Texas Rangers Birthday

Posted by jenmeeko at 9:44 AM 0 comments
My boyfriend James turned the big 3-0 this June, so we hosted a big Texas Rangers party and took a big group to a ball game. Of course, this was the perfect time to use my trusty ball-cake pan. My baseball turned out a little lumpy, but overall I was pretty happy with this one. All decorations are fondant, save the edible image Rangers logo which i picked up at my local cake supply. Had a great experience with Satin Ice fondant, which I hadn't tried in a while. I might be switching brands! We'll see...

Was also super excited to find they had Texas-shaped cookie cutters in three sizes! Naturally I had to use them for the cake. And some cupcakes. And likely cake balls very soon.

Also made some cake balls decorated like baseballs. Because obviously there wasn't enough cake already. :-)

Monogram Cake Balls

I have the honor of being the MOH (that's Maid of Honor for non-wedding-geeks) in my Besties' upcoming wedding, so I was excited to co-host their engagement party a few month ago. Finally getting around to posting pics of the cake ball party favors I made! These matched the monogram design I used on the invitations and party decor. Loved them!

Brunching and Puppy Cakes

Posted by jenmeeko at 9:34 PM 0 comments
My boyfriend James' mom and stepdad, Patty and Larry, have almost the same birthday, so we hosted a joint birthday party for them! It was a brunch, but no brunch is complete without lots of cake and cake balls, right? I made a puppy-themed cake for them decorated with handmade gum paste doggies to match their real-life doggies, Lucy and Wesley. (I included the inspiration photo. I think they turned out pretty cute!) The cakes were lemon (top) and carrot (bottom), and cake balls were white chocolate cake with milk chocolate coating. I have it on good authority that no cake balls went to waste thanks to James' adorable niece, Addi! She may be a cake ball addict! I added a pic of the full sweets table with some of my decor also!

60th Anniversary Cake

My coworkers are the best! Auden asked me to make a 60th Anniversary cake for his in-laws. This one was designed to match both the party invitations and a similar cake they found online. I made the vine design by hand in fondant, and the flowers on top are also handmade in gum paste. I really liked the pop of the bottom tier with the pink top tier.

Baby Shower Cake

Ok, I know, first update in ageeees! I'll try to do better now that life has settled down a little.

This one dates back to last October! I was so excited to make this cake for my coworker Savanna who hosted a baby shower for her friend who was having a little boy. The cake was lined with chocolate-covered strawberries, all in colors to match the shower theme. Loved it!

Cakeball Groom's Cake

Posted by jenmeeko at 10:35 AM 0 comments
I had the privilege of making the groom's cake for my friend Akshay's wedding a few weekends ago.  He asked for two tiers of chocolate cakeballs with red and gold accents (their wedding colors).  He supplied the pretty red and gold sequined ribbon around the bottoms of the tiers.  I love how this turned out.  I'll post a pic of this cake next to their gorgeous bride's cake soon.  They looked great together.

We Wish You a Merry Cupcake

Posted by jenmeeko at 3:02 PM 0 comments

I was asked to make two dozen Christmas cupcakes for a coworker, and they needed to be extra jazzy for his family Christmas celebration. So I spent the better part of last weekend making cute cupcake toppers in assorted Chritmas designs. Loved how they turned out! The cupcakes are red velvet with cream cheese frosting - my favorite christmastime combo! All decorations are fondant with edible glitter, luster dust and sprinkles.

Love the reindeer most of all!
