Happy Birthday Hayden!

I had my son's 1st birthday party this past weekend! He had a Sesame Street Babies theme, and so I made the cake accordingly! This is my favourite cake to date :)

Halloween Cake

Sorry I have been MIA, I have been super busy with school this term. I just completed a Halloween cake, and this month I have two birthday cakes planned so I promise to update :)

Here is a 2 layer chocolate and french vanilla cake with buttercream icing. The accents (cat, headstone, ghosts, pumpkins and spider) are made from fondant. The grave is covered with crumbled mint girl guide cookies! YUM!

I had lots of fun making this one!

Fall Cupcakes!

I had a little bit of batter left so I whipped up some cupcakes! YUM!

Hunting Cake!

This was a cake I baked for my cousin's birthday. It was a hunting theme party, so obviously the cake had to match!
It's a chocolate cake with chocolate icing. The leaves are gumpaste.

Music Cake

I made this cake for fun...I figure it's a nice size smash cake. I was trying a new icing technique called a frozen buttercream transfer...I still have some practicing to do!
The idea is cute though.

Happy Birthday Mario!

Mario turns 25 this year, and I was inspired to create a cake just for him! Of course, I didn't do as much with it as I would have liked, but here are the sides that I finished:

Here is the old school castle!

This is the more 'modern' Mario.

I wanted to do Mario Kart and Paper Mario, but alas, I have a 10 month old and I don't get enough time to do projects just for fun!

Happy Birthday to me!!

Needless to say, I wanted to make my own birthday cake this year. I got some round cookie cutters and did this cute little design:

It's a chocolate cake with chocolate icing inside. Very sweet, but delicious :)

Chocolate cake for the ladies!

My son and I attend a play group every week. We take turns hosting at our houses. This is the cake I made when I hosted.

It's a chocolate cake with chocolate icing. The fondant is made from scratch; my first ever attempt at homemade fondant! It turned out great; everyone gobbled it right up!

First ever fondant cake!

This was the first cake I ever covered in fondant! I've been baking for awhile, but I never tried anything "fancy" until now! It's just a plain vanilla cake with buttercream icing. The calla lillies turned out alright, although I've gotten much better at forming them.
