An ode to our Mom

Every 4th of July, my mom made a chocolate cake flag cake. She meticulously cut Twizzlers for the red stripes. I just bought the bite-sized ones.

I always hoped she would make it a white cake as I don't like chocolate cake. So this year, as I made my first, I planned to make chocolate to uphold the tradition. Happily for me, when I went to get a cake mix from my pantry, I discovered that I only had white. Too bad so sad. haha.

Ryan (18 months) approves.


Baby Shower

This was for my sister-in-law's shower in May. Laura chose a jungle theme for her baby's room, so I made a giraffe cake. I used 2 9x13 cakes and cut them to shape.

Joshua Daniel arrived 3 days early on June 6. We're so happy to have him in our family :-)

Wedding Cake

Our first wedding cake. It was a big task, but a lot of fun. We were happy with how it turned out. Thankfully, this is one we did together. The flowers are real.
We also did the flowers...

I used a type of fondant for this cake. I covered the cake with green, and then cut out flowers and pressed them on....Andrea
