Busy Weekend Past, II

I think this past week/weekend was the second busiest I've been since April! I am so thankful to have the greatest clients and enjoyed every second of each of these sweets...

First, I made cupcakes for a Halloween themed BUNCO meeting. I just joined this group and had an absolute blast playing with and getting to know all the ladies!! Four flavors and different decoration made the dessert not only tasty, but super cute as well! All of the decor was edible.

Second was my husband's birthday and although I usually make him a chocolate peanut butter cake, I decided this year to do something a little different. As you all know I recently added Cake Truffles to my menu of yummy treats...so, I wanted to practice with them a little more. I made chocolate cake balls filled with peanut butter frosting and covered them in milk chocolate and Reese's Pieces (my hubby's favorite). He thought they were the best things I've ever made him...so he didn't miss that cake at all! :)

Third, I had a 20th birthday cake and cupcakes due. The client decided on a chocolate cake with caramel and toasted pecan filling for the cake and a dozen of my Black & White cupcakes. I used my homemade Marshmallow fondant to cover the cake and ran with a zebra print theme. I am in love with bows, especially for a birthday, so I finished the cake and cupcakes in handmade blue fondant bows. The client, as well as the birthday girl loved it all!

Next was a girl cow cake. This was for a 3rd birthday party at Chic-Fil-A! The birthday girl wanted confetti cake filled with pink buttercream and a hair bow to match her's. I also added edible pearls and earrings to accent the "girlie" theme. I found out later that the birthday girl ended up becoming ill and they had to cancel the party at the last minute...but she still got a piece of birthday cake! Hopefully, that made her feel a little better!

And lastly, I had an order for cake truffles. My client wanted a array of flavors for thier dinner party, but did not care which. So, I made White Vanilla Bean, Marble, Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Raspberry.

After all of that, I needed a vacation!! :) So, my family went on a camping trip...

I enjoyed my busy week...almost as much as I enjoyed relaxing in the mountains with the in-laws! Thanks again to all of my clients. Without you I wouldn't be able to do what I love!
