Cake Alert!!

So, last week was ridiculous. I had three, THREE, complicated cakes for the weekend and was going out of my brain. I was really excited to do them all because they were fun themes and that makes it fun to do. I was going to post about it during the week, but one of the cakes was for my friend Rob's birthday and I didn't want to spoil the surprise. His cake was a Rush (the band, not the blowhard) themed cake and I made the band out of fondant. It was tricky and I went through two Geddy Lee's before it was all said and done but in the end, it was worth every second. He was really excited and seemed to really love it. The second cake was a photo album for 60 people, which is a pretty big cake to handle. I don't do many cakes over 30-40 servings so this was a nice challenge. It was a 75th birthday cake and I did "polaroids" of the birthday lady's various jobs and things through her life. A "this is your life" theme, if you will. The little polariods turned out really cute and I was happy and the recipient was happy so that's what matters. It wasn't as wackadoodle as many of them and it was nice to have an opportunity to do something a little more simple and elegant. I hope they all enjoyed it.

Last but not least, was a baby shower cake that was some gifts with a baby on it. It was tres adorable and I was really pleased. It was also less whack, more modern than normal and I was happy to do it. As usual, check out the pics at


PS: I forgot to add that Max decided to add the the stressful FUN TIMES last week by whacking me in the eye with the remote control, giving me a nice shiner. Super awesome.
