Polka dots!

Posted by Steph on Jan 18, 2014 in Birthday, My Cakes

While polka dots don’t make it into the clothes I wear, I just love them for cakes!  They are so festive and fun!  This time I decided to do an ombre gradient of color using 3 different shades of each color.  The star on top is also a gradient (which you can see in the 2nd picture below).  This cake is an 8″ & 10″.

Pine Forest

Posted by Steph on Dec 5, 2013 in Holiday, My Cakes

This cake is headed to my husband’s work for the December birthdays.  I wanted something quick to throw together as my weeks lately have been a little crazy!  I cut out the fondant/gumpaste blend pine trees the day before and then I was able to assemble this cake (with  making icing) in just over an hour.  The rest of the icing is buttercream, and I used some white cake sparkles to make the tops “snow like”.

Tinkerbell

Posted by Steph on Nov 30, 2013 in Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

Last month my niece turned 4!  She loves Tinkerbell, so I got to make her a fairy-perfect cake.  This cake is an 8″ & 10″.  The Tinkerbell on top is a toy.

Softball!

Posted by Steph on Nov 30, 2013 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, My Cakes

A friend asked if I could make a cake with a big softball for her daughter’s birthday – of course!  The ball for this cake was made with the Wilton ball pan.  The base is a 10″ square.

Hamburger Cupcakes

Posted by Steph on Oct 7, 2013 in Birthday, Cupcakes, My Cakes

I had seen these cupcakes done before online, but hadn’t had a chance to try them until a friend  asked me to make them for her son’s birthday.  They sure were fun to make, and from what I heard, fun to eat as well. ;-)   They are yellow cupcakes with a brownie “burger” and icing for condiments.

Caramel Apple

Posted by Steph on Oct 3, 2013 in 3D Cakes, My Cakes, Novelty

Well with this October cake, Fall is officially here! :)   I have to give credit where credit is due for the inspiration for this cake – one of my favorite magazines – Food Network.   They featured this awesome cake in their most recent issue of the magazine, but you can see the instructions online on their website.   While I didn’t follow their cake/icing suggestions, I did follow their basic construction directions and had great success.  I would rate this as a pretty easy project, provided you have played around a little with making a cake before.  Overall I found it went together pretty fast – I spent much of my time waiting for the freezer parts for it to firm up.  But I kept busy during that time by baking some spice cake cupcakes and whipping up some cream cheese icing for those. ;-)   I’d say that’s a good use of free time!

I lack 9″ pans so I used four 8″ round cakes for this.  The caramel square amount is very accurate. This was certainly a fun cake to make. :)

Happy Fall!

So addicting!

Posted by Steph on Sep 19, 2013 in Birthday, My Cakes, Novelty

I don’t know how many of you are addicted to this “sweet” game, but I do love it!  Though I have been FOREVER stuck now on level 208!

My husband saw a pic of a Candy Crush game online and suggested I do one for the work cake this month….and here it is!  This is a 2 layer, 9×13 cake ~ and a few extra cupcakes. :)

Sweet!

Minion Cupcakes!

Posted by Steph on Aug 29, 2013 in Birthday, Cupcakes, Kid Themed, My Cakes

Its hard not to like the Despicable Me movies – and especially those hilarious (and sometimes inappropriate) minions! :)   It was sure fun to make up these little faces for my friend’s daughters.  The faces are made of a fondant/gumpaste blend.
