Hi everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter Weekend. Not many plans here. Dinner with family is about it. We've had Spring Break here this week for our schools so our son has been on vacation. Since my hubby and I both telecommute it means we have all three been together all week..I'm going insane. LOL! 

My grandson's birthday dinner is next week and I'm making him a Lego Batman cake. I had to make the figure this week so it would have time to dry solidly. I wasn't even sure I could do it but I was pretty happy when I did! So the figure and the logo are drying out this week so I can place them on the actual cake next week.  Other than that I have some cookies to make for Sunday. 

Can't wait to see what you all show us tonight!

Sounds like a fun cake Cat! I didn't have a busy week either, in fact, I didn't have any orders, so I decided to make some Easter cake pops for the family!

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!

Okay, now it worked...So, that was a Barbie cake. First one in a long while. The mother wanted it to serve 8 people, lol. Took me some time to explain why that's not possible. This one is a 6" schwarzwälder kirschtorte. So yummy... My favorite!

And these are cupcakes I made for a friend's birthday: Half were chocolate cupcakes, filled with homemade butterscotch and butterscotch Swiss meringue buttercream and caramel toppers. The other half were vanilla cupcakes with strawberry smbc and fresh strawberries on top.

@SweetShop5  I am in LOVE with your cake pops! They have got to be the cutest I have EVER seen! I can't pick which style I like the best since I love them all!

@julia1812  Your Barbie cake is perfection! Simple dress but the butterflies give it style! I know quite a few "pink" girls who would be overjoyed to see that on their tables! The kirchtorte looks amazing. I bet it tastes amazing too. I had a piece when I was in Bavaria and oooooooo SO good!  I do have a question about your that caramel drizzled on the top of some of them? Did you let it go very hard before placing it on top??? Trying to figure out how you did that! LOL!

Lol, actually I was a bit indecisive about what I wanted! I drizzled some butterscotch over the smbc but then thought they look too boring. So I made caramel, quick zigzag design...burned the first batch completely as I stupidly answered my phone...and had to make a new batch. So I could call them sugar over load cupcakes, haha! And yes, it's the proper caramel, which hardens in seconds. But I sort of leaned them against the swirl because when I placed them in upright, I couldn't close the lid of the cupcake box. Oioioi, nobody noticed anyway

This is my new Inside Out Easter Egg.  I baked colorful batters inside egg shells and sealed the hole at the bottom with melted chocolate.  You crack open the eggs like you would a hard boiled egg and out comes the egg shaped cake.  It was a hit with the family.

The real trick seems to be not shattering the shell in the first place! Cool idea @Pastrybaglady
