Classic Navy & Gold Celebration

When asked to make a navy and gold themed cake and macarons for my sister's 20th birthday party, my first thought was "is it a nautical party?"
Well, this was much more fun to make than a cake with an anchor and ropes!
Always fun to make brightly colored macarons, especially in French Vanilla and Lemon flavors, mmmm; and what is better than a brush of gold on top!
I absolutely loved the rich tones of the navy flower and how the gold just made it pop!
I just couldn't get enough pictures! I loved the gold and blue!
I decided Navy and Gold were the perfect combo for a classy party dessert table!

Girly Beach Cake

I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake for the sweet little birthday girl Zoey who requested a beach party cake with a turtle on top! A turtle beats a cherry on top any day, I say!
I have to say, this was one of my favorite cakes I've done. It was inspired by a photo the birthday girl saw online and liked so I kept some elements and added a few other touches, including the turtle!
LOVED the turtle! I loved the way the little smile turned out...
and how the face appeared to be staring up from the top of the cake to the birthday girl!
Plumeria have always been one of my favorite flowers, even though these didn't smell as good as a beach in Hawaii, they did the job for a cake!
Smiles for the birthday girl!
