Melinda's Graduation Cake

December 17, 2010

My friend Melinda graduated from OSU and she asked if I would make her graduation cake and of course I accepted! 

She is Native American and wanted bead work and a Native American design on the cake.  So I took inspiration from her undergraduate cap and piped the bead work around the rim of the cap and cut out "ribbon work" with fondant.

Alexis' 1st Birthday

My daughter Alexis is turning 1!! 

I had quite the time making her cakes...several mishaps along the way but in the end everything turned out great!

I decided to to make a bear cake very similar to my 1st birthday cake (I will have to hunt up a pic) and I wanted a small present cake just for the birthday girl. 

She really enjoyed her first taste of sweets!  Almost as much as I enjoyed cutting up the bear...
