Yes, I've been slacking again on keeping up on my blog! Life just has a way of interfering with things sometimes, but get ready for a heck of a catch up!
I'll start with this week's cakes. Julie was a joy to work with. She was organized and knew exactly what she wanted. I made two cakes for her mother's 70th birthday. The purse cake was made to look like a Jessica Simpson handbag. Hopefully she liked it! :)
And the sheet cake to match:
Princess Brynn celebrated her 1st birthday today. The cake is a 14" round chocolate cake with cookies n' cream filling. The carriage is strawberry swirl cake. The pretty little crown is made out of white chocolate, as are the shoe and the jewels. Happy Birthday Brynn!
And an interesting wedding cake for Leah and Justin. I have never done a cake quite like this one. I wish I coud post credit to the original designer, but the picture I received didn't have any watermark on it.
We had such an interesting week at the farmers market last Tuesday. The weather was absolutely beautiful at the beginning. A little hot, but the cupcakes made it there without melting. Maybe that's because I was FINALLY smart enough to put them in a cooler! Duh! My granddaughters came to visit in their new adorable little outfits...
Not long after the grandkids left, the skies darkened and the scariest storm I've ever seen moved in. The sky was growling...no, seriously, growling. It was a constant sound, unlike any type of thunder I've ever heard. The wind kicked up and tents started flying like crazy. We got our stuff contained, then my daughter and her girlfriend took off to help others with their tents. I'm pretty sure a few of these tents didn't survive...
Needless to say, we're hoping for better weather this week! :) Although the rain doesn't seem to be in a big hurry to stop.
Okay, enough catch up for one day. I leave for vacation next week, so nooo cake orders. Which means I'll have time to post again. Probably. :)
