Oh No! No Photos!

Can you believe that I did not get one single photo of the one single cake I did this week? Funnily enough, Charlotte (a woman who shares a name with my lovely tenacious daughter) arrived quite early this morning, before I could snap any photos. This was much to my dismay. I did ask her to send me some pics when she got a chance, so hopefully she will! The cake was a 1 tiered zoo animal cake. Since Charlotte was going to have a balloon theme, I made fondant balloons on wires for all the animals to hold. It was too cute!

So, this week being as slow as it was, I Googled Butterfly Sweets. I'll admit, it is a LITTLE silly to Google yourself, but I got curious as to what people out there are saying about the bakery! And do you know what I found? All sorts of awesome blogs that I have been a part of! I just wanted to share a couple of cool ones. Forgive me, I just thought it was flattering to be mentioned. ;)

My Turquoise Cake with Scroll Work must be pretty popular, because it was featured in two blogs-The Planner Pages and Bliss Wedding Market.










This one I have always found amusing. The man's name is Adam, and he posted a first birthday cake I did for a little boy named Adam to be his first birthday cake. http://blogs.menupages.com/chicago/category/menupages_news/

This cake used me for inspiration on Topsy-Turvy Cakes, and fondant. http://www.squidoo.com/decorate-with-fondant

This one called Dreamers Events is a really beautiful website that featured my Rose and Hydrangea Cake. http://dreamersevents.wordpress.com/ Favor Ideas also featured the same cake: http://www.favorideas.com/learn-about/wedding-planning/choosing-your-wedding-colors/





One of my favorite is written by a woman who was born under a Magnolia Tree, and is currently planning her wedding in Manhattan. She liked my Girlie First Birthday Cake. http://magnoliasmarriageandmanhattan.blogspot.com/

http://www.eagerlittlemind.com/ also posted two of my photos, but I am not sure if they liked my cakes or not! They weren't too complimentary-they don't like fondant and think my cakes are too busy! lol!

A really fun one is a site that compares lamps to cakes: http://lampsandcakes.blogspot.com/ They loved my Cupcake Cakes!

I am one of http://thecakekid.blogspot.com/ favorite Cake Sites.


http://snazzy-cakes.blogspot.com/ Has some references as well.

Anyways, I hope this wasn't too painfully boring to read! I love discovering new cake blogs, and was hoping some of you would enjoy it as well.
Have a great weekend!

Hi! I'm the blogger over at eargerlittlemind. I do really like your cakes!! Sorry I gave the impression that I didn't. (But I do prefer buttercream over fondant. Maybe I just haven't had the right person make it.)

Oh no-that's OK! I thought it was funny! LOTS of people dislike fondant. Thanks for your input! ;)

These cakes are fantastic! My mouth is watering, though I have to admit it would take a lot to make me cut into these fine designs. What lovely energy and joy you bring to your work!

Wow, that is a really sweet compliment Lynda. Thank you! I love making gorgeous cakes.
