Whew!

I'm done with the cakes and they are gone to their new homes! YAY!
The big bridal shower cake wasn't as pretty as I'd liked it to be, but it is so hard to make a 1/2 sheet look beautiful. Not my favorite shape. I have a bad picture of it, and will try to get another.
There was basketweave along the sides but it doesn't show here. I went with a cream cheese icing, but cut the cream cheese a bit and added more butter.

The birthday cake for Kennedy was really cute, I don't have a picture of it put together, and will try to get one of those also. I'd made a banner out of fondant with her name to sit around the bottom layer, and some squiggly things to hang between layers, so they won't be in these pics.

Top Layer
Bottom Layer

Both of these were buttercream with fondant decorations, and I'd never done that before- but they did work alright. I put them in the fridge and no issues (that have been reported yet!)

Today is mom's open house too- hope it sells today! :)
*Note- Scott raced in a bike ride for diabetes this weekend (50 miles) and made it! He even took the kids to the movies afterwards! I am really impressed!
