Crystal's 18th birthday

The cake that I donated to an auction to raise money for Children's Miracle Network was won by a co-worker named Jeannie. She chose the colors and flavor of cake (strawberry) and had me deliver it to her niece who turned 18. They were very surprised as they only knew that something was being delivered but did not know what it was. They loved it. And it was a joy for me to surprise this family with a cake.
Happy Birthday Crystal!

Happy Graduation Lexi!

This was for my friends daughter, Lexi, who graduated from La Habra High. And soon she'll be off to UC Riverside to enjoy the college life. It was a lot of fun doing this cake. The sunflowers are made from gumpaste and everything else is fondant. The cap is the only thing that is not edible. The bottom book is chocolate and the top book is yellow cake.
Congratulations Lexi!

Cupcakes and Lace Booties

Chocolate on Chocolate, White on white cupcakes. These were for my son's-girlfriends-sister's-baby..did you follow that?
They were for her Christening. She wanted lavender flowers in different shades/sizes. So I made them out of fondant along with the leaves.
The baby booties were made out of gumpaste. I cut pieces of lace (edible lace that I made!) and overlayed it on the pieces before I made the shoes. I loved how they turned out.

Donation for Children's Miracle Network

This is a cake that I took to work (Sam's Club) to put up for auction for CMN. We have been trying to raise money for this great cause and with one week left, associates were asked to donate items. I decided on a small cake (feeds 20). Can't wait to see who wins it!
