Oreo Cobwebs

This is a recipe for home made oreo cookies I got from a friend. Very easy and oh so yummy! I used buttercream frosting tinted orange to make my cobwebs on top.

For My Uncle Kenny

My uncle Kenny died this past weekend and this week is the funeral. I wanted to make something special in his honor and finally decided on doing a cupcake bouquet. I put vinyl lettering on the sides. My grandma will get to keep a pot and his wife Allison will get the other pot. I really like the custom pots that the family can keep and put a plant in and remember their loved one.

Birthday Cupcakes

Just a few yummy cupcakes I whipped up for a friends birthday :)

Black and White Cookies

I recently saw a You Tube clip of the Seinfeld show that made the Black & White cookie famous! My cousin also saw the post and wanted her own batch of homemade Black & Whites for her birthday. So here is my attempt!

Shortbread cookie with a cream cheese filling topped with half vanilla and chocolate fondant.

Sorry the pictures are blurry! I seriously need a new cameraman :)

October Wedding

This is for a wedding of a friend. The flower lady put the fresh flowers on after I left so the cake doesn't really look all that good right now :( I will get picture of the finished cake and post. Fresh flowers will be put on along with leaves made from fondant that you can see beside the cake. The branches are made from fondant.

Along with the 3 tier cake the bride wanted sheetcakes to finish feeding the guests. This is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and candied carrots for garnish.

Chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting and mini pb cups for garnish.

Lemon cake with a lemon frosting and candied lemon zest for garnish.

And for all of the non-frosting lovers (is there really such a thing?) chocolate cake with raspberry topping and a dollop of cream.

We're Ready For Some Football

I made these cute little cuppies for my little boys flag football game. Each week a parent is in charge of the snackies and today was our day. Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream grass and fondant footballs. I put the laces on with royal icing.

Ice cream cupcakes

So a good friend of mine loves to make homemade ice cream! We thought it would be really fun to try out ice cream cupcakes together - my pumpkin spice cupcakes, her cinnamon ice cream, my cinnamon cream cheese frosting! They turned out soooo yummy and definitely a learning experience!

School Carnival Fun!

Time for some fun at the school carnival. I thought it would be fun to go with the school colors. Hope the kids like them!

Cupcake Bouquet #2

This is the second cupcake bouquet I've done. Funny, she didn't want me to change the color scheme. She said it was already beautiful, no need to change it! So we didn't! However, she wanted lemon cupcakes and so I created a brand new flavor of frosting. We went with a lemonade buttercream, sweet yet tart! Tasty stuff!
