Something so simple but oh so good!

So, for those who read this, and don't know me, or my husband, my husband LOVES chocolate chip cookies. Honestly, my quest since we've been married has been to make him the ultimate cookie. The one that he talks about. Lucky for me I found a recipe a few weeks ago that he LOVED. It then gave me an idea. Maybe other people LOVE cookies. Maybe they aren't cake people? Why not make GIANT decorated cookies??? So, last night I tried my first GIANT cookie. While I don't have pictures, because I was doing it more to test, it's the one cookie that my husband is talking about. I'm not sure he'll ever want another cake again.

SO stay tuned because I'll soon be offering decorated cookies. They are 12" cookies, and come decorated with a trim and a message. Here are the details:

30th Birthday Cake

It was my husbands birthday this weekend and I wanted to do a cake for him. He LOVES chocolate chip cookies, and white cake with chocolate frosting. So I did just that, with a top layer of chocolate cake and vanilla frosting. I don't often get to eat my cakes so it was a treat to have some, and it was GOOD!

I'm so SUPER pleased with this cake. I did do something I said I would never do, but at the end of the day, it doesn't even bother me! A lady wanted a gender neutral cake for her granddaughters first birthday. Apparently she loves balls and balloons so she wanted that theme somehow carried through. I figured since the 1 year old would be eating some of this cake that I wanted to keep it simple using only buttercream. I also wanted to have some balloons "popping out" of the cake and didn't want to waste fondant for that. (I just wasn't charging enough to make them out of fondant) So...that's when I tapped back into my scrapbooking self, and called upon my lovely friend, Mr. Cricut. I asked him for some balloons and sure enough, he cut them out for me. I think it turned out really fun, and I'm very excited for the client to see it! I also added 3 more balloons on the top tier with the Happy Birthday greeting.

Thanks for looking!

Eiffel Tower

It really urks me when the picture in my head doesn't turn out in "cake"... Of course, I'm still learning and with every cake I learn something new. Which is why I still really enjoy doing cakes. At the end of the day, this cake is "cute" but it's my first cake for my new coworkers and can't help but feel it's a little below average. The cake is for a "man shower" we were having for a coworker who's getting married next month. He and his future wife are going to France for their honeymoon. I also made a few mini cupcakes and decorated with red, white and blue icing and mini flags of France... no pics of those.

At the end of the day the cake will taste ok... and that's all that really matters!

Joys of Teeting...

So I have 2 cakes tonight that are fairly straightforward and that I've been looking forward to all week, UNTIL Mia decided NOT to sleep last night. She was up from 1:30 until 6, then we 'dozed' off and on from 6-7. She wasn't grouchy, but she just wanted to play. She was SO talkative and LOUD. I guess when you're sleepy everything is perceived as louder, brighter, etc. Thankfully, the Eiffel Tower is in pieces in my freezer, waiting to be carved, the peak is completed out of chocolate and the Balloon cake should be fun and simple to do. Now I just need to dig deep and find my inner awaker, so that I don't fall a sleep doing these...

baking, baking, baking

Well the orders are just rushing in. I can't believe how in demand cakes are in the area. I'm getting 2-3 orders a day! The thing is, I work full time and do this as a hobby in my spare time. So I can't take all the orders, but I so wish I could. It's so hard saying no. Especially if it's for a childs birthday. Those are my favorite and I really don't want to turn any down!

Anyways... coming up in the next few days:

An eiffel tower...
My very first Carrot Cake...
A first birthday with balloons cake...
and a half and half, blue and brown cake.

That should keep me busy. Stay tuned for the photos!

Birthday - Mom

I was asked to do a "pretty" birthday cake for someone's mother. I've seen the idea of this cake around and I've been really wanting to try it. I also tried a new icing technique to make it as smooth as possible. I was really excited about it and it worked quite well! I can't wait to do another!

Royal icing flowers, buttercream frosting and chocolate fudge cake.

Uniqua - Take 2

So I recently took the jump to advertise on a local classifieds website. Well... People are dying for cake out there! Problem is, they're mostly huge orders. Wedding cakes, or events to serve MANY people. I'm just not equipped, or confident to take those orders quite yet. BUT I did get the following order. I was asked if I could do a Minie Mouse, Backyardigans or Toopie and Binou... I said I'd tackle any and just let me know what they wanted. They came back with a Uniqua cake, for 20 people. Since I did one before I wanted to change it up. So I decided to make most of the cake Uniqua. I think it turned out well and the Birthday girls Mom seemed happy. Hopefully the birthday girl really liked it!

It's fudge marble cake with buttercream frosting, styrofoam head and fondant eyes and antenna's.

Another chocolate cake...

When in doubt for a theme or design just add a crushed chocolate bar.... :) My favorite kind of cake is chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, that said I am swaying to the other side these days. You know, vanilla cake with chocolate frosting. Then again, I'm a fan of chocolate with chocolate too. Well years ago, we had a joke in my family. Mom knew my favorite cake but dad would always disagree and say HIS favorite, vanilla cake, with chocolate frosting. Since Wednesday was Dad's birthday and we had them over for supper I decided to make him his favorite. I think coffee crisp is one of his favorite chocolate bars too. So, I added it to the top and some vanilla cookie sticks dipped in chocolate for the sides. After a few bites of this cake, I could easily be swayed to change my favorite. TFL!

Ok... my new fave... well I think it's a tie between him and Lightening McQueen, but yeah, I love him. So much so, that I think it would hurt to see someone cut into him. And normally, I'm the one begging people to CUT THE CAKE. Not for this one. Maybe I should make myself one... Hmmm. Maybe I could make superhero library is slowly going to fill up with potential characters. How exciting!

Spiderman is a chocolate fudge cake with buttercream frosting. It's for a 3 year olds birthday. Hope he likes it!


If I was ever granted a do over wish, this would be the one. I mean it turned out ok... but to be honest, I know I could do better. A lot of things were against me for this cake, the main factor was time. In the end, it looks like 'their' plane, but it's not up to my standards. At least I know it will taste good!!! (Vanilla pound and chocolate fudge cake with buttercream frosting)
