Cake catch up!

I have been wanting to put some cakes on my blog that I have done within the past year. One dates clear back to July 2010. These are cakes that haven't been on my blog yet. I did other cakes in between these but they are already on my blog.

The first one is this horse cake!
This is the one I did in July. I tried to have the horse standing up but I realized (after I had been working with the cake for 2 hours) that I needed curtain supports for it to stand. I don't know what I was thinking. Anyway, I ended up with the horse lying down. It took me 6 hours just to decorated! I was so done with this cake!

I was quite embarrassed when I found out that while it was on it's way home, it split! I was worried that it would do that! I was having issues with it on that side. It was one of my bad cake days! I ended up doing a cake for them for free, to make up for it.

Here is the cake I made for them for free.
It was for their daughter. Sad thing was, the toys that were supposed to go on the cake didn't arrive in time because I only had a week to order them, so I had to do a cut out. I still really liked how it turned out! The Emerald City was made out of rice crispy treats. I loved the Emerald City! I made this cake in November.

I made this cake at the beginning of September. It was a "Hello Dolly" cake. I loved doing this cake because I love "Hello Dolly!" I grew up to that movie. The cake even said "Happy Birthday Dolly!" The cake was made in honor of my brother-in-law's, mother, Pat. She had been in the play "Hello Dolly." This was her 80th birthday and they themed the party around "Hello Dolly." I was very happy with the way it turned out! I even made the headdress and fan!

Here is a picture of Pat dressed as "Hello Dolly." I based the cake off of this picture.

Here is a second picture of her in a different dress. I took the color from this dress, so I kind of combined the two dresses.

I did an Oreo cake for my brother, Robert in September!

I did this princess cake for my friend, Katie's daughter. I think it was in January.

And I think I did this MJ "Beat It" cake the first week of February! I liked doing this cake because I am a MJ fan! I also thought about my friend, Ann and how she would love this cake because she loves MJ too!

Well there you have it! I am finally caught up with all my cakes on my blog!

Now I just need to label my blog.
