Hi there...we didn't get in from Disneyland till midnight last night and I spent a good part of today on the train so this is the first chance I've had to log in and get things started! I'll write a longer post tomorrow but just wanted to post at all tonight! LOL!

Hello Cat, Hope you had a nice time at Disneyland. 

I didn't have any cakes for this weekend.  But will have plenty this coming week.  1 birthday cake for 2 little sisters.  My grand daughters birthday and my grandsons promotion into high school.  Also a nephew's birthday.  I think I'll be tired by the end of the week.

Hey Cat and everyone else.

First time in a Long while...Thought I show my face here again and say hi. 

Have been crazily caught up will all sort of stuff. Just now battling a faulty power line which cut me off the the last couple of days. It's unbelieveable how life Comes to a stand still without power in the house!!!

Anyway, did lots of cakes and other goods over the last couple of weeks, just never got the time to post anything on here. So, here is my latest and one of my kid's favorite: 48 "Dusty" cupcakes. Was fun making the first 10 or so...then just boooring. LOL. I figured I enjoy making single individual toppers way more.

Oh my goodness @julia1812 I'm sorry they got boring but they are SOOOOOOO cute! My grandson (he's 4) would simply adore those! I hope the electrical thing gets guys wouldn't know what to do with themselves! LOL!

@Nadiaa That is one chocolate overloaded cake! MY favorite! LOL! That also had to be a very expensive cake....with all of that candy! Whew! And even tho' it's candy, it's elegant. So symmetrical and clean looking. Very nice!

@auntginn your week makes ME tired! LOL! My son is also heading for high school. 3 more days and he's out for the summer! I can't wait! No cakes this week...obviously....but the meringues were a BIG hit. Don't know why I don't make those more often! My boys were dismayed that they got so few of the ones I made so I will probably be making more this week for them.

Wow very nice cake!!! I'm crazy for kit Katz Sooo I absolutely love it! I had cake pops to make this past week....I have it in my gallery it was the safari themed animals. It was my trial run before I do a huge order of  it in a few weeks. This week I have a frozen birthday cake to make. And currently am trying to change the filling in it because the recipient will not be able to refrigerate the cake. Any suggestions....originally it was suppose to be chocolate cake with whipped cream strawberry filling and chocolate ganache icing. Nowww...I have to change the filling...thinking of doing butter cream with strawberry preservative but scared it will be to heavy. The chocolate cake I make is very rich in taste that's why I like using whipped cream instead of butter cream. To balance the heaviness. Any suggestions?

@SoniaMT The cake pops are SO cute! As for your cake...yes, you can use the buttercream with the preserves, I do that all of the time...just don't make the filling a thick layer and it will help to keep it lighter. Can't wait to see it when you are done!

@SweetShop5 I love everything but what struck me the most were the cute paw patrol cupcakes and the details on the car cake! LOVE the gears on the board idea! Best wishes on those cookies! Hope it goes much smoother than anticipated!

You DID have a busy week, great for you! For your wedding cake with the vanilla and the chocolate, where did you get your tool that makes those beveled lines on your tiered topper cupcake tree? I want one!
