Cakes, cakes, and more cakes!

I started making cakes a little over a year ago and through friends and family managed to stay quite busy with them. They are my little labors of love and I have really enjoyed being able to create something that makes people smile! Since we moved to Tulsa a couple weeks ago I have taken some time off and am not sure when I'll start persuing business again here. I think I almost experienced cake burnout from taking on too many orders a week. But the more time I spend away the more I'm starting to miss them, so we'll just have to see what comes of it!

Here are some of my cakes I have made this past year.
