The things we do for love

A sign-up sheet went around work.
It was a going away party for a fellow employee.

Jeremy noticed a slot for cake was still available.

He claimed that as his contribution.

He brought home a flyer and requested I replicate it on the cake.

Next time I'll keep my fingers crossed in hopes that he just signs up for a side dish

Fondant is hand cut and frosting is freehanded (aka: a huge pain in my booty).
The sky is a watercolor treatment, but that was fun!

Summer Dayz

We didn't spend nearly enough time lounging poolside this summer.... but there's always next year.

Cake Anyone?

A few things I've been up to this summer.....

A birthday cake for our good friend.
He is a VW enthusiast to the core
and I replicated his bus.
With only 26 hours notice...
I'm calling it a success.


Wedding Cake
Turns out the father of the bride went to high school with Jeremy.
True story.


Cake for a reception.
Simple outside, but the inside
was chocolate pound cake filled with dark chocolate ganache.

I think I gained 3 lbs that weekend eating cake scraps turned cake burritos*.

*If you aren't familiar with cake burritos come over and let me enlighten you!

Summer has been good to us,
and we plan on squeezing every last minute out of our remaining 10 days.
