Some of My Favorite Cakes

As I sit and try to choose photos and events for a post to my blog, I keep coming across photos of some of my favorite cakes for some of my favorite people.  What a better "let's get up to date post" than showcasing just a few of those cakes.

This is a cake I did for a friend who needed a cake for a 40th birthday party.  It was one of those rare occasions where everything went smoothly and I was very pleased with the end result.  The use of the piroulines really gave the cake a finished look and were a nice compliment to the flavor of the cake... chocolate with raspberry mousse!


 This cake was for another swim mom (back when my daughter was on swim team).  She was having a sleepover party for her 9 year old daughter and wanted the cake to be designed to emulate the pajamas that were gifts for all the  girls. 


I always regretted that I didn't take a picture of the pjs!

Cake for my friend Starla who's living life to the fullest after dealing with some of the worst that life can throw at you.  She is an inspiration for anyone who may be choosing to "waller in self pity"....  Cake was actually for her boyfriend's 40th birthday:)  

This cake makes the short list, not because I am thrilled with the execution, but because it was possibly THE biggest challenge I've had to date.  Silly me thinking "it's a tall rectangle... how hard can it be?".  Wow, was I in for a surprise.  Lovely clients, thank goodness, who were very happy with their cake.  I think I went home, had a shot, and took a nap!
