Summer Time Fun!

 Lately my blog posts haven't really been "topic" related...more along the lines of "Sweet Ivy Tries To Play Catch Up"...haha!
But that's ok!
I'm always excited to share my latest projects!
The cake above was for a co-worker's granddaughter.
She was celebrating her birthday and requested this special design!
I did 40 cupcakes and a small 6 inch cake for the birthday girl.
The cakes were all strawberry in flavor topped with a classic homemade buttercream.
The technique I did on the side of the 6 inch cake made me think of fishy fins...that's why I added that...last minute thought that came to me, ha!
Happy birthday Bella!
 This cookie platter was done for a friend of mine who has been going through a rough time physically lately.  When you're struggling physically, it's very easy to start struggling emotionally.  It's hard to stay positive while everyone around you is going about their usual routine.  I wanted to bring some cheer to my special friend.  I chose these bright cheerful colors and did a buttery vanilla cookie with royal icing d├ęcor.
My continued prayers are with you Kim!
 These cake pops were for a coworker of mine.
They were for someone's birthday.
They were done in French vanilla cake and dipped in white chocolate.
I added some pink and green sprinkles for extra cheer!
Happy birthday!
And lastly, I did this baby bouquet for a friend of ours.
We have a sweet friend who, twice this summer, has been our house-sitter, kitty-sitter, plant-waterer, mail-getter, set-out-the-trash-dumperer, and anything else I asked her to do!
She is the SWEETEST ever!
So I not only gifted her with cash, but also a Sweet Ivy Confections gift certificate.
And...being the kind person she is...she didn't even use the gift certificate on herself!
She requested a baby bouqet for her sister-in-law who was expecting a baby!
(I told you she was sweet!)
This bouquet included buttery vanilla cookies decorated in royal icing, and French vanilla cake pops dipped in white chocolate.
Congratulations to the new momma!
And thank-you to our sweet friend Selena!
Well, that wraps up my "Summer Catch-Up"...
I hope you had a wonderful summer!
I'm so looking forward to fall!
Not only the weather, but all of the baking that comes with it!
Beautiful autumn sugar cookies and pumpkin spice EVERYTHING!
If I can ever be of assistance with your birthdays, baby or wedding showers, parties, reunions, or whatever the event...just holla!
TTFN!
