Blue Cars Cake

My son was insistent that he have a blue car cake for his birthday. He's a huge fan of Cars, so I went off one of his cars he had in his collection. I had to do the logo on the hood because that's what's on the hood of the winning car. I originally put a 3 on the car because my mommy brain went back to last years cake with a 3 on it, plus this one has both the 3 and the 4 on it, so I got confused. Fortunately frosting can be erased easily and I was able to fix the number on it before the party.

Kare 11 tour cupcakes

I was lucky enough to have a tour of the Kare 11 studio thanks to winning a contest. Naturally I brought some treats for the staff at the studio.

I brought 40 cupcakes and hope it was enough for the 2 shifts that were there that day.

Here's a closeup of the NBC Peacock. It took more time to mix all the colors than it took to create the peacock.

I could only do the 11 from the Kare 11 logo on the cupcakes. There's only so much room on cupcakes.

I was going to have a party and sunflowers were appropriate for the event. I found the way to make these on Very easy, only 2 tips for the flowers. I made them completely out of buttercream icing instead of the royal icing they called for.

Oh Mario!

I had a request to make a Mario cake for someone's birthday and this is what I came up with. Since I grew up with the old school Mario, that's how I will always remember him. The characters are 3-d piped figures. I used fondant to create the green base.

I placed blocks on the sides for more of an impact.

A Winter Tree

I got a new pan after Christmas and had to try it out. Fortunately I don't have to make a Christmas Tree from it; I can simply make it into a snowy tree. I used brownie mix in it and made mint frosting to cover it. I used edible sparkles to make it look more snowy.

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate the holiday! My husband wanted to bring something to the people he works with tomorrow. Cupcakes are always an easy way to feed many people cake without having to bring a knife.

I decided on two different holiday creations, Holly and

Happy Birthday Princess

My daughter is turning 5 and asked for princess cupcakes. These are chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. The skirts are the cupcakes and the bodies are made of frosting. The brown frosting was made by adding cocoa creating chocolate frosting. My daughter will love them because she usually just eats the frosting off the cake.
