The new design is called Jade because I was designed for Jade Clanton's birthday. I don't know if it is because Jade is a little princess or what, but the thought of making a cake for her birthday really got the creative mind going. It's a design that I am incredibly proud of and if it turns out half and good as what I have drawn out it will be a huge success! I am struggling a little bit with the background color. I had originally planned to do a deep rose/pink color with pale pink accents. When I was putting the test pieces together those colors ended up clashing. I was thinking of doing purple background but I don't want it to take away from the pink and I think it will, and I thought about doing a creme colored background but I'm a little concerned that one of the accent pieces will blend right in. A pale yellow also came to mind but then I worry that it will clash with the gold and I wanted this to be a brightly colored cake. I think my only option is to make a test teir and figure out which color is going to look best with the pale pink accents. I'm hoping to not have to change the color of the accent pieces, but if that is what I have to do then that's what I'll do. I may surf the net and look at some pictures with color options.
I would normally just let the colors clash because some children's cakes look good with clashing colors, but I know Jade is a little fashionista and would probably call me out on my colors not matching. Hahaha. Regardless, it's going be to great. I can't wait to post pictures! I will post pictures of my "test teirs" so I can get some input.

This cookie pizza was amazing! My brother-in-law was really wanting a cookie pizza so we made this together. I made the cookie crust and he made the chocolate sauce. We were going to add some more toppings but it was wonderful with just the M&M's. I haven't thought about selling these, but if someone wanted one I would...of course. This is the perfect treat for a sleep over or just hanging around the house with the kids. Serve it warm, the melty M&M's and the warm cookie is perfect!Who doesn't love red velvet? This was devine! The creamy frosting is thick but not too rich. It was wonderful. Order your red velvet and enjoy today!
