Kiss it goodbye!

lips

A few weeks back I did some ombre lip cake pops for a bridal shower where the theme was to kiss single life goodbye! These were definitely some of the most difficult cake pops that I have ever done, but also the ones I was the most pleased with by the time I was done. I am absolutely obsessed with this ombre style so utilizing that trend in the color of my chocolate was so fun! Normally when doing cake pops I mold the shapes by hand, but for this shower I used a chocolate mold to help me make them look perfect! (I included the link if anyone is interested in buying the same mold.)

Here is the cake that I made for the shower as well. The shower had striped linens (so did the invites) so I tried to incorporate that into the cake along with fresh peonies to go on top. I have to say that peonies has to be one of my favorite flowers. They are so fluffy and fun looking, I just can’t help but smile when I see a nice bouquet of these flowers! ┬áMaking this cake was more difficult then I imagined it would be because I didn’t realize how tricky it is to put a fondant stripe perfectly straight onto a cake so in this instance I had to call on both my mom and my husband to help put them on! Of course (as always) my mom was a huge help with this baking job. She is my biggest supporter and I am truly thankful for her always wanting (and willingness) to help me bake in the kitchen. I love you mom, more than you will ever know!

Sarah & Mitch get hitched!

One of the best couples I know got married last night and it was seriously one of the cutest DIY weddings I have been to. Down to every last detail, you could see how much love and hard work was put into making this occasion one to remember. I am so happy for you Sarah and Mitch and can’t wait to see what God has in store for both of you in this next season of life. You are both such a great example of what a God-fearing couple (and now marriage) should look like. Thanks for letting me be a part of the magic and making your wedding cake. Love you both!

(Sorry for the pixelated-ness, my phone couldn’t quite capture all the details last night, but hopefully I will be able to get some of the professional pictures soon so I can post those)
