New Sponsor and a Giveaway!

Now if you're from northern Utah, please continue reading as this sponsor is Utah based and is just awesome!
Last week was my birthday and my son's birthday too. I hate  making cakes, I'm the mom who makes a 9x13 pan, pulls out the store bought frosting and slathers it on, top it with candles and I'm done. But I wanted something more for this year. I'm in a mom group for Weber and Davis counties and I asked who made birthday cakes, Robyn said that she did, I popped onto her blog and perused her blog and cakes. So I ran across this one. And was blown away by her talent and hired her.

She made Hayden a tiger cake (isn't it darling!) and I took advantage of her special at the time and got a "smash cake" for me. 


Okay so enough from me!
Here's from Robyn mingled with her cakes! You can visit her blog to see more work HERE!

SWEET ELISE CAKES
"Making your special day sweeter"
For her daughter Elise's 3rd birthday, Robyn was in search of someone who could make a Rapunzel-themed cake. Unable to find a cute one within her budget, she decided she would make it herself. It was a huge success! Word of mouth spread like wildfire and she started getting requests for numerous cakes and other sweet treats. Combining her love for baking along with the art of creating three dimensional confections hit the sweet spot. Mixing business with pleasure was a no-brainer from that point on.  "Sweet Elise Cakes" was born. It seemed fitting to name the business after her daughter since she was the reason behind her mother's determination to make her special day sweeter!

INFO
Robyn specializes in fondant work & buttercream cakes/cupcakes for any type of special event, but also can do specialty items such as cookies or cake pops. She also is skilled in sculpting 3D objects out of cake, and for more intricate details; homemade rice crispy treats.

Knowing how it feels to want a custom cake and not be able to pay top dollar for one, she's willing to work with any budget.
