Pirate Ship cake

Pirate ship - This is all chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. I am usually completely against using things that are not edible on my cakes, but I had a sad little girl with an ear infection this same night and I wasn't able to let the sails dry long enough. They were way too weak to attach, so I made do with paper sails. But all in all, this was a super fun cake!

Emily's "Create your own cake" party

Emily's "Create your own cake" party - This was a fun thing to do. Emily my good friend's daughter. I have made her birthday cakes for years now, she plans them months ahead as do all her siblings. This whole year she has been telling me that she wanted to help make her own cake the next time. So they decided to make a whole party of it. I brought stuff to help them make cupcakes and cookies and they had so much fun! I forgot to take pictures of the cake we made...duh! But here are some of their creations. They did their own thing on the cookies and then I showed them how to make roses the easy Duff Goldman way for their cupcakes. They frosted their own cupcakes with the icing bags as well. Way too fun! It was SO much work, but it was worth it for Em. Happy Birthday Em!

Blue's Clues cake & cookies

Blue's Clues cake & cookies - This was chocolate with strawberry filling on top and french vanilla with chocolate filling. I loved doing the matching cookies for this one. You can't see the detail so much on this one, but if you click on it you can see a larger view. So fun!
