we've got ears...say Cheers!

My youngest daughter, Samaria, loves Mickey Mouse.  She just about lost her mind when we were at Disney World last year!  For her 3rd birthday last month, I made her a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake.

The Mickey head was made a few days ahead to give it time to dry.  It's all fondant...since it was rolled out pretty thin, I didn't need to add any tylose powder to get it to stiffen out.

I made a  big number '3' to add in the middle of the Mickey head but I totally forgot to add it!  :(

Since the back of the cake was bare, I added a few daisy flowers and clouds.

The girls had an awesome time at Creative Play, where we had the party.  Their play area was awesome and their staff was so helpful and friendly! 

Big ups to Pinterest and to Big Fat Cook for all the cake ideas!  Thanks to my girl Jobee for taking the pics too!  (I'm a horrible mom!  I don't even take photos at my own kid's birthday party!)

Oh and guess what's coming up in a few months?  I can't wait!!!

check them out!

i suck...

Yes that's right...I suck.  :-(
I'm not very good with keeping up with this blog.
I started this blog to showcase my cake skills and hopefully gain some business.
Well the good news is...business has been pretty steady. 
Bad news is...I've been so busy, I haven't been able to keep up with my blog.

Here are a few of the confections I've made the past few months...

Red velvet Iphone cake with cream cheese frosting
I absolutely enjoyed making this cake! 
All app icons are hand-carved and handpainted by moi!

Almond cowboy cake with almond buttercream icing

Red velvet cake with cream cheese icing

NY Giants birthday/Christmas cake.
Another red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting...it's such a popular flavour! 
I know...my camera isn't very good.  I definitely need to invest in a new camera.

This cake was made for my co-worker who always made 'hairy butt jokes'...
Vanilla cake with chocolate frosting

That's all I got for now, folks.
More to come in the next few days!
