I hate blogging without pictures. However, I felt I needed to explain my lack of posting lately. It is NOT due to the fact that I haven't had cake pictures to post...oh no...far from that! I actually have quite a few cake pictures to post. It's because I've been so busy and mainly from cake!! NO complaints here!! One happy Cake Lady I am!!
I will post pictures as soon as I get a chance, this week, I promise!!
I've done a little bit of everything from transformers, to sweet little flowers, to Noahs ark and even Chic-fil-a!!!! I'm still loving every minute of cake decorating!! I should also take this post to thank all of my family, friends and fellow cake guys seriously rock for all of the support you're giving me!!! Thank you!!!!

I'll post soon, so please forgive me now and don't give up on me :)

Rubber Ducky Cake

It's very exciting when somebody has a piece of cake or cupcake that I've made and then contacts me to make a cake or cupcakes for them! That's how this cake came to be :) This was for another baby shower, rubber ducky themed! Vanilla cake with buttercream icing. The duck is RK's covered in fondant, the rest of the decorations are fondant (wooden wash tub, bubbles, ribbon and soap). I really enjoyed making this cake. I'm getting more and more practice with stacking cakes!

2 more birthdays!

From the moment I started this blog I had a faithful and sweet follower. She asked me over a month ago to make two cakes, for two up coming birthdays in her family. One was a spiderman birthday cake and the other was a cross birthday cake. Both cakes were vanilla with buttercream icing. All decorations were edible. It was nice making a cake for someone that found me through this blog and then getting to meet them in person!!
The spiderman was a lot of fun to make! He was made out of fondant and then I used a small cake paintbrush to paint (with edible icing color) the spider web print on his outfit.

Its a Boy!

I happen to be a VERY big dog lover, so when I was asked to make cupcakes for a puppy dog themed baby shower, I was excited! 3 dozen cupcakes were made. 12 puppy dogs, 12 last name initial "C" and 12 paw prints! I had a lot of fun making these cupcakes. Half were classic yellow and half were chocolate. All decorations were fondant.

And Another Birthday...

I wanted to try a fully covered fondant cake. Luckily, I have a friend that didn't mind if I tried a new cake skill out on her birthday cake!
I wanted it to be modern, girly girl. Zebra stripes and diamonds. Her first initial is K. The cake is classic yellow, covered in buttercream and then in fondant. The only thing not edible are the diamonds.
As you can see, I still have a bit of practice to go but fondant covered cakes are a fun cake option! They are a lot different to work with than a buttercream cake. I will continue to practice :) and I know I'll eventually get the hang of fondant! I made sure to cover my cake in buttercream so that the fondant could be peeled off and the cake would be like any other cake underneath.


So, I cut up little pieces of paper and wrote down the names of everyone that left a comment on my last post. I put the pieces of paper in a cup and picked one!!!

The name on the paper "MOM". Eh' I love her, but my mom will always be my number one fan :) I knew she would not mind if I drew another name. Plus, how rigged would that have looked!? So the winner is:

Monica Crew

Thanks for all of the comments guys!! Yesterday was my birthday and while I didn't make a cake for myself, I did make some cakes and 3 dozen cupcakes! I'll post those pictures soon!!
