New Project!

I have a new project coming up and I am really excited about it! My friend's grandson is turning one and she asked me to make his bday cake. She made this darling Monster quilt and wants me to base the cake design from her quilt. I am going to do a cupcake tower and a smash cake featuring the adorable little monsters. I think each cupcake will have a fondant monster on it to match the quilt. Anyway, I will take pics along the way. The monsters will take a while but I think they will be worth it! If my friend doesn't mind I will post a pic of the quilt too. This could be a fun trend for 1st bdays or baby showers. I'll post the pics as soon as I get started!

Chocolate Decadence

This cuppie is devils chocolate with a dark chocolate mousse filling and topped with a whipped chocolate buttercream. The flower is dark chocolate fondant. I made these for my mom because she is wonderful and because she just bought me a professional Viking mixer- hooray!

Another Purse Cake

Well, I just finished this up today and really like how it turned out! The cake is done in fondant. I dry dusted the color. The mini purses are done with fondant and royal icing. The handle and flowers are done with gumpaste. The butterflies are hand made with edible rice paper and petal dust.

I hope the little girl this was for loved it!

Thanks for looking!

Fourth of July Cupcakes

These were for a little get together we had last night with some friends. They are vanilla with buttercream and filled with a sweet cream. Some might say that is a boring flavor combo but it is one of my favorites. TFL!
