An Amazing Friend and Yummy Contest!!

This is my good friend Tatum! You have seen her before on my blog. Well she is at it again. Being her super creative self and wanting to share some yumminess (is that even a word) with you!!

Tatum is one of the most amazing women you will ever meet! Besides being  very beautiful on the inside she is equally as beautiful on the inside with a heart as big as Texas. She is a hard working single mom with a never ending supply of energy, love and talent. I swear there is nothing she can't do Besides being one the best moms in the world to her two sweet boys, her talents include running her own business called Bumble Cakes, Cutting hair, sewing the most fabulous tote bags and custom bedding for baby nurseries, has a successful Etsy Shop...oh and still has time to train for triathlons...where does she get her energy!!

Like the rest of us Tatum has been through some really rough times but chose to dig deep and pull out all the talent she has been given and make a really wonderful life for herself and her boys. When life threw her lemons she made cake with them!!

I am a faithful customer of her Bake shop "Bumble Cakes" and will probably never eat a cupcake, sugar cookie or cake from anywhere else EVER AGAIN!! They are sooo moist and the flavor combinations are to die for. My family has been lucky enough to be her taste testers for many of her different flavors and we have never been disappointed

Here are just a few pictures of some of the yummy treats she bakes up at Bumble Cakes.

This lady bug cakes was for my granddaughters first birthday, along with matching ladybug cupcakes

This school bus cake was for my grandson's first birthday.

Don't you just love the Bumble Bee Sugar cookies for a baby shower I hosted

And my husband was so thrilled with his karate cake. His is a black belt and she really made his birthday with this cake.
