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.
