And Baby Makes Five!! {Gender Reveal Cake}

My sweet friend, Lisa, is expecting her third child this summer. With two adorable little girls already at home, the gender reveal of baby #3 was going to be a pretty big deal. I was super excited she asked me to be in on the surprise - thankfully I only had to keep the secret for a few hours, pretty sure I couldn't have made it longer. It's so much harder to do these reveal cakes for friends - but oh so much fun!!
.... BOY!!!!! Here's Lisa's shot of the inside:

Favorite Things {3D Fondant Man Cake}

What to do when you can't decide on one theme for your hubbies party cake?? Do a cake with all his "favorite things." In this case - golf, surfing, acoustic guitar, and bowties! I love how the fondant man turned out with his cute little polkadot bowtie!

Hard Hat Required {Construction Cake}

Lately I've been sketching out my cake designs - to help me keep track of details. It's always fun to see the original sketch...

Next to the final design!!

I adore everything about this cake. Especially the construction signs and cones. This cake is all edible except the CAT construction vehicles, which will do double duty as toys for the birthday boy after he blows out the candles!!

Spy Kids {Spy Birthday Cake}

Our friend Sophie turned 6 in February -- and I love the theme of her party this year! A spy party - with inspiration from "Spy Kids" the movie. So, here's "Sophie" dressed up and ready to solve the birthday mystery!

Snakes and Snails {Baby Boy Shower Cake}

You know how the nursery rhyme goes.... "snakes and snails and puppy dog tails... that's what little boys are made of!" A perfect theme for a boy baby shower!! I snapped a picture of the cake with the invitation - a perfect color match (harder than it looks!) The snail is my favorite on this one!
