My Loves

These are my sweet boys, the ones I spend my days with. My big boy is Chase Robert and he is 8. Wow eight, time you are a thief! The little guy is our long awaited Kruse William and he is 14 months. He is our wild climber. He already jumps outta the crib (I kid you not) and it's lowered all the way down already...These boys are my world, I love them more than cake. And you all know how much I love cake!

Jungle/Monkey Cake

My bestie's little boy was turning one, and he loves monkeys. So I came up with this cute jungle/monkey design. It is three layers of chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream, yum! I made both of the little monkeys out of modeling chocolate and the little bananas out of fondant. It was actually my husbands idea to spell out his name with the bananas, cute!

Mosaic Tile Cake

This cake was for my sister-in-law Kristin's wedding, same one I made the dessert table for. It was a labor of love, let me tell you! My husband, my son and I were also in the wedding. So needless to say, I was a busy lady. I started this cake the Thursday before the big day. It was going great...until I dropped the bottom tier on my kitchen floor! It was completely done, ready to assemble no less. So I had to bake and decorate another one. By this time its Friday afternoon. I ducked out long enough too go to the rehearsal then got right back to working on this baby. After pulling an all nighter, I got it finished just under the wire. With enough time to shower and make it to my hair appointment!! But, after all the craziness, I think it turned out great!

100 Days of school cake

My oldest son, Chase, had a 100 days of school party. His teacher, the wonderful Mrs. Adams asked me to make the cake. "Nothing fancy, just make a little cake for the class" yeah, ok...I always go overboard, there was A Lot of cake left. But the kiddos loved it. (Just ignore the screen shot photo, lol).

No more Facebook

So, I have not been here in a long while. But, this will be the new permanent home for The Cake Mistress since I will no longer be using facebook for business. Its great for friends and family stuff but I kept missing lots of posts in the business page ( uh...not good for business, ya know) Anyway, lots of past cakes to come!

Lego Cake

So last week I had a request for a Lego cake for a little guy turning 6. He also requested that one of the layers be rice krispy treat, yummo! I think it turned out quite adorable if I do say so myself! Stay tuned another practice cake coming soon:-)
