Birthday Chica!

My little niece, Emilyn turned 1 this past weekend!
One of her most favorite characters to watch on tv is Chica on Sprouts! So that is what we decided to make for her 1st Birthday!
So here she is, Chica the chicken, along with a little cake just for Emy!This was my first time carving a cake. Although it was not a lot of carving, it was still nerve racking trying to get it just perfect! All in all, I think it turned out pretty good!And Emy's little cake was decorated with a whipped strawberry creme. She LOVED it!!!Happy Birthday Sweetie! Your aunt LOVES you!!!

To Infinity And Beyond!!

My little nephew Maguire is now 2!! I cannot believe it! They grow SO FAST!
This year, Big Mac is super into Toy Story and anything BUZZ!
So I made him a Buzz Lightyear cake! I love how it turned out with the "galaxy" and the little martians! He loved it (especially the toy I placed on top!)
My sister in law wanted me to make a pumpkin cake. So I made up a recipe on the fly and it turned out SO YUMMY! I made a pumpkin mousse using this stuff
(this is limited...go buy yourself some, it is divine!!)I plopped a thick filling of the mousse and drizzled a semi-sweet chocolate over top of the mousse for the filling! It was super delicious (I LOVE when cakes are made for family and I get a chance to sample the cake...ya know...for research, to make sure the end product was good!) My other sister in law even told me it was the best cake she has ever eaten! Yeah!
I am so glad it turned out good in taste and look! Happy Birthday Big Mac!!!

Topsy Turvy Birthday

I made my first attempted topsy turvy cake! I am pretty excited with how it turned out!

This was my vision/drawing...
And this was the actual cake! I wanted it to be turquoise and hot pink and think that the colors came out really good! This was for a little girl's 10th birthday! I hope she loves it!!
Happy Birthday Karsyn!
