I also just did a cake yesterday, it was a simple one that just said happy birthday on it. it was all chocolate and turned out good, the only thing bad about the evening was the weather. it was snowing and the wind was blowing very hard causing white outs in spots, but we made it to the destination and back home.

i decided today to update my website. my cake orders have slowed down some since its gotten colder. i dont think the weather has anything to do with it though. the cake below is a bday cake, i think it looks neat with it cut in the shape of the firetruck. P.S. everything i've put on this site today is backwards. the hello kitty cake is the most current and the firetruck cake is the oldest. sometimes i dont remember which way to put them on the site to put them in correct order, especially when i havent put them on in a while.
the girl that wanted this cake, had told me that she wanted a horse cake a good 6months before her bday. she new what she wanted way ahead of time, i thought that was great. i wasnt totally happy with the one cake with the horse silhouette's, sometimes my free hand isnt as good as i'd like it to be.
this cake was made for a baby shower for a little boy. the cake is white and some of the decorations on top are square cookies. i thought it would be neat, i was trying to make them look like blocks, sitting on top of the cake. i also made mints, i think they turned out well, it was the first time i had ever made them.
this was the last wedding cake that i knew i was going to be doing for this year. it is choc and white, and there was also 2 sheet cakes that were made for this wedding as well. the topper is a red candy S. it was the first time ive ever made candy successfully, i was very happy with the results. i had tried to make candy some months before and it didnt turn out. i think it is something ill try to do again. the whole day was nice for their wedding day, i think its nice when that happens.
the cakes below were really fun to do. the teeth cake is a chocolate cake covered in fondant. it was a different for someone to order a cake like this, but fun. the bowling ball cake below it was a task, i had never done a cake using the ball pan, it was quite an experience, especially when it came to decorate it.
