Cake overload

I've been such a slacker when it comes to posting pictures lately. So this post includes a ton of pictures from this month. And let me say, I've been a busy baker!

I made this wine bottle cake for a joint 50th birthday. I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now. It's half chocolate and half vanilla cake with buttercream icing. I painted the bottle with piping gel to give it a shiny look. I didn't think about adding the grapes until the last minute, so I picked up some fake grapes. Next time I will make the grapes out of cake balls or macaroons.

I made these cupcakes for a Dallas Stars theme birthday.

These cupcakes were made for a friend's baby shower. She wanted mini cupcakes that matched the colors of her shower. I decided to put little flowers on top. They were simple yet so cute!

My best friend and her husband created a theater group that puts on plays downtown. For the opening night of their most recent play Alice in Wonderland, I donated mini cupcakes that said "eat me."

This cake was made for little boy's birthday. It was Pokemon themed, and the cake was lemon raspberry.

I made this cake for a 54th birthday. It was red velvet with cream cheese icing. This is the first cake that I have made in the shape of numbers. It was definitely a learning process!

This cake was made for my boss' wife. I was a little nervous to pipe out the message on top, but it turned out great.

This past weekend I had 2 pretty big orders. The first was a ladybug cake. The 3 tier cake was HUGE and so heavy. But I loved the colors and design on it.

I made this ladybug smash cake to go along with it. And it doesn't get much cuter than this!

The second cake I made was a princess cake. This is probably one of my favorite cakes.

I also made a smash cake to go along with it.

And there you have it. Like I said, I was very busy this month.
