Eli's Treats

I just wanted to share my son's graduation cake with all of you. It came out very cool and masculine just as I had hoped. Go to Facebook and like Eli's Treats. He has so many incredible works of art/cakes on his page under photos. You would not believe that he is a young college student who has been blessed with an incredible gift!

The top layer of the cake was a white cake, filled with cream filling and the bottom layer was chocolate, with chocolate cream filling and the whole cake was covered in fondant. The black fondant was chocolate and decorated with Tyler's favorite colors and represented his love for four wheeler racing! Delicious! 

Thanks again Eli!

The Last of the Sedums

Okay, I probably went a little crazy with the sedums. However, in saying that I feel that I spread them out far enough that nobody would really notice. I have a few indoors, some on the porch and these by the pool. Hope you enjoy these plants as much as I do! I will be doing some more planting of different plants and flowers in the next couple of weeks and will defintely be sharing. Thanks for stopping by!
