Congratulations Elena & Kris!

Yesterday was insane! But we had so much fun! Elena and Kris had a vision for a rustic backyard style wedding, with some elegant touches thrown in. My team was amazing this week. I had so many assistants that wet above and beyond!! (and they all looked nice and rested, unlike yours truly!!)

Congratulations Elena & Kris!! May the two of you have a wonderful life together. And to your mother? A huge thankyou for being such a wonderful hostess!!! On her 39th wedding anniversary no less!

I will have to sit down this week and edit the shots I took with my big Nikon. And put up a proper post, you know, with details!!

Burlap & Twine

Spending my Friday evening with burlap bags & twine in preparation for a wedding next weekend! I've actually taken the majority of this past week "off" for personal crafting time. I will post more about that another day. It's super exciting!!

And tomorrow I am going to scope out a location for a huge wedding in September.

Lots of exciting things going on around here!!!

Kindergarten Graduation Cake

As one of my final "duties" this week as one of the room moms for my youngest, I was asked to do the graduation cake (a big task! 4 classes, two in the morning, two in the afternoon)

As I already had a cake this past weekend, we came up with making one cake for display and to cut for the afternoon class, and two basic "cutting cakes" for the morning class.

The theme was "Nursery Rhymes", and they had a whole production. It was really adorable. I incorporated 4 into the cake:

"Little Girls and Little Boys"
"Hey Diddle Diddle"
"Mary Mary Quite Contrary"
"Baa Baa Black Sheep"

Kids loved it!! Everything was made of either sugar or chocolate. It was hard to cut it up!!

Graduations are happening! We have some fun cakes on our books! Call early, we are booking quite fast these days.

Whew, busy in the kitchen on this very early Sunday morning!

Here are a couple of teasers of the bits and pieces for the Kindergarten graduation cake. Very bright and colorful!!

In still puzzling it all out, but I have all day tomorrow to iron out those details. I have to say, it's so odd to work on a Saturday night into Sunday!!! Sunday is typically my "off" day.

Oh well. My last child is only going to graduate Kindergarten once, he is so so so excited about it! (and the act that mommy is making a huge cake for all 4 classes!)

Hand Painted Baby Shower Cake

I hand-painted the cheetah print on this one. Also copied a pair of baby Nike shoes for the top!

This one was fun, bold, different, unexpected! I love when my clients want something so unique and different!

Stay tuned for my HUGE project! I was asked to perform my final "room mom" duty for Kindergarten. It is going to be a late night tonight and long day tomorrow!!
