Winter Woodland Cake Topper : Holiday 2014

Hello, friends! While you all venture to a swimming hole and sip on lemonade, I am listening to Christmas music to inspire Potter+Butler’s winter 2014 handmade celebration goods offerings. Leading the pack of seasonal celebration decor that we will offer: our FRESH EVERGREEN WOODLAND MONOGRAM CAKE TOPPER.

If you recall, I crafted the original version of this topper for my son’s first birthday cakes last December. The response from Potter+Butler friends was so very kind and enthusiastic, I am so excited to now make it available to you all this winter.

Because I will be crafting with fresh Noble Fir branches that I will gather from my favorite tree farm just outside of Portland, Oregon, I am only accepting a limited number of orders. We will be accepting pre-orders between now and November (or until I reach production capacity, whichever comes first).

I am so thrilled to offer these natural beauties. Nature + Cake. Honestly. How does it get any better?

Welcome, Summer

Hello, all!

Milo rushed out to say hello to the ocean today. As the cold ocean water rushed over his tiny feet, you could say we officially kicked off our summer. We did some digging in the sand, watched  kites take flight, and flirted with the water as it rushed in and out.

As we usher in summer this Memorial Day weekend, may you belly laugh with loved ones, relish in the warmth of the season, and fall into a relaxed groove.

Little Walker

Hello, all! I hope this day finds you well, happy, and in the midst of planning some sort of fun celebration.

This day  has me running around with my little guy. He’s walking (and running) now, and every part of his being at every moment wants nothing more than to practice his new skill. It’s a beautiful blossoming to be a part of / witness.

I continue to open the shop for custom order requests, as my production schedule allows. Please be sure to contact me if you have some creative party plans, and we can work together to make them come to life.

Enjoy the beauty of this day!

Pancake Cake with Maple Cream Frosting

I love the story of how this recipe for Pancake Cake by the recipe was in the books.

This Christmas we, too, had a house full of loved ones. We, too, had a bunch of pancakes. And with syrup already in the fridge, and unused cream cheese blocks for days, this recipe fit right in this holiday.

You can find the recipe here. Or, if you’re more of the semi-homemade kind, it’s as easy as cooking up pancakes using a pancake mix and then spreading maple-enhanced cream cheese frosting between the hot cakes and on top. It’s the ultimate leftover upgrade.

Winter Woodland First Birthday Smash Cake

Hello, friends! My little Milo turned one! As any new parent knows, this is quite a cause for celebration. Not only are we celebrating little man’s first wonderful, incredible, miraculous, adorable year of life, but Adam and I are also smiling with a sense of accomplishment as his parents.

To celebrate his first year of life, there was cake. Lots of cake. Milo absolutely loves trees and being outside. Having a winter birthday in the NW for a mini tree lover, the pine branch topper I crafted seemed like a perfect adornment for both his smash cake and the cake the gathering of adults would enjoy.

Using clippings from our freshly cut Christmas tree, I used green floral wire to connect small sections of pine branches so that they formed a number one for the smash cake and the letter M for the adult cake. I then gave the needles a trim with scissors to help fine tune the sculpted pine topper. I secured natural bamboo skewers, cut to size, to the back of the topper using floral wire.  The bamboo skewers provide both a strong framework for the topper, as well as a way to anchor the topper into the cake (without the pine branches making much contact with the cake).

Happy Halloween!

Milo is a teddy bear for his very first Halloween. Because if not now, when? You know? All other Halloweens will be what HE wants, but this one, his first one when he is too young to realize how amazingly adorable and ridiculously hilarious he looks, was up to me. He’s really comfortable in it. I laughed so hard I cried when we got the entire outfit on and he crawled around like it was no big deal – as if he had on a plain old shirt and pants. I love this cuddly teddy bear of mine. Happy Halloween, all! May it be full of sweets and laughter.

Hi, all! Long time, no talk, right? I’ve been busy being mom to my sweet baby, Milo. He’s nine months old now. Here he is all cozy and excited for fall, our most favorite time of year.

I’m accepting orders as I can. And by can, I more accurately mean as I feel I can take on the work and maintain a harmonious balance in life.

I’ll be back to blogging and creating full steam ahead again soon – when Milo and I agree the time is right. For now, please know I am sending you all lots of love and wishes for incredible celebrations!
