Romantic Ruffles and Flowers

This is just too pretty to not share! Romantic ruffles and a garden assortment of peonies, roses and hydrangeas are a lovely way to start the summer season. My assistants Lexi and Sara did an amazing job with the ruffles! We all chipped on on the flower production, handmaking all those lovely flowers. Here's a close up of some of the flowers.

I think I'm finally happy with my roses. When I first started out, I thought roses would be the easiest of the flowers to make, but I soon learned it's easy to make but not easy to make look natural.
Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend!

More Cakes for Kids: Fancy Nancy and Angry Birds

We always have fun making kids cakes here at the shop! It gives us the opportunity to get really creative and crafty. These 2 cakes are relatively recent - I just haven't been so good about blogging lately. The Fancy Nancy cake was for 2 sisters with close birthdays. My daughters love the Fancy Nancy books, so I was eager to make this cake and bring the character to life.
The Angry Birds cake could really be for anyone. It seems like people of all ages play the game. This particular cake was for a 4 yr old girl, but it could easily be for a 40 yr old guy. My youngest daughter wants it for her wedding cake. We'll see what she thinks in 25 years.
