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”.

Christmas Gifts

Yes – that says CHRISTMAS.  I was editing some pics of cakes I’ve done this week and I ran across 2 cakes from mid/end Dec that I had forgotten to post!  So here’s one…better late than never!

This was the December work cake for my husband’s work.  It is a 6″ square on a 10″ square, iced in BC and fondant ribbons, bow and holly.

Merry (late) Christmas! 😉

Christmas Cookies & Minty Cupcakes

Posted by on Dec 10, 2011 in Cookies, Cupcakes, Holiday, My Cakes

I’m always amazed at how fast the month of December flies by.  I don’t know why I am STILL surprised by this because it happens EVERY single year. 🙂   Every year I take part in a cookie exchange where my decorated cookies expected!  I love doing exchanges because its a great opportunity to get a variety of tasty things without having to do all that different baking.

So here are the cookies I made this year…I’m particularly fond of the trees & ornaments.  My daughters both liked the presents.  The fondant bows were a bit tedious but well worth it when I saw the end result.

And later that week I had some leftover cupcakes so I made up some minty icing and striped it to create some mint chocolate cupcakes to donate with some of my cookies for a bake sale.  Yum!

Snowflake Cupcakes

Posted by on Dec 15, 2008 in Cupcakes, Holiday, My Cakes

Tonight is my 4 yr old daughter’s Christmas program for school.  I signed up to bring a sweet treat of course 😉  I love working with the blues of winter and snowflakes.  So here are some blue iced cupcakes with some Wilton crystal sprinkles for “snow” and royal icing snowflakes that I piped.  Boy were they fragile! I’m glad I made extra.  But the delicate look of them is just what I wanted… Click the image to see a larger view.

Christmas gifts

Here’s my stack of gifts ~ a 10″ square and 6″ round + 3 cake ornaments.  The bow, all the ornaments and the gold dots are all shimmery/sparkly but it doesn’t show as much in the pic.  Bow is made of sugar paste – my first one!
