January Business

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.
