There were so many fun themes in August. I also got to celebrate my birthday as well as many other wonderful celebrations with family and friends. Here are a few of my favorites from this month.
I had the great pleasure of taking part of a gender reveal party for a long time client. The mom to be wanted to find out what the sex of the baby was at the party so the doctor called her brother to reveal the news to him. Her brother sent me a text with “Its a girl!”. The color scheme of the party was yellow and green so I made the inside of the cake pops pink and also made some mini banana cupcakes(her favorite) with yellow frosting and green pearls for the party. What a fun and special way to find out what your having while surrounded by family and friends. I can’t wait for the baby shower!
I had a lot of fun with these character cake pops that I made for an engagement party. I love it when couples find a way to incorporate themselves into their wedding celebrations. After all, it is all about them.
Speaking of weddings, I somehow managed two weddings in August also. One was a very last minute wedding that I set up a cake pop “cake” for. I got the call just one week before the wedding because their cake pop person cancelled on them. Yikes! I told myself that I wasn’t going to do weddings this year, but I just had to help them out. We met two days later for a quick tasting and finalizing of the details and this is what we came up with. They held the wedding at a beautiful Mexican restaurant in Sunnyvale. I wish them all the happiness in the world.
The second wedding was a last minute thing as well. My sister was helping to plan a wedding on a budget for her assistant. They were going with Costco cake and weren’t going to have any favors. When I heard that I just had to step in. I love her assistant. She is an amazingly sweet lady and I couldn’t have her cutting into a Costco cake at the reception. Since I was gifting the cake, I didn’t feel any pressure and was able to just bake. I think it turned out beautiful. It was my second time making sugar flowers so I went with simple ruffle flowers. I also made these adorable wedding cake cookies as the favors for the guests. It was a beautiful wedding that many people helped put together. I definitely felt the love for this couple.
I hope you enjoy all the pictures!
