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.
My niece Matalyn has been waiting forever (according to her) for her Birthday. We had been looking for months for the perfect "princess" castle cake for her. She loves them all and loves pink. So I decided to do a combo of princesses on her cake. She feel in love the minute I walked in the door. She loved the walkway and the door on the front of the castle. Can't wait to see what she wants next year.
My Nephew Nick graduated this year and is on his way to Parkland College to play baseball. He isn't a sweet eater but I made these for him and his buddies to enjoy. I packed them up and carried them from Houston to Cincinnati without one broken cookie! His brother Jacob loved them so much that he probably eat most of them. Now I know how to transport cookes, my next goal is to pack and ship.
A co-worker of mine asked me to make some Paint Ball Cupcakes for her son's 13th Birthday party. They gave me big thanks when they saw them and then again the next time they were in the office. They told me they were the best cupcakes ever! Always makes my day.
I found this great picture of a "Bunny Butt" cake online. I sent to my very good client and ended up making 4 cakes for clients at Easter this year. I embelished with raisins to look like bunny poop! My niece loved that part when I showed her the pictures!
The mother of baby Joy asked me to make her mother in laws wedding cake for a small family wedding. She based the colors on the Layla birthday cake. They added fresh flowers to the top, but I added a gerber daisy for the picture and it turned out well. She loved the cake.
My friend asked me to make a baby shower cake for her very good friend. Little did she know that friend had her baby 2 month's early. Baby Joy and Mom are doing well and happy and healthy. Shower still went on as planned.
I had a request for another 2012 Graduation Cake. They were having a combo Graduation Party for their Daughter Kelsey and nephew Andrew. I did both and they were very happy with the outcome. Excited that it was all edible.
