London's 1st Birthday Lady Bug Cake

I finally got an order for a Lady Bug cake. As most of my friends and family know how much I love Lady Bugs! Turned out great and it was a perfect cake for a Halloween Birthday party.

Client Comment -
Hi Stephanie,

I'm really sorry this is over a month past due...I've hardly had a chance to be on the computer and just now uploaded my pictures from the party. You did a FABULOUS job on London's cake and we received compliment after compliment on it. It was also very tasty!
Unfortunately, London was too distracted by everyone watching her and didn't make a mess with the smash cake. I attached some pictures I have of the Ladybug. Thanks you again!!

40th Birthday Cake for my Brother

My Brother turned 40 on July 9 and had a big birthday celebration! I asked him if I could make his cake and he of course said "aren't you always going to make our cakes from now on?" So I decided to make a memory cake with pictures from his childhood. White and Chocolate Cake with a white buttercream frosting. I trimmed them in Creme Brulee and Amaretto Cordial Candy's! Everyone enjoyed! Thank you to my sister (Heidi Olson) for the picture as I haven't had a chance to upload mine yet!

I was asked by my brother's friend to make her son's 3rd Birthday cake. They were at my nieces birthday party and I asked the birthday boy himself what he wanted. He liked Fire Trucks, so I found this pattern and decided to make flames on the side. The flames are in red, orange and yellow. They were all very happy and no cake was left.
