Dots and Dirt

I'm a little behind on blogging (as usual), so here's a few from the last couple of weeks...

This was for our friends Mike & Charity's baby girl Alanna.
She had a "Little Polka Dot Bikini" party :)

Matching cupcakes

Sweet little Smash cake

This was for Monica's daughter's 2nd birthday. It was a Princess theme, and I did apples and cookies to match. Turns out caramel apples are hard to keep from melting when it's 110 degrees outside!! :(

I did this cake for a friend from work. It was Faozat's friend's son's 2nd birthday. I had a blast with this cake!! (And my boys LOVED it too!)

Thanks everyone for your orders! :)

Welcome Baby Jacob!

I was in Arizona last weekend for my cousin Andrea's baby shower, which I helped plan with my aunt Sandy. Of course I had to let some creativity flow.....

Here's my beaming cousin, Andrea!
(Yes, Anj- you ARE beaming! :)

And here's the fun candy/dessert buffet I put together!

The cupcakes were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and chocolate with peanut butter frosting. Amazing!!!

The take-out boxes for candy :)

So, I had a little mishap with my original PB frosting...
but I couldn't let it go to waste!! I decided it would make perfect PB balls dipped in chocolate. All I have to say is I think we all died and went to heaven...

Rice krispie treats

And since I wasn't making a REAL cake, I decided to make a diaper one!

Thanks Aunt Sandy and Andrea- for letting me butt in and do all the froo froo stuff! You know I love it, and was so happy I could do it for you!! :) Can't wait to meet little Jake!!
