Can you dig it?

This construction-inspired cake can.

In fact, these machines are hard at work digging out some Oreo dirt.

As I was making this cake my husband asked, “Do you know what all those machines are called?”

Nope, no idea. A digger? A lifter? And…a flatener? Just kidding…I knew that last one was a steam roller. YES.

Woooooolllllllllllffff.

Paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaccccck.

One of my favorite things about Reno is the love that everyone has for the Nevada Wolfpack. As an alumnus of the University of Nevada, Reno I just love when I get to make Wolfpack things.

Like these cupcakes to celebrate a graduate of the College:

Oh, how I just love my edible printer!

I am making a wedding cake later this summer for a bride who moved to Boise for school. And her mom asked me to make Boise State cookies. Ugh, yeah…I’ll get right on that. 😉

Anchors Aweigh!

Aweigh? Yes. Aweigh! As I was trying to figure out if anchors should be possessive or not, I discovered that there is no such thing as anchors away. The more you know.

But this blog is about cakes…so let’s get to it.

As I was making this cake, I thought about how I haven’t made a fondant cake in awhile…it’s been all about the cupcakes and cake pops lately!

I just love the navy and pink together on this nautical cake.

That anchor. Anchors aweigh…away! Seriously. I wanted to throw it away in a deep body of water somewhere…at first it was huge…and awesome. But when I was trying to put it on the cake it was being very nauty-cal! Get it?! It was very fragile and I had to reinforce it…a lot. I knew that I needed a plan B because I was delivering this cake about an hour away. So, plan B…a smaller anchor. And because anything worth doing is worth overdoing, plan C…an anchor that could lay flat on the top of the cake if all else failed…

B, A, C (And we’re not talking blood alcohol content here…these are all my plans).

Clearly, plan B worked out beautifully and the cake made it in one piece (phew!):

The set-up at this shower was just adorable! I can’t wait to see photos from the shower!

Nurse Appreciation Week

Nurses are great.

I was lucky enough to be asked to make some cake pops to celebrate some wonderful labor and delivery nurses.

Nurse hats:

The labor and delivery nurse who requested these also asked for some…different cake pops….due to the nature of her job and what she sees a lot of on the job… and we are not talking babies…must I say more?

 

If you are not easily offended, scroll down to see these…other cake pops!
