My Cricut Cake Machine is Here!!!

WOOOT WOOOOT!!!! This week can't get any more exciting than this!! First I debuted my new website and now I just got in the mail my Cricut Cake machine! I'm so excited, I can't wait to play with it!!! I know there are tons of opinions out there about this machine but I figured you have to pay to win!!!! I'll let you know how it turns out...stay tuned....

Whimsical Topsy Turvy Retirement Cake

I know I keep saying that I had a lot of fun making these cakes, but I really do!! I love what I do! Its sooo therapeutic for me...and the reaction that I receive from just can't get a better feeling than that! This client originally requested a 1/4 sheet cake and I kindly had to inform her that we no longer produce sheet cakes but specialize in customized tiered cakes. So I suggested a topsy turvy cake (because I like to make them...yes I'm a little bias!!) and she happily agreed. Its a cake for a retirement party and is a White Velvet Cake with Strawberry Mousse Filling and Vanilla Buttercream. Hope they all enjoy!

SF Giants Jersey Shirt Cake

I had so much fun making this cake. When my client requested making a cake for a SF Giants fan, I jumped at the opportunity because I've been wanting to make a jersey/shirt cake for some time now...either that or a baseball hat cake...I was torn so I just decided to make the jersey. The client requested a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. I'm pretty excited how it turned out.

Corporate Order

These clients have been repeat customers and I love that they like my work/cookies! Its just a little weird seeing your own work being eaten in front of you!!! LOL And no Steve, they do not have any kriptenite in them!!! They're just that good!! :D

Ooops I Did It Again...

I can't believe that I forgot to take a picture of this creation...but it looks exactly like this one that I did a couple months back and the new client wanted the EXACT replica of this I complied... except for the fact that the cake I made this time was Double Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Hazelnut filling and Chocolate Fudge Icing.

Daisies Cookie Bouquet & Cake!

These cookie bouquets are soo fun to make! I had a birthday order for a co-worker/friend and so I decided to give her a cookie bouquet. They are all daisies. I got the idea from a fellow flickr contact and just made it my own. They really turned out really cute! My friend really liked it too!!

Ironically enough, her job also ordered a cake for her birthday! Its a Mexican Chocolate Cake with Almond Buttercream...YUMMM! Sorry for the bad lighting on the pic, but it was really late when I finished the cake and I didn't have time to put up the 'studio' lights.

Happy Tax Day

Wow! What a day to celeberate your birthday! But what a fun way to celebrate! With a cookie bouquet!! This was a really fun order to make. I don't make too many cookie bouquets and I'm not really sure why. They are so freakin adorable. And sooo springtime. This order was for a client who was giving it to their colleague for a birthday gift. She requested that some baby onsies be included as her colleague is pregnant. I think it turned out really cute!

Red Velvet Yumo-ness!!

Today was the second day of my career discovery course at the CIA-Greystone. I'm loving every minute of it! I had a quick order (red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting) for a client to deliver today before I headed back to Greystone---I can't believe how much I'm learning. I love it!!! More to come!
