A Few Last Cakes... (one is Harry Potter themed though!)

Hi there! It's been a while... sorry about that!

But it's summer here in New England, so if the weather is good then we don't much work done. Between holidays and graduations and anniversaries, it's hard to find time to be creative. I did get a chance to throw my long-awaited Harry Potter party in honor of the Deathly Hallows Part 2 release! And I've got two more cakes to share with you for now, but then I'm taking a little vacation and a mega Cake Break so I can work on my art! I've got a real live client now, hee hee, so I'm refocusing my creative energies!

Here's a nice chocolately one:

And here's my latest Pride and Joy... a new personal favorite! A Harry Potter themed Going-Away-to-College cake. for two cousins who are bestest pals! I made a Boo Boo and wrote UNH instead of UCONN, (I must have been half asleep when I did that) however I was able to fix it in a jiffy though I didn't get the chance to take a photo.

kindly turn thy head...

The kids each get an owl finger puppet to take with them to college... complete with a tiny parcel full of tiny good-luck wishes!

Next time I post there should be actual drawings! I can't wait to share with you my latest project!

50th Anniversary Cake...and some GOOD NEWS!

Hi there!

Hope your summer is going well so far! Mine certainly is... and I've got some good news I'll share with you after I post photos of the latest cake. Here they are:

And my Good News? It looks like I may have a new client! Things are not yet set in stone, however it looks promising! All I can tell you right now is that I would be illustrating a self-published early chapter book that is not only a science theme but will also be a comic/graphic novel! I will keep you updated on the status, and if the Author wishes to share sketches and things, hopefully those will be up soon too! :D (So I have been drawing lately, I just haven't been able to post the art until it's the right time.)
