Hoot! Hoot!

Posted by Steph on Aug 27, 2013 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, My Cakes

This fun owl was made for my daughter’s & niece’s birthday parties in early August.  I kind of meshed together a few ideas I saw online to come up with this.  Everything is icing on this, except for the big ‘ole eyes! 🙂  It is a 10″ round cake.

Pink & Sparkly

Posted by on Nov 12, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

That post title says it all! 🙂  These cupcakes were for a friend who likes pink and likes it sparkly!  Paired with these damask black/white liners, they were ooh la la!   Its hard to see the “sparkle” of these but they had a dark pink sugar sprinkled on top.

A Pumpkin Princess

My niece turned 3 this weekend and the theme was pumpkin princess! She likes all things sparkly and pink. 🙂 This cake is a 10″ round with a pumpkin cake on top. The pumpkin was carved out of the wilton ball pan and covered in fondant. The crown is gumpaste with a hard candy jewel on it.

Daisy Wedding Cupcakes

These 100+ cupcakes were made for the daughter of a friend.  I love these bright, cheerful colors!  The daisies are gumpaste.  The cake is a 6″ cutting cake.  For flavors on these we did white cupcakes with cookie & cream filling (6″ cake was also this flavor), chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter filling, and banana chocolate chip cupcakes with banana cream filling.

Baby Shower Yummies!

Posted by on Jul 31, 2012 in Baby, Cupcakes, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

This cake was for a baby shower ~ the mom-to-be wanted a main decorative cake plus yummy cupcakes on the side.

This cake was an 8″ & 12″.  Buttercream with fondant accents.  The bow and shoes are fondant/gumpaste blends. I did a similar cake in the past that she loved but instead of a fondant elephant like that one had, she wanted the little girly baby shoes.

The cupcakes were yummy flavors ~ raspberry cupcakes with white chocolate icing, chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting & chopped pb cups, lemon cupcakes with lemon icing, and [not pictured] strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese icing and a strawberry on top!

Pink Zebra

Posted by on Jun 26, 2012 in Birthday, My Cakes

For this month’s work cake, my husband asked me to do something geared towards one of his co-workers who was leaving the university that week.  So that was the inspiration for this cake!  I love doing zebra print – its fast and fun.  This is an 8″ and 10″ with buttercream and fondant accents.

Hello Kitty Cupcakes

Posted by on May 15, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

Last week my youngest daughter celebrated her summer birthday at school.  She requested Hello Kitty cupcakes.  The kitty heads were made using a royal icing technique that I previously wrote a tutorial on.  She loved them and so did her classmates!

This weekend was a busy one here as we celebrated my daughter’s 10th birthday with her friends and family.  This first cake was for her friend party.  She picked out the design and I just went with it 🙂  She loves Monster High so you will see a theme with this cake and the next 2 posts.

This cake is an 8″ round and the skull is done out of gumpaste, the wording is fondant.
