Shake it for Avah




Remember your middle school celebrity crush? This cake is a result of a certain teenager's crush on Luke Bryant... It's fun, funny and reflective of the joy and happiness this now 13 year old brings to our family...  Happy Birthday!

Here initial reaction to seeing the cake... I think she liked it :)

Teenager Territory...


Well, here we are  9 years after I started decorating cakes for my nieces birthday's (Here is my first cake for her) and my oldest niece is now a teenager. I may or may not have teared up re-reading my old cake post... She is an amazing, talented and funny young lady with a heart of gold... She still wants to hang out with her Aunt Amy (for now...) and still wants a Birthday cake of her own design.  I had a super busy weekend so I had to make the cake a few days in advance, which lead to a cake wreck emergency on Sunday morning...  but the crisis was averted (thank you Denise and Cindy) and the cake was repaired just in time for the party to start...  Since it was Superbowl Sunday she request a Bell skirt/dress themed bottom of the cake and the rose was replaced by a football.  She had Beauty and the Beast figurines that she set around the cake...  Here are the pics of the cake coming together, falling apart and then coming together again...


Here is the cake- Finished on Friday and delivered safety...

Then gravity went to work over the next two days and the ruffles pulled the fondant off the sides...





Here is the repair- Scraped all the fondant off, saved the ruffles, recovered the cake and then put the ruffles back on the cake...

TAD..DAHHH...... Just like new...




The party may have gotten out of control a little- Mom was flagged and had her drink taken away... :)
