Today is a good friend and neighbors birthday so I made her favorite strawberry cake with buttercream frosting. Then I melted some chocolate and made some decorations on the top with a fondant bow and tag. The picture for some reason came in side ways, sorry!
Tomorrow is my mom's birthday so today my daughter and I made her a cake. She actually has two because she requested strawberry cake and one recipe makes so much and it's easier to make it all than half it. So the first cake is strawberry cake with buttercream frosting. Haley helped decorate it and did the bottom boarder and placed all the flowers. Then the next cake is strawberry cake filled with chocolate mousse topped in buttercream frosting and drizzled with chocolate gnash. Hope everyone likes it tomorrow at dinner. Also hope someone takes it all home so it won't be here for me to eat. :)
Today is my neighbors birthday and he really loves to fish. The other day he came over and told my husband he found a sticker for his boat and it said "Fear No Fish". So I thought it was appropriate I make his birthday cake have that design. So here it is. Yellow cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Hope he likes it!
Here are some easy end of the year cupcakes I made for my daughters Kindergarten class. They are almond flavor cake with buttercream frosting. The kids loved them and my daughter liked putting the swimsuits on the bears with edible writing markers. Can't believe it is summer already!
One of my daughters friends had a slumber party birthday and this is the cake I made for her. There were lots of little girls there! This cake is chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. It was really simple!
Well, this morning we had a brunch for my son's 3rd birthday. I can't believe my baby is already three. We had a cars theme birthday featuring lightening McQueen and Tow Mater. He had two cakes. Lightening McQueen was strawberry cake with buttercream frosting and Mater was Chocolate two later on the bottom and almond on the top for the cab part then all buttercream frosting. They turned out okay since I made them covered in buttercream they are not as perfect as I would have liked them, however you can tell who they are and they tasted good so that is all the mattered. :) The party was nice and small with family and close friends and it turned out great!
Well, another birthday has come and gone, it took a week to create all the pieces and less than 10 minutes to destroy it! :) But I think it turned out great, although at the end of the evening laying in bed I realized I forgot a piping detail that was supposed to go all around the bottom layer, kind of lace like. Also I made a fondant bow to go on the center layer, but then did not think it looked right and took it off. Oh well I don't think anyone thought anything was missing. The top two layers were cherry cake with chocolate frosting in the middle and covered in buttercream. Then the bottom layer was chocolate cake with chocolate frosting in the middle covered in buttercream. The decorations were made of gum paste, fondant, and royal icing. I even had some fiber optic lights fanning around the back and through the tiara on top, though you really can't tell in the pictures. Then my daughters cake was cherry also, her choice! All 24 kids seemed to have a blast. We did all the girls hair, makeup, and nails, played games and played in the bounce slide and playground. It was a huge success!
Today I made a lamb cake for a friend. It is a yellow pound cake with buttercream frosting. It was always a tradition in her family to get a lamb cake for Easter so she is starting the tradition at her house. Hope they like it!
Today I decorated these bug cupcakes. One bug is chocolate cake and one bug is white cake. Then I made the extra cupcakes into bug faces. All the writing, legs and antenna's are made from chocolate. Hope they like them!
So I made lots of Valentine cupcakes but I forgot to take pictures so these are courteous of my good neighbor. I made some for my family and made them into a heart shape and put cute little valentine picks on the top, but did not get a picture. These are yummy strawberry with buttercream frosting. They were really good, I had at least two a day, thank goodness they are all gone now. :) Hope everyone that got one liked it!
I made this cake for a neighbor's friend. If I had to make a really fast simple birthday cake for a girl/lady I would make this design. It is easy to make, yet looks really cute (or I think so anyway). :) This cake is almond flavor with buttercream frosting. Seems like I am making a lot of almond flavor lately. :) Hope the birthday girl liked it!
Today I made this cute princess cake for a little princess turning 2. The wand and tiara are made of fondant. The cake flavor is almond with buttercream frosting. Then I also made some cupcakes, some for girls princess pink of course and some for the boys in green with spots kind of like frogs. Hope they like it!
Today's cake is an animal theme cake, it is chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. I made all the animals out of fondant. It is for a 2nd birthday and until right at the moment did not realize I left off 2nd. Oh well, maybe they won't notice. :) Hope they like it!
Hi, I am a Texas A&M graduate with a bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies, minor in Reading and a Masters in Instructional Technology with a minor in Human Resource Development. I taught for several years in a public school but after having a child I wanted to stay home. So now I am a happy stay at home mom of two who likes to bake sweets and decorate cakes. So I thought I would start this blog so I could show cakes I have done over the years.
