Summer Vacation officially OVER!

Sorry I have been a little MIA lately - summer just took over and I lost control! Even though MacKenzie hasn't started school yet I feel like summer is officially over. We have done all the back to school shopping and I have gone back to cake overload!



We took a vacation to Ohio to see my family and my grandmother (88 years old). While there my cousin Jen turned 21 and I made her a quick little cake:









This was a coconut cake with buttercream icing. I did the side design free hand and all piped. I just kinda winged it - I LOVE the way it turned out and Jen loved it as well.

As soon as I got back I had to get started on THE MOST adorable cake for a friends daughter -



I can't tell you how much I LOVE this cake - again its all edible.
I am working on an awesome (cake related) giveway for when I reach 100 followers...... just something for you to think about!!!
Hope you enjoy!

  6. Janel,
    Your cakes are amazing. I do a little cake decorating myself. Your cakes put mine to shame. I'm actually making a wedding cake next week. I'm going to give your Tylose idea a try. I hope I can find it here. I'll be back again to see your creations.

  14. Hi there, found you at "The girl creative" blog.
    Janel!!!!! Girl, you have skills. The "21" cake blew me away, then I scrolled down and saw the penguin cake. You are extremely good. The only problem is...if I made that cake I wouldn't want to eat it because it's just to pretty. LoL.
