my spot

I'm not by any means a professional, but I'm making an attempt to have some fun and my idea of fun is making cakes and decorating them, or painting canvas. I found a great website that is full of ideas and now I've started to try to make stuff for my friends and family. This is my little corner of the internet to post some pics of what I've done so far and those sites full of ideas for future things to do

for a good cause

The Boy Scouts that my kids belong to had a fundraising bake sale and my husband volunteered 2 dozen cookies and 2 dozen cupcakes from me :-) Since it was for a good cause, I was willing and able. I of course, got a little creative and really had fun with it - the packaging too! found some old ribbon and hot glue and voila!

I made lemon cupcakes with creamcheese summer berry epicure icing. The cookies are sugar cookies with royal icing - still playing with the flood technique. I found the pattern on line and they were quite easy to do.

Valentine's day

2nd attempt at Flood Icing on sugar cookies. Got some ideas for painting them with royal icing from a great site I really really liked how they turned out. And they tasted great!

Baby Cake

My receptionist at work had a beautiful little baby girl just a short while ago and while I'll be out of the office during the baby shower, I really really wanted to make a little baby girl cake. I found a similar baby lamb fondant topper online, and made it slightly bigger with a baby bottle and different baby blanket. The icing is royal and I don't think I like it for a cake - much for fun for cookies and piping. I have creamcheese icing inbetween the layers of white cake and it is melting the royal icing where it touches inbetween the 2 layers. I hope it lasts in the fridge at work a couple days!!!
