Returned With Honor

I am blessed to have friends here in Utah who believe in me enough to recommend me to other friends.  This was my first cake job in Utah from a referral.  I copied the design from the fabulous April who taught me most of what I know.  She's so dang creative!  I don't quite have the piping skills of a master yet, but overall I think it came out very charming.  Welcome Home Elder Cypers!


 I kind of feel like I begged my wonderful friend to let me make her baby's first birthday cake.  She swears she wanted me too, but after about 2 months of not making a cake, I was dying to get back in the saddle and I wanted it to be with a fun cake.  She asked for a "zoo animal" cake for baby to dig into with cupcakes for the rest of them, and then let me run wild (pun intended).  This super cute lion won my heart, and I love how the cupcakes turned out.
