I give you permission to take a moment of silence before reading on. ;)

My life is a crazy, busy, insane, overbooked, overflowing, exciting, joyful, and overwhelming mess.  And I love it that way.  I love […]

Weddings and Smash Cakes and Komae, Oh My!

By |September 21st, 2015|

Where has Amy been?  Is she still baking?  Is La Hoot still a thing?

Absolutely, it is, my friends!  I have been a little quiet on the social media front, but I assure you, it’s for two good reasons.  Let me tell you!

First off… La Hoot is busy!  We’ve had 1 or 2 weddings booked […]

Finding Nemo – Finding Talent

By |September 3rd, 2015|

Starting a new hobby can be daunting.  Especially if you’re not a natural from the get-go.  Now, I know a lot of my La Hoot fans think I’m this artsy-fartsy talent explosion. ;)  And when it comes to some of my cupcake-cake designs, I might begin to agree with you a tad bit.  But […]

Through All of It

By |May 27th, 2015|

This is La Hoot’s busiest week perhaps to date.  Between graduation parties and a wedding, I’m slammed and working nearly a traditional 40 hour work week.  Blessed?  Yes!  Overwhelmed?  Sometimes!  But right now, I’m slowing down to focus on something of even greater importance than cake pops.  Hard to believe, right?

A Smashing Volcano!

By |April 27th, 2015|

Did you see our dinosaur cupcake cake we created!?  Well, now it’s time to check out the making (and destruction) of the volcano smash cake that went along with it!

I started with two little cakes to make this beauty.  One was a traditional 4″ round.  The other was a mini-doll cake.

I then stacked these on […]
