Valentine’s day is just around the corner ~ and I was on duty to make sweet treats for both the girls’ classes. I decided to keep it easy on myself and make them all the same and not too detailed. I did, after all, end up decorating 4 dozen cupcakes! 🙂 It didn’t take that long at all either. Chocolate cupcakes by the request of my chocolate loving girls…the icing is piped out half pink/half white. Dark pink cake sparkles on top and then I piped out chocolate pink and red hearts to put in top. Click an image to enlarge…
Tonight is my 4 yr old daughter’s Christmas program for school. I signed up to bring a sweet treat of course 😉 I love working with the blues of winter and snowflakes. So here are some blue iced cupcakes with some Wilton crystal sprinkles for “snow” and royal icing snowflakes that I piped. Boy were they fragile! I’m glad I made extra. But the delicate look of them is just what I wanted… Click the image to see a larger view.
These almost got away…I ALMOST didn’t decorate them but then I couldn’t let that happen! So here they are all fall’d up!
Here is another creation for my hubby’s work ~ turkey cake! Made up of cake and 4 waffle ice cream cones 🙂 “Stuffing” is cut up cake – lettuce is … well real lettuce 🙂 This cake went really fast and turned out better than I had thought it might LOL
I was going to title this post “the great pumpkin” ~ referencing the Charlie Brown movie ~ but then I decided that sounded kind of conceited LOL Though I am happy with the outcome and the fact that it went together very quickly. This festive pumpkin was made with 2 bundt cakes and then covered in fondant. The leaves/stem/vines are all fondant too. I also added some petal dust to accent the pumpkin.
These were made for my daughter’s class for Easter.
Here’s my stack of gifts ~ a 10″ square and 6″ round + 3 cake ornaments. The bow, all the ornaments and the gold dots are all shimmery/sparkly but it doesn’t show as much in the pic. Bow is made of sugar paste – my first one!
I made this cake for a family Christmas as a birthday cake for Jesus. The building is made of chocolate sugar cookie with icing on top. Figures are fondant. Cake has “For Unto Us A Child Is Born” written around it.
