A Baby Shower

I had my very first baby shower Saturday night and I had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that it was going to be in Claire's backyard, planned by her and our good friend Mikaela. The beauty of Claire's transformed yard was amazing. The photos really don't do it justice, but here is a glimpse at our baby boy's beautiful shower -

Thank you so much Claire and Mikaela, I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful shower. You girls are amazing!

Birds & Buttons

Well, after quite the long (and unintentional) hiatus, I am now back to keep posting what I love to do...cakes and crafts!

Claire and I made our very first wedding cake together this past weekend and it just so happens to be my favorite one!

For those interested in the logistics...the tiny birds are made out of gumpaste that we colored and were then cut out using a cookie cutter. The large birds are also colored gumpaste, but were done freehand. The buttons are different sized circle cutters with the rest done freehand. The branches are painted on.

It was a super fun cake to make and I am glad we had the honor to do it!
