Jaymee's 5th bday (2011)

This cake was originally supposed to be Little Mermaid/Ariel themed...but for whatever reason, I had the HARDEST time finding Little Mermaid ANYTHING to put on the cake, so this is what we came up with...I was pleasantly surprised at the end result....AND it was SUPER fast to pull together!! The bday girl was so excited and happy, and that's all that counts....

This is for my co-workers for V-day 2011...I had not made a cake in quite some time...quite pleased the way that it came out...I look forward to making more cakes next week!!!

Melting Snowmen Cookies 2009

I LOVE these cookies!! I've only made them once, but they are DEFINITELY FUN to make!! Not very hard to do either!! FUN, FUN, FUN!! And they don't last long, YUMMY!!!

Pastor Appreciation 2010

My first attempt at an open book cake...pretty impressed with myself!! I love that it has the 'old rugged look'! Cake is fondant with the verse as an edible image.

First baby shower cake 2009

This was my first attempt at a baby shower cake! I LOVE the way it came out...I had BIG IDEAS for a baby rump cake...but this turned out WAY better than I expected, even better than my original idea...cake and blanker are fondant...all other items are the real deal...lagniappe for the baby! ☺

Joint Bride and Groom Shower 2009

I was really excited to do these cakes...and very relieved when the customer came to pick them up!! At first when I was asked to do these cakes, I was a little intimidated because they were to be done at the same time and that was the first time that I had to do (2) cakes in one order! So, HUGE thanks to my hubby who helped me out TREMENDOUSLY by listening to every idea that I came up with, going shopping with me for ribbon (that was a little stressful! but that's a whole 'nother story!! LOL) and most of all, helping me to assemble and deliver these cakes!!

Hummingbird frozen buttercream transfer 2009

Sorry for the picture quality! I gotta get a better camera!! This cake was pretty easy to do, despite having to do that blasted frozen buttercream transfer THREE times before it FINALLY worked!! It was my first time trying this technique out, so I think I did a pretty decent job considering! As for the rest of the cake, very easy and simple to do...I hope the bday girl likes it!!

Swamp Gator Alphonse 2009

This was my first attempt at carving a 3-D cake...and can I tell you how FUN it was?! I had the privilege of taking a class with Sharon Zambito and Dena Bryngelson; they are FANTASTIC teachers and a HOOT to be around!! This was my completed swamp scene - my favorite part was the tree stump!! All edible, except for the sticks in the cattails and the gator's mouth was cardboard....  
This was part of the process of carving and assembling the gator and the rest of the scene:
