Bridal Shower Grand Slam!!!

This pair of soon-to-be bride and groom love their sports, so we came up with these "cake balls" for a playful bridal shower.  Footballs, basketballs, and baseballs surround a blushing bride and groom sporting baseball wedding attire (all hand-tailored). The groom and footballs have chocolate cake inside, and the bride, basketballs, and baseballs contain "deWishes" butter cake!

Side view of bride & groom: note the stitching on the groom's baseball cap and the couple's adorable profiles.  The thread on the baseballs were hand-stitched and all the balls were handmade without the use of molds.

Aerial view: shows sample monogram on groom's baseball cap.  The bows on the bride's pigtails are pearlized and set with a pearl.

Back View: shows the pearlized gleam of the bride's veil and the sheen of the groom's cap.   From any angle, this union is a Grand Slam, a Touchdown, and a Slam Dunk all in one!  CONGRATULATIONS to the happy couple!!!

Independence Day

July 4th, 1776 marks the signing of our Declaration of Independence.  As with all holidays, we must remember to celebrate and spend time with those we love and to be eternally grateful that we live in a country that believes in protecting the simplest form of all human freedoms: LIFE.
