Thinking S-P-O-O-K-Y!!

Fall is officially here! And brings with it the busiest time of the year for me - and not even all holiday related - birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers.

But, it's not too early to start thinking about HALLOWEEN! It will be here before you know it! Keep me in mind for cakes, cupcakes & candies - even teachers appreciate sweet treats at Halloween!

Not just birthdays, special occasions too!

This setup will likely get it's own post soon, for all the details, as there was more than just a topper cake & mini cupcakes. For now, though a 6" cake with matching mini cupcakes for a School Board candidate's Meet & Greet.

A baby shower cake (made to coordinate with the mom-to-be's nursery & the invitation)

My first "official" wedding cake - a 6" topper to go with the 9 dozen cupcakes & 6 dozen mini cupcakes. I'm waiting for pictures from the event of the entire set up!

Another topper & mini cupcakes for a baby shower

And last but not least, not a special occasion cake but one that I had fun creating! This cake was ordered by a friend who wanted to "show me off" at her office so she gave me free reign. I think it's adorable!

2 weeks of birthday cakes!

It's certainly been busy around The Sweet Spot! As my husband put it, we're smack in the middle of "birthday season". I scoffed at him when he mentioned it, but given the amount of cakes I've done in the last 2 weeks, well, I'm not scoffing anymore!

Here's a peek:

It's time to think about Mother's Day!

This year, due to my daughter's & my husband's birthday falling the week of Mother's Day, I will have to limit the number of orders I can accept for Mother's Day - so if you're thinking you may want something, order now, it's not too early!

Check back soon for Mother's Day ideas!!

Christening Cake

This was the Christening cake for the Elephant 1st birthday boy that I posted last month! Fondant covered with buttercream dots & monogram

M-I-C...K-E-Y...and Minnie, too

My favorite part of these cakes is, of course, the ears! They're Sweet Spots (aka Cake balls) disguised as ears! Completely edible!

Easter & Birthdays

First, Easter treats -
Cupcakes decorated to look like Easter baskets, complete with chocolate bunnies :)
Or perhaps, just some robin's eggs :)

Easter treats for neighbors - 2 cupcakes, 2 sugar cookies with icing in the middle and 4 Sweet Spots - throw in some jelly beans and M&Ms and wrap them up - Viola!

And then, there were some birthdays:
Chocolate cake with cream cheese icing & a chocolate "S" for the birthday girl

Some matching Sweet Spots (aka Cake balls!) for the birthday girl
And a 40th birthday - bottom was Devil's Food with buttercream filling & icing. Top was Strawberry with vanilla mousse & buttercream icing. Candy "40"

Easter Treats

We've got Easter basket cakes:

Easter basket Cupcakes

And an assortment of Easter candies -
Chocolate covered pretzels, Chocolate covered oreos, Hershey Kisses & M&Ms
Order individually or in trays to take for dessert after Easter dinner!

St. Patrick's Day

Cupcakes with white icing, green sugars and Candy Shamrocks (or as Gabriel calls them "three leaf clovers"!)

A St. Patrick's Day cake -
that was green on the inside (what else would it be?!) - Traditional white cake with vanilla mousse & buttercream icing

March Madness!

Though it's a sad March for my Heels, they're getting top billing on my blog anyway!

White icing with a Tar Heel
Though it works just fine with Chocolate icing too!

I can't really say anything nice about the above cake, so I just won't say anything at all!

An NC State inspired birthday cake

Sweet 16

Though most are:

Not all Sweet 16 cakes need to be pink!!

Red & silver with bling suited this birthday girl better!
