Wedding Bliss

My Sister's Wedding
It's true. I have come out of retirement. FOR ONE DAY ONLY. :) My sister is getting married October 7th and I had the pleasure of making her cake and the groom's cake. The wedding cake is white cake with buttercream icing and the top tier is cinnamon swirl with buttercream. The groom's cake is cinnamon swirl with buttercream as well. I was a little rusty and it took me a lot longer than normal to finish these babies. Now, the supplies are going back in the closet to rest some more. On a side note, I was sad to find out that the bakery store that I used to get my boxes and boards was out of business. I guess I haven't been there in almost 2 years. :(
Anyways, Congratulations Jacob and Emily. I wish you all the best.

Happy Anniversary

Thought I would update to show what the cake looked like once at the party with the poinsettia touches. Christmasy, right?

This is a 3 tiered cake especially for an anniversary party. The top and bottom tiers are pina colada with buttercream icing and pineapple/coconut filling. The middle tier is white cake with buttercream icing.

The wedding cake is finished

This is just an update of the wedding cake after putting the fresh red roses on the top. I just thought I'd add these so you could see the finished product.

Here Comes The Bride

Wedding Bells are Ringing...
This is a 4 tiered wedding cake for my cousin Stephanie. She is getting married 12/19/09. The top two tiers are chocolate cake with buttercream icing. The next one is pina collada with coconut and pineapple filling and buttercream icing. The last tier (bottom) is white cake with buttercream icing. The wedding is in Alamo, TN...and I was a nervous wreck driving with it from Memphis. It made it though. :)
Only 2 more cakes to go!!!

This was the top 2 tiers before transport. I had to travel with it in 2 pieces and put it together at the church.

Cute...just in time.

This is my new stamp for my cake boxes.
I got it just in stop making cakes. Yes, that's right. I am going to be taking a long awaited break starting at the first of the year. I have 3, count them, 3 cakes left to fill. I plan on taking off for a year or two, at least until Holden can cooperate while I am in the kitchen. I will let everyone know when I am back in the swing of things (some wish sooner than later :) ) Until then, enjoy the last 3 posts of the year and I will see you some time in the future. :)

There's A Party In My Tummy

My baby boy is turning 2!!!

This is a 3 layer white cake with buttercream icing/filling and marshmallow fondant embellishments. This is taken from the Party In My Tummy song from Nick Jr.'s Yo Gabba Gabba. Holden is a big Gabba fan. His favorite character is Brobee which is coincidently who he dressed as for Halloween.

Holden turns 2 on Friday the 20th.

Holden as "Brobee" for Halloween

This is Holden and his grandmother "Memom" as he likes to call her. This is his birthday gift from her. I think he really likes it.

This was Holden getting his first hair cut on Tuesday (11/17/09). What a big boy. Isn't he handsome?
