He is Risen cake!

An old friend from high school recently got back in touch with me on facebook after finding out we were adopting and she made my day because she first told me that since I last knew her in school, she had come to know the Lord!  What amazing news that was to hear!  She has been so sweet and ordered this three tiered fondant covered cake for easter for her church!  She also ordered two coffee cakes to go along with it for her church's "coffee hour" tomorrow!  She also asked me to make an adoption poster sheet up to set by the cakes so people can find out about our adoption and the fundraisers and such in case they want to help!  What a great heart she has!  This is a chocolate and white cake with buttercream icing underneath fondant and buttercream and fondant decorations!

Gavin's mod monkey 1st birthday cake!

Good friends of our, Chad & Sarah, have an adorable little boy named Gavin!  He is turning one and I am making two different birthday cakes in the same theme for two different parties!  Below are pictures from the first cake!  The second cake I am going to try and get brave and actually hand sculpt a monkey or two for the cake!  Stay tuned to see how that turns out! :0)  I realized after making the smash cake that my friend is probably going to want to kill me later after Gavin eats it because its blue icing and I can just imagine blue everywhere on little Gavin once he's done eating! :0)  Sorry Sarah... :0) heehee
