I'm still here...

I don't know about your "to-do" list, but mine never seems to get any shorter! (even though I stay crazy busy from morning 'till night) Right now, it's 10:15 pm and all I want to do is crawl in my bed and go to sleep, but I'm checking one more thing off my list by updating the blog. I've been really slack lately...please forgive me. Here's a look at what's been going on in the world of emiecakes:

Mandy ordered this cake for a family member's baby shower. The inspiration came from a baby shower invitation that I've seen in Target! (The fondant is still wet in the pictures...that's why it looks so "shiny".)

Andrea ordered this cake for her son, Kolten's birthday. He loves GI Joe and he shared his birthday cake with his classmates. I tried a new technique on the camouflage and I really like the way it turned out!

You know how some pizza places offer a "personal pan pizza"? Well, here's the cake version! Mindy ordered a "personal pan cake" for her sister in law's birthday. Being a fellow GA fan, I was more than willing to help her out! You have to see this cake in "person" to understand how cute it is...I baked it in a 6" pan!

I'm guessing that the reason Mindy ordered a small cake for her SIL is because she also ordered this cake for her son, Brayden. Like most boys that I know, Brayden loves Transformers. While the action figures fit perfectly atop the cake, it was an ugly scene in my house when I had to explain to Collin that they weren't his and he couldn't play with them. (And for those of you who don't know, I was informed by my husband that Transformers came to the earth on meteors...not stars. I guess that means that the cake is technically inaccurate. Oh well, I still think it's pretty darn cute!)

And finally, a birthday cake for a bowling party. This is definitely one of my favorites! (And again, for those of you who don't know, the bottom hole in a bowling ball (the one that you put you thumb into) is slightly larger than the other two. (Another pearl of wisdom from my husband...another cake inaccuracy...oh well!)


  1. Girl you are getting better and better!!!! It's so fun to watch your blog and see your designs! they are so cute and original!! Love you!

  2. Teresa took the words out of my mouth. Each cake is amazing and it is fun to watch you progress in designs and skill. Love all of them!!!!

  3. Well you tell JP that instead of telling u what is wrong with your cakes to get in there and help. I am sure he would look awfully cute in a frilly apron. LOL!

  4. Oh and I googled it and the Transformers first came to earth on their spacecraft called the Ark. So there. HAHAHA! I am such a nerd but I had to help my girl out.
