A Time of Thanksgiving

It is always such a treat to work with a bride (and groom) while designing their wedding cake. Many times after the consultation is over, I feel like I have a new friend.  This emotional connection in working together to make their wedding day the best it can be makes my job so much fun.  In this season of Thanksgiving.. that is what I'm thankful for... the joy I have in working and getting to know my clients.  Because of that relationship, the bride is no longer a name from my "contact me" page, but a new friend, and I want to make their cake even better than they imagined it could be. It's all in the "extra" details that are thought about with the bride in mind that make a spectacular cake and a happy bride.
Occasionally, you get a bride that goes out of her way to thank her vendors.  As a vendor, these "thank you's" are worth all the hours you spend away from your family and personal life to make their day special.  Just a little note or even a quick email can make your day and encourage you to keep doing your job.  If I had to choose my top 3 favorite gifts/thank you's I've received, it would be these:
  #1:  Blog Comments
            My most appreciated thank you's come when a bride posts comments on my blog about their cakes.  This not only makes me feel happy that they loved their cake, but I love that they shared it with everyone who is looking at my website and blog.  When you have customer satisfaction and others get to read that, people are more willing to contact you.

  #2:  Thank You Notes
            Many brides have gone out of their way to actually mail me a note showing their appreciation.  In our "cyber world" we live in these days, snail mail is not the most popular form of communication, BUT it is very meaningful when you know someone has taken time to get a piece of paper, write down a quick note, get a stamp, and get it to the post office.  I appreciate the efforts.
Along this same idea, I had a bride make postcards from a picture they had taken on their wedding day and mailed them out with their thank you note on the other side.

  #3:  Small Gift
            I'm not saying I expect brides to give me gifts by any means!   But I did a wedding a few months back where they were giving away chocolates and toffee's in cute little boxes to each of their guests at the reception.  Before I left, the mother of the bride handed me a box of chocolates with my name on it and a nice little note thanking me for the service I had rendered. I was touched by their appreciation that they gave to to me.

When everything is said and done.. with or without a gift, an email, or a note, I am most thankful for my clients.  I love what I do because of them. It is such an honor to be able to be part of one of the happiest days in a couple's life together.    

Thank You for all you do for me!

2009 Utah Chocolate Show- Wedding Cake Competition

The Utah Chocolate Show was this past weekend and I decided to enter into the Wedding Cake Competition.  The theme this year was "Italian Romance" and this is what I came up with.  I was honored and very surprised when they announced my name for two different awards!  In the end.. it was worth all the stress and sleepless nights working on this cake.

Here it is..... It's called, "Mi Amore"
(The cake says... My Love, You are Beautiful, I will always be with you)

2009 Best Chocolate Flowers
2009- Special Recognition by Judges--  "Most Signified Italy"

Maren Re-Visited

I just had to post this AMAZING video from the incredible Dave Perry.  If you are planning a wedding.. you already know how lucky you are if you get Dave to shoot your wedding.
Maren was one of many brides I've been able to work with that I completely adored.  She was the most well organized, paid complete attention to every detail... literally.  (the cake was designed to match her shoes... take note in the film).

Nate + Maren = 8mm Film + Digital Film from David Perry on Vimeo.

I just had to show this video... not just for the cake... but because this video depicts the #1 reasons I do what I do.... I LOVE being a part of the happiest day in people's lives.  What better way to celebrate that than with cake?
Thank you Dave for the great video. Thank you Maren for letting me be a part of your wedding.  If you want to see all of Dave's comments on the video.. click here to view his blog.

Special Event Series #7-- Witches, Witches, Witches

This is the last cake in our Special Event Series.  This cake is a super fun idea if you want to do something very unique and individualized for everyone at your party.  Whether it's 50 people or 10... an personalized or individual cake is a real treat and lets your guests know how special they are.
These individual witch cakes were made for an annual witches tea to celebrate halloween a couple weeks ago.  The host of this party has been throwing witches tea's now for 11 years and she has got the magic touch. All her friends look forward to this party all year long.  When I went to deliver the witch display.. her house was filled with halloween decor, fancy halloween dishes set for a 5 course meal for 50 of her closest "witch" friends (no paper at this house... ALL glass ware.. can you imagine the clean up?)  She dedicated one room just for the witch cake display and let everyone take a witch home with them after the party.
Creativity is the key for individual cakes.  Whether it's little people like in this picture, or small mini cakes in various shapes and designs... your guests will oohhh and awwww when they get their own cake.
These little witches not only looked great... they tasted great too!
    Color coded with their dresses, the guests could choose from raspberry lemonade cake with a lemon cream cheese filling, pumpkin chocolate chip cake with a spiced cream cheese buttercream or a chocolate mint truffle cake with mint ganache.

