Elisabeth's Extreme CakeOver

The CAKE SQUAD has been busy helping people find their SWEET SPOTS! Check out the special birthday surprise Elisabeth received from Extreme CakeOver:

(If you don't know about Extreme CakeOver, each Cake Squad member prays for the person getting "Caked Over" and hears what God has to say about that individual. Cara Linn then takes all of those prophetic words and designs a cake. The result? That person finds the Sweet Spot only their Creator can fill.)

"Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you may prophesy...he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men." 1 Corinthians 14:1, 3

What God said about Elisabeth through each Cake Squad member:

Faith Fairy
“My sweet, smelling flower, My Elisabeth. Oh how I have such a vast variety, all different colors, growing everywhere. You’re my flower, my child and year after year, I will be providing you with food, which is My Word; wisdom and revelation. As your bulb grows larger, you will send up larger stacks with more buds. You will also have new stems emerging as your bulb produces larger roots under the ground.
And the buds, which are young women, that you will mentor will be the buds that are growing off of the years of wisdom you have.
And then I hear peace lily. “Everywhere you go Elisabeth; you are my flower, my child that will bring peace to every situation you encounter.”

I see a ballerina in a pink tutu with silver lining; Pink because of your childlike heart before the Father, silver because you have a heart of wisdom before others. You're not afraid in His Presence! You know that you can come to Him with an open heart to whatever He has to say. You are in love with Him. Your openness in His Presence has created an environment around your heart of compassion. Because you trust Him, your heart can remain soft.

Momma D:
Bona Fide! And the Lord says; Elisabeth, I have created you, made you and now presented you as one having GOOD Faith. You are one who, through the testing, has come out of the fire, smelling like a beautiful rose. And like a rose, you are the authentic one. There are many roses, but no two are alike. There is none like you, Elisabeth. You are the truthful one; the honest one. When I look at you I see your sincere heart; your genuine heart. When others see you, they too see that your character is one of Good Strong Faith!
Your flavor:
Chocolate Pecan Caramel – Because who doesn’t LOVE that!

Dal-Rod: You have a sweet spirit, child like faith, and a joyful heart

Cara Linn: the Cake Design

Notice the cake included all of the details of each prophecy. Her heart and each adjective used to describe it, the flowers, the pink tutu with silver lining, etc...

Elisabeth LOVES this brand of cookies called "Nana's". They are sweetened with fruit juice and are delicious!
She also LOVES fondant and snacks on it every time she comes to SweetLand!

"THANK YOU CAKE SQUAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This cake absolutely rocked my world!!! It was right on! I was so blown away last night that I was speechless.

I heard the Lord say to me, 'Just as this cake was fashioned for you with so much love and time, it is a glimpse into what thought and love went into creating you!!!!'"

It honestly was truly a reflection of God creating and fashioning me. Psalm 139 has come more alive.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!

This Cake Squad thing has now taken on a personal meaning for me!

God's richest blessings to the Cake Squad and Cara Linn, Inc.!"

Cakes of the Week...and their inspiration

Tonya ordered her birthday cake from us last week. She didn't have a particular design in mind, only a few pictures that inspired her. She left the rest up to us (I love when clients do this!).

Here are the pics she sent...

And here is what we came up with...

I think she was happy :-)

This was a cake for a little boy named Kadeem who was turning one!

Cakes for the SALVATION ARMY
Our friend Shawn works for the Salvation Army and ordered these cakes for a big celebration last weekend for kids and parents. He gave us a few designs he came up with and we added our own touch to each ;-)

He was very happy too :-)
Aaaahhh...another week of satisfied customers and happy workers at Cara Linn.

Sweet Elisabeth

This week we are featuring our friend Elisabeth who comes to help us once a week. We're featuring her one, because her birthday is next week, two, she's leaving NYC this week for 3 months and we're gonna miss her like crazy, and three because she wrote this great journal entry you're about to read.
We love her, she is just amazing. Enjoy the blog and be sure and check back next week to see her birthday cake!!!

A Day at Sweet Land
by Elisabeth

Spending time at Sweet Land is always a treat for me. It is full of inspiration, joy, and sweetness to my spirit and taste buds!

Each time is an adventure when I show up and take part in helping Cara achieve her dreams and goals of running such an exciting and fun business.

Today I started out by reading over her study guide for her book, Faith, Cake, & Jesus. Her book and study guide have inspired me to start finding my own destiny and taking action of those dreams.

Cara then welcomed any of my own creative decorating ideas for the cake she was currently making. I helped her make coffee beans out of fondant, which was one of me and Dallas’ suggestions for decorating the cake. I enjoyed watching Cara through her cake decorating process. SOOOO much love and attention went into it. She spent half the day loving on this ONE cake. No wonder they are so anointed!

Cara Linn, Inc. is great at finding creative ways to be resourceful. For example, I cut holes in egg crate cartons for special ice cream cone desserts to protect them while being transported. Who came up with that creative idea?!

Next, Cara and Faith taught me how to dye fondant different colors. We used the fondant for making cake decorations. I rolled some into little balls and cut others into squares. I LOVE fondant! It makes cakes look so beautiful and I love the way it tastes.

Then, “Ready, Camera, Action!” as we all became a production team for Cara’s cake decorating DVD that she will be mailing around the country as part of her cake making tool kit. Cara is a natural on camera. God knew what He was doing when He created her to fulfill His Kingdom purposes. Look out world!

My nearly eight hours at Sweet Land today flew by so quickly and it never felt like work! Every moment was fun and inspirational with the company of incredible individuals who are also great friends of mine.

There is plenty to do at Sweet Land to fulfill Cara’s amazing vision that will one day capture the hearts of people around the world. It is a privilege to lend a hand and see it at its beginnings. I look forward to the day I will be reminiscing about the early days.

Handbag Cakes with Cara Linn

This week we had a small class, but we like small classes because it means we get to hold them in our studio! The atmosphere here is so bright, creative, and inspiring; the perfect setting for cake decorating.
Our studio is also known to many as "SweetLand". We constantly have people, friends, clients, kids, and neighbors coming here. Sometimes they come for a purpose, sometimes for no reason at all. They just like being here and because they leave with a "Sweet" taste in their mouth.
Is it the cake? The pink walls? The rainbows, tutus, or happy music playing?
Well that's all part of it...
but the true sweetness comes from the Presence of God that dwells here.
Our constant prayer here at Cara Linn, Inc. is that people would taste and see that HE IS GOOD!!! And that He would use this place, our product, and US to change people and cause them never to be the same. He's changed US through His sweetness, now we just want to turn around and share it with everybody else.
If this is something you want to experience, stop by SweetLand, you may never be the same!
(Or apply for our Extreme CakeOver...deadline is June 1st!!!)
I had fun getting to know our 3 students, Tonya, Nathalie, and Anjone and was excited about the way their cakes turned out! They have all done their share of cake decorating, but I think each of them left here learning a few new tricks and knowing that, makes it all worthwhile ;)
