So....... are you ready for some CAKE DECORATING!!!!!!

Here are some recent cakes that I have done:

This is me with COLETTE PETERS!!!! MY CAKE HERO! She is on the Food Network Cake Challenges and she also judges the cakes, I was SOOO honored to meet her!!!

I was very proud of this was a 24 hour notice cake!!! So I had literally a day to do it! She paid dearly for the short notice too!

ok..... I entered the cake show and came in second place to the baby in the photo below..... ok...... she did a great job carving but I have to say "I GOT ROBBED"!!!!!! anyone agree????? I learned something on this day..... NEVER assume anything... I just KNEW I was going to take home ANOTHER blue ribbon.... welp,,,,,, nope,,,,,,, its a red 2nd place one..... :-(
Ok.... NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER let a limo driver put a 4 tiered cake in the front seat and expect it to stay in place!!!! This one FELL OVER.... totally not my fault but I felt SUPER bad when the client told me what had happened.  I offered to give some money back, but she very nicely declined. I offered to deliver it to the ODU game but she was fine taking it, she had no clue the limo driver put it in the front seat!!!
Eyeball class I taught

UGG BOOT class I taught!!!

COWBOY HAT/JEANS and BOOTS Class I taught!
This lady is BETH PARVU!!! She invented all the CRYSTAL COLORS, which are the luster dust colors we use to color our flowers!!! I LOVE HER!!!!!!!
This is the poinsettia that I did, i will be teaching a class on this Nov. 19th and 20th.
This is my new cake friend BECCA!  She got to meet BUDDY!!! He was here last week and Buddy sent a limo to pick up Becca at her home AND she got to meet him before the show AND she got to go up on stage with him!!!!!!  HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!
