Zebra Print and Stiletto 40th Birthday Cake

Okay, I was sooo excited to make this cake for Brenda, Patti's sister (summit girls, thanks Lee and Zannie).  She thought she wanted a sheet cake, but I suggested something a little less, ,,,,,,,,,,,boring!!   LOL    Hey, you only turn the big 40 once!  Unless you are me, and have been the big 40 for the past few years.   Just sayin'...........

Anywho. I drew this sucker up and executed the plan.  All went well until I hit the, "freak out" phase of my cake decorating.  Usually, about 4 hours prior to delivery, this cake decorator gets a wave of nausea thinking that something is going to go wrong with the cake, thus ruining a perfectly good celebration.  Considering this is one of the largest cake I have ever made, (should serve 100, no really it's sooo heavy!), the freak out was superior to all the rest.  What if it sinks, what if my DH is not able to carry it to the car, what if they cancel Grey's Anatomy? What?   Um, OK...... Tony has been known to take a tumble or 2 or 10.  Clumsiness......some say it's cute, me, I want to push the bastard down again for being so friggin clumsy! Sorry, I digress, uh, ya, I feared the worst.  But, alas, the cake made it in one piece to it's final destination.  The Ativan I took prior to delivery did the trick.  And another one of a kind creation makes it to the history books.

Happy 40th Birthday, Brenda!!  You are going to shine this decade.  If not, I will spray you with shellac.  :)  

Best Gift Ever Cake

Another cake for my beautiful Lexi Joy!!  19 this year.  So proud of my girl!  Working hard as a college freshmen and a couple of part time jobs to boot!  She is a chip off the ol' block, she is, I tell ya!! 

Anywho, Happy Birthday my wonderful girl!!  You have made this cake decorator (mom) so very proud.  You ARE my gift from heaven.  :)

IPod Touch Cake

I have been neglecting my cake blog. :( Life got really crazy and I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I am, however, back! :)

OK, let me tell you about the Ipod Touch cake I made for one of my 2 favorite set of male twins. M & M, as their mom, Jean, my BFF refers to them, turned 16 this year. The cake came out cute, and the boys liked it a whole bunch. What I loved most about this cake was that the next day, Matt, used the headphones while doing yard work. LOL Anywho, I sure do hope the boys enjoyed their cake as much as I enjoyed making it. See you next year, guys!!
