Fire! Fire! 6th Birthday

Today are my sons 6th birthday. Our theme was firefighter. I made the cake & the firetruck pinata. It was a lot of fun & hard work. Seeing the looks on their faces made my day.

9th Anniversary Cake--Love's Harbor, July 14, 2010

July 14, 2010 marked my 9th wedding anniversary. This is the cake I made to commemorate it.This was carrot cake with orange-cream cheese icing. It was soooo good and moist too. Cream cheese icing is really hard to smooth. I really love turquoise & brown.
