Baby Shower Cake

I recently, as in today, did a baby shower cake.
I was told the little one is a girl and will be named Emma. (How sweet?!)
The mother to be's favorite color is yellow.
We had a picture to sort of go off of but this is what I came up with:

There were also some extra cookies which sadly were too large to fit on the cake.

How is that crown held up you ask?
I cut two straws (about the depth of the cake) with the bendy parts attached.
I placed them behind where the crown would sit and bent the straw over to help hold it.
Does that make sense? Haha! Regardless, I then covered that up with icing.  

The same client who ordered the above cake -- ordered the below cake in November.

Hope you have a wonderful week!
Stay warm!

Runner's Block? I Think Not!

I believe I may have just decided to do the dumbest thing I've done in a while.
However, its a new year, so why not start it off with a bang?!

I just signed up to do a challege of running 100 miles in the month of January.
And in case you weren't aware, it's cold outside.
And I hate the cold.

This should be fun.
