I'm such a terrible blogger! It's been a while since I've updated but between Rylee's birthday and all of the other festivities that are happening now, it's hard to find a moment!

Here's what we've been up to!

Rylee's  5th birthday cake! ( I promise to dedicate a post to this along with the other things I did for the party at a later date - I did a candy bar and some awesome favors!)

The busiest week ever.

Wow! Can't believe we made it through this week! Just when I think that it can't get any crazier, it does!

Here's what went down around here ON TOP of all of our Halloween activities...

Our biggest project this week was a wedding and groom's cake for a friend. Monica and Nick are such a cute and fun couple and I was REALLY excited to take on this project. Through our meetings we somehow agreed that I would also do the flower for their big day! It was a big project but I had a lot of fun!

The wedding cake:

A quick snap I took at the GORGEOUS location. (check it out

Doesn't it look great against the stain glass? That whole room was gorgeous! 

The groom's cake

I think this cake really personifies who Monica and Nick are as a couple! I love how unique and different it is for a groom's cake! 

I actually ended up doing the flowers for this wedding, too! How crazy am I? If you ask Rodney, the answer would be "INSANE." I had some awesome help (thanks Andrea and Ana!) and I'm pretty happy with the results. I didn't photograph any thing except the bridal bouquet! 

You can't see it but there is bear grass looped around the whole thing as well. Wish I had taken some better pictures! Hopefully the photographer got some shots of the florals.

Sweet Parker

This was for our friend, Arden. Arden's an AMAZING photographer! Seriously, she's one of the best and you should book with her! ( Her precious daughter recently turned a year old and she went with a Sweet Pea theme (play on words - get it? Pea = Parker).

The smash cake :)

Bridal shower

A themed Halloween Party!

What a crazy busy week! We made it through and I'm so proud of us! Time to start working on a certain little girl's 5th's just 3 weeks away! I can't believe it...

Cowgirl, Cinderella, Pumpkin Patch, Barbecue Grill Cakes

Here's what we've been up to lately!

Cowgirl Cake for Rylee's friend, Reagan:

This cake was made for a SUPER cute western themed party! The kids rode horses, had s'mores pops and even drank lemonade out of boot shaped cups!

I love how this cake turned out. The belt buckle is my favorite part! I did make horse shaped cookies that were given out at this party but regrettably forgot to take pictures of them!

This cake was made for another little friend of Rylee's. Her mother is quite possibly the sweetest person I've ever made so I couldn't wait to get this cake made for them! All Vivi wanted was a Cinderella doll cake with her very own Cinderella in it :)

The pumpkin patch cake was a fun one to make! Rodney totally carved the pumpkin himself! Didn't he do a great job? He's such the carver-extraordinaire. I love the vines and leaves on this cake! I had fun decorating it and putting it together!

Tailgate 2010/Barbecue Grill cake

Every year our church holds a big tailgate party outside on the grounds during the weekend that the Cowboys have a by (no one would come if they were playing - though I'm not totally sure that's accurate this season).  Groups get together and cook and try to outdo one another. It's a lot of fun and very competitive! I was in charge of our tailgate last year (and we won!) but I've sort of had to pass the reigns a bit this year because I have just about nine other million things going on (and when I say nine million, I mean Logan and Hadley). 

Anyway, our tailgate grew so much this year! We had SEVENTY people included in our group. That's pretty amazing! The food was awesome and I'm so glad to know so many others that share in my passion for cooking/baking/decorating. 

Most of us felt like The Rangers were the team we wanted to support this year so we decorated with baseballs and wore our Ranger gear :) (what? baseball fans tailgate too!)

Every year Rodney and I make a big cake for the tailgate party and this year we decided to make a barbecue grill. It's always a fun project for us to work on - and I'm pleased with how it turned out. (representing the Rangers on my fondant napkin, too)

Green Eggs and Ham baby shower cake, Teapot, Triathlon Cake

These are the cakes we worked on last week! What a crazy busy week it was, too!

Green Eggs & Ham baby shower:

This was a new one for us! We had to put on our engineering hats on to figure out the mechanics of this one. It was a challenge but we figured it out! Kudos to Rodney for making this work!

Teapot Cake:

This was made for a little girl's tea party themed birthday! Loved the way it turned out, very girly and sweet!

Dave's Triathlon Cake:

This was for our friend, Dave. Dave's wife threw him a surprise 40th birthday party at Dave and Buster's and I helped her plan everything for this exciting event! We worked for a few weeks on the perfect combination of party favors to be included in each box and she wanted a cake that represented the things that Dave loves! Both being avid athletes, the triathlon cake seemed just right!

After I finished the cake, I emailed Jenn a pic and she informed me that the bicycler was supposed to be on the middle tier and the runner should be on the top! After a little bit of refiguring, I switched the two and added some things to cover up the fondant that was messed up when the pieces were removed. These pictures were taken at the party by Jenn and Dave's friend, George (George Dean Photography in Denton, TX). I also designed the party favor boxes, aren't they cute?

Fun party and fun cake to make!

See you guys next week, we have a bunch of cool designs coming up soon!
