Finnley Turns 1!

I had the privilege of making sweet Finnley's 1st birthday cake.  His parents are good friends of ours in our Sunday School class at church.  Finnley is a sweetheart and I was happy to make him a birthday cake.  Unfortunately, we had to miss the party due to our vacation we had planned since this summer.  
He had a Halloween Costume party and his mommy wanted something with black, white, and orange and kid friendly Halloween.

I heard the party was a blast and that Finnley really enjoyed himself!

Halloween Birthday

October is a very popular month for "Halloween" themed birthday parties.  (for obvious reasons) But how fun to have a birthday party where everyone can dress up!  I made this cake for a little boy at my church.  It was such a fun design!  I hope he likes it!
I tried a "Halloween-ish" drippy font
Around the sides I did some spiders and spiderwebs
 and a spooky tree with birds on the other side.

Like I said, this one was a lot of fun!  Doesn't it just put you in the Halloween mood?  I have another Halloween birthday cake for a 1 yr old next weekend!  So, stay tuned!

Star Wars Legos

This past weekend I had the opportunity to make a cake for my nephew.  He was having a Star Wars Lego party, so I knew it would be a fun one.  His mom sent me a picture of one that he really liked and this is my version of that picture.  The birthday boy loved it!
The top tier is white cake and the bottom tier is chocolate.  The cake is covered in marshmallow fondant with sugar sheet accents.  the bordering legos are made of chocolate. :)  All edible except for the Darth Vadar candle!
