Baby Shower Cake

Last night's cake. I've done this one before, but this time it turned out a lot better! I was very happy with the results - just wish I could've done a better job taking the picture. I need to have a quick background I can use when I finish a cake, I guess. It would also help if my camera wasn't set to "video"! My kids had used it to take a million videos of our new kitten, and I didn't realize it was on that setting till the cake was gone - thankfully, Sarah knew how to save a still from the video!

WILD Animal Cupcakes!

Wow - I'm slow - but here are some fun animal cupcakes I made for my friend's daughter's 7th birthday - They were vanilla cupcakes with "princess (yes, that's what it's called)" flavored buttercream. I made the animals out of gumpaste, which I cut with my fabulous Cricket Cake machine, and then hand-painted with food-coloring. So fun to do!
