Valentine's Cupcakes

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…

Snowflake Cupcakes

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.

Gobble, Gobble!

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.
