Pre-K grad, end of year butterfly cupcakes, pink bridal shower, baseball bridal, and a 5 tiered wedding cake

Yes. This was the craziest week of our lives. I'm almost positive I am typing this in my sleep. Please excuse any grammar or punctuation erors. See, there was one just now. ERRORS.

I'd love to go into major detail about every cake but like I said, I am sleeping and this is all a dream. Short and sweet folks, short and sweet.

First up, pre-k graduation and end of the year cupcakes. This week was the end of preschool for the year and that meant it was time for all of the pre-kers to graduate. I made these same cupcakes last year so it wasn't terribly difficult to get these together.



I also made these butterfly cupcakes for Rylee's class. They were the "butterflies" this year and when I saw these in Hello Cupcake!, it made perfect sense!



This pink bridal shower cake was for a last minute order. Pretty simple request and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE using disco glitter! Glitter for everyone! (Red velvet with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant)



Baseball Bridal

This cake was done for the shower of a couple whose wedding I am doing later this summer. They are baseball fans and her bridesmaid thought this cake would be a perfect fit! Rodney and I had a lot of fun with this one, I love how it turned out! (dark chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and milk chocolate icing. the cupcakes are dark chocolate with vanilla buttercream)



And last but not least, THE wedding cake.

This cake was a lot of fun to work on. I really thought we would have more problems with this cake but it all seemed to work out. The top two tiers are dummies, leaving the bottom three tiers real (vanilla/vanilla buttercream). Rodney did the fondant work on the cake (stripes and dots) and I made the bow and iced the entire thing. (ivory buttercream)

I am really pleased with the way it turned out. I wish we had turned the middle tier in just a little bit more but in the end, I think it was fine.











I covered that cake in disco glitter, I can't wait to see some of the professional pictures! Our friend, William was the dj and he put some spot lights on it as well. I am so excited to see how it looked all together!

It was literally the craziest week of our lives but we managed to survive! I am so proud of both Rodney and I, we hardly got any sleep but I think everyone who ordered a cake this week was happy!

Steph...love all your work as usual, but the baseball field cake and baseball cupcakes are incredible! I'm buying tickets to a Nats game right now! You should get a commission from MLB :)
