Wedding Cupcakes

My cousin called me a few days before her wedding reception in a bit of a pickle. She needed a cake for her wedding, but it was too late to order one. Knowing how stressed out she was, I offered to help. However, there was no way I would be able to bake and nicely […]

A Curious George Party

A few months before my daughter’s birthday party, I asked her what kind of theme she wanted. She was (and still is) obsessing over two characters: Barney and Curious George. However, no offense to Barney, but I cannot stand that purple dinosaur. So…Curious George it was. If you are a DIY type of person and […]

Meanwhile, my daughter recently celebrated her second birthday and had a Hello Kitty themed party. Here is the cake I made: Each tier was half coconut cake and half chocolate […]

Basic Cake Decorating – Happy Father’s Day!

I participated in a basic cake decorating class at my local Viking School last weekend. In honor of Father’s Day, I decided to practice my decorating techniques by creating a cake for my husband. This is what I made by the end of class: My husband jokingly called it a grocery store cake, but I’m […]

Flowers and Bow Cake

I took an advanced cake decorating class at the Viking School and learned how to decorate with fondant and gum paste. The class was a lot of fun and not intimidating at all! Here is what I made by the end of class:
