Old Fart Cake

Yes, its a cake of a bottom. It was made for a man my husband works with and all the guy workers wanted a funny cake. It's a cake that is suppose to look like a "plumber's bottom" cake. Its not my best work but I wanted to post it anyway. It turned out cute anyway I think so I wanted to share it.

LSU Birthday cake

So what do you do when your hubby calls you and asks if you can make a cake for someone? Well I made he cake, ha ha. I knew this man liked football and was turning 30 so this is what I came up with. He was pleased and I was glad I could make his birthday a little bit special.

I only put the 30's on the cake instead of all the field numbers b/c this guy was turning 30 so I thought it looked better this way. It tasted pretty good too!

Grooms cake

My youngest cousin Brittany got married this July and asked if I'd make the grooms cake. I agreed and since David likes chess that is what I made. I think it turned out pretty good. It was chocolate cake with white chocolate and cream cheese filling and chocolate buttercream icing. It was very tasty and I'm glad I tried out this new filling to go with it because I got a few compliments on its taste too. You can see the cheese board I used in the background. I put the chess pieces on at the reception and decorated it with roses that matched with wedding cake my mom made. I think both cakes turned out very well!

Shelby's Luau Birthday Cake

Shelby had a luau party for her 7th birthday and I came up with this idea. I got the idea from a picture I saw online here. I started out using fondant but didn't like the way it turned out so ended up using butter cream frosting instead. I did use the fondant to decorate so of it though and was pleased with how it turned out. Not to bad for my first try with fondant I don't think. Each of the surf boards on top are different, and it just wouldn't be girlie without the crown on top. We used sparkle candles and she really liked that too!

Different angles so you can see the different surf boards.

Here is my little helper! He reminds me of myself at his age. My oldest and dear friend, Regina's grandmother made professional cakes when we were little. I can remember ALWAYS asking for a spoon and a bowl of icing when I came to visit! She made our wedding and grooms cakes when Ricky and I got married and there were so good! Anyway, Ryder was my tester/helper.
