For the Non-Twilight Fan

Not the typical Twilight cake, but it wasn't my idea, but I went with it anyway!!  I don't know if my son will be embarrassed that I did this kind of cake for him!  LOL!!!  My daughter and her hubby's cousin decided on the theme of the cake, but I had to put the dragon on there to represent my son.

My daughter Kami and Dee wrote this saying on the cake!  Worked for Mark!! 

This cake kind of fell in the middle, but it's a caramel cake with vanilla buttercream and marshmallow fondant.  I did take a tiny bite of it and it was yummy!!

For the Hunter

Okay...we're not into hunting...but when I was asked to do a cake for a 40th birthday, and they wanted something to do with hunting or camo,  I was excited to to something I hadn't done yet!!

This is a carrot cake with cream cheese icing and covered in fondant to look like birch tree bark.  I made the leaves with a fondant/gumpaste mix.  I made a mold from a real bullet and then made these bullets out of chocolate and painted them with edible luster dust.  The antlers were formed with wire and then dipped in white chocolate.  I hate to write on cakes because my writing is so terrible, but I think it worked for this cake!  I just used a brown luster dust to do this!  This cake was very fun to do!!

Sweet 16!!

Here's a simple cake that I did for a friends daughters 16th birthday.  It's a white, almond, sour cream cake with buttercream and marbled marshmallow fondant.  The bow and the numbers are made out of a fondant/gumpaste mix.

Kami's Birthday 2010

This past weekend was my daughter, Kami's....u-hum....29th again birthday!!  

When she bought a pair of leopard shoes last month, I knew I had to make a pair of shoes like it!!  I really did want to make a shopping cake with shopping bags, purse, shoes, nighty or a bra, pearls and makeup and have it say "Shopping....Take me away!"  on it but that didn't pan out, and besides, that would be way too much cake to deal with for us!  So here is what I ended up with.  Shopping bag, shoe box, shoes and one present.  I forgot to make the bow for the present!!  What else is new!!  Anyway, Kami and everyone else loved the cake!  That's what counts, right?!!! 

 Close up of the shoe.  I used my friend, Jacque Benson's shoe tutorial to make this shoe.

A Caramel Brule Cupcake

I have been wanting to try this combination cupcake for a long time!!  It was really easy and all that ate them, loved them!!  YEA!!!  

Start out with any basic white cake recipe, either from scratch or mix, substituting Coffee-Mate Creme Brule liquid for the liquid in your recipe.

 When your cupcakes are cool,  cut a hole in the middle of the cupcake with a sharp paring knife, cutting at an angle. 
Remove the plug.
I filled the cupcakes with Nestle's La Lechera Dulce de Leche caramel.
Then replace the plug and squish down to even out the top
 I made my icing with half butter and half shortening, some vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and of course powdered sugar.  For the liquid, I used the Creme Brule coffee creamer again, heating it up until very warm, but not boiling.  I don't have exact measurements because I didn't measure!  Sorry!!  I just mix it until it's light and fluffy!! 

I added the icing swirl and drizzled with caramel ice cream topping.
