My baby sister is married!

It was an extended weekend full of family, friends, laughter, and tears (the good kind)!

We all came together to celebrate the marriage of my sister, Molly Buckley, and her groom John Stillman (my new brother-in-law!).  They were married at New Hope Church, in Durham, NC.  There ceremony was an amazing combination of theater, family, and religion.  A perfect fit for both of them, and unforgettable for the rest of us!  My 19 month old son even managed to walk down the aisle, cleaning up the flower girl’s rose petals along the way.

After the vows were said and pictures were taken we continued the celebration at The Big Barn in Hillsborough, NC.  The reception was a beautiful country theme that was completely designed and produced by Molly.  She did such an amazing job that it was quite a task to make a wedding cake, and surprise groom’s cake, that lived up to it’s surroundings.










Fortunately, although they were perplexed on how to cut it, they were happy with the outcome!

I even got kudos from their incredible photographer, Katelyn James!

It was a weekend  I will never forget and feel so honored to be given the privelage to make their wedding cake!

Thanks Molly & John, I love you both very much!


My sister is getting married!

In just 17 days my little sister, Molly Buckley,  will be marrying a great guy!  Wow!  And if that is not special enough, I had the privilege of giving her a bridal shower!  This, of course, included making her bridal shower cake.  It had to be something that fit Molly perfectly.  Since she LOVES anything pink and is a Phi Mu girl, this is what I came up with.

She loved it!

I now have the exciting task of creating their perfect wedding cake!

Wish me luck!

It’s Ladies Night!

Kids-R-Kids hosted “Ladies Night” last night.  The night was filled with great shopping, great food, great drinks, great friends, and you guessed it…great cake from Cakes by B!

The cakes featured were:

Cocktail Cupcakes (Strawberry Margarita, Mojito, and Cosmopolitan)

Cake Truffles (Devil’s Food Cake with Cookies & Cream, and Moist Yellow Cake with Vanilla Buttercream)

And a Baby Shower Cake for display

It was great fun and two lucky winners got to take some treats home!

It’s finally here!

There’s a chill beginning in the air, the leaves are changing, and every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday people are gathering to cheer on their favorite teams.  That’s right…the football season has returned!  A season filled with good friends, good times, and good food.

Here are a couple of sweet treats that would make the perfect finale to any football party spread.

A Princess Pirate birthday party!

And how does that work exactly, you may ask…like this!

This party highlighted the jewels, but you could always go with the more “piratey” skull and crossbones.

What ever your theme is Cakes by B can make the perfect cake for you!
