Ryder's 2nd Birthday

Ryder decided he wanted a Scooby Doo birthday party. I used a scooby pan. My friend Regina helped with the purple because we were in a hurry to get this finished.

Shelby's 5th Birthday

I was very pleased at how Shelby's birthday cake turned out. I used wedding cake items to make tiers. It was a big hit at her party.

Birthday cake

I like this cake. I made it for a friend's little boy who has red hair and loves soccer!

Army Cakes

I made these too cakes for a Army Family Day picnic. Both turned out really well. I had only planned to make one cake but I had enough icing to make two and the recruiting colors are the same as an American flag.

Ryder's 1st Birthday

This is my son's first birthday cake. I used a sheet pan and then cut the shape out free hand. I think it turned out pretty cute. He sure had fun diving into it too.

Wedding Cake and Groom's Cake

I was asked to make a wedding cake for a family wedding. I let them know in advance that I'd never made one before but I felt I could pull it off. I had to make this cake overnight once we traveled 7 hours to get to the wedding. I did make the roses ahead of time and stored them in pizza boxes so they would transport easily. I got lots of compliments on both cakes.

A picture of me adding the top layer to the cake. It was to heavy to transport from the location I baked it to the reception site so I had to do some work to it last minute.
I was asked to make a rebel cake and this how it turned out. It was strawberry cake inside and everyone was very pleased. I have to admit it was fun doing a wedding!

SHelby's 3rd Birthday Cake

Shelby wanted a Princess party for her 3rd birthday. This was a barbie pan that I used to turn into a princess. My mom helped add the curls to the hair (I always try to give credit where its due).

American Flag

I made this cake for a military event where cakes were auctioned. My cake sold for over $400 dollars, but the soliders were probably more excited about the four day pass hidden underneath it more than the actual cake, haha.

Various birthday cakes

A carebear cake for a little girl who was turning 3. She was very pleased with this sunshine bear cake.
This cake I made for a very dear friend of mine on her birthday. She was very surprised. I was glad I could do a little extra for my friend on her special day.
I made this cake for a co-worker and brought it to her at work. She was also suprised.
This cake was also made for a coworker that was made very last minute with a few pans I threw together to get this two layered cake.

Shelby's 2nd Birthday

Shelby's second birthday was a very important event. Her daddy missed her first birthday because he was in Iraq so I wanted her second party to be special. I put my new cake making skills to work and made her a butterfly birthday party to remember!

One of my first cakes

I took a cake decorating class when we moved to Fort Knox because I wanted to be able to make my children's birthday cakes look like more than a cake with store bought icing on top. This cake use made to practice techniques. By the end Wilton's cakes part 2 I was tired of eating cake!
