“Klock Cake Season” !

This Klock family has become an extended family of mine. I absolutely adore them and have really enjoyed making birthday cakes for them over the past few years. Their birthdays are all during the summer months and they order a cake from me for every one, which is so special. We have a lot of fun brainstorming ideas and always do something fun…So I decided to dedicate this whole blog post to all of the cakes they came up with this year (and some from the past years) I present to you: “Klock Cake Season”!

We’ll start with Joey! This year, Joey’s cake was Florida-themed. The Klocks love vacationing in Florida and one of Joey’s favorite places is Discovery Cove.

Here are some of Joey’s other cakes…

Next up, Mick! This year, Mick’s birthday cake pulled a couple themes together. He is a huge Washington Capitals fan so we wanted to do a zamboni cake…He currently lives in D.C. but is moving back to his “home state” of Pennsylvania soon so we wanted to incorporate that as well. Here’s what his mom, Lynne, and I came up with…

Here are a couple of Mick’s other birthday cakes…

Lynne Klock is MOM and she is the “think tank” behind all of these cake creations – She always comes up with fun themes and creative design ideas. She usually comes up with the ideas and my job is to make it come to life … with sugar! :) So the difficult task of coming up with an idea for her cake is all on her husband, Gary. Here is Lynne’s birthday cake this year…

We actually went a little “simple” with her theme this year because there were so many other crazy cakes for the other family members…Here are some of Lynne’s past cakes!

Gary is Lynne’s husband and a great guy – he is musically gifted (best drum player I know!!) and his family nickname is “Hammer”, so these past cakes represent those two themes…

Gary didn’t actually get his own birthday cake this year because his birthday is close to one of the family’s very close friends and they decided instead to surprise her with a fun cake! Seriously, how cool is that? These guys are great…

So here is Tracy with her beach-themed cake. She is also very musically gifted – she plays the flute beautifully in our church’s worship band alongside Gary on the drums. She is also a rock-star zumba instructor and just such a sweet person :) This cake was a secret and was a complete surprise for Tracy¬† – so special!

And lastly, we have Shawn – Shawn is Tracy’s husband and these families have become such close friends. So why not order Shawn a fun (also surprise) birthday cake too?! He is a good sport and a really funny guy – he is at zumba every week supporting Tracy and making us all laugh. He likes to wear sombreros and we have some fun nicknames and inside jokes with him, so this cake ties together all of those fun things… Here it is!

Here he is with the cake and then dipping his fondant “chip” into the strawberry jam “salsa” :)

 

We’ve had so much fun with these cakes over the years and I am so honored to be their cake lady! We worship together, we dance together, we laugh together – and we EAT CAKE together!! Some of the best customers I have right here :)

Love you guys! Thank you so much for your support and for always giving me a challenge :) I can’t wait to see what we come up with next year!!
