Treats fit for a Princess....

My daughter requested a "castle cake" for her 6th birthday party. I spent weeks planning the creation of this cake. The main challenge was the towers and turrets...and also how to get them to stand without destroying the cake! Once I had a plan, the cake was relatively simple to do. I enjoyed doing it and my daughter loved it. Thanks to my "dear hubby" for helping with the "assembly" of the towers!

For goodie bags I made these crown cookies and added the princess and prince frog suckers to the bag for an extra treat!

Just getting started....

Ok, I went back a few months and found pics of cakes I've done since the first of the year. A couple were simple "character pans",and the Thomas cake was created using several different ideas I came across online...

Why I started baking cakes.....

I have always enjoyed baking and decorating cakes and cookies. I started out just doing "Christmas Cookies" for my family and co-workers. After my children were born, I began to bake the cakes for their birthday parties. My boys had a combined birthday party this year...they are ages 1 and 2....and they love choo choos, especially Thomas. So I baked a 3-D train cake with boxcars and a caboose. They loved it, and I really enjoyed doing it! After having several people ask me to bake cakes for them...I realized that I should start working from home...baking cakes and cookies! I feel that God has given me this opportunity to be at home with my children and at the same time earn an income doing something I enjoy. I treasure my role as "mommy" and enjoy the blessing that they are to me each and every day. My desire is to provide custom cakes and cookies at reasonable prices. I love to be creative and welcome any new ideas.
