Popcorn Cake

It's time for Popcorn at the Circus

This is a cake and cupcakes done for a birthday party for twins (boy & girl) turning 2! They had a circus theme, so I made the cake to look like a giant bag of popcorn. Definitely a big cake! 6 layers tall!!!

Then we made 1 dozen cupcakes to look like individual servings of popcorn.

Baptism Dress

This is a dress cake made for a good friend's daughter who was getting baptised. The cake is covered in fondant and I attempted to do the trip work all out of royal icing. However, when I started moving the royal icing pieces to the cake they just crumbled into pieces :( Major frustration! I knew they would be delicate, but there was no way. So, I accepted that that idea would work and instead did all of the detail work out of piped buttercream. I used the same design and I used for the royal icing.

Here is a picture of the royal icing lace I made that crumbled :( (Before it crumbled)

1st Cupcakes In The Park

We had a blast at Cupcakes In The Park! Not as many people showed up as I was expecting so I was kind of sad about that but we still had a great time with lots of yummy cupcakes! I liked the fact that people came regardless of whether they had home made or store bought cupcakes! They just came to have fun! I'll let you know when we are having another one! It will definitely be a do again!

My daughter loves horse back riding so for her family party I thought it would be really fun to make a cake that looked like her favorite horse Chester. It actually turned out pretty accurate, Chester has kind of a short face with bright blue eyes and black specks. We don't normally use a maroon bridle but that's okay. Lots of fun to make however she said that eating Chester was the worst part of the day. She said it just felt wrong lol! At least it was vanilla cake and not red velvet right???

Twilight Ice Cream Cupcakes

For my daughters 13th birthday we went with a twilight theme. I thought it would be fun to make ice cream cupcakes for her with a Twilight theme fondant topper. She had chocolate cupcakes with cookies 'n cream ice cream, a layer of buttercream frosting and then the fondant topper! Yummy!!!

Retro Mini Cupcakes

These cute little cupcakes were for a Children's Art Gallery function! So cute with the little retro circles! And the mini cupcakes were just the right size!
