Strawberry Cake

Brian was in charge of the raffle item at his Rotary Club this week. The club uses the money that they raise each week to support local charities here in Griffin. Instead of getting a gift card, like he usually does, he asked me to make a strawberry cake. This is yet another recipe that my mother in law has graciously shared with me.

a house divided...

These cupcakes were for a Monroe Academy class reunion. I did these for the sister of one of my Utility Club friends, and when I met with her, I got to relive a few of my reunion planning memories. I can't believe it has almost been a year since my class reunion, and I know the next one will be here before we know it!

This cake was my first "house divided" cake. The person I did it for wanted a joint birthday cake for her mom and husband. Since their birthdays are just a few days apart we combined their favorite teams onto a shared cake.

cakes for babies

A while back, Cindy Stansberry at Stansberry photography asked me if I would be interested in doing some smash cakes for the one year old shoots that she does. This cake is our first "collaboration." I can't wait to see the results of her shoot. Cindy is an amazing photographer, and I love looking through all of her pictures. You can check out her work here, and become a fan on facebook!

My brother had a baby in June. They were in town recently and we had Pearl's rescheduled baby shower while they were passing through to get to their new Coast Guard post in North Carolina. Here is the cake I did for Pear'ls party.

Happy 30th Brookbridge!

Over the July 4th weekend, the neighborhood I grew up in celebrated 30 years. Not only is Brookbridge a neighborhood, but its an airport as well. I used the sign from the entrance as the inspiration for the cake. We had a great time, there were a ton of people there from current neighbors to some of the originals that have since moved on. I have to give a shout out to my dad, who cooked some of the best ribs i have ever tasted!!
