January was a busy month for cakes. I'm not complaining, I had a BLAST doing them. It started off with a wedding cake I did for a friend of mine from Culinary School. I loved doing this cake.
It was so different and it turned out exactly how I imagined it would. I love it when that happens.
Next up was a cake for the youngest daughter of CJ's sunbeam teacher when we moved here. Her "baby" turned 16 and it wasn't a typical sweet 16 cake...which was fine by me.
I guess she is really into Jack Skelington the Pumpkin King from A Nightmare Before Christmas. This cake turned out pretty cool. What I can't show is that I layered the cake in a way that when she cut into it it was checkered. I LOVED doing this cake.
I then turned my attention to yet another Broncos birthday cake for a boy Spencer and I taught in primary. He is a real Broncos fan and last year I did an orange cake with the Bronco logo on it. This year he wanted it in the shape of a helmet. I think it turned out pretty cool.
I did the carving all by myself, Spencer just printed the template out for me. I must be moving up in my skill???
Last but not least. Last year I did some Elmo cupcakes for a friend of mine for her sons second birthday. This year the theme was Firetruck.
I think it turned out alright. I had been diagnosed with the flu the day I made it so by the end of the day I was just lucky to get it done. I think it turned out pretty good considering.
I love doing cake. I wish I were able to do more, but I'm happy with what I do get to do.
