These tasty snowflake cookies and cakebites were made for Christel Benson (www.funxionology.com). She ordered several cookies and cakebites for all her Christmas gatherings. Christel reported that everyone enjoyed the sweets very much. We traded our goods with each other. Christel designs personalized cards so I ordered some for my Christmas gifts. Thank you Christel!!!
No matter who the cake was for it turned out really cute and both owner and pooch loved the cake.

Little baby feet are coming! Maia will soon arrive to her happy family. Alicia helped celebrate this joyous occasion by ordering a cake from us. We matched a napkin that she had bought for the party. This cake was too cute to cut! Thank you Alicia.
Thank you for your continued support and loyalty Angela!
Yes, B-A-N-A-N-A-S! No, not the pop hit, the cake silly! This cake was done a few weeks back for Breann. She said that it was quit tasty and her surprised mother loved it. A long family 'nanner tradition, this recipe (provided by Breann's daddy-o) was very interesting. The frosting was referred to as "sea foam". Perhaps this tasty tradition was crafted by pirates? Funny, Breann doesn't wear a patch on her eye..... Thank you for this tasty challenge Breann!

His little T-shirt even matched the theme:
What a cutie. We hope you had a memorable 1st Birthday Sylar!
Happy 9th Birthday Olivia!!!
I created this brightly colored ocean scene with a dolphin jumping from the water. I used a stencil that I cut myself for the dolphin. The material I used for the stencil was kinda flimsy. So if anyone knows of a better material for stenciling please let me know.
The man, the legend, a genius of his time. Pittsburg Art Supply (620.231.1004) pays homage to Pollock by ordering a Pollockesq (yeah, that's not a word) from me for Pittsburg's Fall Art Walk on Broadway last Saturday (www.myspace.com/PittsburgArtWalk).
My inspiration: Convergence 1952
I created 2 long skinny canvases from a sheet cake and went to town splattering frosting about, using similar Pollock colors. Whoever got to eat this probably went into a sugar comma afterwards. Reviewing the painting again...I could have used a little more black!
Thanks Pittsburg Art Supply!
I had fun creating these. Sylvia left me a message on my phone telling me how much she appreciated them. I bagged each one with a black bow and put them inside 2 plastic witch cauldrons (is that right?). I LOVE Halloween!
These were a few things that I offered at the Sip & Shop. I had several platters of Cake Bites also...they took center stage all on their own of course!

I almost forgot:
THANK YOU JANET FOR HOSTING THIS FABULOUS EVENT! Your home is amazing and your little boy is the cutest! Thanks.
These are available in any color and any kind of cookie. The sugar, spice and butter cookies work best. They would make super cute gifts at a Wedding reception, Bridal Shower, Baby Shower, etc. They can be customized for ANY occasion. Some brides have these instead of a Wedding cake! Crazy...I know.

You don't know what a cake walk is? Well, let me tell you, it's where a bunch of people walk around in a circle to music and when the music stops they see what square of the circle they are standing on. If their square is called, they win a cake! Pretty AMAZING, huh! This goes on for several hours. It sounds strange, I know, but people do it and they love it! Cheap entertainment.
Most of the pretty decorated cakes are saved for the Cake Auction. The whole town gets in on this one! It's for a good cause. All of the proceeds from the cake walk and the cake auction go to the Senior Class. Tradition rules!
My sister is a Senior this year...but we made her make her own cakes! She's a big girl...right? I know, we are mean. We love you Keish!

Dr. Shirley Drew, a professor at Pittsburg State University, had a book signing yesterday to celebrate the publishing of her book: Dirty Work. Dirty Work can be found on amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com with the ISBN #: 1932792732. The book was edited by Shirley K. Drew, Melanie B. Mills and Bob M. Gassaway.
I was honored to create an over sized rendition of Dirty Work for the book signing. The cake turned out nicely. However, I am still familiarizing myself with the art of sculpting a cake! Thanks for the practice Shirley.
Now, everyone go out and buy this book! It is very interesting and will definitely give you an insight to those jobs that have been tainted by society. We could all use a little insight once in a while.

From what we can tell your momma loves you dearly. She asked us to make this book cake special for you! We hope you and your co-workers love devouring "The Story of LaShawna". What could be better than curling up with a good book made of chocolate Cake??? NOTHING!
So, what do you think? Please give me suggestions and comments. Feel free to email me at email@example.com

And here is the actual Wedding Cake:
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Smalley! Your reception looked beautiful with all the bamboo plants. Thank you for letting us try something new with your cake. A true testiment to our new awesome software!
The colors of the ribbon changed...for the better. It's great to see it brought to life before it is actually created!
Anyway, thank you Sharon and Bryant for the gamer lesson! I need to keep up with these things...Pop Culture is too much for me :)

Yeah, I know...my titles are getting a little too silly, even for me.
I constructed this two tier cake for my mother-in-law and my niece-in-law. That sounds sooo strange (is niece-in-law even a word?).
Anyway, it was both of their b-days so my sister-in-law asked that I do a cake for the two of them. I used curly ribbon as the topper, strawberry milkshake whoppers for the border, and finished it off with pink and purple frosting. The kids really liked the whoppers...in fact, I think that might have been all they ate! When I cut it, the purple and pink filling stood out against the chocolate cake. It was very cute.
I did have competition however...the neighbors brought over "Better than Sex" cake. How can I compete with that? It is...exactly what it is called. I'll have to come up with an EVEN BETTER than sex cake! That might be too much for everyone to handle. Hold on to your boot straps! :)
This extra sweet cake was made for a young girl who asked for a Candy cake. Delaney, I did my best...I hope you liked it. I wanted to make the cake actually look like candy, but I just didn't have time...
Being a fan of all types of candy myself I had a lot of fun with this! Plus, I got to eat candy :). Thanks Linda and Delaney!

Angela got lots and lots of presents and even got embarrassed a little. We made her change a dolls diaper blind folded. The whole sha-bang! Clothes, powder, desiten, diaper, etc. It was funny. We concluded that the best part of baby showers is getting to embarrass the mom. It's a crowd pleaser every time. We highly recommend this to future baby shower hosts.
Below is a picture of the cupcakes I decorated for this special occasion. They were simply chocolate with chocolate frosting and jungle animals on top. Simple and sweet. There is a close up of one of the Giraffe cupcakes (Angela's favorite). A little blurry, but you get the point. I think the photographer was drunk or something?
These mints were made by the step-grandma and Angela herself. They turned out REALLY cute! Even though Sweet Designs Cakery did not make these...we can if you would like!