Special Event Series #6-- More Kid Birthdays

What little boy hasn't dreamed of becoming an astronaut?  This little guy wanted a "space" birthday party for his #8.  I had a blast having a mini "consultation" with him to go over the idea's he wanted for his cake. It's always really fun when I get to meet with kids to talk cake.  They feel so important and they get really excited to see that they are going to have an extra special cake.. just for them.  Kids are only kids for a short time.. I LOVE being able to help make their birthdays unforgettable.

Special Event Series #5-- First Birthday Cakes

Once your a first time mom, you realize that there is not many more important events than your childs first birthday... for some of us... it's ALMOST as important as our wedding day... (OK.. not really.. but we act like it).  I am guilty of this myself.  My first little baby had a killer Baby Einstein birthday party with more friends invited than I think was could fit in my house.  But... it's their first birthday... and it's gotta be big! 
There are so many adorable ways to do a first birthday cake. You can re-create their favorite toy or their favorite character, or you can make it whimsical, kid like and full of fun!
Full of fun is how I depict this cake made for an adorable little baby girl.  Her mom is super stylin with everything she does, wears and buys.. I knew the cake had to be over the top!  Mom put the cute tuille "skirts" around the bottom and top of the cake and made it even extra "girly".  The cupcake on top easily came off for an individual cake for the birthday girl to sink her hands into!

Special Event Series #4-- Graduation Cakes

Graduations are not only an exciting time, but also a wonderful accomplishment that needs to be recognized in a big way!
Graduation cakes can become the hit of the party if they are custom designed with graduate in mind.  This cake is a perfect example of that.  A previous client called me up and said she was throwing a graduation party for her daughters best friend and needed a "cosmotology" cake.  She gave me an idea and this is what I came up with.  Hair Dryer & hair brush made from rice cereal treats, covered in fondant.  The basket is my signature flavor... Orange Velvet.  And the Paul Mitchell Bottles... edible paper wrapped in fondant.
It is super fun to make cakes that are this individualized.  It's all worth it when you see the smiles on the clients faces when you drop it off.
Wheather it's a cake full of hair supllies or an edible diploma... any type of cake for graduations are a real

Special Event Series #3-- Anniversary Cakes

Celebrate an Anniversary..

This cake was for an adorable couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.  The cake was to them as a suprise from their sweet children.   The words... "I loved You Then as I Loved You Now" was a perfect quote to capture the many years these two people have shared together.
If you are planning an anniversary party.. a classic cake like this is always an elegant choice.  You can also try and look through old wedding photos of the couple and bring the cake picture into us and we can re-create their real wedding cake.  It's a fun touch that's sure to bring joyful tears!

Special Event Series #2- Kids Birthdays

Today I'm featuring a little boys dream cake.  Look at this loot! A pirates treasure fit for a kid.  Full of coins, jewels.. and of course... CANDY!!!
 A little "leather" technique and some edible dust powder makes this treasure chest come to life.  Not only does it look great with all the treats on top... the Chocolate Oreo Cake inside is just as yummy.  Chocolate Oreo is always a crowd pleaser.  Especially when little kids are around.  Tastes just like an oreo shake... what could be better than that?

Special Event Series-- Keepsake Cakes

Special Events other than weddings are also a great time to have cake. When was the last time you went to a birthday party where they didn't serve cake?   (uhhhhh????  probably never)
For the next few days, I'm going to spotlight cakes that are not geared for the bride to be... but for us regular ol folk who need a fabulous cake for a special event.

Cake #1 in our series is an adorable puppy cake for a little girl who is obsessed with dalmations.  Her whole birthday was a dog theme.  12 little 5 year olds acting like puppies for an hour an half! I bet mom was ready for that party to get over :)  The puppies are made out of gumpaste... a sugar dough that dries hard so it becomes a great keepsake for the birthday girl.

