Forty Cake, Dinoco Cake, Wow Wow Wubbzy Cake and our baby shower cake!

The first cake this week was made for the celebration of a very big birthday! It's a chocolate cake with all fondant pieces!

This cake was made for one of Rylee's little classmates (and friend), Dylan. Dylan loves all things Dinoco and wanted a Dinoco themed cake! Vanilla cake with fondant!

The Wubbzy cake was made for a little girl who loves the show! I love the colors on this cake! It's a chocolate cake with black raspberry filling. The Wubbzy is fondant and the cake is iced in buttercream with fondant accents. The remaining characters are foam plaques!

The last cake is the cake we made for our family baby shower this weekend! My good friend Jessica was gracious enough to throw the shower for us (this is the second one she's hosted - I promise Jess, no more babies!) and I couldn't have loved the theme more! I'm including a picture of the cake and the table, it was all so beautiful!

(PS - I totally mimicked the design of a cake from the talented Melody who owns the Sweet and Saucy Shop - it's not EXACTLY the same but it definitely served as my inspiration. And as you can see, it worked with the theme perfectly!)

Fun cakes this week!

Reagan's cookies, Halloween cupcakes, Harley groom's cake, Brown and turquoise wedding and Vivi's princess cake!

Busy week for us! We have an even busier week THIS week, if you can believe it!

These were made for one of Rylee's little friends, Reagan. We made cookies for her to take to school and cupcakes for her super fun pumpkin patch birthday party!

These wedding cakes were made in a big hurry! The groom's cake is German chocolate with a fondant Harley logo (Rodney did a GREAT job on this logo) and the wedding cake is almond cake with vanilla filling and Italian Creme! Yum!

This cake was made for a little girl in Rylee's dance class, Vivi. I LOVE the way this cake turned out! The buttercream was nice to me that day and I got a nice, smooth cake! Simple but super cute!

Owen's drum cake, Girly Skull cake, Reunion dessert buffet

Here's what I have been up to this week! Thank goodness for Rodney, the dessert buffet took up the bulk of my time!

Owen's drum cake:

All fondant, strawberry cake. Good thing I have a hubby whose a drummer, this cake would have been too hard to do on my own!

Girly Skull Cake:

This was our girly take on a cake we made almost a year ago! Love the way it turned out! The skull is RKT's covered in chocolate and fondant and the rest of the cake is buttercream!

Lastly, here are a few pictures of the dessert/candy buffet I did for my 10 year high school reunion. (which I also happened to organize...never again!) I'm happy with the way the table turned out!

On the buffet were:

chocolate cheesecake cups
oreo truffles
chocolate chip cookie dough brownies with chocolate ganache
red and blue jelly bellies
vanilla and chocolate cupcakes
lemon and strawberry cake pops
mini pumpkin pies
chocolate dipped pretzel rods

Exhausting week! Glad it's over!
