Just a few more cakes & cupcakes - and we'll have covered it all. :-)
Putting extra vanilla makes buttercream that beautiful color and the taste, yumm.... wow I never knew how much I liked vanilla until I tried it this way. Above were "just cause" cupcakes to enjoy with friends. :-)
Below is a wedding shower cake for a bride who loves purses. The handle is made of fondant "beads" that are strung on a wire. Forgive the terrible picture, the light is all wrong- but it was a cute cake and in person the "leather purse" idea come across great.
I will say, this will probably always be my favorite way of doing a cake board.
Below are two quick cupcakes (Halloween & Christmas) that I did for my daughter's Kindergarten class. Not sure if you can see, but I did add smiles to all the spiders just to make sure they looked friendly!
Below, I tried a different frosting idea- I used royal icing to get that smooth, sheen. And the decorations are made of colored white & regular chocolate that I piped out onto wax paper.
Well that's the quick of the long. My "cake" season is coming up (with all of my family having birthdays in the spring/summer). Plus a few more events thrown in there. Hopefully I'll be better at posting quicker! Too bad I didn't have any cake to eat while posting these pictures- I'm hungry now - anyone up for baking? :-)
