camo cake, baby shower, and birthdays

A very lovely girl just entered the army.  For her going away party she wanted a camo princess theme.  She actually designed this cake and added a tiara to the top of it for her party.  I wish her luck and thank her and all the soldiers for their selflessness and service.

This baby shower cake was designed based on the nursery bedding.  The bedding is super cute with pink and peach colors and an elephant, zebra, hippo and koala.  I tried to match the animals and make a baby in a bassinet.  

 I had a birthday party at my house this past weekend.  A good friend of mine was turning 30 and I decided to throw her a pool party.  I always like to try to make something new or different.  I decided to make a swiss meringue buttercream cake and drizzle it with dark chocolate ganache.  It was super yummy- dark chocolate cake filled with a cookies and cream buttercream. 

These little presents were 4 inch mini cakes designed for twin girls.  The birthday girls each picked their design.  I though they were really cute birthday presents for the birthday girls.

some new stuff

So my laptop died.

I was sitting outside with the boys while they were swimming.  The dog was running around hyper and fell in the pool.  Then she shook and my laptop turned off . . .

and never again turned back on.  So its been a while since I have uploaded any pictures of my recent projects.

Here's what I have been up to:

A preschool graduation cake for a little girl.  She sent me a picture of a cake she liked and told me to run with it.  I took the idea of the paper and ruler from the picture she sent me and included the cap and the girls favorite color, pink.

My friends love cake balls.  They always request that I make them for our little playdates or celebrations.  I made these for a friends birthday.  I especially love the cupcake cake balls with a little touch of dark and white cholocate.  YUM!!!

This cake was completely designed by the honoree.  It was to celebrate her leaving to enter the army.  She went with a princess/camo theme and added a tiara to the top of the cake for her party.  I was a little nervous about it when I first saw the picture, but I really liked the way it came out in the end.
