Baby Cooper’s Cookies

23 Jan

So my cousin Michael and his beautiful wife Krista has another child and it was a beautiful baby boy!  When I heard the news do you know what the first thing I thought was?  Cookies!  No that is not weird….well not for me.  I was going to do the typical boy colour of blue but then I decided to mix some yellow and green also.  Here are some of the designs I chose..













Thomas 2nd Birthday Cake

23 Jan

Here is a Thomas cake that I made the adorable Andrew on his 2nd birthday.  When I was first asked to do this cake I knew immediately that there would be a working toy train that would be involved.  Since the only track that I could find was in a circle I decided that the “cake” part would be the scenery for the cake.  Here is what I came up with.



I cleaned up the posts but of course I didn’t take a pic of that!



Those “rocks” are chocolate covered pebbles and the trees are ice cream cones covered in green buttercream.


Las Vegas Birthday Cake

23 Jan

Here is a birthday cake I made a couple of weeks ago for a 40th birthday.  I was asked to make a cake with dice and some cards.  Gambling/Las Vegas theme that included all the symbols of playing cards. (hearts, diamonds, spades and clubs)

Here are some pics…



The cake is covered in fondant and the dice and chips are made with colored fondant.  I mixed gum paste to the fondant for the cards so that they would harden and would be able to stand up on the cake.


Where have your been?

23 Jan

I know, I know…where have I been!

I can’t believe how fast time has been going.  I also can’t believe the last time I posted was in September.  The beginning of October was great because it was my cousins daughter Melissa’s birthday.  Guess who showed up?  Come on guess?

No. Guess again…

No. Guess again…

No. Guess again….

Okay, okay, you give up?

This is who showed up…


..with my daughter Sam.

It’s Belle!  It’s like she just stepped out of the movie…and turned into a real life person.  It would be pretty creepy if she stepped out of the movie as a cartoon.  The birthday party was  a blast and here are some of the treats that I made more Melissa and her friends.


Here are some donuts dipped in a light pink glaze.  Sorry about the quality of the pic.


I made some gumball necklaces.  There were really fun to make and the kids loved them.  I’ll do a tutorial at some point if anyone wants to know how they were made.


Here are some cookie dresses that I also made.  Each little girl got one in there goodie bags to take home.


And lastly I made some marshmallow pops.  I dipped them in pink candy melts and sprinkled them with pink sanding sugar.


..the pics because the sweets are long gone…
