do you like nuts??

the request for the cake at one of the office's in town this month was a butter pecan cake. i hope it turned out ok. i thought i burned the pecans, and then i burnt one of the cake. i asked Ken to taste it and he spit it out on the floor and then laughed and said it was really good. SIGH of relief. i didn't want to be starting it all over again at 10pm! it was three layers high and had a butter pecan frosting. you most certainly do not want to encounter this cake with a nut allergy of any kind! i thought it was pretty good though... as i did sample the cake tops and some icing! you know me. :)

wanna play?

i was asked to to a toy story cake for a girlfriend of mine. he little man turned 5!!! she was a life saver as she had a plan as to what she wanted AND.... AND, this is the best part, she was supplying the figures for the cake! don't get me wrong, i love to make things and such, but such detailed characters would have been very expensive and would have taken FOREVER. so i used the figures.

i loved how it turned out! it was one of my faves to do. :)

it's been a while again.... excuses, excuses

ok. well i have been busily updating my other blog, and i wanted to update my favorite blog of the two i do. this one make me really happy. so at the end of Februaryi did a cake for one of the sweetest teenagers i know. she is actually only 3 3/4's as she was born on a leap year. seriously, i love her and her smile if infectious. she was having a "chocolate" party. so to keep with the theme of it, she wanted a chocolate cake. so i did a dense chocolate cake, with white chocolate cream filling and it was covered in a crusted chocolate icing. i, like you already know, don't LOVE chocolate cake, but i think i would have like this one. so here is it!!
