Me, Myself, and Irene

The good news: I leave for vacation on Thursday! The bad news: Our vacation is in Key West, FL and there's a slight problem- Hurricane Irene... she is trying to wreak havoc down there and ruin our vaca plans. But we will not be deterred that easily! The plan right now is to monitor the weather closely and provided there aren't any drastic changes, move ahead with our trip as planned. So if you get a chance, say a quick prayer for us that everything goes smoothly, the weather holds out and we have a safe, fun, and realxing vacation!
Below are from the past couple weeks:

Frog prince 1st birthday
 Frog prince cake and smash cake

   Bachelorette Party cupcakes

Girly cupcakes

Vegas birthday

I also found time to work in some homeade cinnamon rolls. These are always a fam favorite. I use the Pioneer Womans recipe which you can find here
They are always a huge hit. I'm telling you, your friends/family/co-workers will love you. (As if they needed another reason to love me).
That's it for now. I've got one more cake order tonight then it's full on vacation mode 'til Monday.

My best friend's wedding (shower)

Last weekend was crazy busy. My friend, Ham- who lives in Denver- is getting married in October. She came into town so I had one shower to put on and two others to attend. That's three bridal showers in one weekend.
  We had a great time and it was so good to see her.
So while I was running around all weekend, Jan was left to do cakes. With much appreciated help from Javada, they created this cute Luau cake:
Then last week it was business as usually with a cake and two sets of cupcakes:

 Fishing Birthday Cake

4th Birthday Cars Cupcakes

Birthday Flower cupcakes
More to do this weekend. Until then, everyone have a sweet week!
