Weekend of Family making cupcakes and a Hamburger Birthday Cake!

This weekend we had a family party at my house with some egg coloring/decorating and cupcake decorating! My family is all so creative! I think they all turned out so good! Here are a few samples!
I loved this one I made, it was my favorite!!

I also had a birthday cake to do this weekend and they decided on my doing a hamburger and fries! Not too shabby! Looks good enough to eat!

Spring is my absolute favorite season - BY FAR!! I love all of the colors, the sounds, the weather getting warmer, the sound of lawnmowers, the smell of BBQ's...and the decorations! Here are a few that I have done for the spring time this year!
These flowers I made for my girls - this weekend we are having a spring "photo shoot"! They will look so good with their Easter dresses!

My attempt at modeling them! Man, I need to do my roots! :)
My spring wreath on the front door! I love it! So welcoming!

And you cannot forget my little stitchery made just for easter time!

I made these this past weekend! I love my Cricut! (I also used the Cricut for the live, laugh, love frame behind it!) I love the colors!!

So bright, lively...and well...springy!!

P P P Poker Face!

This cake was made for my step-kids, grandpa, who is very sick wtih cancer. At such a sad depressing time in the lives of all who know and love him, his family wanted to have a party to celebrate with him and not be focused on the sickness. He is an avid fan of the poker playing! So I was given the suggestion of maybe making a sheet cake into a poker card...well I cannot just do a poker card! :) I had to challenge myself and for Rich, I needed to make something that was cool! I decided to make a hexagon shaped poker table with cards, chips and dice! The kids helped in making the poker chips so they could be a part of it too! I think it turned out pretty good and the look on all of their faces was worth it! My step-daughter picked out the cake flavor and wanted to do the funfetti - so we did that and added a filling of coconut cream...tasty!
