Andy Dunn Party Pictures......

I wanted to share these darling pictures from Andy Dunn's 6th Birthday Party. Our family loves the Dunn's very much and are very excited that Andy was able to celebrate his 6th Birthday healthy! Andy has a long route to go on his Road Map, but.....he's doing wonderful!
In a previous post, I had told you about Andy calling me himself and telling me what he wanted. I have had more calls and e-mails telling me how "Over The Top" this cake was. I have developed my skills with Fondant and am now taking orders for any type of cakes or confections that would require Fondant.
Last year, Andy called me himself from Vanderbilt Children's Hospital with his order for his "Sand Castle Cake" which was a HIT!

Have fun this week at Kids Camp! I know you sure did enjoy your Make A Wish Trip to Disney World!!!! Much love and Kisses there My Kissie Pooh!

Sweet Confections

Sarah Covington called me from Franklin a little bit ago and asked me to make her brother Lynn McGregor a Homemade German Chocolate Cake (because it's his absolute favorite) for his Birthday. Lynn was so excited when it was delivered to him at Farm Credit Services.
My friend Tina @ United Diamond Brokers called me and asked me to make a Dessert Tray for a family member of hers who had passed away. They wanted to take it to the ICU Unit at River Park as a way of saying "Thank You" for what they had done for them.

This tray consists of Strawberries dipped in Gourmet Chocolate, Homemade Sugar Cookies with my delicious Buttercream Icing, Pretzels dipped in Gourmet Chocolate with Multi-Colored Sprinkles and Coconut, My Signature Homemade Strawberry Filled Cupcakes with my delicious Buttercream Icing, and last but not least.....My Own Creation....Millionaire Brownies. (My Secret Recipe Brownie's with Caramel & Gourmet Chocolate drizzled over each Brownie and topped off with Chopped Pecans) Yum Yum!

Thanks Tina and Sarah!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Wallace/Cottrell Wedding

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get these beautiful pictures of Kendra's wedding posted.
Kendra picked out this beauty for their wedding cake. She had sent me a picture of a cake that she absolutely loved, but...wanted it tweaked a little. So....instead of it being round, we make it square. We added the Cotton Candy Pink Sheer Ribbon, used Vibrant Pink flowers between layers, and used solid white icing with pearls.
With so many guests, I made her an extra cake and used the fresh Gerber Daisy's and greenery as a topper.

All of the flowers on Kendra's cake were fresh. Roses, Carnations, Gerber Daisy's, and Small Orchids. Everything was BEAUTIFUL!

When Kendra came down to look at it.....she was all smiles and was so happy!

Andy Dunn's 6th Birthday

Happy Birthday goes to Andy Dunn! Andy will be 6 tomorrow. He and his family are at Disney World in Orlando this week. It's his "Make A Wish" trip.
Andy used his "handy dandy hot line" to call me and personally ask me to make him the Mickey Mouse Play House cake. He had "specific" instructions about the cake. Here he goes....Classic White Cake, Caramel flavor with the MM Playhouse on top. Well...Andy's wish is my command. I made his Club House out of Fondant. His body, head, foot, and hand are all Fondant. The cake was his favorite and he jumped straight up in the air when he and his family came to pick it up. The caramel flavoring made my kitchen smell sooooo yummy.
Happy Birthday Andy!
For those of you who don't know Andy, he's been battling Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer 17 months. Oh, by the way......he fell in love with our new puppy Woody. He asked Dillon if he would bring him one just like Woody for his Birthday present. lol