Linzi and Jared.... The Luckiest Engaged Couple in Utah

Linzi was the winner of the $100,000 wedding giveaway from the Bridal Extravaganza at LaCaille this past August.  Linzi and Jared.  They were able to have their whole wedding paid for... as well as use some of the best of the best here in Utah to be apart of their wedding.  It was a fairy tale wedding (as you can see from the fabulous photo from the one and only Swensen Photography)and I was so lucky to be apart of it.  Linzi and Jared were so fun to work with.  I really enjoyed the few times I got to meet with them and share in their excitement.  I wish them the best of luck with their marriage.

Must apologize for the bad photos.  I'll get some edited ones soon!  Linzi wanted butterflies cascading down her cake.  We finished the cake off with words that they picked out together for the fondant ribbon on the bottom of each tier.  And of course.... Jared got his trout!

Gerbs with a Modern Design

I got the privilege to do Jenny's cake.  She was such a sweet bride and drop dead gorgeous! We played around with a few designs and finally came up with this one.  I loved the straight, modern lines on this cake, the colors were fabulous together, and the gerb daisies added a lot of texture and color to the design.

Couture Cakes

Bethanie was such a doll! I was so lucky to be able to do her cake this summer. She loved the look of fabric on her cake, so this is what we came up with!
Dress inspired cakes are always fun to make. They bring such a creative touch to your reception.. especially if you design your cake after your own wedding dress. It brings out a very feminine and "fairy tale" type of style. Any time you get to mix fashion with cake... it's always a real treat.

"Fall"ing Leaves

I love the changing of the seasons... especially fall! There is something amazing about crisp air, the smell of rain and vibrant colors on the trees. It makes me smile.
I made this cake for the Bridal Show last July at LaCaille. White Chocolate autumn leaves airbrushed and hand painted are a great addition to any fall wedding cake. Not only do they look realistic, they taste incredible too! Who can say no to any type of chocolate?

Friday, September 18, 2009

Fall or Summer, Orange is a fabulous color to use in your wedding. Fruit has been a popular trend this year and I love the how Alesha wanted oranges displayed in her cake stand. For those of you who may be "anti-fondant".. here's a buttercream cake for you to take a look at. Buttercream has a softer texture than fondant, and you can still make it nice and smooth. Some people think it tastes better than fondant.. but it's all personal opinion.
I don't do a lot of buttercream cakes these days.. it's fun to get back to them every once in a while.

The "IT" Color!

Candy Apple Green is THE Color! It's been a popular one this year. I was lucky enough to do Bethanie's cake for her. She is the cutest girl! They wanted something fun and simple. They were using green apples (from their own apple trees.... cool!) as part of their decor, so wanted to implement the color into the cake. I think the green and purple were a great color combination. As for the flowers... they were done by the best RETIRED florist around... my own mom! It was fun to work on a wedding with her again.

A Black Wedding Cake???

So if you are brave enough to want a black wedding cake... you just might see that you can pull off an elegant, amazingly different cake that will be a show stopper. I was impressed with Heidi and Tobin when they came to our consultation saying they wanted and all black wedding cake (and even more impressed that mom was on page with their idea's!) Not too many people are brave enough to go with such a bold color. This cake turned out awesome! The black looked beautiful and then we put the bright pink flowers on it and the cake came alive. It's always a HUGE compliment to me when guests start snapping pictures of my cakes. This was one of those cakes. As soon as I moved out of the way, there were about 5 people snapping pictures at the finished product. I don't know if they'd ever seen a black wedding cake before.
Thanks Heidi and Tobin for stepping out of the box and going bold! I LOVED working on your cake and I hope you loved it to!

Pop Art

This cake reminded me of something I would see in an art gallery. With the bright white canvas (fondant in my case) and the bright red flower covering all three tiers, this cake "popped" in artistic design. This reception was at the totally cool Scholorship Room at the University of Utah. I love this venue because the whole room is full of windows so you've got an amazing view of good ol SLC and our beautiful mountains as it's back drop.

