A fun, cheerful, bright, dinosaur cake for a four year old boy! One of this week's cakes was this adorable Dinosaur Cake. The only request was that it be age appropriate for a four year old and not scary. No problem!!!

So, I never had a lingerie bridal shower (no complaints here)! I have never been to a lingerie bridal shower (I'm pretty sure I'm ok with that too)! So when I got an order for a Cake for a Lingerie Bridal Shower AND I had free reign with the design, I had some serious research to do! I knew that I wanted it to be tasteful (I do work from home) and cute (a must for all my cakes). First, I asked around. There was definitely a consensus that I could not go with the obvious penis cake. There are lots of cakes online made with a heart shaped pan and then shaped into busts. That didn't seem right to me either. A bunch of women sitting around eating scantily clad cleavage? Nope, that wasn't going to happen. Finally, I determined I had to go with my strength, sugar paste figures. Both the bride and the groom in their underwear? Weird. It had to be the groom reclining in funny boxers and the bride-to-be blushing in her dental scrubs! A perfect cake for a tasteful Lingerie Bridal Shower!

I was thrilled when Santa brought it to my kids for Christmas, and I have been secretly trying to master it at night when I am not swamped with cake orders! Full disclosure, I am stuck on level 8, it is very tricky! Needless to say, it was my pleasure to make this cake.

It's a busy busy week! I got to create one of my favorite cakes: the Topsy Turvy Cake! The directives on this cake were: pink, purple, green, stripes, dots, and flowers! Recently my customers have been amazing with their orders, specific enough that I understand what they want, but general enough to leave ample room for creative and artistic freedom! This is why I love making cakes for people!!! (A little shout out here to Pink Cake Box for the inspiration for this cake. Their cakes are amazing!) I still have LOTS of work to do in the kitchen this week on some orders that take me to entirely new places in cake!!!

I created this simple and elegant Barbie Cake for a customer's five year old daughter. The birthday girl requested that Barbie hold a mini-cake. It's easy to get carried away and cover the entire dress with sparkles and bling, but I attempted to show some restraint and keep the dress simple to focus on the mini-cake and special flower details on the dress.
