Phi Theta Kappa

The Phi Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at CPCC here in Charlotte was having their induction of a few hundred college students this afternoon and a friend of mine from Girl Scouts asked me to create a centerpiece cake for their reception. They were expecting over 600, close to 700 guests. Thank goodness I didn't have to make all the sheet cakes for that.
Thank goodness for BJ's wholesale club!
The cake here is a 12", 9" & 6" which should serve around 100 people or so.
She chose almond, chocolate and almond as her cake flavors.
I carved by hand the greek letters for the Fraternity and handmade the number 40 on top along with several stars both made with 50/50 fondant & gumpaste.
The chapter at CPCC was celebrating their 40th Anniversary.

It's a Jungle Out There!

Here is an adorable jungle theme baby shower cake.
Here they are up close, how cute is that Lion!!
I LOVE my clay gun, thank you Nanny!

30th Birthday Surprise!

Here is my delicious chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing with an Oreo filling that I made for a friend who turned 30 this past week. Her best friend and roommate from college was throwing a party in Charleston for a few of their friends.

Ahoy Matey!

"Arrr!" says this pirate ship! Here is a 3D pirate ship I created for our neighbor who turned 4 this weekend. The birthday boy chose a vanilla cake with an oreo buttercream filling and chocolate icing. I painted the lines on the ship and created a small cannon with a few cannon balls on deck made with gray fondant.
One minor flaw, if you look closely you can see where the weight of the front end the ship cause the cake to crack, but with a little icing to "glue" it together, you couldn't tell a difference!

Baby Shower Cake with Cupcakes

With the family get together in Fuquay Varina this past weekend, we also celebrated our newest cousin who was born 5 weeks ago. We did a small family shower and I made a yummy yellow cake with vanilla icing for everyone.
With the left over batter I made cupcakes. I tried to make the cupcakes look like different flowers with all my left over icing that I had. It was quite yummy to say the least!

Easter Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. For our family we did, we went to Fuquay Varina, NC. For those who don't know that is a small town outside of Raleigh. There we visited with family and had 6 babies all under the age of 3 together doing an Easter egg hunt together. What fun we had, really, we did! The kids got to spend some time with their cousins and meet their newest cousin Ryan who was born 5 weeks ago. Well, before we left I decided to make some Easter cookies and had Olivia and Nicholas decorate some flower pots for each family to put the cookies in.

I wish I had gotten some better pictures of the cookies, but as you can see there is a bunny cookie, a cross, a tulip and an Easter egg. We also gave each family a packet of flower seeds so they can plant flowers in their gardens.
