Change of Command

These giant cakes are high in demand lately.  This full sheet was for HT-18's change of command ceremony.  
(The thing I hate about the giant cakes: it's hard to center the writing)
I saved myself several hours on this cake and went with an edible image for the logo instead of royal icing like last time)

Military Retirement

I had the privilege of making our neighbor's retirement cake.  John is retiring in January after almost 26 years of service.  (He just had his ceremony a little early.)  The cake is buttercream with a royal icing logo.

Pirates and Princesses

We have a party place here in our town called Fefe and Frogs.  They do themed parties mostly for little girls, but if you want a few of your little boy friends to come, you get to have a "Pirates and Princesses" party.  So that's what I did for Madelyn. This cake is covered in buttercream with marshmallow fondant accents.  The crown topper is made of royal icing.

Warrior Salad

Ok, so this is NOT a cake or anything sweet for that matter (unless you count the "craisins").  But it is delicious and I felt like sharing.
Drew and I are on a health kick right now.  We're eating right and *gasp* exercising!  So I bought some quinoa, which I love, but was looking for a way to jazz it up.  I found it in Daphne Oz's "warrior salad."  You can find the recipe HERE.
