I spent the last few weeks planning for this weekend. So much happened! Between working my actual job, attending training sessions at the gym, visiting friends and shopping for all things sweet things got a little hectic. Not complaining one bit because this is what I truly love to do. I have been so inspired lately by my everyday life I was so happy to let in show in my cakes this weekend.
Here you will find some photos of the wedding cake and baby shower cake I did. My first ombré, woo!
Everyone loves a little Fate Tire…or at least they should!
Was able to attend the wedding with one of my most favorite people in life.
Today I’m relearning what it’s like to do nothing but workout, sip coffee, watch movies and online shop. Oh how I have missed these kinds of days. Bliss.
I’m sipping red wine. Cab Sauv to be exact. Secret, I don’t drink red wine. Insert comment: Never deny red wine during a wine tasting though. I have this phobia of my teeth becoming stained…I know, I know. I’ll stop.
Last week I traveled to Denver, CO. I’m sure of it that without question I left my heart there. The place was stunning. Everything I wanted to do and see, happened. I was completely in awe at how nice the people were. The laid back lifestyle is exactly what I am all about. Did I mention that it is basically the beer capitol of the USA? You could say I tasted my fair share of local as well as non local beers. How could I not? My liver just loves me, I know.
LITERALLY THE MOST PERFECT TRIP.
I must tell you I was beyond excited for my trip to Denver except I had to get one major thing out of the way first the day before leaving. I spent all week working on an event for a precious little girl. Celebrating a first birthday is a milestone in my book. Granted as a one year old you really have NO idea what is happening, it’s more of a party for the adults in attendance. The gramps and grams that get to pinch your cheeks and admire how cute you are while you just look at them like they are beyond crazy. I mean I think that is what happens. It’s what I observe at least.
When asked to do this event, I immediately said YES. When I was told it was a peacock theme, I got even more excited. The ideas began spinning in my lil’ blonde haired head.
On the menu was a Pink Champagne Cake with Raspberry Buttercream Filling. Nutella filled Chocolate Cupcakes. Oreo Ball Bites.
And thus I created what I thought was a super elegant, fun and adorable first birthday party treat.
Traveling + Cupcakes. Two of my most favorite things in life. OH and now Voodoo Doughnuts…
It is currently 12:52 AM as I write this sentence. I most likely won’t be falling asleep, let me rephrase that, attempting to fall asleep for at least another hour. Yes, YouTube is my essential go to tonight to snatch up some quality time admiring my favorite boy band…no shame, never…to pass by the time. Time to not think about work in the kitchen. Time to not think about the amount of Ravioli’s I’ve got to make tomorrow. Time to not think about if I shall workout or consider the 10 + plus hours on my feet in the kitchen my workout. Stop me!
So this is the part where I am filling you in on what I did this past weekend. A lovely bridal shower for two very sweet people. Things like this actually put me at ease and in my natural element.
Scroll on down to see just a glimpse of the things that I created. THANKS to my wonderful mother for help with collecting ingredients, flowers and more.
To all the people up in the world at the moment, HI. Stay tuned for more pictures, recipes & stories!
Back to my regular “scheduled” programing tonight. (5 Seconds of Summer & One Direction) videos…yes. yes. yes.
