I'm finally back!

Yes, it has only been about two weeks, but that has seemed like forever! I have good reason though. I've been busy in the kitchen - baking! I'm even going to have to cut it short today. I'm only posting two photos today - Emilio's boxing gloves and Ruben's "21" cake. I did an awesome Tinkerbell cake on July 4, but of course, I forgot to take a pic. I was very bummed about that. I LOVED how it came out!

Other tidbits before I get to the photos. Jose Fiestas Rental is moving right along - A GREAT JOB!! I can't wait for all of you to see the final product! You are not going to want to leave the shop. Second, don't forget to book your XV or wedding cake with plenty of notification! Same goes for your regular orders. I need at least 48 hours notice for my minimum order. I can't guarantee anything after that. Finally, I'm planning my yearly vacation. I'll let you all know when it is coming up so you can prepare yourself.

Now onto the goods :) I was proud of Emilio's boxing gloves. They were the first ones I ever did and I'd have to say not bad for a first time. I know what I need to improve on for next time though.

And then we have Ruben's "21". This was DEFINITELY a changing process. Not really what I had envisioned from the get-go, but I like it. The blistering heat was not it's friend as the day progressed, but nonetheless he liked it. Again, I know what I would like to improve on for next time. What do you think?

Busy, exciting week!

Last week was a busy - that's for sure! Along with some last minute orders (that I was able to fit in) I had my 4th of July cake, some church cupcakes and my nephew's birthday cake. But the most exciting news happened earlier last week. I can't go much into detail, but let's just say that some BIG news is going to be coming from Jose Fiestas Rental and Kreaciones Kity. It's all very exciting! I know you are going to love it!

I didn't have my camera with me, so no pictures of the two cakes or cupcakes. The cupcakes looked delicious! Strawberry cupcakes with whipped vanilla icing topped with sprinkles and a marachino cherry...mmmm!

You'll have to wait for a photo of my nephew's cake. He has to see it first! I can't ruin the surprise. :)

I am very much looking forward to this weekend however - time for Ruben's big "21" cake! I can't wait. If all goes to plan, it'll going to be amazing! I'll need to start working on some of the gumpaste work tonight.

Thanks for checking in with me and as always, hit me up for the cakes and peace out!
