So....I've been MIA for quite some time now. I've kept baking cakes but have been lazy about updating the old blog. I've been busy having babies, yall! And what do you know, I'm pregnant again! Im making a pact with myself to do a little better with my blogging. Sooooo, without further adieu, I give you Casey Wa-Wa. She is by far the scariest cake I've ever made for a few reasons. Firstly, she was HUGE. Secondly, she was someone's dog. It needed to look realistic and actually carry the characteristic of said dog. And finally, Casey Wa Wa had to travel from Atlanta, Georgia all the way down to Sea Island. I glad someone else was in charge of that part. Also, in case you were wondering, she is NOT red velvet.

For my sister's birthday party I thought I would give handmade flowers a try. This was my first attempt. I loved making them! This cake was based off another I had seen somewhere else that was absolutely beautiful. This little cake was a wonderful learning experience for me.

This cake was so much fun! First of all, when the bride booked me to make her wedding cake, she did so knowing that I would be 2 weeks away from my due date with baby #2. She took a major gamble and luckily it paid off! My first child was a week late so I thought I would probably be ok. Um, no. But it could have been worse! A few weeks before their wedding, I went into preterm labor and was put on temporary bed rest until I hit the 37 week mark. I notified the bride (who, by the way, might be the most laid back, incredible person ever) who basically said whatever happens happens and it will make for a great story at the end of the day. We came up with a back up plan to have the cakes baked and ready to go, and if necessary, her sister could pick them up, ice, and stack them. Countdown to the wedding day began. Four days before the big event I was back in the hospital sure I was in labor. Things calmed down after five hours and I was sent home to rest. By the time the big day arrived, I was rested, full of energy, and able to finish the cake and deliver it.

I made this for my college roommate's 30th Birthday. National Lampoon's Vacation is one of my all time favorite movies, so needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of working on this cake! Here are some pictures complete with Aunt Edna on top of the family Truckster, purse in hand.
