Anyways...here is what I was working on this week (I also baked some chocolate chip poundcakes but they aren't decorated so no pictures of them.
The first project was to make a "51". A friend of mine has a nephew graduating from High School today and he plays football and his number is 51. So he wanted to get him a cake with his number and High School colors, which are maroon and vegas gold. Man...I had a TIME making maroon. I wasted so much icing trying to get the right color. I tired like 5 or 6 different ways and it just wasn't working for me. So Sam said he would actually prefer to leave the maroon out and just use white and vegas gold because the maroon was WAY to close to garnet and he didn't want a USC cake :)
Here is my 51 cake:

|The draping is actually much harder than it looks!|
My second cake I did was for my co-workers 7 year old grandson. Another BOY! She said she wanted the number 7 cake but she didn't care how I decorated it..my first thought was sports. I could do a sport themed cake but I wasn't sold on that. Then last night I just sat down and decided to decorate like this:
I thought it was pretty cute...I hope he likes it!! My co-worker loved it :)
I don't have any cakes lined up for next week but will have a cute little girls birthday cake to make mid June! I am excited.
Hope everyone has a great weekend...my begins right now! I am going home to pack and get ready for my trip to Texas! Cant wait to see Jodi! :)
