Here is a cowboy themed cake for a guy who loves horses. I am not skilled with drawing horses yet so I recommended horse shoes and a fondant bandanna. I thought the end result looked nice.

Class of 2008

No June would be complete without a few graduation cakes. Here are a couple I did this year. One was for a Andrews High School graduation and the other is for a group of students that graduated from Advantage College.

Matthew's Puppy Cake

Free handing a dog is more challenging than you would imagine. This was a large sheet cake for Matthew. I did a lot of research to find a dog that would be easy to reproduce on a cake with frosting and this one was what I came up with. It was cute and I am told that everyone liked it. I do love a challenge. I think it was cute.

Golf Fan

Father's day was a few weeks ago and I got a call to make a special golf cake. I used the half ball pan on top of the smaller sheet cake to create a 3-dimensional golf ball and I used a grass tip to add a little flair.

Fun and Funky Wedding Cake

Here is a little non-tradition for you. A sweet couple got married last week and had a fun little beach wedding. Here is the cake I made for them. The larger bottom layer was chocolate and the top was carrot as requested by the bride. The colors were bold but I thought it was so cute as a finished product. This would make a great show for a ladies get together or a teen birthday party. I thought it turned out well.

Lisa's Tennis Cake

Lisa A. had a birthday and her sweet hubbyWoody ordered this cake. She LOVES tennis so nothing else would do. This is a sheet cake with a half ball cake decorated to look like a tennis ball. She loved the cake and she and her whole family gave me kudos on the cake.

Pirate Mickey

I know it has been a while since I have added new cakes. Sorry about that. I seem to stay busy these last few weeks. My friend Claire G. ordered this little cutie for her son Peyton's Birthday. They had gone on a Disney cruise and Pirate Mickey was the theme. This cake will feed a lot of people if you serve the top mickey and then the bottom cake. My friend Tiffany called me one day and asked if I wanted an old cake pan she had found. As it turned out, it was this mickey pan. Claire then called and asked for the pirate Mickey cake which worked out so well. Thanks Tiff- Mickeys bandanna, shoes and pants were made out of rolled fondant. The rest was frosting.
