Welcome Baby Samantha!

This weekend I hosted an "all family" baby shower to welcome our newest family addition, baby Samantha. My sister in law, Aileen and Mark Turner are the proud parents of this beautiful baby girl. And, of course, I made a special cake for the occasion. This was a 10" moist vanilla rum cake filled with cream cheese/vanilla pudding and fresh strawberries. It was so good!

I made these letters for Samantha's room. I love scrapbooking, though I have not had the time to scrapbook or the energy! in a long time. I'm glad I made time to make these for baby Sam.

Oh Baby!

I made this cake for my friend Jen who was hosting a baby shower. I matched the colors and some patterns of the baby's room decor and bedding and made a sweet little baby for the cake topper. The bottom cake was a yummy chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache, vanilla buttercream, Snickers candy and caramel. The top tier was a moist almond cake filled with vanilla buttercream. Jenny called me after the party to tell me that everyone loved the cake and that the chocolate cake was amazing! Jenny you are always so sweet!

Sara's Birthday Cake

I created this tropical luau cake as a gift from Paula to Sara. Paula wanted me to make her friend a special cake to celebrate her 30th birthday.
