Happy Halloween

I didn't have any official Halloween orders, which gave me plenty of time to go overboard with cupcakes for my girls' parties, and a cake for the Halloween Carnival's cake walk.

Okay, not TOO overboard...they're just some things I've had on my Pinterest boards for a while.

I love playing around with photo effects! Too bad they aren't really appropriate for most cake photos. Nobody wants spooky effects added to their wedding cake photos for some reason. Crazy huh? 

Next year, I'm going to change it up, and go with a single, giant spider instead of a few small ones. I may or may not already have said spider in my cake cupboards...

An Extra Special Cake

Although I'm a volunteer, I've never gotten a call from Icing Smiles...

But around here, we have our own version, started by a local baker just a few weeks ago. Tesha from the Bipity Bopity Boo Bakery is working with a organization called Jason's Friends Foundation, which provides support to families with kids battling cancer. She brings together these families and bakers here in Wyoming. It's our own little Icing Smiles. 

I was given the privilege of making a cake for one of these families this week

Panda Bears

When the amazing Corrie of Corriecakes sent a customer my way last week, I was nervous taking the order. I just kept thinking "If she's used to getting Corrie's cakes, there's no way one of mine will compare!"

So I may or may not have gone a little overboard, hoping to make sure mine would compare in quality, if not style. :-) 

I have to admit, I love, love, LOVE how it turned out!
