What’s more fun than the combination of hot pink and zebra on EVERYTHING? A hot pink and zebra print cake..and maybe some teachers who wanted to throw a co-worker an awesome bachelorette party! From zebra print covered water bottles to hot pink bustier invites, this party screamed fun. A lingerie-gifting party needed a Victoria’s Secret cake complete with the signature pink and black box and some wild undergarments.
The blog no longer needed a light dusting. It needed a complete overall! It’s been almost two years since I’ve posted here! I’ve added a new design and new cakes! Last year (ahem 2 now…yikes), my husband and I packed up our belongings and moved to our new home. This Toy Story cake is one of the last cakes I made in our old stomping grounds. It was for a sweet little girl and her awesome family. The best part…she was one of my first Pre-K students. I bet she thought it was pretty awesome that her teacher could make a her a cake too or she was completely confused as to why her teacher was invited to her party. Either way, I think she liked it! All decorations are fondant exclusive of the figurines. Two years later, I still have Woody’s figurine counterpart, Buzz, hanging out in my cake closet. Anyone up for a Buzz cake?
Alright ladies and gentlemen, things have gotten serious here on the blog. I made my first wedding cake in October. It was made for two friends from college who just happen to live near us. The branch and leaf design was taken from the wedding invitation and her bridesmaids wore the deep red color. The cupcakes were red velvet with whipped vanilla frosting. The cake was vanilla with vanilla icing covered in fondant and decorated with hand-painted branches and leaves perfect for a fall wedding.
Little brother was not left out! That’s right the two sweet ladies who got the Ariel and Tinkerbell cakes also have a little brother. He turned 1 in August and got his very own Mini Flight Plan cake. I’m glad this post was up before he turned two!
Things have been a little stale around here, pardon the dust! A new teaching job has kept me on my toes and out of the kitchen. I’ll have to back up to summer to catch up! Not to be left out, big sister of the little girl who got the Ariel cake below, got her own cake in August. This Tinkerbell cake was petite and simple. All fondant decorations except for the candle.
If you’ve been following this blog for a little while, you might remember a princess cake I made back in September. That little girl’s sister just turned 3 and I got to make a second cake for this great family. I had so much fun making this cake. The bright flowers and colors were fun to work with and the inside of the cake was a new recipe for me. Strawberry cake with vanilla icing because the birthday girl loves strawberries! Flounder and Sebastian were created from fondant…the Ariel candle purchased.
This cake traveled over 1,000 miles in the car and survived! It was made for my brother who graduated from high school this spring. Orange and blue are the school colors. Chocolate with peanut butter buttercream icing on top and vanilla with vanilla buttercream in the bottom.
