My First Naked Cake

My first naked cake. I wasn’t sure what else to title this and that seemed fitting. This was my first attempt at making a pretty, naked cake and it won’t be my last! This one was from the 4th of July and I cannot wait to make another! Already have an idea for my next one. Maybe, I will make it for myself for the new website launch? Not a bad idea!

I am thinking pink, coral and gold for my next naked cake!


4th of July Basket

Happy July! The 4th of July is definitely one of my favorite holidays! Living so close to the water has been amazing, and we waste no time getting out there on the weekends! A sweet friend gifted me this perfect boat basket for a wedding shower gift and it has come in handy more than a few times. Thank you, Suzanne! I thought it would be essential for our 4th of July holiday and watching the fireworks by the pier.


Don’t mind the defrosting fruit below:
