Camryn's 1

For Cami's 1st birthday I guess I couldn't shake my love for the ocean so she got a happy octopus cake complete with undersea creatures (if you look close you can also see the rosy cheeks on the octopus). Beanie helped me form the octopus tentacles out of cereal treats and also formed the fish, starfish, crab, bottom dweller, shells, etc. that adorned the bottom of the cake; there was even a clam with a shiny pearl. The water portion initially gave us some problems but after a 2nd try I think it looked perfect.

Rock A Bye Baby

We had a rocking baby shower for my sister in-law who is having a little boy at the end of the month. It was awesome! My sisters and I made all the decorations, invitations, and deserts for the shower and my mom made her awesome caramel-chocolate pretzels. All I know is that I have some freaking talented siblings. My dad helped me make our rocking cupcake stand made out of old records (so sweet)! Oh, we also made a diaper cake that looked like a guitar.
We made a pregnant Kim complete with her own killer guitar, Beanie helped me make all the cupcake toppers to put on the freshly homemade by Kim cupcakes (yup, we made Kim make her own cupcakes because she is way to awesome and no one else can make them like she does). Can't wait to meet the little rock star!

She did have flowers on top as well but the florist hadn't gotten there yet so I didn't get pictures with the flowers.
