The ghosts and goblins are lurking around the corner

A pot of witche's tea is brewing...

The bats are flying overhead

and some are scared out of their skin

while others are doing the monster dance

Trick or Treat?

Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Sweetly yours,

Highlights from the weekend

One olive or two?

Happy 30th Birthday Kristie! To celebrate Kristie's big birthday, her mom ordered a yellow cake with chocolate butter cream icing. Fondant was used for the martini glass, olives and pink dots.
Kristie's mom also placed an order for sugar cookies for the game this weekend with Oklahoma , Sooners and Texas, Longhorns. Her mom is a Sooner fan and her longtime friend is a big fan of the Longhorns. The tradition has been for years when both teams play one another at the Cotton bowl, they have a big football party. Cookies by day and birthday cake by night.

Another big event this weekend, was Teresa and Brian's autumn wedding.
The wedding cake was a 5 tier square with layers of our traditional white, pineapple, and strawberry cake. The cake was decorated with scroll work in buttercream. Completing the final touch of each tier we added a deep rich warm brown satin ribbon. The beautiful cake top arrangement in two tone orange roses was created by Jessica's Floral.
The grooms cake flavor was chocolate fudge with chocolate buttercream icing. Chocolate fudge icing was used for the detail scrolling, beading and the initial " B". As a young boy growing up Brain's favorite snack was Hostess Ding Dongs, so we incorporated a few to his grooms cake.
Their wedding ceremony took place outside at the south end of Red Oak's Municipal Center, followed by an indoor reception.
Congratulations Teresa and Brian! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness and wonderful memories!

Confectionately yours,


P. S. Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post for the give a-way.

A New Toni and Guy Graduate

Congratulations Janelle!

Janelle graduated from Toni and Guy Hair Studio located in Addison, Texas. If you are in the area and need a new hair stylist, send me an email.

Janelle's cake was Icing's traditional chocolate fudge cake and butter cream icing, with fondant appliques of scissors and a blow dryer plugged into an outlet. One of our signature designs and popular request is having emboss writing around the sides of the cake in the same color as the frosting.

Confectionately yours,
