Farm Animals

I made these for my son's birthday cake.  I can't believe he is already turning one!  I had a lot of fun making them and had forgotten how much I enjoy sculpting.  His cake will be finished on Saturday so I'll post pictures then of the finished product.  I was going to take pics while I was making them and do a pictorial but I got too involved and forgot to take pics.  Oh well.  They would make a fun class too. 
Thanks for looking!

Frosty the Snowman and Melting Snowman Cuppies

I have seen several of these over the last month or two and I really wanted to make them so here are my versions of the two cupcakes.  I love my little Frosty, I' really happy with the way he turned out.  I made the melting snowmen for my daughter's class.  She thought I should make some frowning.  She said they couldn't really want to smile because they are melting all away- I thought that was cute.  I personally prefer the smiling snowman, what do you think?

Cupcake Giveaway Contest!

I am gearing up for spring and want to add some new flavors to my standard list.  I thought it would be a lot of fun to get my readers involved so I have decided to do a cupcake flavor contest.  If you have an idea for a new flavor combination send me an email or leave a comment on this post.  January 29th I will stop accepting new flavors and then I will try the different flavor combos.  Who ever has the winning combo will recieve a dozen cupcakes of their new custom flavor(pick up only- sorry)!

Minnie and Mickey Cupcake Display

I LOVE Disney and I love Mickey Mouse so when our friend asked if I would make cupcakes and a stand with Minnie and Mickey I was pretty excited! The cupcakes are chocolate fudge with marshmellow cream filling and whipped buttercream on the top. Hope you like the pics!

2 Day Cake Class

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to the new year and a new decade!  With this new year I really want to focus on teaching the art of cake design.  I would like to get mini classes going but right now I want to get some feedback on a weekend class.  It would start on a Friday at 5:30pm and go until 8pm.  We would break for the night and get back together at 9am where breakfast would be provided.  Instruction would go until 5pm with a lunch break included in the price.  At the end of the class you would go home with a two tier decorated party cake.  What do you think?  Anyone interested?
