GOOD FRIENDS

I feel especially blessed this week.

I was visited by one of my sister-friends. You know, the kind who knows everything about you and loves you anyway.  She and her amazing family were here all the way from Seattle.  Oh, how I love that girl.

And then, yesterday, we went to a birthday party for a sweet 3 year old who belongs to some of our closest friends.  Friends who now go back over 11 years!  That is hard to believe.  Stacy is the beautiful, brilliant photographer who took our family portraits last fall and we are finally able to return the favor with a special cake for little Nolan.  He specifically requested an Arthur cake and I was happy to oblige!  The cake features Arthur and some of his closest friends, along with their treehouse hangout - all done in painted chocolate.

I encourage you to check out Stacy's blog http://www.myliminalmoments.com/.  Her writing is as beautiful as her photography.   
Be sure to check out my full gallery above and sign up for my blog feeds through your email.  And by all means, contact me if you have cake needs!
Until next time!

DARTH VADER IS SWEET

Given that on a daily basis, I am surrounded by boys of a certain age, I knew it was only a matter of time before another opportunity would arise to turn Star Wars into sugar.

This time, it's for my cousin. A 10 year old, who like most others of his age, loves all things "Force-related".  Thus, cupcakes and chocolate were dedicated to several favorite characters.  Of course, my twins are now asking for a cake with the entire series portrayed, including the Death Star and General Greivous  (the guy with 4 hands and therefore, 4 light sabers).  I guess I'd better get to work figuring out that one, but in the meantime, who knew Yoda tasted so good?

Until next time!
