Nike Shoe Groom's Cake

Lovebirds Wedding Cake

Blue and Gold Baby Shower Cake

Cake for Spark Ministries

Another fun project for Spark Ministries  
(you can find out more about therm here:)

They provide birthday celebrations for women who are living in faith-based women's shelters.  What a beautiful and loving gesture by truly beautiful and loving women.  So grateful to be a part of this amazing event.  

This cake is a fake cake - fondant on styrofoam - so the cake will be shipped to their different events around the US.  Hope it travels well and I can't wait to see it all lit up with the sparkler candles!

Nerdy Wedding Cupcakes

Lots of fun cupcakes to celebrate the wedding of two self-proclaimed Nerds.  Here's an assortment of toppers we made.

Birthday Cake for Icing Smiles

Loved, loved, loved working with Icing Smiles, a charity that provides birthday cakes for kids who are in the hospital or are in the middle of medical treatments on their birthdays.  You can find more about them here:

This cake was for a little one who loves swimming, and purple and the swimming pool was made to match the partyware.  Her name was written in braille as she is blind.  

God Bless the good people at Icing Smiles who took a great idea and made it into something REAL, and God Bless this little girl and hope that now she is finished with her cancer treatments that there will be lots more cake and pool time in her future!

The summer that wasn't

Ironic that my last post was May 28th.

Why?  Because it was my last post before May 31st which is when I popped myself off the back of a motorcycle while learning how NOT to stop.  One of those dumb moments in life that could have been MUCH worse. It resulted in  a broken tibia and elbow which netted me a steel plate and a handful of screws in my leg, and LOTS of downtime (6 weeks non-weight bearing), and not a lot else.

I had to cancel 7 cakes that weekend - disappointed a lot of very gracious people who had to scramble to find replacement cakes for graduations and 1st birthdays at the last minute!  With the help of a wheelchair, my daughter and 9 (yes, 9!) friends we were able to eek out 2 cakes the following weekend, but it proved I was pretty much done with caking for a while.

Honestly the broken elbow was the most debilitating when it came to cakes.  Couldn't lift a bowl or scrape frosting out effectively, and typical cake-making maneuvers such as spreading frosting and rolling fondant was excruciating, not to mention that I couldn't lift nor carry cakes.

So grateful for good friends and family who nursed me back to health, vacuumed my floor for me, did my dishes, brought me food and kept me company while doing Physical Therapy in the pool.  So, summer is over and I watched most of it float by as I sat in my recliner.  I've been back at it for a couple of weeks now -- taking things really slow -- I can walk now (ok, it's more like a shuffle), but so glad to be making progress and have my hands back in the sugar!

Western cake for Spark Ministries

Loved, loved, loved doing this cake for Spark Ministry! They provide weekend retreats for women who are living in faith based shelters nationwide.  You can learn more about them here.

This was a big and festive "Sparkle and Spurs" fundraising party -- organized by some amazing women whose generous hugs are as big as their hearts.  

I'm so amazed that organizations like this exist - definitely doing God's work in a very meaningful and fulfilling way and I was so blessed to be just a little part of it!
