Tiara on a pillow. Another cake.

Happy Birthday to my sweet niece, Amy! She wanted this very special pillow cake with a tiara on top. I made the tiara out of white chocolate and added some edible pearls for decoration. The pillow is a 10" square chocolate cake carved into a pillow shape and covered in fondant. I made the tassles using Coleman's new Playdoh Fun Factory that he got for Christmas. LOL! The best part- everything is edible! Should be a hit!

Cooper's a ham!

Cooper did this over and over and over! As soon as we'd start clapping his eyes would light up. He'd get his left arm swinging and his legs would go crazy! Too cute! P.S. This little diddy also seems to go over extremely well at parties. He loves the attention!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Wow! What a year it's been! Can't believe I'm 29 already! Just one more year until 30! I've decided that I'm going to make 29 the new 21! It's going to be the best year yet! Just wait and see!

And yes, I made my own cake. Check it out!

Christmas party.

Last night, we went to our church Christmas party. It was actually really nice. The decorations were pretty, the lights were dim and it was a catered event. Usually our church parties are potluck so this was a nice change. It was adults only so they had onsite babysitters. Hallelujah! We sat at a table with 3 other couples (all friends of ours) and had a really nice meal that I didn't have to cook. :) We were asked to bring a dessert so, of course, I made a cake. Well, after dinner we played an, um, nicer version of the newlywed game and Will and I were asked to participate. We are always up for embarassing each other so we raced up to our spots in front. And boy did we try our hardest to embarass each other! All the other couples were so nice to each other. That's no fun! Anyway, after the party everybody kept telling us how funny we were. It was such a blast! Will really turns it on when people are watching. He's shameless!

Spaghetti and meatballs, anyone?

We had a potluck after aerobics today and since I'm the cake lady, of course I brought a cake...or is it? No really, it is a cake! This was so fun to make. I baked a 10" round chocolate cake and carved away the top edge so that I just had a big mound of cake. I covered it in piped icing noodles and added chocolate covered cake truffle "meatballs". The sauce is strawberry jam that I thinned out and poured over top. I think some people thought it was really spaghetti and meatballs at first glance. Too funny!

Oh, and I made a possible business connection, too. Our yoga instructor is also a wedding photographer and she says they are looking to work with a cake decorator. This could be a great opportunity for me. Although I haven't done wedding cakes before, I feel confident I could do it if given the opportunity. I think I will take the Wilton courses first and then try to work something out with her.
