Rockin’ Star Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 26, 2012 in Cupcakes, My Cakes

Today is my daughter’s 10th birthday!  Double digits! 🙂  Tomorrow she is going to bring these cupcakes to school to celebrate.  They are her design right down to the fun zebra print liners.  She even cut out the fondant stars.  I did the icing swirl and she did the sprinkles and stars.  We make a good team 🙂

Rockin’ Again

Posted by on Aug 16, 2011 in Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, My Cakes

Earlier this month my youngest turned 7.  We were out of town on vacation at the time so when we got back, we celebrated with family.  This year we combined her party with my niece’s party.  My niece requested something to do with Hannah Montana.  I ran this by my daughter and she was all good with it.  I decided to stick to the basic rock star stuff so here’s what I came up with.  This is a 10″ cake, iced in buttercream, with fondant “zebra stripes”.  The guitar and stars are made from gumpaste.

This cake was made for someone receiving a STAR award at my mom’s work.  Their logo is a tree.  This is an 11×15 cake with buttercream and the tree trunk, leaves and star are fondant.

American Girl

This was a birthday cake for 2 wonderful little girls turning 7 who love American Girl.  The standup/cutout in the middle is gumpaste and based on the old American Girl logo (see image below cake).  Cupcakes and stars on the cake were in colors to match the different girls.

The last of the guitars (for now…). 🙂  Again the guitars were made with royal icing piped out.  Fondant covered and piped on scroll work around the guitars on the base.  Real ribbon used.

Guitar Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 25, 2009 in Birthday, Cupcakes, Kid Themed, My Cakes

So its my oldest’s birthday tomorrow (she turns 7!!!).  A couple weeks back we started talking more about her birthday and what theme she wanted…and she decided on rock star. 🙂  This girl loves guitar hero, rock band, guitars and all that goes with it.  Yet in the next breathe she plays barbie and my little pony.  I can’t figure it out!   So when it came time to pick a cupcake for school she said “guitars!!!  or drums…or maybe a microphone…” 🙂  So we settled on guitars as that was probably easiest (and most fun) for me.  She picked the colors and wanted this style of guitar.

The guitars are royal icing piped (I made 30 of them! Only broke one – yay 🙂  ).  The stars are cut out of fondant and left to dry so they harden.  Then there’s icing and pink cake sparkles.  There will be more guitar cakes to follow as the celebration continues 😉
