I haven't been blogging so much this past month because with all the end of the school stuff and then being just plain ole lazy because I didn't have to get the kids out the door every morning. And I got to admit, it's been super nice! But I wanted to share some of my cakes that have also been keeping me busy that I haven't posted them. This first one is a Mythbusters cake that I did for a friend's son's birthday. I really loved the logo part, if I do say so myself! ;)
I put caution tape and different types of warning signs around the cake. I wanted to make the 7 stand up, but couldn't get it just right. So I came up with the flames coming out of the back of it, which I think looks really awesome anyway.
For some reason Blogger isn't letting me separate these two pictures so I have to put the caption up here..any who....If you remember from my last post Miriam turned 8 this year, which in my house means BIRTHDAY PARTY!!! We had it at a bowling alley, which was super cool, but only 3 friends from school were able to make it, not cool. Still the cake was a big hit, and that's what matters, right? I'm just kidding! She had a blast and with the fact that she has so many siblings she didn't even seemed phased that not that many kids from her class came. But more on that later in a posted dedicated to her party...She wanted a My Little Pony cake. I searched Pinterest and found several, but the one below this picture won the coin toss. I really loved the clouds and flowers, but I had to "dumb it down" for me in regard to the sculptured ponies and huge sign on the top. I figured the little figurines were the perfect size and I wasn't going to get anywhere near this so I took the short cut. Also it was special because Miriam got to help me with it. I put her to work cutting out flowers and leaves and even drawing the vein down the middle of each leaf for more detail. She did good, I was proud of it, and was secretly happy that we brought home half of the bottom cake...MORE FOR ME!! Hopefully I will start to get more orders and begin building on some clientele here.
