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.

These little gems were a lot of work. They are cupcakes frosted with buttercream icing and topped with fondant feathers, eyes, and beak. I was very concerned that I would fall short as far as them looking like big bird. I was pleased to see all of the pieces fall into place!
This past week I have been busy with cakes! It's been wonderful. Here is a mermaid cake based loosely on The Little Mermaid. I enjoyed all of the little details that went into this piece.
