I remember when this kid was born. This is my second oldest sister's oldest, Brock, and he is freaking awesome. He came home from the MTC to speak at his father's funeral, then went right back out & killed it on his mission, just like everything else he does. I cannot think of a time when he wasn't (almost) annoyingly positive & happy. It is a gift to spend time with him. And Stephanie just makes him that much better. She is pretty amazing herself. Anyway, I love them, and had a blast doing these cakes for them, just knowing that they would react like I had just painted the Sistine Chapel. I say cake(s) because they had two receptions, one Thursday in Idaho Falls, and another on Saturday in Springville. So we decided that since they wanted to serve the cake at both of them, and due to the fact that I was doing it for free & didn't think that doing two whole cakes in 48 hours sounded very fun... I did the top three tiers with foam cake dummies & the bottom tier was real cake- chocolate with cookies & cream filling, which I made another of before the Saturday reception. It worked out pretty smoothly, and I love how it turned out.
