Thanks to my dear friends at The Bridal Extravaganza, I will be appearing on Good Things Utah on Tuesday March 24th. I'm so excited for this opportunity to show off my cakes and am blown away that I was asked. It's going to be a little nerve racking to watch all the girls from the show eat my cake on live television (ahhhh). I hope they like it! Wouldn't that be awful if you were on a food segment and the hosts actually spit your food out? Man.. worst nightmare right there.
Anyway... tune in to Good Things Utah on Channel 4 at 10:00-11:00am next Tuesday morning. Thank you Bridal Extravaganza!

Special Occasion Cakes are a blast to make. A lot like grooms cakes, special occasion cakes can be fun and very customized. This is a cake I did for a wakeboard lover who was turning 30. His wife threw him a surprise party and wanted a cake that represented her hubby's love for his boat. This cake is a replica of his own boat and his cute family cheering him on from inside. Steve is an avid air chair guy so the cake wouldn't have been complete without him behind the boat in action.
If you are ever in need of a special occasion, a cake with personality like this not only will taste good, but will be a conversation piece throughout the whole night.
Steve.. I hope you had a great 30th birthday.. Now if it could only get warmer out in this Utah weather so you could get out on the lake!

Leah and Ben.. you guys are a great couple! Your reception was beautiful and I loved seeing you both when I delivered your cake. Leah.... I LOVED your dress. You looked gorgeous!
Making a wedding cakes is always a lot of work, but it is so great when you know you are doing it with the bride and groom in mind. I love being able bring your ideas and thoughts to life in cake. The willow tree statue was the perfect cake topper. What a great idea! I have many brides ask what to do for cake toppers... I might just have to steal your idea and tell them how great yours looked.
I hope you had an awesome wedding day and honeymoon!
Whitney and her cute mom came and met with me a few months ago and knew exactly what they wanted. The "crooked square" cakes are growing in popularity this season. Whitney loved her cake! It is such a reward to see the smiles on the brides face when she sees her cake come to life.
Whitney... You looked beautiful, your cute little nieces were adorable in their dresses and I hope you and a wonderful wedding day! Thank you for letting me be a small part of it!
This cake was done for the cutest girl named Mindy. She and her fiance are getting married out of state, but wanted to celebrate with all their friends and family here in town. An engagement cake is a perfect way to add that special touch to your party. We had so much fun designing this cake. Mindy wanted the topsy turvy look which was the perfect style with the goblets on top.
Mindy.... I wish you the best of luck on your wedding!
This is a great cake if you want a classic elegant cake that has a modern twist to it. The draped fondant on the middle tier is a great way to create the look of your wedding dress on your cake. The embossed flowers soften the look as well as adds a touch of femininity.
