I Sailed Away...

Do you know where this picture was taken?

If you guessed Cozumel then you are correct.
I just got back from the most wonderful vacation with 9 of my favorite people that included both friends and family. We went on a cruise that left Miami and went to Key West and Cozumel. This picture was taken outside of Fat Tuesday (one of my favorite places for adult beverages) before we got back on our ship. Me in a cake...of course I had to pose so everyone knew why I was out of commission and turning down orders.

Tie Onesies

You have probably gone to craft shows and have seen all sorts of items for baby girls. They get to wear cute hair bows and flowers, tutus, etc. Well now here is the perfect gift for the little man in your life. A onesie with an applique tie. The tie can be in any fabric pattern, which means it can be a sports, holiday, or generic pattern. Onesies come in many sizes and both long sleeve and short sleeve. Order one today!

Everything turns to shit after 40

Bill turned 40 and his loving wife had this cake made for his birthday. They had a great gathering of friends and family and their hometown bar and this was one of the center pieces. This is a 3 layer chocolate cake with buttercream icing. I made the lid from two 12 inch cake boards with dowel rods in between the two boards that were anchored into the cake.

Paige's Sweet 16

Paige's mom told me that she had a "prissy daughter" who loved pink and zebra print. Paige had picked out a cake online that was big, fancy and had feathers and would have cost her mother a future. This is my version of an affordable sweet 16 cake. I met mom Angie and a truck full of teenagers so they could transport the cake 30 miles back home. Hope it made it back to the birthday girl!
This is an 8 inch vanilla cake and a 10 inch vanilla cake with Bavarian cream filling. Both layers are covered in vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant accents. The feathers are not edible and were purchased from the flower section at Hobby Lobby.

Minnie Mouse

This is a shaped cake that was made by using pans that I already own. Minnie's head is 10 inch pan and ears are 2 6 inch pans. After carving a little off of the smaller cakes the pieces fit together like a puzzle. The cake was marble and the frosting that is black is chocolate and the other frosting colors were vanilla buttercream. Happy 2nd Birthday Shelby!

Dora The Explorer

This is a 10 inch chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. I printed the picture from the Internet and laminated it (the edible image didn't get to the store on time). I like the idea of printing the picture giving the customer the opportunity to choose the picture that is used and save some money.

Crayon Rolls

I just love these things. They made great Christmas stocking stuffers this year...keep them in mind for next year. These Crayon Rolls will hold 8 crayons and are the perfect size for throwing in a diaper bag, purse, etc. as you are heading out the door. Keep your little ones entertained while at an appointment, restaurant, church etc.
Two sizes available. Crayon holder as in picture below only holds crayons. I also make a version with a slot for 3 x 5 inch paper pad.

Heat Resistant Covers

When I travel or am getting ready to leave the house one of the last things I do before leaving is my hair. Then I am faced with the dilemma of what to do with my flat iron since it is still hot. I
have created the perfect solution. I now place my hot flat iron (or curling iron) in a heat resistant cover like the ones pictured below and throw it right in my suitcase. The heat resistant fabric keeps the heat locked inside and it is safe to pack with the rest of your items. And if you are going to get a stylish flat iron cover why not get a coordinating makeup bag too.
