No, she doesn't have wings or wear a pink tutu.

I learned so many things over the last 2 weeks. Some insightful, some down right HI-larious, some new creative techniques, and some Let-it-all-go-and-live-life-to-the-fullest.

Let's work backwards. Cakes have been fun and I have gotten to play my way, a lot. Here are a few....
Fun, but boring. Not my choice.

A very large, green battery operated, Light saber. Get your mind out of the gutter! Even though I agree, it does not look like a Light Saber.

I've been waiting to meet any number of my blogging' friends. AndreAnna ordered a Dora cake, so she's the first one I got to meet. I was thrilled to do Dora, except she had a bad cowlick. Since Michael C, blew me off and didn't order a cake in the shape of his missing left nipple, or his heart, I was happy to make Charlotte her second Birthday cake.

Fun Fiesta 40Th b-day. I think I put a pic of this up already though...

The glass even has salted rim! (well, sugared.)

A copy of an Anne Geddes poster of a naked baby in Gerber daisies

The top tier. The flowers were a lot of work.

First attempt at a 1 yr old b-day party. I didn't like the top.
This was much better. I put the babies "smash cake" on top.

Cupcakes to match. Hello Kitty!

Me in my all time favorite jacket.

My son is really a piece of work. He kept sliding the door back and forth to show me he could move his nose. I am so proud. The Binky fairy came last night and brought Dump trucks and bulldozers. He wanted to know if she dressed like a Fairy. Hence the title of the post.

The dog had to give up her Binky fetish also. Thank GOD!!

I really do have some nice flowers in the yard. Thankfully My green thumb of death hasn't hit the one yet....

And let me leave you with this thought...Do you ever wish you could sing at the top of your lungs, or wiggle your tongue back and forth in your mouth making that funny lb-lb-lb-lb, noise during a meal, and not have anyone notice or tell you to stop? I watched my 2 year old son sit through a dinner, making that noise, and I decided I was going to do it too. I didn't get the same reaction from the rest of the table as he did.....


Hannah said...

Yay!! I've missed seeing your cakes!!

They are all fantastic!

chefmom said...

Hannah: Thanks!!! You look like you had a great family reunion!! I'm sure you've been as busy as i have been. Tis the season right?!

someGirl said...

Me likey the last cake, very pretty!! You've been a busy woman!

PS: That light saber is very well endowed.

AndreAnna said...

Again, the cake was FANTASTIC. I ate it for days afterwards. And no one noticed this "cowlick" you speak of.

Sorry you were in such a rush when you came by - you have to come over and hang out soon!

chefmom said...

somegirl: yes I have! And that's not even all of them. I did a very cool cake with a motorcycle made of fondant and I FORGOT to take a picture!!! I called the woman and asked her to e-mail me a picture. Hopefully she will. And yes, the light saber was well endowed!

AndreAnna: I was bummed I was in such a rush too. We'll have to get together, for sure. Even it it's after Sawyer arrives, we can make Charlotte feel like it's a special day for her. Riley will love her!

You are ADORABLE in your favorite chef jacket!!

I will be ordering something from you one of these days...I need something sweet. STAT.

Also....I loved *fully* the Dora cake. Not that I would want one personally...but you did s GREAT job with that one.

lol @ Anna's comment

Michael C said...

I am soooooo glad you got to meet AA and that she had you do her cake. You are both awesome in my book!

And yes, someday, you will be shipping a cake across the country to me. Although it won't be a lightsaber...


Momo Fali said...

You have such an amazing talent!! The cakes are beautiful!

chefmom said...

Meleah: Thanks! That jacket is so perfectly worn in a dn it's all cotton, so it breathes nicely. I Wil be crushed the day it finally falls apart!! You do need something sweet...We'll have a little party, but my 1 request would be that it's without having to call 911!!

Michael C: Yes, it was great to meet her!! AN someday you'll get a the shape of a fondue pot perhaps?

Momo: Thanks dahling!!! This weekend is Bob the builder and a transformer! (not to sure how that's going to turn out!)

meleah rebeccah said...

Oh C'mon! We love 911 and Pre Pubescent Paramedics !!


chefmom said...

Mel: It would be just fine with me, as long as Hot Paramedics showed, not pre-pubescent ones!
