One Crazy Weekend

This weekend I am going to be busy, busy, busy. I am making a luau cake, a Braves jersey cake, a hip-hop cake, and a small cake to celebrate a couple who just got married. Oh, and I can't forget my 7 month old's baby dedication cake. WOW!!!

The luau cake is a carrot cake with cream cheese icing that I am going to color half light blue and half light green. It will be two round tiers and each tier is a double layer. Haven't decided on the size of each round yet. On top of the cake there are going to be palm trees and totom pole faces. Around the tiers there will be hawaiian flowers and little wooden signs made out of fondant that say things like "TIKI" and "HULA". I got the idea from Charm City Cakes. And for those who may not like carrot cake there will be white cake cupcakes with cream cheese icing with a small iced pineapple on the top.

The Braves jersey cake will be a chocolate cake with white icing colored in red and navy blue to look like an actual jersey. I even plan on putting the MLB logo on the collar of the jersey done in icing. The customer's last name will be on the jersey along with his age as his jersey number. There will also be some baseball cupcakes and maybe if I get real creative I will make a bat. Guess we'll have to see.

I just got the order for the hip-hop cake so I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do. I know it's going to be chocolate and maybe have a record on it and I know it will be in bright colors like hot pink, but I haven't decided on the rest of the decor.

The small wedding cake is going to be a white, round, double layered cake covered in white fondant with different sized polka-dots in different pastel colors around the cake. The top will read "Congratulations Tim and Suzanne".

I also haven't decided on how the baby dedication cake will look since I've been so busy planning the other cakes for my customers. This cake is just for my family so it will probably be decided last minute, but it will still be just as cute as the rest of the cakes.

I will post pictures when I'm done so be sure to come back and look them up. Also, if anyone needs a cake just let me know!!!
