Minecraft Birthday Cake!

15 Sep

Hey guys!

How’s everyone doing? I’ve been quite busy this week with some birthday cakes I’ve been making for friends.  One of the cakes I did this week was a Minecraft cake!  I was asked to make a Minecraft themed cake, so I went with the actual Minecraft cake as my theme.  If you’re interested on how to make your own Minecraft cake, follow the cut for my tutorial!

Alpaca cupcakes for an Alpaca princess!

7 Aug

I keep telling myself I’ll post at least once a week, but then I end up having to travel or get so busy I forget, so I’m really determined to start posting more! So today I’m going to show you how to make super easy, and super cute cupcakes that look like Alpacas : ).

You’re probably wondering why I decided, out of all the animals out there, why I’d choose to make alpacas as my theme.  Well, it’s not because they’re my favorite animal (that spot in my heart is reserved for sloths), but they happen to be my best friend Laina’s (aka my Alpaca princess) favorite animal.   Her obsession with the cute fluffy animal runs as deep as mine for sloths (which is a lot of love, if I do say so), and her birthday was right around the corner.  Normally I’d make her a cake, but since we’d be out of town attending a convention over the weekend, I decided to make something more portable, and thus alpaca cupcakes were created.

Some of our birthday party attendants included a royal alpaca, and a not so happy money octopus.

Pokeball Birthday Cake

8 Jan

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone had a great holiday!  December was pretty crazy with all the birthdays and holidays, and January seems to be no different!  One of my new year’s resolution is to blog at least once a week, so we’ll be starting  the new year with a cute Pokemon themed birthday cake!  Brian, who is one of my best friends celebrated his birthday on Sunday January 6th, and as he’s an avid fan of Pokemon, so his wife (also one of my best friends) and I decided we’d make him a Pokeball cake!

Alright, let’s get started!

Chocolate Present Cake

26 Dec

Hello everyone!
Can you believe that Christmas has already passed us by!? I feel like the holidays were a whirlwind this year!  I unfortunately haven’t had any time to do much baking, which was unfortunate, since I love baking during the holidays, but as my brother’s birthday as well as my own + Christmas all happened during this month, there was hardly a free moment!

However, since it was my brother’s birthday as I mentioned earlier, I did make his birthday cake!  I decided to go with a present theme, since I’ve always wanted to make one.  It didn’t come out perfect (my frosting skills aren’t perfected yet), but I did think it came out pretty decent for my first try.  So, during this entry, I’ll be walking you through making a very simple present cake!

Let’s begin!
