NCSU Graduation Cake

I made this fun cake for my friend Tracy's hubby, Jorge. He graduated from NC State a few weeks ago and Tracy threw him an AHHHMAZING party. Not only did we get to celebrate with BBQ and fun people, but we were able to play on the nearby playground with Landon. Also, check out the super cute candy buffet Tracy made....she went all out!

The cake was buttergolden with buttercream and fondant details. I made the graduation cap out of rice krispy treats and covered it with fondant.

Congrats Jorge! Check out Tracy's trendy dress....she is my fashion inspiration. I remember being in carpool together (just want to add that it was at 7:15 AM) and she was always "dressed to the nines".

Landon also had the time of of life from playing on the playground to having his first lollipop!

Giraffe Baby Shower Cake

Oh boy, I am so excited to blog about this cake! It is one of my all time fave so far. I love yellow and gray so when I got this order I was super excited. This cake was made for our good friends, Blake and Amanda, who are having a baby girl this summer. I also made their wedding cake a few years back so this was an extra special cake.

Isn't that giraffe family the cutest ever?! Amanda's mom asked me to make a giraffe family on the top to represent Blake, Amanda and baby Harper. I based the design off of the invitation that Amanda's sister made. The flavor - white almond with buttercream and fondant. We can't wait to meet Harper!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Cake

I recently made this cake for an old college friend's little boy who turned 5. I was so surprised that I got an order for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle cake because those guys bring back memories from MY childhood. Anyways, believe it or not, they are becoming popular again.
