DIY Earring Holder

I made this a few years ago so I don’t have a step by step, but it’s VERY EASY!  All you need is an empty frame, screen and hot glue.  I used an old frame I had, just took out the glass.  You can do the same, or find one at a thrift store, or online.  The screen I picked up at Lowes, but you can get that a lot of places too.  I [...]

I recently re-design my cake website at www.bakedindy.com I am a hobbyist cake decorator. I do hope to some day go professional, but for now it’s just a little side job out of my home.

Giant Ruler Growth Chart – DIY

So when we moved into our house in the garage on the wall is where the family before us marked the growth of their children.  When re-painting the garage, it gave me a sad feeling that the history on the wall was about to disappear forever.   It made me hope that they had gotten some good photos of it to save forever. A few months later, our [...]

Yee Haw…Look Who’s One!

I was recently hired to do a cowboy themed 1st birthday cake.  I sent several ideas with quotes to the customer and she picked a cow print with a cowboy hat on top.  The had turned out a little bigger than I had planned, but other than that, I think it turned out pretty good.  I put his name and a 1 from gumpaste.  The cake is covered in [...]
