Cookie Monster Cupcakes


These Cookie Monster Cupcakes were for Logan's first birthday! We had a small birthday party with all four of his grandparents. The cupcakes are chocolate with almond buttercream icing. The eyes are mini Peppermint Patties with black icing and the cookies are mini Chips Ahoy. Logan had a great time at his first birthday party and we had a great time celebrating with him! It's hard to believe he turned one today:)

Autumn



This cake is for three October birthdays in the Budget Office at UNT. The request was for a fall cake, so I thought leaves would be fun to make and give a nice autumn look. I learned last week how to make these leaves out of fondant. They are dusted with gold pearl dust.

Baseball Cake




This is a birthday cake for a 12-year-old boy who loves baseball. The cake is French Vanilla with buttercream icing. The dirt is made from Cinnamon Toast Crunch crushed in a blender. The home plate and bases are made from vanilla candy coating, melted, refrigerated, then cut with a knife into the shape of bases. The grass is made from green buttercream icing with a star tip. Everything on this cake is edible! This cake was really fun to make!
