I finally decided to put all my cakes in one place so I created this blog--mostly for me to record my fondant cake decorating journey.

Zebra and Pink=LOVE!

Just had to post a few pictures of the cake and cupcakes I made for a friend's little girl today!

I don't normally cover cakes in buttercream, because it takes FOREVER to make smooth and it never gets perfect, but I did it because fondant doesn't smash too well for that little one year old!! (Fondant is definitely my favorite).

Loved the little penant banner!

I wasn't perfect on figuring the time it took me, but I know it was at least 7 hours (not all at once--I did some things ahead of time). These things take a long time, but once it's all done (and if I am happy with the result) it makes it all worth it! I guess it's my creative outlet these days.

Baby Girl's First Birthday

This cake I did a few months ago, just forgot to post about it.  This was first and only cake I have done since baby number 2 joined our family.  It was tough to do, especially because my husband was at work all day and couldn't help with the kids.  I wasn't sure I was going to make it in time for delivery, but it happened!  Phew...not sure I will try that again unless I have someone to watch the kids all day. 

But...I do like how it turned out.