Wedding Cakes on a Budget

I love this color combination! Yellow and brown look amazing together.. especially when you add huge sunflowers! This wedding cake was for an awesome couple who wanted a small wedding for mostly family. The only request......CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE!!!! I was honored to find out that they sampled about 4 different companies chocolate cakes, and chose me and my popular Chocolate Truffle Cake. For those who haven't tried the Chocolate Truffle, it's 6 layers of rich chocolate cake filled with a whipped ganache filling and then frosted with more whipped ganache. It is heaven on earth for chocolate lovers.. but make sure you have a tall glass of milk close by!
If you are doing a small wedding and are budget conscious, two or three small layered cakes sitting next to each other are a great option for you. With a few fresh flowers a cute patterned ribbon around the bottom, you have a great looking cake display that could be under $200! This is also a fun idea for bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelor parties, etc. etc. Anytime you have a special event.. you can always make a simple cake look fabulous while having it fit your budget.

Traditional with a Twist!

If you are ever lucky enough to chill out at LaCaille for even 10 seconds... you will understand why this is the COOLEST venue for a wedding. It is beautiful, romantic, and the closest thing to a castle you'll get without heading to europe! Alli's wedding was absolutely gorgeous with cream and brown as the main colors with reds, yellows and oranges as accent colors. This cake was unique in that it wasn't stacked in the center as a traditional wedding cake, but it was stacked so all the back corners matched up. It was a great, elegant look with a twist. I think it turned out great.

Art turns to Cake

Rob and Sara were the coolest couple to work with. I had so much fun designing and creating this Salvador Dali inspired cake for them. I have to admit, this is one of my favorite cakes I've ever made.
When I met them several months ago and The Bridal Extravaganza they showed me a picture on their phone of Salvador Dali's painting of "The Persistance of Memory". I love modern art, and I was immediatly, drawn to this couples creativity and imagination for not only the idea's for their wedding cake, but for their whole wedding. We got together and sketched out several different designs.. and this is what we came up with. The groom made the copper trees for the gumpaste clocks to hang on which I think were fabulous. Once again.. Rob and Sara.. you guys are amazing. Thank you for being so fun to work with. I wish you the best of luck in your marriage!

Amber & Justin

Amber and Justin were such a pleasure to work with. They were not only an adorable couple, but so nice and appreciative. Amber was very organized and ontop of everything with her wedding. I really enjoyed getting to know them a little bit and hope their wedding was just how they imagined it being.
Amber's cake was a blast to make. It was elegant and modern with a lot of detail.
My favorite part of this cake was working on the sugar orchids. Sugar flowers are a lot of work, but are so worth the effort. It was fun to hear one of the guest say, "they are putting fresh flowers on the cake right now". It's always a plus when you can't tell they are made out of sugar!

Amber and Justin, thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding planning. I loved doing both of your cakes. Your wedding looked beautiful and I hope you both had a wonderful day!

Justin's Grooms Cake

Justin got his own special cake for the wedding day. Grooms cakes Rock! It's so great when the grooms get something special that is just for them.
As you can probably guess, Justin loves fishing! So a rainbow trout in a tackle box was the perfect cake for him. It was great to watch the guests come up and ask if it was a cake. That's when you know you did it right. Justin, I hope you loved your grooms cake. I had so much fun making it for you!
Happy Fishing! :)

Nicole was such a cute girl. I enjoyed meeting and working with her. She had a classic wedding with red, black and white. You never can go wrong with that color scheme. She wanted her square cake off centered.. a popular trend this year. The quilting is a great design that adds a nice touch to any cake. I liked how she wanted to put the ribbon in the middle of the cake instead of the bottom to change the look up a bit.
Sorry the lighting is a little funky in this picture, but you get the idea.

I hope you guys had a wonderful wedding day!

Chocolate Lovers Dream

Andrea LOVES Chocolate. Can you tell??
She came to me with this idea and we went with it. Chocolate fondant, chocolate roses, chocolate cake.... how could it get any better?

Lucky Grooms Cake Winner

Whitney was the lucky winner of the bridal show's grooms cake this past January. Her new hubby LOVES transformers, so she thought it would be fitting to do a transformer cake. This silver food paint is such a fun color to use. I love when I get a chance to use it. As you know, I get so excited to do grooms cakes. This was one was no different. I thought it was quite the coincidence that Whitney's wedding happened to be the same week Transformers II came out in theatre's.

Saturday, June 20, 2009


Amber is such a doll. I was so happy I got to work with her on her wedding cake. She and her mom were amazing clients. Amber wanted a simple, yet elegant cake. We pulled that off by doing a ivory colored fondant cake with stenciling work on the sides that were painted with pearl dust to add a little shimmer to the cake.

