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!

Woodland Animals

Posted by on Oct 24, 2011 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This cake was for a friend’s little boy who turned 1 this past week!  She wanted a woodland animal theme and some fall thrown in too.  She had made an adorable Happy Birthday sign using a Cricut machine and she sent me pictures.  So I used those pics to duplicate the animals on the cake in fondant!  And they are all gathered around a “tree stump”.  The cake is a 12″ round cake, iced in buttercream and then wrapped around the sides with fondant for that tree trunk look.

And I loved this little fox – he reminds me of the Firefox logo 🙂

Happy Birthday, Stella!

Posted by on Aug 27, 2011 in Birthday, Gumpaste Figures & Flowers, Kid Themed, My Cakes

This weekend we are celebrating the 1st birthday of my little cousin.  Hard to believe a year has gone by already!  She’s so precious and such a blessing to her parents and our whole family.

I created the cake for the big day based on the invitations and the party decor.  First up is the main cake.  This is a cupcake cake made to look like the tree from the invitation (the pic of the invitation is below).  The leftover cupcakes I iced and threw a flower on to go with them.  All of the flowers are a fondant/gumpaste blend.

Invitation:

And these were the cupcakes that were extra:

And finally, what’s a 1st birthday without a smash cake? 🙂  The party decor was Owl based.  Super cute design.  So I replicated one of the owls for the smash cake.  The cake is primarily buttercream (to make it baby friendly) with just a couple fondant accents.  I love this cake…this owl is just so cute to me.  A pic of the party napkin is below the cake pic.

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.
