Berry Delicious!

Chocolate Covered StrawberryMy step daughter REALLY likes strawberries. Strawberry anything, really. So, I made her this chocolate covered strawberry cake (with real strawberries in the mix) for her birthday. I don’t believe I have ever seen someone so excited to have the first bite!

How would you like to have a birthday on March 17th? Someone is always making Leprechaun references or something of the like EVERY time you celebrate…and why should I be any different? My friend’s son has a St. Paddy’s Day b-day, so what would be more fitting on his 18th birthday than to wish him good fortune in his future? Pot O'Gold

Give Me Liberty….

…or serve me cake! Wait, that’s not how it goes, is it? ūüôā

The local Republican women teamed up with the Teenage Republicans and held a candidate forum and voter registration. They asked me for a cake with the Republican logo on it to serve about 65 people and I was happy to do it for them! They were happy, too!

“You’re going to the beach again THIS weekend? ” Well, we had to put off my friend,Cindy’s, birthday AGAIN this year because she had decided to take a trip¬†to the beach. She and her husband have a little place down there and they love spending time there. So, when she (finally) got back from her vacation, we celebrated her birthday, albeit, a bit late. She was tickled to see what I had created for her this year.

Two Hearts…

..two hearts that beat as one; Their lives have just begun….I’ve known Tiffany since she was 5 years old. She is absolutely one of my favorite people and is as kind as she is beautiful. I made this cake for her and her fiance, Ernie, because their hearts truly do beat as one. As they embark on this journey together, I wish them the very best life can offer.Tiffany Blue Shower¬†

BTW, the two hearts on top are gluten-free¬†and Tiffany’s mother (Tiffany has¬†the wheat allergy) said it was the best¬†gluten-free¬†cake she has ever eaten.¬† Tiffy thought it was delicious, as well.

Congratulations, Tiffy and Ernie!

It’s college graduation time already.¬† My nephew graduated last weekend from the University of Florida – GO GATORS!¬† Sadly, I knew I couldn’t send a cake to him from North Carolina to Florida.¬† I would have loved to create a sugar delight in honor of the occasion.¬† I would have hidden the creation from my husband and son – avid Carolina fans!¬† They would have sent a special message to Bryant, I’m sure.

Today, my best friends’ daughter graduation from Peace College.¬† Do girl’s schools without sports teams have mascots?¬† Anyway, Erika graduated with an awesome GPA, a double major and a minor – all in 4 years!¬† Now that is outstanding.¬† AND, she has a JOB waiting for her!¬† What a relief to her parents.

I created this cake for Erika, it has chocolate chip cookie layers and vanilla butter cream.  The cap is a mega rice crispy treat covered in fondant.  The mortar board is the only thing not edible Рcardboard.

Keepin’ it sweet!
