Sweet Sixteen

Kaitlin from church was turning 16 and so her mom hired me to make the cake. Unfortunately, I had no idea it was supposed to be a surprise and so when I ran into Kaitlin one day, I told her how excited I was to be able to make a fun cake for her. Oops!! Anyways, it worked out, her mom wasn't upset and everything was cool. Whew.....
I decided that it would be fun to make a cake and cupcakes. So here they are....

The cake almost ended in disaster when I went to slide it on the counter and it fell!!!! I seriously came close to a heart attack but luckily I have quick reflexes and lots of luck and I caught it perfectly in my hands and there was NO damage!! It could not have landed more perfectly in my hands. It was a miracle!!! I set the cake on the counter, went and sat down and calmed my nerves. Once my heart rate got back down to it's normal beat and the sick feeling in my stomach subsided, I started assembling everything. I was very careful to pay close attention to every single move I made from there on out.

Kaitlin's favorite colors are pink and purple.

She had an awesome time visiting New York earlier this year and I wanted to incorporate that into her cake.

She's such a sweetie and loves the Book of Mormon. I made this out of fondant. Is is sacrilegious to eat the BOM?? I don't know, but it sure looked cute!

She's looking forward to driving so a car on the open road was the perfect addition! The only thing this is missing is a big yellow "Caution" sign! LOL!!

Kaitlin loves playing piano.

She Chooses the Right! I told you she was a sweetie!

And she's slightly crazy too because she loves algebra!

I made six of these cupcakes. Aren't they cute???
I got a late start in making this cake and so I didn't get to admire my work for very long before it was headed out for delivery.
Happy Birthday Kaitlin!! Happy Sweet Sixteen! Thanks for allowing me to make you a fun cake.

You're so creative. I like the little car and the road and everything the best. Oh my gosh I would have had a heart attack as well! Great catch!
