Brittany hired me to do her very large and very purple wedding cake (Pictures coming soon) and later realized that I did flowers as well. She hired me to do her bouquet as well as 4 of her attendants and 8 boutonierres. I delivered them today at noon and I will be delivering her cake in a couple of hours. I really love flowers and I am so happy that they chose me to be a part of their special day.
WOW!! This week was a killer in the kitchen. I had a two tiered pirate cake due one Tuesday, a two tiered birthday cake on Friday, An Air Jordan birthday cake with a matching Smash cake Saturday, a two tiered Hello Kitty cake with 2 dozen matching cupcakes, three dozen baby boy baby shower cupcakes, a 3 tiered large wedding cake, 5 bouquets and 8 boutonierres today. Yeah, CRAZY. I am sitting here and everything as been delivered or picked up but the wedding cake. Needless to say I am a little tired, but I am afraid of oversleeping for delivery ;) Stay tuned for PICTURES AND MORE PICTURES :)

WoW!! A few month ago Sharon Jackson, an event coordinator, contacted me off of one of my online ads. She was coordinating a gala for the Clovis Botanical Garden's 2012 Gala. The committee was interested in 20 cakes to be used for centerpieces and for a cake buffet. I was of course overwhelmed at the thought, but I am also always ready for a challenge. From the 20 pounds of scratch fondant, to the fresh raspberry butter cream and gooey cookies and cream butter cream, these cakes turned out fab! Yes, I was (and still am) exhausted, but it was all worth it when I got an email from Sharon on Sunday saying not only were the cakes delicious and beautiful, but that they added 5 of them to the silent auction. All 5 of my cakes were purchased and they made money for this fabulous Garden. Please check them out at www.clovisbotanicalgarden.com.
Our photographer Michelle (check her our at shebreathestudio.com)ordered these fun cupcakes for her twin sister's baby shower. Her sister Teresa is expecting a baby girl soon and I love that they chose something non traditional for the shower. I made 4 dozen chocolate cupcakes with homemade chocolate ganache filling and made from scratch cookies and cream frosting. YUMMM!!!!

Janet, a church friend wanted to order something special for her father. It was his 80th birthday and he had recently been diagnosed with alzheimer's. She wanted him to have a memorable birthday with his loved ones. He had retired from the Air Force many years ago, so it was fitting for her to order this for him. Very simple. It's all about the memories!
This order came from a client who saw my online ad. She called on Saturday and wanted her cake for today. I am always a little hesitant when I don't give myself enough time to really plan everything out, but HELLO, I am the mom of two little boys who ADORE all things Spiderman. I am practically a PRO. SO here it is. I really got inspiration from old Spiderman comics..... like ones from the 60's and 70's. LOVED it and I hope that little Sergio did as well.
