1st Birthday

30 Mar


This is a 1st birthday cake that I made for a friend. It was a strawberry shortcake cake. I hope they liked how the cake turned out. One of the things that I wish I could do is taste the cake. But I guess when you stick to your standard recipes you basically know how it should turn out. Grace (my friend) was nice enough to bring me a piece. It’s not like cupcakes where you can make an extra one to taste test. I hope baby Ella had a great 1st b-day.


Couple Silhouette Cookies

19 Mar

Hello All,

Here are some silhouette cookies I made for my cousins Adam and Katie. I got the idea from Sweetopia’s blog. Once I saw them I thought of Katie and thought it would be nice to put the couple in the same cookie.


Happy Baking…

Make Up Birthday Cake

16 Mar

Wow 2 posts in two days! Here is a make up cake I made last weekend for my cousin Christina’s daughter Olivia. She was turning 4 and asked for a make up cake. Here is what I made. All make up (lipsicks and eyeshadows) are made with fondant. The cake itself is red velvet with cream cheese icing.


“Make Up”

16 Mar

In February I made some treats for Samantha’s friend Sarah. She turned 6 and her theme was Monster High. Here are some of the treats that I made…

These are eyeshadows I made with regular oreos. I used royal icing to “glue” the top portion to the bottom. I brushed the cream centre with a mixture of clear vanilla extract and foodcolouring. I used a Cadbury mini chocolate finger and dipped the tip in coloured royal icing for the brush.

These are cake pops that were dipped and decorated with Monster High colours. Since Wilton candy melts don’t have that hot brightness I added food colouring for candy melts to brighten the colour.

Along with the eye shadow I made “nailpolish” with marshmellows and a gelee candy. I painted the large marshmellow with vanilla extract and rolled in coloured sugar. I attached the handle using a toothpick.

These are some Monster High sugar cookies. I traced the bows and eyes separately on wax paper. When they fully dried I glued them to the flooded cookie with royal icing.

All in all these sweets were a success.
