A Cake, A Package, and An EMEM Revealed

The finished product. The bottom two layers are fondant and the top is the "smash" cake in buttercream for the sweet 1 year old!

Yes, I sketched, piped and brushed this tiara all by hand. Unfortunately I also broke it pulling it off the wax paper. Frosting can be manipulated and repaired, lucky for me!

See, Brooke, they all have found a good home! Thanks again.

LOVE these letters!

Brynnlee has claimed these magnets and trys to take them everywhere! So cute!

Here are the real answers.... in case you didn't know...

1. How did the husband and I meet? Technically- you could say we were introduced on the internet but we MET at my apartment as he picked up me and my roommates for a weekend of rafting in Jackson Hole.
2. Take a stab at my middle name. Marie
3. Do I have any siblings? If so, how many? Yeah, like 1 brother and 7 sisters...
4. What are my favorite things to do? lay around and do nothing followed closely by snowboarding, wakeboarding, and reading a good book
5. What is my favorite type of music? I like most everything...
6. Am I shy or outgoing? hmmm... I think I'm outgoing but I can be shy once in a while
7. Am I a rebel of a rule follower? Please! I'm a total rule follower.
8. What are some of my special talents (or superpowers)? Keeping cool as a cucumber, or at least pretending to be, even when people make me want to hit myself over the head with a crowbar
9. If I were stranded on an island, what is the one thing I would bring? Lindsay had a great answer with the iphone pulling double duty, but are there any "other's" on the island blocking my internet signal??
10. What is one word that describes me? Ipercool- I don't know what it means..... but it sounds like me right?

Wow, that cake looks fabulous! I am impressed and envious of your talent.

I love the Valentine's decorations. So cute!

I didn't offer any answers to your MEME quiz, but I enjoyed reading the guesses and answers. I didn't realize you and Jeremy met on the internet. How long have you two been together? The internet has only been around since, like 1997, right?

Amazing job on the cake. I still think you are practically perfect in every way.

The cake is amazing! Which sweet little one year old was the recipient?

You rock.

Jan said...

You lucky winner you. I love the goodies. And the cake. Straight from the Food Network Channel. You take the cake Heather. My arms are out shouting "Heather is Amazing". Nobody heard, but the earth did vibrate slightly.

Kristy said...

That cake turned out amazing! I love that the one year old can smash the top part only.

"Vern" said...

I'm just not convinced the one-year-old can truly appreciate the cake as much as...say...I would. Do you ship out of state?

debsters said...

You are oozing with talent, the cake is magnificent. I love the smooth, clean lines of fondant. Truly impressive!

Sarah said...

I can think of a couple of events coming up that I would love to have one of your cakes for. You go girl! You're rocking the cake decorating scene. I'm thinking some business cards need to be handed out soon.

Shayla said...

The cake turned out awesome, I need me some classes if I can eventually learn to do that!

I have to say, I liked my answers to your questions better. (Did you ever read them? I answered pretty late.)

Melissa said...

Awesome cake! Aren't those tiara's so fun to make?? :)

Ms. Kristen said...

I would like a price list please....birthdays, preschool graduations, anniversary etc! So yummy to the tummy and the eye!

meohmyers said...

Gorgeous!!! You are amazing with fondant! Hope you are keeping a portfolio handy of your work. You're going to be one busy cake making machine once you start advertising!

Holly Homemaker said...

Love the cake! I like to think I'm okay at decorating cakes, but now I know the truth....I stink!!!

Any special fondant tips?

Ro's Lumpy Breast said...

I am reading your blog and the kids just saw the cake you made and they are screaming, 'yummy cake, yummy cake we want some". I had to tell them that the cake wasn't for them.

Kris said...

That cake looks awesome, and I couldn't even tell that you broke the tiara. You did a great job and hopefully you got some good money for it. Love the real answers to your questions too!

Brooklet said...

Wow. WOW! That is crazy how fast you become a professional cake decorator- it seems like you just took a cake decorating class and all the sudden your are producing stunners like this!! Definitely get started on business cards (and a cake blog).
