Okay, so I made  another cake this morning.  Holy cow!  I saw a pic of this cake and really wanted to try and make the cake to see if I could.  It is a yellow cake with buttercream frosting.  The ghost head is rice krispie treats.  The ghost is out of fondant.  It was a fun cake to make. 
I have one more cake to make this week and then I think I will be done for a while.  We'll see how long that lasts :)  I have had fun baking these last three days.  It has kept a smile on my face. 

Have a good rest of the week everyone!


I made the birthday cake for my girlfriend's little one's 1st birthday.  She was doing the Construction Pals theme.  I made the cake to match.  It is a marble cake with buttercream frosting.  Fondant accents.  The truck is made from Rice Krispie Treats covered in fondant.  I am pleased with how it turned out.
Jackson seemed to like the cake.  I made him a separate smash to go after.  He liked the red and green frosting.  Didn't really go for the cake too much.  Overall, it was a hit.

I had some leftover cake so I made some cake pops.  I haven't made any in a while.  I think I need to buy different candy melts.  The wilton ones don't seem to want to melt that well.  I used chocolate in the double boiler and that worked pretty good.  I also have to start making the balls smaller.  It is getting too heavy for the dipping process.  I still have a lot more to learn with them. 
Here is the white pumpkin:

Next is the Pirate:

And last we have the Mummy:

I hope you all enjoyed today's post.  I am in the middle of baking another cake :)  I saw a pic of a cute ghost cake, so I decided to make it.  I feel like all I have done these last three days is bake.  But, I am still having fun while doing it so that is all that matters.  I will post it later on when it is done.

Till then...

Cupcake :)

Last weekend a couple girlfriends and I went to a new cupcake shop in South St. Paul called Sweet Bebe Cakes.  We each bought 6 cupcakes and tasted all the different flavors.  Their cupcakes are very good and rich.  We definitely could have used some milk :)  The store just had one case for their display.  Had 12 different kinds to choose from.

I think my favorite one was the Oh My Gosh Ganache!  It was fudge cake, ganache filling and chocolate buttercream.  A classic!

Needless to say, I was inspired!  I made some cupcakes for our friends who got married that night.  I made a new yellow cake recipe with buttercream frosting.  The cake was a good recipe.  The swirls are made from chocolate.
I had a few cupcakes leftover.  I was looking online at you tube.  I found these flower cupcakes that were adorable and they looked really easy.  I looked and saw that I had the tip to do them.  So, I tried and they turned out great!!  They are probably my favorite cupcakes that I have made yet.  I was thinking of making them for our work's craft and bake sale in December.

I have had fun making cupcakes from scratch.  I find it more fun to bake them.  I look forward to seeing how they will turn out.

I made a cake today for a friend's little one's 1st birthday.  It took a lot of the day, but I hope he likes it.  It is not stacked yet, so I will post pics after the party. 

Till then, happy baking :)
