a picture since it was soooo tall (over 12 inches!) so, if you can't tell - the cute little heart inscription is Charis' initials "C.R.P." - and the little smash cupcake is just for her! I always love the little details!

Updated: Holiday Cake Calendar & Cake Truffles

Nov and Dec are filling up quickly! Hopefully you're on my calendar already if you're wanting a cake before the end of the year. If you're still planning -- the only weekends I have left for orders in Nov/Dec are Nov 19th, Dec 11th, Dec 18th.

If you're not in the market for a big cake -- consider cake truffles for a great little gift (perfect for teachers, neighbors, and hostess gifts for all those holiday parties).

UPDATE: Busy Busy!! Only room to schedule one more cake in 2010 - if you need one around December 18th let me know!
