Unicorns and Rainbows…in CAKE of course!

Every Girl’s Dream   Rainbows, Unicorns, Hearts and Bows, oh my. I recently made a cake for a 5th birthday. The theme was Unicorns.

I made the inside of the cake a rainbow [...]

AIR Jordan 3 Retro Shoe Cake

Well it’s final four weekend and my cake for the week was an AIR Jordan 3 Retro shoe sitting on it’s box.  This was the first time I’ve made a shoe and to date definitely one of my coolest cakes.  I had so much fun working on it and wish I had more time to add even more detail and measure instead of eyeball.  I was scared that [...]

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 [...]

What’s For Dinner?

So as part of our budgeting process, my job is to bring down our grocery costs.  I’ve been couponing for a little over a year now and do pretty good.  I usually save between 12 and 30%.  I do strive to be better, but need to put in the time coupon hunting.  I did find that one good way to cut costs was to make a dinner menu for two weeks at [...]

Baby showers bring…baby shower cakes, what else…
