My daughter is at it again – designing her own cupcakes to take to school today.  She picked it all out… and even helped me do them.

Barbie Girl

Posted by on Feb 20, 2010 in Birthday, Kid Themed, My Cakes

My daughter turns 8 next Friday – hard to believe another year has come and gone.  It seems like I was just posting her birthday cake when she turned 7!  This year she wanted a Barbie girl theme.  I guess more “big girl” barbie?  Anyway, we had family over one day and her friends over the next day so…of course 2 cakes. 🙂  Here’s what she designed…she she designed them.  Right down to every detail…every dot color, every shape placement and the request of the 8 on top.  She even dipped into my colored pencil stash to help me sketch it.  It was so fun to see her bring her ideas to life on paper for me to create.  A budding cake designer!

All about fashion

Posted by on Mar 28, 2009 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

My little sister turned 18 last week and we celebrated her birthday party this weekend!  She is all about fashion, design and shopping (and her cell phone 😉  ).  This cake was all about her.  My older sister and I designed and created this together – another fine S&S creation 😉  Some details…

The purse and the shopping bag are cake, covered in fondant.  The tissue in the gift bag is gumpaste.  The handles on the purse are fondant as are all the decor – except the piping…which Shelly painstakingly piped for THREE hours!  She has a cramped hand now 🙂  But she did a great job!  Meanwhile I put together the gift bag and dress model.  The model is all fondant that I sculpted and then made a fondant dress for.  It is embellished with some piping.  We finished off the “Louis Vuitton” handbag with both tan and gold painted embellishments (including a zipper pull that Shelly embossed with a LV logo.  Its all about the details, folks 🙂  The shoe and cell phone I made a few days earlier from gumpaste.  They are painted with luster dust to shimmer.

In the end it took us just about all day to do this cake….lots of putzy time (and kids interrupting) went into this!  But well worth it. 🙂

Misc Cookies

I was playing around and made these today…There is some things I would do different with the cake cookies but I didn’t really “plan” anything before I went wild with the frosting 🙂
