January, 2010 Cakes

We had a wonderful Christmas Holiday, and then came back to the shop to do lots of cute cakes. We did baby showers, birthdays, and then a couple of cakes that really don't fit into any catagory!

Let's start with the baby shower cakes.
This precious animal cake was a copy of the invitation.
This tiered cake was done in the colors of the nursery with the baby's initial on top!
Another cake copied from and invitation.
Let's move on to boy's birthdays.

This cake was for a boy who had just started playing the guitar.

This was the smash cake for a 1-year-old.

Now let's take a look at some of the girls' birthday cakes.
Here's a "Princess and the Frog" cake...

We did lots of adult birthdays in January, too.
Here's a 1/4 sheet cake with a 3-D roulette wheel for a 50th birthday.

This tiered cake was white cake with buttercream icing on the bottom tier and chocolate cake with chocolate fudge icing on the top tier. It was for a women's meeting at a church where the theme was "Choice, Change, Challenge".

Cakes from November 1-December 31

Sorry it's been so long since this blog has been updated. November and December were crazy months, both at the cake shop and at home. Hopefully, we're back on track with updates.

During those two months we did lots of birthday cakes...for both adults and children. Let's look at them first.

This tiered cake was for a man's 40th birthday. It included grave markers for past birthdays as well as the fateful 40.

This man's birthday cake included his favorite team's helmet and the name of his Fantasy Football team.
This man's casino cake came complete with cards, dice, and poker chips.
This cake included the birthday man's grandchildren and his love of mallard ducks, fishing, and NASCAR racing.
This 40th birthday cake included the recipient's love of golf, travel, and well as his workplace logo.
The "Survivor" logo seemed particularly appropriate for this cancer survivor's birthday cake.
This cake reflects the recipient's love of all things Apple.
This lady loves round barns and even has a collection of models of them. This birthday cake is a replica of her favorite.
