....there's an app for that (iphone cake)

This is my wonderful hubbie's 38th b-day cake. He got an iphone from my daughter for father's day-yep, my 10 year old saved her christmas and b-day money the whole year to pay for it. Just trying to carry the theme a little further, and yeah, I know the ipod is on upside down, Kenzie pointed it out, but by then it was really stuck to the fondant and I couldn't move it.

Kenzie's Funky Flower Cake

For Kenzie's 10th B-day she wanted a slightly more grownup girly cake. Got the basic idea from some other blogs. Bottom layer is my new favorite which would be perfect wedding cake-white chocolate w/ raspberry, orange marmalade filling, cream cheese white choc icing, 2nd layer brownie w/ choc ganache, and 3rd and 4th layers pistachio. All covered in homemade fondant of course and decorated w/ gumpaste gerber daisies. First time I've trimmed w/ fabric ribbons, but it was easy and worked great-almost stuck to the cake w/out icing. Painted also w/ shimmer powder.

Olympic Swimmers

Kenzie with Olympians Eric Shanteau and Carolyn Burckle(who's also from Kentucky) at the University of Louisville for the Mutual of Omaha Breakout Swim Clinic. She got to swim with these guys which was really cool. They actually seemed like super nice people. Eric found out he had testicular cancer I think right before the Olympic trials and after he made the team, waited on his treatment until after he swam the Olympics-don't blame him-he did with Dr.'s counsel. It was a fun day.

Kenzie's Easter Cupcakes

Easter cupcakes for Kenzie to take to school. Brownie and chocolate chip cookie w/ fudge cream cheese icing and white chocolate with white chocolate cream cheese icing topped with chocolate easter eggs and cute little bows to match(the most difficult part of making these was the little bows).

Happy Birthday Linda

This was for my MIL's 61th birthday. White chocolate cake with white chocolate cream cheese icing and raspberry glaze-pretty good if I do say so myself.
