Ladies Night at Peoria's Glazin In the Sun was a huge success! There were so many great vendors with great products to view and purchase and we had a great turnout of fun ladies. We provided samples of our cupcakes - White Almond Sour Cream with American Buttercream or Chocolate Buttercream icing. We also had chocolate purses and shoes available for sale - these are always a hit.

Brendan's 2nd Birthday

My son turned two at the end of December and we celebrated his birthday with a train themed party and of course, a train themed cake. He loves cake, especially chocolate. The cake is a 2 tiered cake with a 10 inch layer of double chocolate sour cream with white chocolate mousse filling and a 8 inch tier of white sour cream with raspberry mousse. The cake is iced in American buttercream with fondant accents. We added the birthday Thomas train to the cake. This cake was inspired by a design done by one of my favorite sugar artists, Sharon of Sharon's Sugar Shack

Party favors where milk chocolate train suckers and chocolate covered graham crackers with train.

For the party he was dressed as a conductor - the train overalls are from Gymboree. We ordered conductor hats and train whistles for everyone from Celebrate Express. We had Thomas tattoos and coloring pages - the pages can be downloaded from the Thomas & Friends website.

I made the invitation using a digital scrapbooking kit. And I'm excited that my favorite digital scrapbooking website, Sweet Shoppe Designs, recently came out with a train themed digital scrapbooking kit that I'll use to scrapbook his party.

Pirate themed birthday

Another cake from December. This pirate ship cake was made for a 4th birthday party. This cake served approximately 45 - it was chocolate sour cream with chocolate mousse filling and covered with chocolate fondant. We used candles as cannons. The mom is an amazing party planner and the house was decorated for the pirate theme - she sent me a few pictures of the cake setup. She added a few pirate figurines to the cake.

feedback from customer:

Wow, I don’t even know what I should rave about first! First off, the cake was gorgeous – absolutely perfect!!! When we finally were brave enough to cut into it and ruin your wonderful creation, everyone and I mean everyone gushed about how delicious the cake was! My husband who is NOT a sweet eater and NEVER eats birthday cake even thought it was delicious! SO many people asked who made the cake, and I happily gave the referral. You did a fantastic job and I’m beyond thrilled at how the cake turned out. Thank you so very much!!! Jen M

Pink Sassy Circles

I'm doing some catch up today posting some cakes from December. The first two are similar designs, Iced brown (chocolate) with Sassy Circles in two shades of pink - one cake was for a first birthday and one for a baby shower. These cakes were inspired by the "N" monogram cake that is posted on my website.

First Birthday - they also ordered a coordinating smash cake and flower chocolate dipped pretzels with a personalized note that said "Hugs and Kisses, Kyleigh"
