I made a cake today for a coworker who had a Backyard Luau/Birthday Party. I was pleased with the turn out of this cake especially since I don't get that many cake orders. I was kind of nervous about having so much space to mess up, Cakes aren't as easy to me as cupcakes. Cupcakes are cute and fun. Decorating a whole sheet cake almost felt like I painting a canvas! I wish I could have been a little more creative but I was worried I wasn't going to have enough room for all the information written on the cake, I can honestly say I can't wait to work on another one. It felt good to see the reactions from people when the box lid was opened, People were taking pictures and smiling, some were amazed at the cake and others were amazed that I did it! LOL! I think I was just as amazed. Thanks again Cheneail for trusting me with your event. Can't wait to do it again!

Preparing for a Baby Shower in another 3 weeks, I took a trip to the Christmas Tree Shop. Don't understand where the name comes from because I did not see one Christmas Tree or Ornament, but I did find some really good items to decorate with. The baby shower I am preparing for was inspired by a group of photos found on the web. The color scheme is different blues, green, turquoise and silver. I wish I knew how to add these silver teddy bears and I will research it and let you know if I find anything. This is going to be fun. Cannot wait to show you my spin on this idea even though it will be pretty challenging to top!

Dulce DeLeche Cheesecakes, Yummy. I had to find a way to make this look just as good as it taste! So I decided to dig into my box of supplies and put something simple together. The tag was made from a Stampin' Up Rubber Stamp line called "Yummy" I used the stamp "A Little Yummy For Your Tummy" on Whisper White Card stock and cut out around the shape. Tied the tag to a pretty bright pink organza ribbon and I'd say this is a well dressed cake!

Just Getting Warmed Up

So as I solict friends and family to follow this blog, I don't want to loose focus of why we are here. I am a novice event planner looking to unite with other event planners of all levels. This week I am actually making Mini Dulce Deleche Cheesecakes for a few friends and Coworkers, Cake Balls are always on the menu (they are just that good!) and I need to research and get some more sketches together for a Luau Cake due this Saturday so I pretty much have a busy next couple of days but still I am researching. I was so excited about starting this blog I have 2 postings in one day.

Welcome to my blog, I decided to name my blog "Piece of Cake?" because I like cake, I mean I really like cake! I am the type of person who looks at the dessert menu before deciding what to eat for dinner, and if they don't have a dessert menu then I probably won't order dinner! I recently graduated with a degree in Baking and Pastry and I started my own Event Coordinating Business. I am skilled in many areas of decorating but still I want more. I want to plan all types of events or at least make them look nice. Like some of my inspirations Martha Stewart and B Smith, I plan to have my hands in all that's under the umbrella of event planning. Thanks for visiting.
