This is always a fun but difficult post for me. I find myself looking over the past year and it is so fun to see all the cakes that I have created. They bring back so many memories for me. Then I try to chose my favorites...and that is really hard. Every cake I make is special to me. I seriously put a small part of myself into all my creations. I LOVE making cakes. And I am so grateful to my customers for choosing to use me for their cakes and allowing me to continue doing what I love. So with that said here are some of my favorite cakes from 2012.
2012 was an interesting year. It was the year of Pinterest...you may have heard of it. Pinterest brought about many trends in the cakes. When people described the cake they wanted I heard words like, ombre, vintage, ruffles, antiqued, owls. So here are just a few Pinterest inspired cakes.
Ruffle cakes... I have literally made ruffles until my little fingers want to fall off. :)
Ombre...the first time I heard this word, I had NO idea what my customer was saying. Now, I am all too familiar with "Ombre."
Vintage, and antique are two more words that have shown up in descriptions of cakes. This cake was so fun and I think it definitely has a "vintage" feel.
Unless you have been living under a rock...you have seen an owl this past year. This is one of my favorite owl cake designs. I love its whimsy.
Along with Pinterest trends, here are some of my favorite cakes of 2012.
I love this cake, because it surprised me. At first I wasn't sure how the colors where going to work. I just wasn't excited about it. Then as I made it and completed it, I fell in love with it.
I loved the flowers and colors on this cake. Very much my style.
This was for a cute lady who was celebrating being "cancer free." I loved how it turned out, but loved even more what it was representing.
This cake taught me a new flower, the carnation, which I love.
I LOVE 3-D cakes. They challenge me, and that makes my job fun.
Here are some of my favorite 3-D cakes of 2012.
My first armadillo cake. It was so much fun to make! And the bride and groom LOVED it!!
The year of Zombies brought about a few Zombie inspired cakes.
Loved making them and how they turned out!!!
This was by far my largest cake of 2012. I loved making it for Ebay.
I always love making cakes for my family. This was for my sweetheart Chris and his father. They are avid duck hunters and this celebrated their birthdays and the opening of duck season. People couldn't believe these were cakes...lol!
And lastly, my gingerbread house cake. Really loved how this turned out.
Thank you all for making our 2012 AMAZING!!! We hope that we can continue to serve you and your family with our "sweet surprises." I am truly honored to be able to be a part of your lives through my creations.
