I have a couple of cakes in the coming days. I keep meaning to make a peanut butter cake for Paul (My husband) to take to work but when I get home, play with Mia...I just get lazy and haven't made it. That said I have a GREAT idea for the cake. I want to make a 'box' of cupcakes. The box and the cupcakes will all be cake. I can see it in my mind, now I just need to execute it. :) I need to find some styrofoam board. Something like an inch thick... I'd like a sheet of it. Have you ever seen anything like that? I'm positive it must exist somewhere...I think. :)

So, cake number 2 is a cake from my "Cake Sampler" series. It's going to be a 2 tiered anniversary cake in white, pink and black. I'm really looking forward to it. This is going to be the strawberry yogurt with whipped cream cheese frosting. Yum. :) I start baking tonight and I'll also be making the flowers for the cake. :) Tomorrow is assembly.

I also have a cake for Monday. It too is from the Sampler series. It's an "I'm BACK" sort of cake. :) My friend is returning to work after 1 year on maternity leave. This is to ease herself back in. Cake is always a great tool for that. This is going to be a square cake covered in fondant flowers.

Stay tuned, there should be lot's of activity on here in the next few days!

Tootles Poodles!

(I have to share a little story... I'm always one to say Later gator. Well the other night I was chatting with a friend and she responded with Tootles Poodles... to some, it's just a saying, to me, it's the cutest farewell greeting I've EVER heard. That is SO going to be my 'sign off' from now on! Thanks Chris!!!!)

Thanks for looking!

Fun with Fondant

After a couple of failed attempts I FINALLY made a successful batch of fondant. I was so excited I wanted to cover everything with it. But that wasn't part of the order, so I just did what I was asked to do, which still let me play with it a fair amount.

I was asked for 2 cakes. 1 to match colors of the steamers she was going to use for the 'family' party and the other was the princess from the Disney Princess and the frog movie. I'm pleased with both.

Flowers are fondant, cake is marble with buttercream frosting.

(I'll post the Princess and the frog cake in a separate post so that I can tag it separately.)

Getting Busy...

I have a few things to say...

1. I'm really excited for those who were quick enough to be part of the 'kdfCREATIONS' samplers team. The cakes I have lined up are so exciting! Something for me to look forward to every week, from now until March!!!

2. If you did not contact me in time I'd like to give you a headstart for the next time I offer free sample cakes. You can contact me, and I will add your name to my list of those interested in receiving free sample cakes. Priority will be given to those who did not receive a free sample previously. OR you can click on the right to follow my blog. Any new posts I include will show up in your dashboard. I will announce new cake sample calls on my blog FIRST and will give my followers a 24 hour advantage over the 'list'. You have to be in my list of followers to take advantage of the 24 hour advantage.

3. Stay tuned in the next few days as I have 2 cakes for tomorrow and will be updating with pictures. Next week I have a tiered anniversary cake that I'm really looking forward to. I'm also going to be trying a few new techniques and playing with fondant, with my camera by my side of course, so I'll be sure to share my cake adventures with you.

Thanks so much for reading along and all of your kind words. I didn't realize how much of a following I had until I offered out free cake!

Have a great weekend!!!

Happy New Year

Wow. I was reminded to post on my blog over the weekend, but I had no idea I hadn't updated since before Christmas! Oops. So, let me officially say, Merry Christmas, and Happy 2010!!!

I did work on a cake last weekend, and I do have pictures but my precious kdfCREATIONS laptop was having surgery. I'm happy to report it pulled through surgery wonderfully and is now operating in tip top shape! Who knew that a good reformat could bring a laptop back to life? I promise to get those photos up tonight, as I must say, the cake I did was one of the most tempting I've done in a while.

That said...do I have some news for you! If you like FREE cake, you'll want to stay tuned!
