Happy 7th Birthday Mario Cake for Bennett

When delivering the Lipstick and Lollipop cake, one of the guests asked if I could make a Mario Cake for her son's birthday party that next Friday.  It was last minute, but had no problem getting it done.  She had the figures for the cake and sent pictures with it all put together.  Thank you Carrie for the great pictures.  She told me - "The cake was a hit!!!  He said it was the best cake he's ever had.  He figured out exactly where to put the figures."  So glad I was able to help.

Under the Sea Cake for my friends in Cabo

I have been working for my current company for over 8 years now and we have offices in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  A few of them follow me on Facebook and have been wanting me to make them a cake for years.  Problem was how would I get it there.  Problem solved - the owner of my company was going to Cabo and I asked if I could send a cake with him on the flight.  I made this Beach themed cake since our property and offices are on the beach.  Cake made it in one piece and they were all very suprised.  They loved it so much they raffled off all the fondant pieces so they could all have some to keep.  So glad I finally was able to get one there.

Lipstick, Lollipops and Roller Skates Birthday Cake

I was asked to make a cake for a customer's two daughter's birthday party again this year.  They were having a "girly" party at a Skating Rink and wanted a three tiered Lipstick, Lollipops and roller skates incorporated on the cake!  Girls were very happy and everyone ate the whole thing.  Happy Birthday to Madison and Lauren!

Roger's 50th Birthday "Hobby" Cake

I was asked to make a cake for a return client's customer for his 50th Birthday.  They wanted a lot of his hobbies on his cake, including fishing, hunting, poker, boating, wake boarding, smoking cigars, enjoying wine and cheese, golfing and is the head of the chicken events at the HLSR.  He also drives a Harley Davidson that was the top centerpiece of the cake.  The wife loved the cake and this one was one of my favorite cakes once all put together.  Thanks to my parents - Dad the drive and Mom the assistant designer for their help with this delivery as a VW Beetle wasn't big enough for this cake to fit.

Matalyn's 3rd Birthday Cake
