3 Orders in One Weekend!!!

Oh my what a weekend! I had 3 cake order this weekend, and all I can say is OH MY!

Lets start with the suitcase cake. Yes, I know, again! Well, I have to say it has been a hit, so that one was another fun one to do! Jackie was throwing a party last minute for 4 military members who were either headed off to another base, or another squadron on base. She was last minute with her party and of course I jumped in and said of course I would do the cake for her! The suitcase had the new bases, or squadrons as the "stickers". Here's a look:

This cake was marble with my usual icing... Jackie emailed me to tell me that "The cake was wonderful. It was a BIG hit of the party! ... Thank you for all you have done for us! Jackie" I was so excited to hear it was big hit! I love to hear that the cake was a fun center piece of any party! That's why I love to do what I do! I enjoy hearing other peoples parties just became to talk of the town do to the awesome cake.. well, Jackie I would like to say thank you for giving me another chance at this very fun cake! Let me know if you need another one, I have a few new ideas for the next one. ;)

Well, I did say there was 3 orders. So on to the next one! This one was a lot of fun to create. It was a HUGE challenge but I want to thank Daniela for giving me a chance, and later a second chance to create it! So lets start from the beginning! The cake idea was a baby block for a baby shower. I was super excited because I haven't done a baby block or a baby shower cake yet! So, I was so over the top with this cake... ok well let me just show you:

It couldn't have come out better... well... then I delivered the cake... and I got the worst email any baker could get. Daniela had gotten the cake home and it started to fall apart.... weird I thought, but I looked at some of the photos she sent me and all I could think was "oh my gosh all that work and that's what happened... oh no"... I felt horrible. So, she asked me to come fix it, and when I got there it took me a minute to just take in what I saw... However, after a little work, some sweating over it, and a few good laughs... the cake looked just like new! I worked my magic (or maybe luck) and it was back up and running.

I checked in with Daniela after the party to see how the cake held up and she let me know that "... every thing went well, thank you for asking the cake looked great and she loved it and in the end I think that's all that matters, don't you think?" I agree with Daniela, the customer has to be happy. I was glad I could get down there, fix the situation, and hopefully make a new friend! I thank you Daniela for being so relaxed with me and being way too kind... I really appreciate a truly great person like you in the world. Ill make a cake for you anytime!

The final order of the weekend was my favorite one to create. It was a Cookie Monster cake and cupcakes! I was laughing and enjoying every minute of this fun creation. Stephanie wanted a fun cookie monster cake for her one year old son including cupcakes as favors. I think you just need to see how this one turned out, I think you will laugh just as hard as I did when I was done with it:

I also did the cupcakes, but I didn't get a great picture...:

Now you know why I just couldn't stop laughing when I was done with this one. Stephanie thank you for letting me have some fun with this one! I really have to say this was the first time I could step back and really want to eat my own creation! She also emailed me back and said: "Everyone loved the cake and the cupcakes. Thanks again for a beautiful cake and cupcakes! You're awesome. Stephanie" No thank you Stephanie for letting me laugh a little, and create something fun for once... not to mention the left over cookies... my husband thanks you for that!

Overall, the weekend was a building block (lol) to new ideas, new cakes, and a lot of learning! Thanks you to everyone who helped me through this... Thank you!!!!
