Hot Air Balloon Cake and Cupcakes

Last weekend, I had a pretty cake crazy kitchen! I made this cupcakes and cakes for a little girl's first birthday party as well as the baptism cake below. I made it from sheet cakes and cut out the dress shape. Dave and I have had plenty of extra cake around here this week!

Baby Bum Cake and matching cookies

I'm almost all caught up on the blog. I made these matching cake and cookies for a recent baby shower. The cake was two flavors - the "bum" was triple chocolate and the bottom cake was vanilla. I made the feet out of rice krispy treats and I covered them in buttercream and fondant.

On another note, we have had an awesome, relaxing week at the beach with some really good friends. It has been a nice week to hang out and take a little time off from cake designing :)

Mickey Mouse Baseball Cake

I made this Mickey Mouse birthday cake for a 2nd birthday party. I had free range to do what I wanted - I love those orders! I just had to incorporate Mickey Mouse and baseball. It was a triple chocolate cake and was covered in buttercream and fondant. I cut Mickey out of fondant and used royal icing to outline him and add the stitching to the baseball. 

Annnnddd here is a pic of my little helper. He loves to lick the spoon ;)

Curious George Cake

This cake was made for a baby shower...I LOVE Curious George. "George" is one of Landon's favorite books right now so when I was making this little guy he was super excited. The cake was vanilla with strawberry filling and covered in fondant.

Bounce House Birthday Cake

Bounce house birthdays are very popular lately so it was fun to make a cake to go along with the theme.  I made this two tier, chocolate and vanilla cake for a recent birthday party. It was really special because I have made a cake for this family (twin boys) the last few years :)  Anywho, I used the invitation as inspiration for the cake. I hope they had a fun time at their party!! 

Oh yeah, I was playing around with picasa and thought this setting made the cake look really cool.

Over The Hill

I recently made this cake for a 40th birthday party. I have never made a tombstone before but I think it turned out kinda cool! I made the tombstone out of fondant and had to let it dry for a couple of days so it would be strong enough to stand up. It was lemon pound cake and was covered with buttercream with fondant details.

British Flag Cupcakes

I made these yummy red velvet and cream cheese icing cupcakes for a UK themed bridal shower. 

Engagement Rings and Cowgirl Boots

Howdy! I made these fun cookies for a bachelorette party a few months ago. I love the theme - how cute. Making them made me want a pair of cowgirl boots...maybe one day :)
