Birthday Cakes

This past month I was asked to make three birthday cakes for friends and family. I just thought I would post pictures of them since I never did get around to doing that at the time I made them. Well, the sleepover cake I made last night. That's what made me think to post more pictures.
Here's a picture of the birthday cake I made for my friend and co-worker Charlotte, well part of the cake anyways. I was in the process of making it, as you can see. The yummy cheesecake filling was a hit! It did taste pretty good, if I do say so myself. :)
Flash on!
Flash off!

And this is the Elmo cake my sister asked that I make for Cali's birthday. I have to admit, I was really excited to be able to make the cake. I think it turned out pretty good, though I think I could've done better (my hand was getting tired near the end, lol).
And this sleepover cake is the cake I finished last night. My co-worker asked me this week if I'd be willing to make her daughter's birthday cake for her. After looking at all of her ideas she had, we found a cake that she LOVED. So, this is the final product! I took the idea she gave me, and changed up a few things that I didn't like about it. I have to admit, at first I didn't want to make this particular cake. The picture of it was ugly, so alterations were absolutely necessary. I'll post the original photo down below at the very bottom. And I was also able to find plenty other sleepover cakes as well that did look better and took a few ideas from them as well (the hairdos of the girls for instance). If you pay close attention, you can see they're laying on pillows (marshmallows :)).

Here's the original pic. Yuck!And this is another picture of that cake, now do you see why I hesitated in wanting to recreate this?

Cali Turns 2!

I just wanted to wish my little niece (and baby of the family), Cali, the bestest birthday evah! Ah, they grow soooo fast. I love you Cali girl, you're such a sweet little girl and I'm so lucky to know you. I hope you love your present that your Aunt Tara got for you. :)

Happy B-Day Joey!!!

Happy, happy, birthday. May all your dreams come true, I wish it was my birthday so I could party too. Ole! (to be sung with gusto) :) Thanks for being such an awesome bro in-law! Luv ya!!!

P.S. this is one of the few pictures I have of you, but I think it's a good one. I knew you'd love the girls' cupcake maker almost as much as they did, lol.

Photocopy Me

Don't I look so angelic?!? I like to think so. I wasn't smiling at first (in the last photo), but then started laughing while I was being photocopied, lol. Whoops! I tried my hardest not to press my face up against it, as I don't know who or what has been copied on this thing, but I failed miserably (ewie). You never know! Hee hee So yes, my nose looks a bit smushed in the first photo, that's not what my new nose looks like for real, lol. I gotta get myself one of these bad boys!

I was recently asked to make another baby shower cake for a co-worker of mine, Diana. Tomorrow morning is when we're throwing the surprise shower for her. This is the design of the cake we finally settled on, and I wanted to make sure to use the colors that Diana had chosen for the baby's room, etc. I can't imagine too many people wanting to chow down on cake at 8:00 in the morning, but I'm sure there will be a few. :)
I'm still learning, and I always make a few mistakes, but with time I'm sure I'll get better.

This last picture is the one that I saw on the internet that I used for the design of the cake. I just thought I'd post this to show where I got it from, although I did make a few changes.
