There’s no place like home.

Hmm…I think one of my New Year’s resolutions should be to keep up on my cake blogging. I think I have a backlog of 50 cakes. Oops.

I will try to be better, I promise.

This Wizard of Oz inspired cake was for a baby shower… and I am pretty sure this baby is a couple of months old now.

Anyway, enjoy!

He? She? What will it be?!

If you haven’t heard, gender reveal cakes are my favorite. Do you want to know what makes them even better? Doing one for one of my best friends.

It all started at the ultrasound appointment where I first met the little one:

The blondes in this picture knew what the gender was…but the momma-to-be and her mom had no idea!FullSizeRender

They had two long days to wait before the gender reveal party!

N-E-V-A-D-A You Say…Nevada!

Awww my Alma Mater.

I love every time I get to make something Silver and Blue! Most recently, it has been cake pops.

You want to know how to feel old? Make some cake pops for someone turning 18 and then deliver them to the dorms. HOLY COW. I might only be 10 years older than these kids (only?! yikes) but I felt lost and entirely too old to be setting foot in that place. Oh what a decade will do.

These were for a member of the football team…a linebacker…eating these little cake pops from him mom…I love it!!

And these were for a sweet girl named Katy turning 18:

I thought I’d reminisce about the past UNR stuff I’ve made! Go Pack!

Gorgeous Graeagle Wedding

I am more and more impressed with every wedding that I make a cake for…brides are amazing and create gorgeous fairytale scenes!

This August wedding at a private estate in Graeagle is one of my favorite weddings I’ve seen. Everything is just perfect! Nothing beats a bride with impeccable taste. And the weather? The pictures could not be any prettier (Thanks to Handlebar Studios: http://handlebarstudios.com/)

The prettiest flowers for this cake:

Up, up and away!

A darling little boy turned one and he got to celebrate with an Up-themed party. That movie is one of my favorites.

The best cake.

I found it. Carrot cake. I am not big on sweets and can usually pass on anything I bake. Well…not carrot cake. I might have baked extra cupcakes and I might eat two every day. Thank goodness they are almost gone.

On top of the extra cupcakes I made, I baked 4 dozen cupcakes and a three-tier cake for a rooftop reception. So much carrot cake goodness.

Current fave: Textured buttercream and basic flowers

I love these simple, beautiful cakes.

I found these flowers in my backyard and they were the perfect touch for this textured cake for a couple to bring up to Lake Tahoe.

In fact, I love them so much, I made another similar one for a BBQ I went to:

Both of these cakes were almond with raspberry filling!
