A Nurse’s Cake

Iza requested a birthday cake for her colleague/friend in the hospital. When I asked her about the design of the cake, she said that it’s all up to me. Ahh, the green light of trying a new technique LOL But then again, there’s not enough time. Especially after finishing the 2 other cakes, I feel…

Two Birthday Mommies

Mike requested a cake to celebrate his mom’s birthday and Lloyd’s mom’s. One cake for two celebrants.

Hi-5 cookies

A friend requested these Hi-5 cookies as party favors for her daughter’s 5th birthday. This was the 3rd reason of my crazy week 28. The 2 other reasons were the dinosaur cake and the purple cake.

Belle’s cake

Since I don’t have much projects these days, I was eager to practice painting a fondant cake, specifically drawings of roses.

This…

Matet, a friend, requested 2 cakes for her 3-in-1 event: birthday, thanksgiving and housewarming 🙂 She specifically requested that it shouldn’t be fondant and that she likes only a very simple cake.
