The past four weeks have been insane for me – with cakes and church programs and Easter and birthdays – I was at my wits-end. And then Saturday night Christian broke his arm again and I reached my limit on ability to “deal” with it all.
You can read more about my last four weeks over here at Rose Atwater. But since my posting here has been less-than-consistent, I thought I’d share just my recent cakes all in one post!
In total (if I counted right), I’ve done 26 cakes in the past four weekends… that included 90+ layers of cakes baked plus cupcakes and over 200 cookies.
I planned to give you a peek at all of them, but I don’t have them all watermarked and I’m too tired to dig through and see which ones are missing, so here are the ones I can share for now:
You may have already seen this collage that I posted on Facebook. Those are all of my cakes from two weeks ago… a wedding cake, anniversary cake, 100 cowboy cookies plus a cake, a giant engine block cake on a tractor tire, a turkey hunting cake and a train cake. Whew!!
These three sweet cakes were for my niece Perry Kathryn! She had a “Somebunny is turning One” party and I had the best time making her cakes!!
I also made my very first Dr. Seuss cake a few weeks ago! I can’t believe in 5 years of cake decorating… I had never done Dr. Seuss before!!
This Tiffany Blue & Rhinestones cake was delivered on this past Saturday… just hours before the Easter program and the broken arm. I was so excited with how it turned out! And this is the groom’s cake that went with it:
That particular Duck Hunting Cake was finished around 3am. I was so deliriously tired at that point, I was sort of shocked when I got up the next morning and it didn’t look crazy!
Another first – my first sugar peony! I’m not sure it’s botanically correct plus it’s gold, so I’m calling it a “fantasy” peony 🙂 Forgive the oh-so-yellow pictures… not sure what was going on with my camera!
And then… because pink is my favorite, the last cake I’ll share is a Ruffled Buttercream Princess Cake (and cookies!):
I love me some pink and ruffles… don’t you?!
Oh WAIT – one more pic:
These were actually done 4 weeks ago (I think – I’m so tired) but I figured since I already had them in a collage, I’d share them also.
Okay – so let me count – that’s 24 of the 26 cakes I made over the past 4 weekends?! I think. I’m not sure what’s missing but they’ll all get posted one day 😉 Ya’ll… this girl is exhausted!
If you have any questions about any of these cakes, leave me a comment!! Or if there’s any one that you’d love for me to go ahead and dedicate a post to – tell me that too!
I’ve got to get off to bed because my little boy is having surgery on his arm tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers!
