Booby Alert! Breast Cancer Awareness Cake

                          October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

  In honor of all those who fight to cure cancer I thought I would share a special cake I made.
   The local hardware store, Ward's Do It Center, asked me to make them some sort of breast cake a couple years ago for an auction they were attending for Breast Cancer Awareness.

This is what I decided on. A torso cake with a pretty pink bra seemed perfect. yet I wanted it to stand out, so i made it stand up! Successfully, I am proud to say, it raised the most money there! I wish I had better pictures of it but maybe someone out there does!

I just pray it didn't go to some creep! HA HA HA!

I figured it was art, and for a good cause, not trashy, so I was cool with making it.  My favorite part is all the detail. The lace, tattoo, flowers, and initials. 

This is also gives me a unique opportunity. a different sort of breast cancer awareness. Prevention. Everyone knows to go get checked, but did you know that breast feeding your baby is a cancer fighter?!  Plus the longer you do,  the better it works, adding more and more benefits for you and your baby. Talk to your doctor about it today.

Pretty fun and an honor to help out such a great cause as Breast Cancer Awareness.
So whatever the saying you want to plug in for you to remember, do so now. Go get your mammograms and your paps, done! Use October as your yearly anniversary to do it. Or give yourself a great birthday present and call your doctor today to set it up for the same week. Pretty much all doctors book in advance. So don't use any excuses. Call today!

Have you ever made a dessert for an auction? Have you ever had a cake auction?

Forest Fire Helicopter

This one was for an awesome company who flies helicopters that put out forest fires. Pretty cool huh? 
Now that my husband is a fire fighter, it is even cooler.

All the fire, water, and trees were free hand frosted right on the cake with butter cream. YUM! The blades are made of dark chocolate piped into shape. This custom cake was styled exactly like the picture of the actual helicopter they use. I even got to see it land as I was dropping it off. Super awesome!!!

Camping Cake

                                                                                                      Summer is by far my favorite time of year. AS a family we love to be outdoors. In honor of all things summer, here is a special cake! One of my favorite creations, because of the details, I take pride in sharing my design. This camping cake is actually totally sugar free! I made a special sugar free fondant for one of my diabetic friends. Which ended up sort of shiny and translucent. At first I panicked, but as usual, what I view as a huge mess up, leads to be my favorite part of the creation at hand. The car was fashioned after one her dad had as they were kids. There are even diabetic thin mints for the wheels. Growing up we always went camping. Creating a scene of pure camping joy was so fun, I can't wait to do it again!
 Complete with marshmallows and a fishing pole!

I love the fish in the water.

Then a little edible sparkle to make it glisten. They absolutely loved it! The perfect cake for the perfect outdoor family. If you like it, follow us on facebook and pinterest! Thanks everyone! Don't forget make it a great summer! Go camping!

Leaping Lizards Cake Girl!

On my oldest's fourth birthday, my animal and lizard lover, asked for a chameleon cake. Actually, at first it was a leopard gecko cake, then he changed his mind.

I piped melted white chocolate that I dyed green for the lizards and trees. then I covered the rest in home made butter cream frosting! YUM!

The cupcakes were a hit too with heart sprinkles to match!

Well, I think it was a success!!!

Sponge Bob Cake

This year my six year old son, picked a Sponge Bob cake for his bowling alley party. 
He absolutely loved it!! I swore before he was born, my kids wouldn't watch this show, but...
My funny fire fighter hubby has a quirky silly sense of humor the boys and I share.
We are always laughing and find humor in just about everything. LOVE it! 
So I couldn't put too much of a fight up when the little boys and my bug boy bonded
over this silly yellow sponge's annoying laugh, or oddly smart humor, once you watch it.
I suppose I survived sneaking the Simpsons' and MTV in at a friend,s house, they will survive this too.

One Quack of a Baby Shower

There it is!! The cake I made for my self.
 Actually, this is the very first cake I have actually made for me. Usually it is a birthday or something for someone else, but not today! Well, it sort of is for the baby kicking me from the inside out, I suppose. Oh well!

This party was held at the fire station my hubby works out of. Not planning on making anything but a baby butt cake, my design emerged at about ten o'clock at night. I was working the white fondant, thinking of what color to make the blanket. Envisioning what pattern I could make. Since I was going the easy way and decorated with rubber ducks in cups, I thought I could throw some duck on it. Trying to keep it simple, since I know I can get lost in the details of a cake, I convinced myself it was an easy shape to cut out and it wouldn't take long at all. 

I should have known...

Then, I started thinking about a little fire fighting rubber ducky my boys used to have, when they were babies. I thought, "Oh that would be cute!" Before I knew it, the time had flown by and it was one o'clock in the morning, and I was brushing off edible blue sparkles off of my hands.

    It was totally worth it! This baby butt and baby feet cake were a smashing hit. The fact that it was a firefighter duck cake made it even more special. Thanks me!!

Baby Blocks Cake

Here is the first cake I made for a baby shower. I absolutely love how it turned out!
It is very easy to personalize. For example, the letters on the blocks are from the parents' names. This would be a super fun cake to use as the announcement on the sex of your baby. You could use all sorts of colors to keep everyone guessing. Then when you cut into the cake, it would be blue or pink to show what your bundle of joy will be! 
Being 8 months nearly pregnant, has me thinking about what cake I am going to make for my shower next week. I wish I had the ability to keep a secret. Maybe I could have done a baby sex announcement cake.  But, ya,  I am not very good at keep my excitement. It is super uper duper hard! I would be better to hire a baker and have the doctor just tell them!  Could you do it?

A Firetruck for Buck

This is Buck's truck...

This is Buck's truck on cake.

Any questions?!



Little fire helmets.

Yummy cookies for the wheels.

If you can even see the original picture of this classic fire truck, you can appreciate the work it took to get this done.That dark tiny thing was on my phone and it was the only pic I had to go off of. Again, this is for my favorite customer, a fellow fire fighter named Buck. The inside was chocolate and strawberry with chocolate ganache, then sculpted in fondant.
This was my first fire engine cake I had made so it was pretty nerve racking. Anything for our firefighters though! Thank you to all who serve! This one's for you!

Striped Wedding Cake

These flowers took me over ten hours to make out of fondant. The bride showed me a picture of the flowers she was carrying in her bouquet. Then a picture of a striped topsy turvy cake. This was only my second topsy turvy and my first wedding. I was terrified but determined, ya know. The pressure was on!

I am very proud of how it turned out. The final touch of edible sparkles really made it, well, shine.
