Yankees Cake!

Edited to add that I actually wrote this last night and just realized I phrased everything all funky since you’re just reading it this morning.  Whoops! I am absolutely exhausted and am thinking the big crash and burn might happen soon. Last Friday was a big PTO event for 500+ kids that I was on …

Dog Cupcakes

My niece’s birthday was this weekend, which reminded me that I still need to go through all my old pictures and post all the cakes and cupcakes that I made in my pre-blogging days.   Well, that and I’m still dealing with this migraine, so nothing too fancy  going on over here until I get …

Dr. Seuss Cookies

Quick and easy cookies to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday!  (and this is going to be a quick and easy post because I’m tired.)       For these super simple cookies, you need small sugar cookies, red fruit roll-ups, marshmallows and some icing.  I cheated and used a bag sugar cookie mix.  I got exactly …

Baby Cakes!

I’ve been going through some old pictures lately, and found some cakes I made for baby showers!   It’s getting me all nostalgic, because I remember waiting for these little babies and now  there’s all these kids running around in their place!  How does this happen so fast??     This cake was based off …

Mardi Gras Desserts!

Horse Cupcakes

I made these awhile ago and they’re still one of my favorite cupcakes ever! They were super simple and I just loved the green frosting against the brown horse! I just tinted my fondant brown and then rolled an oval for the head.  I have a tool to help press out the center of fondant …

Golf and Trucks!!

Neither of which am I “into”, but it was a customer order and actually a lot of fun! She wanted golf cupcakes and a truck cake for her dad’s 60th… specifically a ’49 Chevy that looked like his truck! For the putting green, I didn’t really have a cookie cutter for the shape I wanted …

Luau Birthday Party Cake

Here’s a cake I made for a sweet 16 party last summer! Uh, nerve-wracking!!   I was at my kids’ school one day when someone stopped me and said she heard I made cakes occasionally… would I make one for her granddaughter’s 16th birthday. The “yes” shot out of my mouth before I ever thought …
