St. Patricks (in April)

Posted by Steph on Apr 26, 2013 in Holiday, My Cakes

Well if you haven’t been able to tell by the gap in posts, I’m woefully behind in posting cake pics!  I’m starting to catch up today with a few posts – more to come!

This cake was actually the cake my husband took to work for March birthdays – hence the rainbow/clover theme. 😉  I also tried the whole make cake balls in a cake pop pan and put them in the batter of a cake trick I saw on pinterest.  Fun!  So the 2nd 2 pics were taken by my husband at work to show the results.  My only regret is not having MORE of the green balls inside for more affect.

St. Patricks Day

Posted by on Mar 17, 2011 in Holiday, My Cakes

It is hard to believe that the middle of March is here again.  It seems like I was JUST posting February’s work cake – and now here is March’s cake!

Since the meeting/party is this week I went with a St. Patty’s theme – much like I did 2 yrs ago. This time around I decided to use the fun of those rainbow cupcakes and make a rainbow cake!  I did it with a similar method that I made the rainbow cupcakes, but instead I spread it over 2 pans worth and this time I actually spread out the batter vs. heaping it in the middle.  I’m pretty pleased with the results! (see inside pic below!)

So this month we have a 10″ cake (the rainbow cake) and a 3 layer tall 8″ cake for the leprechaun’s hat on top of it.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

And a closeup of the “pot ‘o gold”…

And the inside of the rainbow cake…yes I cut this cake in half before I decorated it 🙂  I told my husband of my intentions and he said “they don’t care – as long as they can eat cake”  ha!  But I had to get a pic of how it turned out!

Over the Rainbow Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 26, 2011 in Birthday, Cupcakes, Kid Themed, My Cakes

My oldest daughter turns 9 today.  And like most girls her age, she loves rainbows.  We went over a variety of possibilities for her cupcakes that she would take to school.  Her actual b-day party is Hello Kitty themed but she wanted something different to take to school.  She decided on this.

But of course we had to take it to the next level 🙂

Random Cupcakeness

Posted by on Apr 26, 2009 in Cupcakes, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

I had some cupcakes from some leftover cake batter…what to do….  I was a little unsure what to even do with them this time.  I was feeling uninspired.  And of all the horrors, my hubby ate one before I got a chance to decorate it!  He tells me *gasp* he doesn’t really care if there’s frosting on it! :O  I’m not sure what’s wrong with him 😉

In the end I came up with two styles…one more fancy, one fun for the kids.  The black and pink ones have fondant flowers on them…one I did a fondant gerbera daisy (or a variation of one 🙂  ).  I don’t normally use fondant for this type of flower but it worked ok.   The rainbow cupcakes I did with my girls in mind as they love rainbows.  Hubby ate one of these as well LOL 🙂

Pot 'o Gold

Posted by on Mar 19, 2009 in 3D Cakes, Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Holiday, My Cakes

This is March’s birthday cake for my husband’s work.  Two days after St. Patrick’s Day so we did a themed cake.  The pot is cake, covered in fondant, base is cake with icing.   The only things non edible are the coins ~ just didn’t have time to make something.  But its all good.  The rainbow is gumpaste.  The base cake is 10″ square to give some size reference…
