Hydrangea Cake

I have to admit, I'm kinda impressed with myself... I really like how this cake turned out and would like to make it again someday.  I also tried a new white cake recipe and it was very yummy.  I hope it made it safely all the way to TN!

This cake may have been the hardest I've done... emotionally.  It's a good thing that I had a child to tend to every so often while doing this cake or I probably would have shed a few tears... actually I probably could now too.  I'm really going to miss having Heather do cakes with me.  I enjoyed spending the time with her as much as, actually more than, doing the cakes.

It's been too long...

So I need to post the last three cakes that we did... well two that we did together and one that I did by myself.  

Last baby shower cake at Heather's old school.

Katie and Clint's wedding rehearsal cake.  We had a ton of fun designing and decorating this.  This was also our last cake together as Classy Confections... but hopefully not our last cake together ever.  I will have a one year old to do a cake for next year and maybe Heather can come help me since it will be a very important cake!

At the rehearsal.

Our friend Erin's son, Luke, had his first birthday this June and it had a monkey theme.  This was his personal cake.

I will continue doing cakes so please, please ask me to do some for yall!!

I will be posting again soon as I have a bridal luncheon cake for this weekend!

Over The Hill

This past week we had a cake for a man turning 40.  He is a huge Gamecock fan, but the rest of his family is not... so we thought it would be funny to have Cocky about to go "over the hill" at Death Valley.  Heather did a fantastic job on Cocky!!

Cookie Monster Cake

This past weekend, I made a Cookie Monster cake for her nephew's 2nd birthday.  I tried out a new recipe for a chocolate chip cookie dough cake to go with the theme and it was really tasty!  Grayson seemed to enjoy this cake much more than last years!

Our 2 Latest Cakes

It's been a while since we've posted, but we have two new cakes to show you.

First, we had a request for a birthday cake for a little girl who wanted surfboard and a monkey both incorporated onto her cake!  So what's better than a surfing monkey?!

Second, a friend from my church is having a baby (due exactly 3 weeks before I am) and we hosted her first baby shower for her this past Sunday.  The bedding for the nursery is sooo cute, but very intricate.  Since I was doing this cake all by my lonesome, due to Heather's engagement lunch with their families, I had to simplify it just a bit!  Yes, if you didn't know Heather is engaged and I'm super excited for her... though her 1 1/2 hr commute to do cakes isnt' going to be much fun for her!!  haha, jk!  Anyways, to see the bedding go here.

Safari Baby Shower

Heather's coworker is having a baby and of course we did the cake for the school shower!  Her bedding is so cute with a safari theme.  We found a picture of the rug that belongs to the set and imitated it on the cake, changing a thing here and there!  Heather gets credit for everything but the border and smoothing?!  haha, I sat and stared much of the time, but I find it so cool to see her create animals out of icing!

Sweet 16

Our first creations for a sweet 16 party finally happened!  We made a large cupcake and 4 dozen cookies with the birthday girl's initials on them!  The colors were hot pink, turquoise, and lime green... which looked so cute together!  We went with royal icing on these cookies b/c we like the look and it was def. some trial and error for us, but they turned out rather cute, or so I think!
