I finally decided to put all my cakes in one place so I created this blog--mostly for me to record my fondant cake decorating journey.

Colorado Cake

My Sister in Law has some friends who are moving to Colorado and she wanted a little cake made for them as a little goodbye. My mind started thinking Colorado--mile high city, trees, snow, sun, skiing, Columbine State Flower--(yeah making that out of fondant definitely wasn't going to happen). I decided to go with a blue background to represent the blue skies, a little snow hill, and some snow capped trees with snow falling in between. I also wanted to try out my new alphabet fondant cutters--they were the biggest pain in the world to get out of the cutters--but I am glad to have those now for future cakes. My little cake supply collection is really starting to grow. The more stuff I get the faster and more convenient this cake decorating stuff goes! This time I started working on things the day before--had all the fondant colored and cut out the day before! Definitely a smart idea!

Still loving fondant cake decorating and I'm getting faster with each cake I do, smarter with each cake I do, and much more confident for sure!!

Easter Cupcakes

A little Easter fun in the form of cupcakes!  The kids loved them and I had a blast doing them.  But man, does it take a steady hand to place each of those little eyes and those little pink noses.  Had a blast making these little guys, though this was no quick little project! 
Wish I would have captured his face in this picture.  He was so excited and had been waiting all day to finally eat one!
Zach thoroughly enjoyed eating Mr. Bunny.  He ate the entire thing and ate some of the cupcake too!
