Here is my pretty and talented mom! This was taken at my brother's wedding a year ago~
Here's a recent pic, my brother with their new baby. Grandma is very happy!
I'm going celebrate my mother by bragging about one of her favorite hobbies; her cake decorating talent. (You may want to stop and grab a glass of milk!) She used to take orders when I was little, now she just does it for fun, or for people she knows. Here she's adding "Luna" the moon to my son's Bear in the Big Blue House cake from his second birthday.
This is the Toy Story cake I was telling you about. I asked her to do Andy's room, it turned out so cute! The blocks are cake too, and the headboard is a cookie.
She made this cowboy hat cake for my son's first birthday. Yeehawww, carrot cake!
My wedding cake~ these photos don't do it justice
My brother's wedding cake~
A replica of my inlaw's original cake for their 50th wedding anniversary~ along with photos of the cake from their wedding day
Here's the original!
My cousin's cake~ the couple wanted a very earthy/woodsy cake with fairies. The bride got tears in her eyes when she saw it! Ladybugs, acorns, leaves and wild mushrooms adorn this cake.
A fall wedding cake~
Her most recent cake for a western themed wedding anniversary~complete with edible barbed wire
She also does pannoramic sugar eggs for Easter. I have my friend Becca to thank for this photo from http://bluebirdroses.blogspot.com/2006_04_01_archive.html as I don't have a decent pic. Everything is edible, even the bunny, chic, and birdbath. I always loved Easter time because I got to eat any critters that got broken! My dad usually helped do the bunny faces.
Gingerbread is another art of my mom's. She has won a few prizes in contests she's entered. One was a trip to Florida. The chef that she beat was a sore loser and destroyed his own creation after the judging! The house in these pictures was a display at a contest and had been there quite a while by this point, so some of the decoration was begining to fall off. (People pick at them too!) See the stained glass window?
