My brother in law's sister turned 18 on March 28th, so I made a cake for her. I used fondant again, and this is the second one I've done with fondant. It went okay, but I only had an hour to decorate it, so it's a bit sloppy. I made the fondant instead of buying it, and it tasted 100% better than the wilton stuff. Happy Birthday, Emily! Love you!

A friend of mine from Eureka is getting married in September and she's thinking about having us make favors for her wedding. I wanted to help with the decision making so I sent her some samples to try and win her over. Now she has to decide if she wants us, and which ones she wants. Should be fun! Thanks Kristen!
I was trying to figure out some new recipes for a bridal shower coming up, and this is the first one I came up with, it's fresh raspberry cake with lemon buttercream. I wanted a cake that was light and fresh to go with a spring like theme. I think I nailed it, these were delicious!

We made a cake for Dylan's third birthday party last night, and it turned out great! Krista asked him what kind of cake he wanted and he yelled "Lightning McQueen!" I was going to make a big Lightning McQueen, but I ran out of time, and this one meant that I didn't have to buy him a birthday present, it came on the cake. They absolutely loved the cake, and it was a lot of fun to make. Piping all the grass on made my hand want to fall off, but it was totally worth it. When we brought out the cake everyone got really excited, and Andrew wanted to drive HIS Lightning McQueen on it. Matt and I had a lot of fun with this one, and we'd be happy to do it again, or anything else that you may want.