Saturday, June 13, 2009

Sisters, Sisters

The cake was made especially for two brides in mind. Two sisters... married just days apart came together for a double wedding reception. I think it was fabulous that they could share this special time in their lives together. I hope they were able to pull it off without any drama! I'm sure they did. The reception was beautiful and I loved how they thought out every detail even matching the fabrics with the design chosen for the cake. As you can see on the cake, there was a lot of roses. The florist said they had ordered 400 red roses for the reception! The cake alone took 5 dozen. The venue was perfectly put together. I hope it was a wonderful night for our two sister brides!

Fit for a Princess

This wedding cake as you can see had quite a lot of detail. The couple gave me their wedding announcement and wanted it recreated onto their cake. Besides the sheer size of this cake, the hot salmon pink under the white piping with the crystal beads gave this cake a bold statement.
Each tier had a different flavor that was as bold as the cake itself. With Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese with a truffle frosting, Chocolate Orange with Whipped Fudge, Citrus Coconut with a Lime Mousse, and Raspberry Lemonade with a raspberry buttercream.

May, May, May--- Welcome Wedding Season!!!

Hello All. I have not forgotten you! I have been swamped with weddings in May and haven't had a second to post about all the great weddings I got to do. It was a great month for Sugar Kisses. I have the coolest clients in the world all with wonderful imaginations and idea's for their special day.
Here's a look at all the fun cakes I was able to do the last few weeks.

Friday, May 22, 2009


Danielle was one of the first consultations I had at the beginning of the year and it was exciting to have her wedding finally get here. She was so darling and full of energy. I loved getting to know her. She also wanted a grooms cake for her future hubby that represented all the things he liked to do. I had so much fun working on her two cakes. She sent me the sweetest email about how much she loved her cake. That is always such a fun treat when you get to hear how much the bride and groom appreciated their cake. As a cake designer, those are the greatest compliments when people take the time to let you know how happy they were with their cake. It makes my job the best job in the world.

Danielle's Grooms Cake

As I said earlier, Danielle wanted her grooms cake to reflect all the things her hubby to be enjoyed doing. He is a EMT and is also training to be a fire fighter. He LOVES the show Ace of Cakes (as do I) so this cake had to be "Duff worthy" (for those of you who don't know... Duff.... you gotta watch Ace of Cakes on the Food Network). Even though this ambulance didnt have the real lights and smoke coming out of it as Duff would do... I think it turned out pretty fun. We had the bride looking beautiful in her gown and the groom (goatee and all) with his fireman hat, his EMT bag and his ambulance in the back.
I was thrilled to hear that he LOVED his cake and was so excited when Danielle brought it out to him as his own special gift at the reception.
Thank you both for letting me be apart of your special day. I was so happy to be able to make a couple cakes for you that fit your personalities. Enjoy married life!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Stelios was the lucky winner of a Free Grooms Cake from The Bridal Extravaganza Show I did a few months ago. He's greek so he thought it would be fun to do the Parthenon. This cake was so much fun to make and it was all worth it when I got to see the bride and grooms faces when they saw it. It's always such a treat when you can see the excitement in their eyes.
I thought they had a great idea that I thought I would share with you all. Since they were having a rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, they decided to use the grooms cake at the dinner as their dessert. With rehearsal dinners usually a little more casual, the grooms cake is a great cake to use for that event. I hope they had a wonderful wedding and rehearsal dinner.

Friday, May 15, 2009


I had so much fun with Lindsay's cake. She wanted fun and funky and that's what she got! I love it when brides are bold with their color choices. Brown, Orange and Hot Pink were her colors. We incorporated all the colors into her cake with Chocolate lillies as a cake topper. The wedding was held at Noah's in Sandy. It is a beautiful venue with a lot of different options for any type of party.

Lindsay's Groom Cake

Lindsay also wanted a grooms cake for her husband to be. I can honestly say that making these cowboy boots have been one of the coolest cakes I've ever gotten to make. Grooms cakes are a blast to make and can be such a special surprise for your fiance. The wedding can easily become just for the bride.. but grooms cakes can be a way for you to show your groom just how special he is as well.
These cowboy boots are replica's of their own boots which made them even more customized for their event.

