I am very excited to report that I have been one busy baker these past few weeks. I have been averaging 2 cake orders a week since mid May and the orders are flowing in! I am so happy to be gaining so much experience and my customers have been giving me great feedback.
In my son's pre-school class, the kids get to take turns bringing in snacks. Last week, my Zeker Man got to have his snack day. Since our elementary schools don't allow homemade treats, I will send in yummy homemade goodies until he reaches kindergarten. We always have so much fun coming up with something for him to pass out to his friends. Here are the colorful spring sugar cookies that we made this time.
My cousin and her fiance are getting married in Hawaii then having a reception once they return home. Here is the invitation to their Hawaiian Luau reception. Sorry, I can't figure how to rotate the photo!
I recently had an order for 2 large sheet cakes for a surprise 70th birthday party. For most bakers this would be a cake walk, so to speak. For me, however, it involved an all-nighter with several trips to Taco Bell for caffeine reinforcements. I was just a bit nervous about this undertaking. Here is what I came up with. Keep in mind this was my first attempt at a sheet cake (I seem to say that a lot).
Hand made tulips.
The delicious cake bites I threw in with the order.
My little man, Zeke, turned 5 years old yesterday! In honor of this milestone, we celebrated by having a Cheeseburger in Paradise party. We enjoyed cheeseburgers (of course), french fried potatoes, big kosher pickles, shrimp cocktail, fruit salad, mac n cheese, frozen concoctions and, best of all, CHEESEBURGER CUPCAKES!
