Baby Duck Baby Shower Cake

I made my first baby shower cake tonight. I carved it All!  I know that Wilton has a Baby Duck cake pan, but then it wouldn't be as fulfilling in the end for me. The cake has 6 layers of vanilla cake and the frosting is a vanilla swiss buttercream.

Lavender for Spring

I went to World Market yesterday and found some lavender buds in the spice section. They made me think of spring and so I baked some lavender shortbread cookies and some lavender cupcakes with vanilla bean swiss buttercream.  I took them to Brandon's work and let them devour them!

Chocolate Birthday Cake

Today I made a chocolate birthday cake for a friend's wife.  I used Wiltons Heart-Fill Tasty cake pan. The cake is devils food and I filled the heart space with chocolate mousse and chocolate buttercream.  The outside frosting is chocolate buttercream.  Cindy LOVES Bracks Chocolate Stars, so I added some to the edges.  Hope she enjoys her surprise!

Basic idea of what it should look like on the inside. 

Bella slept here the while I decorated. She loves the sun :)

Spider-Man Cake

I just made this for my friend's nephew today! It is a Spider-Man cake, decorated with a star tip.  This is my first cake with the star method, I am Very proud of myself.  The cake is marble and the frosting is a vanilla buttercream.

**Red frosting is HARD to make!!   I used about a whole jar of Wilton brand "No Taste" Red and powdered red tint.  Hopes that helps if you decide to make red frosting.

Peace Sign and Snowboard Cupcakes

I was asked to do cupcakes for a double birtday party for a boy and girl.  Dylan wanted snowboard cupcakes with chocolate mousse filling and Alexis wanted peace sign cupcakes with colorful frosting. I had a lot of fun with these!
