Cakes I have made

I was a little bored, and just goofing off here on the computer. I got to looking in some of my folders and thought I'd post these photo's of cakes I have made.

Growing up I used to love to watch my Aunt Maryjane make these huge wedding cakes. They were pretty much the same style for every wedding she did, all white with multiple layer cakes surrounding the big show stopper of 7 double layers, with lot's of bridges and stairways. Every one had the same little open book looking cake in the very front, with the bride and grooms name on it. Of course I thought they were fabulous, and they were. I was in awe that something could be created out of cake!

I remember the first one I ever decorated, my daughters first birthday cake almost 24 years ago. I had made a Cabbage Patch doll cake, and had only one pastry bag. It took me 7 hours to pipe 7 different colors of frosting onto that little cake! Obviously I had more time back then, and patience.

While my Aunt passed away quite a few years ago, I still think of her every time I make one, wishing I could send her a pic or two. She was such an inspiration to me. I don't think I'll ever be as good as she was...but I like trying.

This one was for a "Pirates" birthday

A baby shower for a little girl to come named Zoey
This one was last week for fire truck loving James
Loren loved to read the "Goosebumps" childrens books
Stephanie is quite the accomplished quilter

She even saved all my fondant creations!
This was my own wedding cake
I make a cake for my mothers church every year

My daughter loves Dora, who always happens to be near the water