Saturday, May 9, 2009


Here's another cupcake wedding. This is for a bigger party. Jamie wanted to serve cupcakes to all her guests as party favors as well as the dessert for the sit down reception. Each favor was boxed and labeled with the cupcake flavor and displayed on the buffet table. The cupcake tower held nearly 200 cupcakes so guests could just come and take what they pleased.
Jamie had a crazy week with graduating from college, getting married and moving across the country all within days of eachother. I hope all went well and good luck with all your new adventures.

Friday, May 8, 2009


I had such a great time meeting with Clarissa and her mom at our first consultation. They were fun to talk with and I enjoyed getting to know them a little bit. With her colors being black, white and yellow, we sketched out a fun cake that would incorporate all her colors but still have a real springy feel to it. She loved gerb daisies and wanted them incorporated into her cake. I think it turned out great. Clarissa presented her cake in the middle of the room under a gazebo so it was a focal point of the reception. It was a fun way to display the cake so all your guests could enjoy it wherever they were in the room.

Thursday, May 7, 2009


Cupcakes are a fun, trendy and a great alternative to the traditional wedding cake. Alisha was having just a small wedding, so a three tier cupcake tower worked perfect for her reception. The green and black were a great color combination.
Alisha, you looked beautiful and you are so darling. I was excited to be apart of your wedding day.

Ogden Wedding..... Finally

Maren has been one of my most organized bride's I've ever had the pleasure of working with. She had her wedding thought out to the very last detail and then some. Maren did my job for me by sketching out her final design of her cake. After many idea's and styles, she finally went with a design that only a fashionista would come up with...... her whole cake was designed around the pleats on her shoes!!!
This wedding turned out fabulous. The whole venue was in perfect sinc. The sit down reception at Thanksgiving Point overlooking the gardens had style and class with a bright sunny feel with her colors being white, yellow and green. It was a perfect way to start off spring.
As you can see in the picture, the cake stood 3 feet high and above it was a floral chandelier created by Studio Stems. Maren looked beautiful and after a few unexpected delays and date changes, I'm so happy she was able to have the wedding of her dreams. Congratulations Maren and Nate.

Good Things Utah Update

Good Things Utah was a blast to do! I thought I'd share the link if anyone wanted to check it out.


Hello Utah! I'm a Grooms Cake!

As I've said before.. Grooms cakes are starting to become more and more popular here in Utah. (YEAH!!) As a cake artist, I LOVE to make grooms cakes. This is where a lot of sculpting and creativity really gets to come out in cake.
Here's a picture fit for a baseball lover! Eric is a HUGE Arizona Diamondbacks fan, so a baseball hat was the perfect choice for him! I enjoyed this cake since I have a little soft spot in my heart for the Diamondbacks myself. I happened to live in Phoenix when they won the World Series a few years back... the whole city turned into baseball watching zombies to watch the world series... It was a blast.
Eric.. I hope you enjoyed your baseball hat cake!

Anne H Wedding

I was lucky enough to do Anne's wedding cake. Anne, you were so much fun to work with! The wedding was at Red Butte Gardens. This is a great venue for a wedding. The orangerie is a beautiful room full of light where citrus trees grow right here in Utah:) All the live plants, trees and flowers inside and out in the garden itself creates a beautiful setting for a wedding party.
Anne took the organic nature of her location into her cake with ordering sugar paste peonies as the main focal point of her cake. Adding flowers.. whether fresh or sugar to cakes add so much elegance and style. She went a step further and had chose peonies because she had the same flower in random places on her dress. She looked so beautiful.. and it was great to see how the venue, the cake, her dress, etc. etc all came together perfectly.
Congratulations Anne on your wedding.

Good Things Utah

Thanks to my dear friends at The Bridal Extravaganza, I will be appearing on Good Things Utah on Tuesday March 24th. I'm so excited for this opportunity to show off my cakes and am blown away that I was asked. It's going to be a little nerve racking to watch all the girls from the show eat my cake on live television (ahhhh). I hope they like it! Wouldn't that be awful if you were on a food segment and the hosts actually spit your food out? Man.. worst nightmare right there.
Anyway... tune in to Good Things Utah on Channel 4 at 10:00-11:00am next Tuesday morning. Thank you Bridal Extravaganza!
Welcome to Sugar Kisses Cakes Blog! Where you can see everything I'm working on and doing on a daily basis! Hope you enjoy the site.. and remember....
