more birthdays and prom 2011

 Above is a smash cake I did for another Cindy Stansberry photo session (make sure you check her out on facebook and like her page!). The pics from the session turned out great!
 I did this cake for a combined 30th birthday/college reunion for an old friend who I went all the way from elementary to high school with. eek, i can't beleive we are all turning 30 :)
Friday night, we had prom at Grace Academy. It was a lot of hard work, but it was all worth it went I saw my students dressed up having a good time. About a week ago, I realized that prom was the night before I had to get up and take the math GACE. Needless to say, I had to leave early so I could get home and go to bed :( Above is a sample of the flowers I did, and when the photographer gets me the images I will post some more pics!

(not)Post #100!

 When I initially posted this entry, I really thought I had made it to 100 posts. Turns out, dashboard considers drafts in the total number of posts, so this was realy post # 92. stay tuned for my real post 100! Here are some pics of the last couple of projects.The two cakes with flowers were for a tasting that I did today. The whole family took part in the tasting, and I had a really great time getting to know them over cake this afternoon. I am looking forward to baking for them again in July.

 The chocolate cake above was for some friend's join 30th birthday party. This couple is expecting a baby in July, and they decided to use this cake to let their family know what to expect when the baby gets here. The soon to be grandmother ordered the cake, but she had no idea that they birthday couple had asked me to make the cake colored on the inside. I had a great time being in on their secret, and I had fun making the inside blue and the outside chocolate decorations!

Super Mario Cake

It has been a busy (but fun) weekend so far! We just got home from seeing a show at the Fox and having dinner with some good friends. I also finished this cake for a Super Mario themed birthday party. The mom held the party at one of the local gymnastics gyms. When I delivered the cake to the gym, it looked like it was going to be a fun party!

New Flavor!

I have been wanting to try some new flavor combinations, and I got a chance last week when one of Brian's co-workers wanted to surprise her husband with something "peanut butter and chocolate-ey." This flavor combo has always been one of my favorites, and so I was happy to make her some chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter buttercream. Then on Monday, I took a few of these to school, and one of our volunteers liked them so much she ordered a cake!
