First Cakes of the Month

My first two cakes of the month - I love the cute little Mickey Mouse Clubhouse 
cupcake liners the best. 

But this was my favorite cake of the two. My customer requested a small birthday cake for her cousin, who likes hunting. So I went with a soft pink buttercream, with dark pink piping. I accented it with a camo Browning buck, camo lettering, and a wafer paper fantasy flower brushed with pink lustre dust.

Dia de los Muertos - Sugar Skull Cake and Photo Shoot

While I love Halloween, Dia de los Muertos is my favorite holiday - despite the fact that I'm a white girl from Wyoming. 

I love celebrating the lives of the people I've loved and lost. 

I've always wanted to do a sugar skull cake. When I had a down week with no orders, right before Day of the Dead, I finally got the opportunity.

And never being one to squander an opportunity, I decided to do something else I've always wanted to do - a photo shoot with one of my cakes. 

My friend Elizabeth Owen did my makeup. She's an amazing artist with a studio here in town. Click here to see her Facebook page. 

And Philip Harnden did the photography. Another amazing artist here in town. We're a small town with a lot of talent. Click here to see his Facebook.
