Hippie Chick Cake

This one was so much fun!  It was for a former student of mine.  I taught her in Kindergarten...and she turned 14.  Now that was an I'm-really-really-old moment.

Her party theme was Hippie Chick by Party City

She liked the brown and especially the owl.  
So I made sure he was right on top.
What a little cutie!

I had to include the butterfly

So much fun to make!

Mod Mom Baby Shower Cake

This cake was made from the Mod Mom Baby Shower party supplies.  This mama was at the the Farm Animal Baby Shower.  She loved the farm animal cake and wanted me to make one for her.  She actually sent me a picture of what she wanted, but she didn't need it to be quite so big. 

Cake by the fabulous Sugarshack on Cake Central

I made a few changes since this was only my 2nd cake to do.  I am not quite as good as Sugarshack yet. 

Close ups of the flowers

My favorite part to do with the mama-to-be.
She was fun!

Farm Animal Baby Shower

After the girl's party, I hung up my cake baking hat for awhile.  I knew I was going to make a cake for a friend, but it wasn't until the Spring.

In January, my neighbor asked me to do her daughter's baby shower cake.  It was going to be Farm Animal theme, so she knew she wanted me to do it.  So I did...

And I loved it again.

I told Gary, my hubby, I could do this for a living and love it!

So it begins...

It all started with my twin girl's 2nd birthday.  It was to be a farm theme and I was planning their cupcakes and cakes.  As I priced cupcakes out there, I was pretty horrified at the price of plain, but I am sure very good, cupcakes.  Eeek!  So I went on a search of Farm Animal cupcakes on-line and found a wealth of ideas and instructions.  As I looked at the Fondant Animals sitting on top of some of the cakes, I said to myself, "I can do that."  So I did...and I LOVED it.

The cake is actually only the green part.
All the animals, signs, hay, and water are Fondant

The cupcake toppers
(The ladybugs were given to me by a friend)

The whole spread

This little guy was my favorite.
I may have fallen a little in love with him.

I still have him
I can't not have him
