Here's Mary Lou's cake, which was a carrot spice cake with raisins and pineapple, and cream cheese frosting:

The second cake I made was for my friend Anne's granddaughter, Breanna. She's celebrating her 13th birthday with a slumber party and six of her close friends. Anne sent me a photo of an "inspiration" cake that Breanna liked, and I used it as just that, inspiration. I always try to make someone else's design unique by incorporating my own touches, and I think it was successful. This was a white/vanilla cake with butter cream frosting and cut-out fondant decorations.

And, since I rarely give my oven a rest, right now I'm baking crumb cake muffins. They've just come out of the oven, and they are pretty.
