These were made as an end of the year gift for all the wonderful teachers, intructors and helpers in the various activities my girls are involved in. Thanks to them all for the wonderful job they do! I hope this helps them to get in the spirit of summer time, which is right around the corner!!
This is just the first round, I'll be doing 8 more buckets next week! Whew!
My first attempt at "cookies on a stick" and I think they turned out really cute. These were for the beach themed preschool closing program for Maryella. I found a good sugar cookie recipe that holds up well on the stick. I want to experiment with it a bit more, but everyone seemed to like them. They are iced with royal icing.
I made this cake for my nephew's 1st birthday. What a FUN cake to do! 6, 8, and 10 inch, iced in buttercream with fondant accents (characters, letters, sign, stripes and polka dots)
At home before transporting and adding the number 1 on top...
After traveling 3 hours and sitting outside in the heat for awhile.Smash cake, all buttercream except for the fondant polka dots. The characters are candles.

One of my all time favorites!! I made this for Maryella's 3rd birthday and she was in love with it! It's iced in buttercream with fondant accents (rocks, mushroom top, leaf, tree branch). The doll, of course, is real. The mushroom and tree branch are all just pieces of extra cake.
These are two cakes I made for the 2 seasons that Annlee played t-ball. They made quite a "hit"! The home plate cake is my favorite. That's crushed graham crackers on top and home plate is covered in fondant. I made a stencil and dusted powdered sugar to get the base lines. The second one is all buttercream.
I loved these chocolate sea shells I made for Annlee's end of the year preschool program. It's always a beach themed program and these were fun to bring! I especially loved the marbled looking ones. They looked real!

Annlee really wanted an ice cream party for her 5th birthday and I went back and forth as to what kind of cake I wanted to make. I debated using ice cream to make the cake, but ended up going with this instead. I think it turned out so cute! I added chocolate chips in the green icing to look like mint chocolte chip - one of our favorite flavors! I wish I added some peppermint extract to that icing also, but I didn't think about it until later. It's all buttercream, the cherry is real. It's cut from a 9x13.
This is a cute cake I made for Maryella's 2nd birthday. I made the head and bottom with a wonder mold and the rest with pieces from a round cake, but I can't remember what size round pan I used. The fur was piped with the "grass" tip and all the rest was done with fondant. This was such a fun cake to make and Maryella loved it!
I'm so excited to have finally started a cake blog! I've been wanting to do this for a long time and now I have! I'm going to try to go back and put up pictures from a lot of the past cakes I've done and I'll be posting pictures of my first real cake order soon!!! I can't wait!
