Lavender Wedding

My mom knew someone having a very small wedding and wanted them to have a little wedding cake. I made this white cake and frosted it. Then I piped on flowers and used a paint brush to make it look like embroidery. I made a lavender ribbon and bow to add the bride's color. It was very simple but turned out nice.

We wanted the bride to have a bouquet also. I have helped my sister do flowers and know just enough about it to come up with a simple bouquet and a boutonniere. I just went to Sam's club and had to work with the flowers they had on hand. This is what I came up with.

February Cakes

Last week I made two cakes that I had done before. This flower cake was for a little girl's dress up tea party. The girls came to pick it up with their mom and were so cute in their fancy dresses. This cake is turning into a favorite.

I also made a cake for twin boys that were getting baptized. Their mom had won the cake in an auction I had donated to, to help a friend's dad with medical expenses. I was so glad to help.
