Lots to post! ~Picture Heavy~

I am a terrible blogger LOL! I thought that this blog would be easier to keep up with than my personal blog because I only write a small bit about each cake, but I was WRONG! Sorry it has been a while, thanks for sticking around :)

I have lots to show you! I have been very busy this past month or so, so this post will include everything I have done, lots of pictures.

1.) First off, FROGGIES! The one of cutest little guys I know turned one year old, I can't even believe it! He had a frog themed birthday (Ribbit Robert!). His sweet Mommy had seen some cupcakes I had done a year or so ago, and wanted some like those. Instead of piping black icing for eyes, I used M&M's, and they turned out great!

His little smash cake was decorated to match. As cute as it was, he HATED it! LOL! I guess when you are the birthday boy, you can decide that ice cream is better than cake...especially if you have never had sugar before!

2.) Next, I had the pleasure of making a wonderful friend's anniversary cake. She sent me a picture of their wedding cake, and wanted it to look like the top tier. (The roses are actually a deep purple, but my camera insists that they are blue!)

The next day, I delivered two baskets of cake ball truffles and chocolate dipped pretzels (the colors even matched their anniversary cake!) to her husband at his work. Her message to me that evening was, "My husband (the diabetic) could NOT put them down!".

3.) Next up was a baby shower. Lots of cupcakes! Some vanilla cupcakes with chocolate icing and colored sugar sprinkles on top, and chocolate cupcakes with colored icing and those wonderful sugar pearls that I love so much!!

4.) And then, I got to make the cutest Curious George cake and smash cake for a precious one year old little girl!

I just love this picture :)

** All of the above EXCEPT the Froggy cupcakes were all done in one weekend! As much as I love doing this, as much joy as it brings me to make people happy and see their faces when they see their cakes/treats, I will never do that to myself again LOL!! That was one stressful week and weekend! I am very proud of myself, though, it all got done and it was the quality type work I would have served to my own family. I lost some sleep, sure, but I'm a Mom...when do I NOT lose sleep :)

5.) The last one I'm going to post tonight was kind of a special order, something I wouldn't ordinarily do - a single smash cake. Since this lady is such a great customer of mine (not to mention, her little girl is gorgeous!), and has been such a pleasure to work with I made an exception. Thanks J, for letting me use this picture!

Thank you, also, Michael Frady Photography for the above picture! Great work!! If you are in the Houston area, you should give him a call :)

Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Stay safe!!
