A Mini Vacation for Me!!

I know, I know, I've been MIA for a while. But for a really good reason... I decided to take a break and enjoy life for almost a month without a constantly sugar covered kitchen. Glorious!!

But, I did miss all of the creative fun... so back comes the sugar! But only a bit... pulled out my pans tonight to start on a cake for this weekend, and then only two cakes in December (with a handful of fun truffle boxes for hostess gifts). I'll get back into the swing of things nice and slow :)

In the meantime, here are some of the last things I worked on in October... enjoy... and happy holidays!!

Oh the bow!! {Minnie cake}

This cake was for one of my favorite three year olds in Charlotte... my friend Amy's sweet little girl, Charis. Charis chose her very own cake this year, and this is what she chose... right down to the giant red and white polka dot bow. Gotta admit, that giant bow is pretty fantastic!
 

Last Princess Standing {Tiana Doll Cake}

Over the years I'm pretty sure I've done a doll cake for every Disney princess... with one exception... the new girl on the block, Tiana! So I was super excited to get this order back in October for a Tiana cake. Her dress is layers of fondant, handpainted with silver dust... love how she turned out!!
 

Something Simple

A simple cake to celebrate a sweet friend who's birthday was at the beginning of November... would you believe me if I told you the simple cakes sometimes are as fun to make as the non-simple ones?!
