I have had several requests lately for cake pops in University of Texas colors. Some were for a college graduation, and some for a birthday party with a football theme. The mom of the birthday boy wanted pom pom cake pops for the girls attending the party...I would have never thought of doing this, but they turned out to be super cute!
This cake was made for a youth pastor's 30th birthday. He has a puppet named "Cheeto" that he uses in his ministry, and he has had the puppet since he was a child. Cheeto had to be incorporated into the cake somehow, and this is what I came up with. Definitely a very special 30th birthday cake, and he loved it!

This cake is for a birthday where the theme is Spring flowers, though it would make a beautiful wedding cake as well. The flowers are hand-painted, and the entire cake is buttercream. This is my favorite cake to date. I hope the birthday girl loves it!

A client of mine was expecting a baby, and wanted cookies to take to the hospital to share with her family, friends, and doctors and nurses. I thought it was such a neat idea to do that! Congratulations to the Ashwood family in welcoming baby Ellis into the world!

I was asked by some very good friends of mine to make a cake and cookies for their gender reveal party. They are big Texas Tech fans, (as am I) and they asked that I make the treats in a Texas Tech theme...football helmets for a boy, and megaphones for a girl. If the baby was a boy, they wanted chocolate filling in their cake, and if it was a girl, strawberry filling. It was very exciting to be the first one to know the gender of their baby, but it was so hard to keep the secret! They were thrilled to find out that their baby will be a boy...baby Owen. Congratulations Maggie and Ryan! I am so thrilled for you guys!
