FUN CAKES: February 2011

Looking for a yummy yet masculine cake? Try a Basket o' Berries. There's nothing fru-fru about chocolate and strawberries. Made this one for a guy in Clay's office ... and I just had to deliver it around lunch time (and had a wonderful lunch w/ Clay).

GO DAWGS !!!!! Blake is the son of one of my former brides and he turned 1 year old. Blake's mom and dad are huge Georgia fans, and apparently so is Blake. Happy 1st Birthday !

I've been creating McCain Childress' cakes all of her little life. Her 5th birthday was celebrated in grand style ... a Toy Story birthday featuring Jessie. There were crafts, games, real pony rides, and a special appearance by Jessie.

Ramey is another special little girl in my life who I've had the pleasure of creating her birthday cakes also. Ramey spent her birthday with friends at Monkey Joe's, but insisted on a Hello Kitty cake.

WEDDING: Alexander-Tullis, Berkley Hills Country Club, 2/26/11

VENUE: Berkley Hills Country Club
BRIDE and GROOM: Christy Alexander and Jack Tullis

All brides are beautiful ... but Christy sure took the prize this weekend. She was stunning and looked so calm and sure of herself as she walked toward Jack.

I met Christy back in May of 2010. Simple and elegant was what she wanted her cake to look like. A grey ribbon bordered each tier with a wide spaced single dot design. Pink and white bunch roses (also known as tea roses) were placed here and there.

The groom cake .... now that was fun to create. A combination of tuxedo, plain white and chocolate, and drizzled strawberries were placed all over this two tier fudge iced creation. YUMMY !!!!

WEDDING: White-Ledbetter, Reunion Hall, 2/19/11

VENUE: Reunion Hall, Hoschton
BRIDE and GROOM: Kelly White and Greg Ledbetter

I never got the chance to meet Greg, but Kelly is the type of person that I would welcome into my home at any time just to sit and have a cup of coffee with, talk cake with, and laugh. I really feel comfortable with her. One of these days, I'm sure you'll see Kelly (and her friend Susan) accompany me on a cake delivery or two.

Kelly came in with a particular design in mind, she wanted red detail; I talked her into white detail; you can see who won ... : ) I think her cake came out gorgeous, I just love the feather details, and when I went back to pick up the plateau and the end of her evening, there was no cake left (which is a great compliment) and everyone commented on its taste and beauty.
