    This is me scaling back on cakes over the past month.  Every order or design idea I have turns into multiple tiers and I'm finally realizing that's just not necessary for smaller events.  So here are "simpler" cakes for three little girls.  I even nixed fondant in the first two. It's a big step.

    *learned a new word doing this one - ombre.  Look it up..or maybe I'm the last who didn't know!*  I made a new cream cheese icing recipe, but it wasn't quite solid enough for the poor rosettes on the bottom.  Next time I'll definitely do something stiffer.

    A peek inside:

    This next one was Azure Miss Mae's 2nd birthday cake (more on that coming soon?!):

    She is dog obsessed.  I *wanted* to do a GO, DOG, GO! cake, but this one with simple figures won out for the sake of time.  The recipe was a a mint cake (two very odd ingredients that I promise you can't taste) that I found here (and loved). 

    And I have to say I loved doing this one I finished & delivered yesterday.  The glitter, the fondant fabric folding...brought me back to my childhood days of designing barbie clothes with scraps of cloth. 

    Small cakes can be stunning. I just need to keep reminding myself!

    WOW!!! I loved the shades of pink inside the first cake, (and those rosettes look great to me, by the way!) The figurines on the 2nd were adorable, And that Princess Tiana cake was out of this world amazing. How do you stand letting people cut into your art????

    PS: So happy to see you again!
