Kaitlin, Logan and their families were so sweet and so much fun to work with!

From the “Minions” themed bridal shower cake…

…to the sculpted Virginia Tech Hokie Bird groom’s cake…

…they certainly kept me busy! :) And with such fun projects!!

Kaitlin and Logan’s wedding reception was held at the beautiful Cameron Estate Inn in Mount Joy, PA. They chose to go with a 4-tier, rustic buttercream iced wedding cake embellished with fresh flowers provided by Floral Designs of Mount Joy. It was so pretty. Here are some great shots of the cake from Brittney Kreider Photography

You can view more of Brittney’s photos from their wedding day on her blog!

I was amazed at all of the personal touches the family was able to incorporate into the reception! They had an adorable candy bar, beautiful centerpieces, and even a personalized hope chest! Every detail represented Kaitlin and Logan’s relationship in some way.

 

Congratulations Kaitlin & Logan – it was an absolute pleasure working with you and your families on all of your wedding sweets! I look forward to working with you again in the future!

January & February 2015

Wow, 2015 has already been a whirlwind! I have such great customers that keep me BUSY!  I’ve had so many fun projects already! Here’s a collection of some of these fun cakes, cookies and cupcakes that have kept me busy over the past several weeks! (:

Sugar snowflakes! One was a smash cake for a little girl named Claire who turned 1! The other was for lovely lady named Sheri who turned 40!

Baby showers! The cake with the fondant elephant toppers was an adorable little cake that just made me smile (: And the lion king cub cake was inspired by the invitation – I had creative freedom with it and the baby lion cub was so much fun to make! Hand-made toppers are one of my favorite projects!

Another first birthday – this one was football themed! The party was actually the same weekend as the super bowl, so it was great timing! The football cake was for little Easton to smash into and the cookie favors were for his guests (:

Next up we have Braden’s birthday!! I have done this little guy’s birthday for the last 3 years – WOW! You can see his past three cakes here! This year, the theme was Boston Bruins – I did a tiered cake with fondant Zamboni, jersey, hockey stick & puck, and the cutest little skates! All hand-made (: And then each of his little buddies got a cookie favor with their name on it to take home! How fun!

Here are a couple fun and colorful kid’s cakes! Eli loves the Lorax so for his 2nd birthday, his grandma ordered a cute cake that would make him smile! And for Lexi and Jan’s combined birthday cake, I made an “under-the-sea” themed cake with a cute fondant turtle on top! (:

This cake was for a great guy who loves the outdoors and camping with his family – Dr. Woodward! The cake was a surprise gift from his staff – I delivered this cake and actually got to see his reaction, as he accidentally walked into the room before the big “reveal” haha – everyone had a good laugh about it and I was so glad I could be there for that moment (:

These sweets for twins Reeden and Vivian’s 2nd birthday! They had a birthday party on Valentine’s Day weekend -how fun! Both Reeden and Vivian got a personalized cake to smash into, the sheet cake was for the parents, and cupcakes for the kids! I thought this was such a cute theme for a twin boy and girl’s birthday (:

This cardinal cake was a challenging one – but I loved every bit of it! I hand painted the birds and the branches, airbrushed a little shadow and then added some berries and snow. At the venue, I finished it with some fresh evergreen sprigs – it was beautiful. This cake was for a retirement party at Rich Valley Golf in Mechanicsburg, PA.

And most recently – Valentine’s Day cookies! I really put my heart into these and they were handed out among a couple special groups of women. Spreading the love, one cookie at a time (:
