Tyler's confirmation cake

Tyler's parents wanted to surprise him with a non-traditional confirmation cake.  They wanted to include both baseball and softball as well, since they're Tyler's favorite sports.

I made a figurine of the very athletic Tyler, and he's got a baseball bat in one hand, a lacrosse stick in the other.  His parents loved the figurine so much, they saved it in the freezer!

The cake is chocolate with oreo filling and vanilla frosting.  Peanut-free since Tyler can't have peanuts.

Congrats on your confirmation Tyler!

Graduation for Steven and Ryan

A graduation cake for lifelong friends Steven and Ryan who are excellent lacrosse players. Instead of a traditional graduation cake (a flat cake with a graduation cap on it), I made them a graduation "scrapbook," complete with photos of the boys from childhood through high school, gum paste lacrosse sticks (those were tricky to make, especially in the rainy weather we've been having!), sugar skis and a mountain too. I love this kind of highly personalized cake; it tells a story.
Congrats to Steven and Ryan!! Best of luck to you both in college. And to their parents, who won't get to see them so much any more, if you're sad and missing your boys, there's always cake therapy!
