Layla, I remember meeting her briefly, super cool gal! I loved chatting with her. =) Well, last weekend she requested some of my cakepops for a birthday celebration that she was throwing for her mom, brother, and son! What they shared in common was the beach so I made beach ball cakepops for them. These cakepops were flavored with chocolate cake and chocolate butter cream icing, and coated with white chocolate. The colors were hand painted with food color.
I met Grace around last year. We attended their beautiful wedding that was also dated last year. They’re both really down to earth and good people. They’re also very hard working! As a couple, they’re so cute, they even laugh the same way. =) They recently bought a new house! Congratulations you guys!!!
Grace requested a baby shower cake and wanted the cake to go with the theme of their gift, which is this baby crib blanket set. This cake had two flavors, the top tier is carrot cake, and bottom tier is strawberry cake. Both filled with cream cheese icing! The baby girl bear has a matching dress and flower on her head to go along with her quilt. The quilt was made with a bottom layer of white fondant, and square-cut purple fondants. All flowers and butterflies on the cake was hand painted. ABC blocks were added on the bottom for a natural baby-ish touch. The quilt that the bear is sitting on, was inspired from the baby crib blanket set link above. Grace wanted the cake to have the mother's name, Ann, and the father's name, Kin, on there so I placed it front center on the top tier cake. I painted on a butterfly underneath their name to give it more of a flow.
