Cakes Cakes and more Cakes!

My second week off work, has been a very busy one. I have had more cakes due this week than I ever have had before. Which is really exciting, because I started off the month not having any due.

For some reason I just love this photo, it pretty much sums up how my week went. In case you are wondering in the buckets is frosting and fondant. In the walmart sacks is cake mix, and all of the rest of the stuff on the table would be cake boards, cake sketches, and other misc. cake things.

The week started off with my little brother's 16th Birthday. And what else would a 16 year old want for a cake?? Monster Energy drink cake!! When I asked my little brother what kind of a cake he wanted he said, "Monster!" So I immediately think of the big blue/green monster from Monster's Inc.....Sully! And I thought, he is SO weird!!! Why in the world would he want a Monster's Inc cake? That is SO un-cool! So as I prepared to make him a Sully cake, my mom called and I was talking to her about it, and she clarified he wanted the "Monster Energy Drink" as a cake. Could you imagine me showing up with a huge Sully cake in front of all of his friends, he probably would have never talked to me again!! In my world of Dora and wonderpets, if you tell me you want a Monster cake, I am just going to think of that big blue/green monster! Sorry! That's just how it goes around here!

This is a close up view of the wedding cake I made for Wesley's sister Danielle. I must admit I wasn't too excited about this one, I just could not envision it. But it turned out so pretty.

This was Wendall's grooms cake. He is a hunter if you couldn't guess. My boys loved this one! They stole the deer off the cake when we were cutting into it. Hee hee! This cake was by far one of my favorites because I actually got to eat this one and it was so delish! It was chocolate cake with a chocolate mocha maple frosting. And it was so moist it just melted in your mouth....Divine!

This is the full view of Danielle's cake. Turned out pretty good, it even survived the way down from the house. The wedding was about an hour away from our house at a Lake. This cake was Vanilla with Buttercream frosting. Classic Wedding cake!

And for those of you not on the Twilight Saga bandwagon. This cake is a Twilight cake, it is based off the four book covers. I made this cake for my dear sweet cousin Jadynn, she turned 8 this year and loves Twilight. So I was really excited to make this one, because I too love Twilight. This cake turned out better than I thought, I had no idea how I was going to make the chess piece or the apple.

And last but not least.....this lovely little cake is one I made for a baby shower. This one kind of grew on me, I would have loved it more had it been in fondant. I am getting so used to making cakes in fondant, that I really don't like just the plain buttercream ones anymore. But this one turned out just beautiful and simple. I love the colors in this one. Very classy!
