Baby Boy Stanley (Gender Reveal!)

Gender Reveal Cake from Order in the Kitchen

Welcome Baby Boy Stanley to the world!!!

Hello little one!  We are so happy that you are here! :)  My colleague, Laura, has just had her baby and thanks to my ridiculously poor blogging efforts, I failed to post the gender reveal party cake that I made for her many months ago when we first found out the gender of her little baby.  Here are the pictures from making the cake and the gender reveal party we had for her at work.  Now that you know it’s a boy, it may not be quite as secretive and exciting, but I had the best time making this cake!

OinK's version of the "Best Birthday Cake"

SOOOO my co-worker and friend, Ashley was having a birthday and I figured, why get her a store-bought cake when I could make one especially for her?  Her favorite cake is yellow with chocolate frosting, and fortunately, I stumbled across this.  Smitten Kitchen’s “Best Birthday Cake”.  I used her exact recipe, so I won’t post it here, but it turned out amazing…especially the frosting, which wasn’t too sweet but had an incredible flavor!   Continue reading

Happy 3rd Birthday Puppy!

 

Puppy Birthday

 

Sooooo, exciting news!  Little Muggsy turned 3 years old!  3 whole years old!

A very special cake for a very special Birthday Girl!

A very special cake for a very special Birthday Girl!Yesterday, my friend Marina had a birthday.  I won’t tell you how old she is but I’ll tell you that she is definitely a glamour girl… a princess… a girl who loves to and deserved to party in style.  So nothing felt more right than making her a glittery, girly, princess-y cake!  I had been brainstorming for weeks.  Planning and pinning the best ideas I had found and inspiration for what I wanted to create for her.  If you don’t know what I mean by pinning, here you go.  You’re welcome.  {Don’t blame me when you get addicted…just warning you}
