firetruck cake and cute as a button cupcakes

I was asked to make a birthday cake last week that was inspired by little boys favorite book.  I believe the title of the book was fire cat.  The cat is yellow with black polka dots and lives in a fire station.  So this is my interpretation...

It was even cuter in person, simple yet colorful and a perfect match to the theme of the party. 

I also recently made some delicious strawberry- filled vanilla cupcakes for a friends baby shower.  All the buttons are modeling chocolate and were also, delicious.  I can say this cake was delicous because I atended the shower and got to indulge in these little beauties!  

Its been a fun month!  I have't been super busy but have enjoyed every second!

A football and weightlifting themed grooms cake

A while back I made this turkey cake as a surprise brithday present for a man whose birthday fell on Thanksgiving. 

I was contact again and asked to make a grooms cake for this couples wedding.  It turns out the groom loves all things football and weightlifting, so we had to figure out how to incorporate that into a cake.  Here's what I cam up with...

I really hope it helped make their special day a little more special!  Oh and carrot cake is this grooms favorite so thats what both of these cakes were, yum!
