Oh, and I made some amazing pies as well, but I'll share them with you at a later date...maybe even throw in a recipe or two. *wink, wink*
But, first, the cakes!
These were for a going away party. Buttercream with fondant pennants and lettering. Oh, and the phrase on the left-hand one? A play off the honoree's nickname (JV), it read "Way to make it to varsity!" Very fun inscription, though admittedly not mine, the client provided the idea!
This next one though, I came up with all by myself. (I'm inordinately proud of my cleverness, I know. My apologies.) Two golf themed retirement cakes, which also needed to include a reference to the retiree's new locale...hmm...to the drawing board!
My solution: a "green" cake with golf club, golf ball, and tees (they even looked wood-grained!), and the pin flag marking the location of his new city on the map of Georgia. The cakes were buttercream, with the accents being made from fondant and/or gumpaste.

Mmmm....look at that scrumptiousness! Saying I was pleased that I had to make cookies this past week would probably be an understatement. I'd been craving them, and this order came along at the perfect time. K and I found the quality control sampling to be a major hardship, I assure you. No worries, though, we came through it unscathed...well, unless you take into account the extra pound or two we might have gained...
