Yellow cake with dulce de leche filling (YUM!) and cream cheese icing! All fondant- name was piped on stars with royal icing.
Pool Party Cupcakes
Inspired by a ton of different cakes/cupcakes on CC and Flickr. Chocolate cupcakes with whipped ganache filling and smooth ganache icing.
Surfboard Birthday Cake
Birthday cake for my son's birthday! My kids always get screwed on their cakes!! I had grand plans for this (inspired by another cake I saw on Flickr) but ran out of time! All buttercream with fondant and sugar cookie decorations. Shells are white chocolate.
Graduate requested a gold/black (school colors) grad cake with daisies! Tried Duff fondant for the black- won't be doing that again! All the rest is Satin Ice. The "gold" is luster dust mixed with everclear and hand painted. Love the sparkly effect it gave:) The grad caps are from a patchwork cutter. I also found some ADORABLE gold stars at Michaels and sprinkled them on the top of each tier.
Sesame Street Cookies
Copied from a design seen here on CC- Super easy and a big hit! NFSC with Antonia's RI
Elmo Birthday Cake
2nd Birthday cake for a dear friend's daughter. Friend sent me 3 cakes and told me what she liked best about the three of them and I incorporated all into this one cake! All buttercream with fondant accents.
Monkey Birthday Cake
Inspired by sooo many cakes here on CC!! HUGE thanks to Aine2 for her youtube tutorial on monkey cupcake toppers- It was priceless when it came to making the monkey topper :)
Lego Star Wars Cookies
So, I've NEVER heard of this "theme" until now, but it really works well together! NFSC with Antonia's RI. We went for a sort of whimsical look with the "legos" SUPER fast and easy! The only PITA part was hand-cutting them because I didnt have the right size cutter on hand. Cookie favors are to be light sabers with guests names in a Star Wars font.
Matilda Jane Cookies
Favors for a Matilda Jane trunk show! Probably the HARDEST cookies I've ever done!! The writing was incredibly small and hard to pipe! Coming up with a design was definitely no easy task, either. I ADORE Matilda Jane clothing for my daughter, but trying to recreate it on a cookie is insane! So many patterns and colors was just too much for a 3" cookie. NFSC with Antonia's RI.
Cinderella Birthday Cake
This was a SUPER last minute cake (got the order on Wednesday night- finished it Friday morning). All buttercream with fondant accents. There will be a tiara on top, but the client had to provide it since I didnt have time to make one out of RI or gumpaste. Sugarshack inspired design.
Cinderella Favor Cookies
These were a challenge!! Im visiting family out of town, and agreed to make some last minute favor cookies for a friend! I didnt have my cute tiara cookie cutter, and the local cake store didnt have any in stock so I had to settle for they ugly Hobby Lobby one :-/ Theme was Cinderella princess party. NFSC with Antonia's RI.
My first gift box cake! Thanks to bobwonderbuns for inspiration and instruction on how to achieve the proper shade of Tiffany blue, and Sugarshack's boxes and bows dvd! I learned a lot from this cake and will DEFINITELY give myself more time with the next one.
Just playing around with sample designs for Easter cookies. Not 100% thrilled with these just yet, but I'm running behind so this is what I have! Penny's sugar cookies with Antonia's RI. Lots of inspiration from various Flickr artists- as there are about a million versions of these, I have no idea who to give credit to!!
I cant lie, I LOVE these cookies!! 100% my design- I looked ALL over the place for gymnastics cookies and couldnt find any that I liked (or that I fit within my clients budget)- so this is what I came up with. She wanted balance beams and hot pink and black for the girls and rings and blue and red for they boys.
I just started playing with these last night, and I'll definitely be changing a few things up (like the popcorn in the popcorn box and smoothing out a few of the lines) but overall, I was pretty happy with them. I got the idea for these cookies from FLICKR artist CookieArtisan, but put my own spin on them. These are all hand cut, which is why the edges are still a little rough.
Made for a little girl to pass out to her preschool class. NFSC with Antonia's Royal Icing
These are the cookies I made for my kids friends! I found the tags online and personalized them and designed the cookie to match :) NFSC with Antonia's Royal Icing.
NFSC with Antonia's RI. Cookies for a little boys daycare class. Red/white are for the boys, Pink/White are for the girls, and the large Pink/Black are for the teachers. I have to admit that I LOVE the way these cookies turned out :) It was a challenge to figure out how to get the name of the giver and receiver on one cookie !
I've made 300+ of these cookies this weekend!! All are NFSC. "Melted snowman" cookies have Toba's Glace. All others have Antonia's Royal Icing.
Inspired by "Bouquet of Roses" cake by Fantasticakes. Yellow cake with buttercream icing/filling. Fondant stems (LOVE my Makins extruder!) and daisies (PME daisy plunger). Made for the wife of one of my husband's soldiers :)
Wedding Dress Bridal Reception
Bridal reception cake for some dear friends ♥ Buttercream (which I'll only do for people I love ;)) with fondant accents. I was given complete creative control over this cake, so I was a bit nervous over whether or not they'd like it! From what I understand, it was well received :) Total design credit and thanks to sue_dye !
