TCU Stadium

Since I posted the Texas A&M Stadium, I thought I would post this one too. This was created by Amber at Creme de la Creme. The bride decided to surprise her husband with a mini TCU Stadium. This time we only had a week to do the whole thing and I would say that Amber really pulled it off. I helped where I could, but compared to what she does with these stadiums, what I do is minimal.  Amber was also interviewed by somebody at a TCU Alum magazine!  You can read the article HERE.

Another Cake Class

One more thing that I’ve been doing is taking another cake decorating class with Mom.  Stephanie, of Frosted Gardens, offered a class in the basics at her house.  Mom thought we could benefit from a refresher in the basics and she was right.  Stephanie worked really hard to make sure we all learned something and had a great time.  For our final homework assignment, Mom and I both did cakes and they look similar because we “borrowed” each other’s ideas 🙂  We had a blast making them!

Another cake from work

Here is another cake I’ve made at work (www.cremedelacremecatering.com).  This one was very challenging, but it was also lots of fun to make.  This was actually to be a groom’s cake at his wedding and he gave us many pictures of the actual guitar for us to replicate.  The week before it was due, one of my co-workers helped me by cutting out the neck of the guitar and making me a template to carve the guitar with.  That turned out to be a BIG time-saver later.  The week of, I carved the body of the guitar, covered it in fondant, airbrushed the silver on and then began the detail work.  The details on the neck of the guitar probably took the longest.  Even laying the fondant strings wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be 🙂

Sorry for the lack of posts…

Hey everybody! So sorry for my lack of blog posts recently, but things have been so crazy and busy lately! Blake and I have finally moved into our new house and we’ve been working really hard to get settled in. We absolutely love our house and are excited to be here.
