Halloween 2010

 Sunday, October 31, 2010

This year has been exciting. Zachary has been so excited for Halloween that I installed a countdown on my computer and everyday we watch it. We have one for Christmas too. Zachary really loves Bakugan, so his costume was Dragonoid Bakugan. Remember the dragon cake I did, well that is the dragon that Zachary went as. Wyatt has fallen in love with The Mario Brothers games and so he went as Mario. This time we teamed up with our neighbors and played zone defense with the kids. Zach loves to play with our next door neighbor Cole, who went as Iron Man. Wyatt was really impressed with the house that was showing Scooby-doo!


Zach's Adenoidectomy

 Friday, October 29, 2010

Over the course of the past year we have had Zach in speech therapy to help with his speech. We have seen great improvement but have still noticed that he sounds very congested or speaks nasally. To find out why we went to an ENT doctor and had x-rays done. The x-ray confirmed that his adenoids were causing over 75% blockage. We were kind of stunned but did the next step and had them removed. On Monday, October 25, 2010 Zach went to the surgery center and had the procedure done. It has made a huge difference in his voice and his speech. He is also sleeping more soundly at night. It's great. Here are a few photos while we were waiting at the surgery center. He did really great and had no problems waking up from the anestesia. He got to keep the pink mask that he breathed into to go to sleep. He thinks its his dark vadar mask. You will notice in the pictures that he did not like having to wear the blue hair net.


Learning New Skills

 Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I am a 3rd generation cake decorator and have been reflecting on some family history. My grandmother who was very talented did all her cakes out of buttercream icing. She would pipe, lace and make all of the flowers from buttercream. Thinking about this made me realize that my buttercream decorating skills are not where they need to be. I realize that not everyone likes the texture or even the taste of fondant. We use an awesome brand of fondant that taste sweet and good, but it's not for everyone. This week was my mom's birthday and so I used it as an opportunity to work on the buttercream skills. This cake is definitely NOT perfect but good for a first try. It is vanilla pound cake filled with bavarian cream and decorated all in buttercream.

I look forward to progressing my skills so stay tuned for more updates.


Scooby-Doo, Where are you?

 Friday, October 22, 2010

This week our cake request was for a Mystery Machine Cake from Scooby-Doo for a little boy's birthday. Cake options were a 2d or 3d version and the customer chose the 2d. This cake was fun to do and is very vibrant. The cake was made from 2 layers of vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. Happy Birthday Joshua!


The cutest pumpkin in the patch!

 Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Today was a fun day! My neighbor Elizabeth and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch for some fall photos. Wyatt didn't want to cooperate, but I was a little quicker and got a few good shots. All of you are going to be amazed at how big Wyatt is. He is growing in leaps and bounds. Two and half inches since his birthday to be exact.


Another Baby Shower Cake

 Friday, October 15, 2010

We are getting some business. In the last 3 weeks we have done 4 cakes. Not to shabby. The latest creation is for a baby boy shower, and we replicated the cake from a picture that was given to us. The cake is made from chocolate pound cake and everything is edible, including the baby shoes.

It's Official....Wyatt's a Big Boy!

 Tuesday, October 12, 2010

We knew this day was coming. Wyatt has outgrown his crib and we found a good deal on a twin bed set for him. We took down his crib and changed a few decorations and now he has a big boy's room. He loves it. Wyatt had no problem transitioning to the big bed. It just shows how much he is growing up.


Bakugan Cake and Poker Chip Cake

 Thursday, October 7, 2010

This week Nicki and I did two birthday cakes. We did a birthday cake for a little boy who loves Bakugan. Sounds like Zachary but it was for another little boy. The second cake we were asked to replicate a poker theme cake. We had a lot of fun working on these and I am especially proud of the dragaon. I sculpted that using a candy clay that I made. I think it turned out great.
