Halloween Cookies

Today I spent the day making cookies. This is my first batch. The kids help make the batter and they decorated their own ones too. They are so much fun, and sort of easier to make than a cake. But I like to pay attention to the details, so it took me quite a bit to finished them. By the end I was doing about 5 minutes a cookie.... is that slow? the decorations are all on fondant. The black cats are chocolate fondant.

If the shoe fits! 40th Birthday Cake

OK, this was a private joke!! certain person I know had a pair of shoes exactly like these ones.. really, no joking!!! They were called sponge fingers. So what more appropriate than celebrating his birthday with a "sponge" shoe!!! Off course it is sponge cake covered with buttercream details. No cheese in this one.....

Airplanes anyone? A not so plain plane cake

Calling all pilots!!!
This is a specially designed plane for Ethan Airways - celebrating its 3rd year in planet earth! Yummy vanilla pound cake with fondant. The plane was carved out of the cake, no cheating with molds here.

What am I working on now?

A fairy cake!

I am quite excited about this one. A dancing fairy in a forest of flowers and butterflies!! So far I have just done the fairy, well this one is my second shot at it, the first one literally slide off my hand when it was almost done and broke in thousand pieces!!! I wanted to cry as I spend so much time on it. But it is OK, teh second one is prettier I think. I can wait to finish the whole cake.

A Baby Block Party - 1st year birthday cake

I always wanted to do one of this!!! a baby block. So I got my chance to celebrate birthday #1 of baby Matt - hence the block letters. The cake is layered (4 layers) of chocolate and vanilla pound cake. The white is buttercream and the accents are fondant. The baby and bear are half gum paste and half fondant. The baby actually looks like Matt - really.
