Tran's 40th

My wonderful friend turned 40 and we had a big party for her. I sent an e-mail out to friends asking for words, ideas, and characteristics that they think of when they think of Tran. I then put it on a cake.

Along with the cake, I made cupcakes that spelled out "Happy 40th Birthday".

Horse Birthday Party

I made this cake for an 8 year old birthday party. The theme was horses and the favorite color was orange. So we did a horse coral with orange flowers. P4011369 P4011368 P4011370 P4011372 P4011371 P4011373

At the end of March I competed in a wedding cake competition and attended a cake convention. I had a great time and learned a lot. My cake was nowhere near the top of the list for the best, but I enjoyed making it. I loved learning the flowers and enjoyed having to create my own cake out of specific guidelines. I was given a mock interview from a wedding couple and had to pick 4 things from it for my cake. The colors were ivory, navy blue, and kiwi green. The flowers were peonies, calla lilies, and orchids. The shape was not supposed to be round, so I did hexagon. The monogram was KKA. I really did learn a lot and I am so glad that I did this. I will definitely do it again in the future!
