A weekend of cakes!

I enjoy's really just that simple.  Cookies, brownies, muffins, bread..I love it all.  My favorite though, is cake.  I love decorating cakes.  I've always jumped at the opportunity to make cakes for my family and friends to celebrate any occassion, so my friend suggested I start blogging about it.  This friend also came up with the title of this new blog! 

This past week was my fun baking week.  I had three cakes to make and afterwards, my kitchen definitely showed it.  There was cake batter and icing all over the place...I even found icing on the wall.  I don't know how it got there, but it did.  What can I say...I'm not a very neat baker.  The messier it is, the more fun it is!

Here are two of the cakes I made. 

This cake was for a 12 year old's birthday.  They live in our building and her mom asked me if I would make her cake.  I was so of my first paid cake jobs!  Apparently Emma just loves fake mustaches, so this is the design her mom came up with. 

This cake was for a surpise bridal shower we threw for a friend.  She is PCSing soon and we wanted to make sure she got to celebrate before she moved.  She was quite surprised and the cake got some great compliments! 

I'll post more as I bake more and hopefully I'll learn more and more as I go.  If you have any tips or tricks you'd like to share, please do! 


  1. Nice blog!! :)

    That is so funny that that girl loves fake mustaches. Made me laugh.

  2. Both super cute cakes. Its a good thing you have this talent. Since the cakes at the commissary there are ridiculously expensive. Every cake I ever bought while we lived there was made by another spouse.

  3. I love these cakes, I really need to practice at being better at it. I enjoy baking them but my decorating needs help
