Crazy Socks and Cupcakes

Today I kept busy baking cakes.

The first one I started with was a crazy sock cake. It is to match the invitations for a crazy sock bounce party. I think it was a pretty creative theme. (She designed the invitations and has her own business, here is her link, you should check her out! The socks made the cake look really cute. They defiantly took some time to create but well worth it in the end. This cake is chocolate on the bottom layer and strawberry on the top layer and then covered all in cream cheese frosting. This is one of the few cakes I have covered in cream cheese frosting it is a little harder to work with because it is so soft. But it turned out great! I did have to bake the strawberry top layer twice due to it not baking fast enough before I had to go pick up my daughter. So I turned down the temperature and let it bake an hour extra. :) It seemed to be fine, but since it was for someones special day I thought I better bake another one. So the good news is we all got to eat strawberry cake (which by the way tasted just fine). Then I let my daughter decorate the leftovers to take to daddy's' work. She had a blast! They will be eating icing with strawberry cake. :) (there is a lot of icing on the cake)

So here is the crazy sock cake:There are socks all the way around Then I got to make some cupcakes. These are chocolate with buttercream icing and they really like my icing so I made sure to swirl lots on each cupcake. :) They are just generic cupcakes for a boy's party. I hope they will love them!
