Bulldog Pride...

I don't think I've shared the fact that my hubby is a teacher at Braddock High School (The Bulldogs).  [Side note: our very own Guelcys and my hubby, are both alumni]  Since his co-workers and students all know that 'Server's wife makes cakes', CWA has had the privilege of being part of some of their events.  Here are a few of the cakes we've done that have a Braddock connection.

This cake was for the 2011 National Honor Society end-of-year banquet.  The theme of the event was Dr. Seuss and we were asked to incorporate the theme into the cake and this is what we came up with to highlight three famous Seuss stories: 'One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish', 'The Cat in the Hat', and 'Horton Hears a Who'.

Did I mention that the hubby is also the Braddock Girls' Soccer Coach?  Just this summer, the team participated in a tournament and when it wrapped up, all the teams had a celebratory BBQ.  We were asked to provide dessert :)  The ball is made of cake and the cleat is 100% sugar.  The sides had representations of the teams that participated in the tournament: Braddock High School Bulldogs, Southwest High School Eagles, St. Brendan High School, South Kendall Soccer, and South Miami High School Cobras.  The players and coaches loved it and I think we definitely scored with this one! :p

This next cake was for a baby shower thrown at school for a teacher who was expecting.  It was a surprise, so the teachers organizing the shower just asked us to be creative.  It was difficult, not knowing the mommy-to-be, to design something that we'd know she'd like.  So we looked up her baby registry and designed something around her Winnie the Pooh nursery bedding.  She picked it so we knew she liked it - we just translated it into cake!  And topped it off with a pair of matching sugar baby Converse.  Congratulations, Ms. D!

Finally, one of my husband's former students wanted to order a cake for her boyfriend's 18th birthday.  He's a huge Hurricanes fan, so she wanted a University of Miami themed cake.  She came to the right place!!! (C-A-N-E-S, CANES!!!!)  The cake featured a football field complete with a goal post and a sugar replica of Sebastian the Ibis. 

Thank you J for giving me the chance to show my Hurricane Pride!

We hope to be able to continue to provide the Braddock Family with many more fun cakes :) 
Go Bulldogs!
