Halloween Cake

Our friends had a little Halloween party tonight, followed by a Trunk-or-Treat for the kids. I decided to make a cake for the kids. It had all the works -- a witch, a dragon, a ghost, a frog (with a magic wand, book of spells, and a witch's hat). The cake itself had spiders on it and little ghoulish eyes. There was a little graveyard with bats and a tombstone. The tombstone had fresh dirt (dyed brown sugar) and a hand sticking up out of the grave.

Turned out cute!

Take a gander!!

Pumpkins Sitting on a Bale of Hay

I think the picture is pretty explanatory, given the title...but this cake has some pumpkins sitting on a bale of a hay. Linda Clemmer designed this cake. I just made my version of it. As usual it was a fun cake to make!

More to come this week...

Halloween Cakes

So I decided to make a Mummy cake for Halloween...and then I couldn't stop! I decided that Halloween is not complete without Mr. & Mrs. Frankenstein!

I'll be making more Halloween cakes this week. Don't worry -- I'll update you!

Happy Halloween!!

Fondant and Gumpaste Graduation Cake

Yeah!! I finished all of the Wilton Cake Courses! I truly had a wonderful time and learned so much! But it's hard always having to set time aside (when you have a baby). And it doesn't bother me that I won't be dragging all of my cake junk to and fro anymore.

Here is the final product!

Happy Birthday Kelli, Katelynn, & Parker

We had a group birthday party for Kelli Robison, Katelynn Newton and Parker Johnson. Katelynn and Parker were both born on Oct 8th and Kelli was born on October 12th. So here's their birthday cake!

I matched their cake to the plates and napkins as you can see! There was also a cute little candle on top of the cupcake...but I didn't take a picture with it on there. I'll see if I can get it from someone else. =o)

Campground Cake

One of the kids in my ward turned 8.. so I made this cake for his birthday/baptism. I had a lot of fun making it! It was good prepartion for all the cakes I'll be making for Parker's birthday. =o)

I posted a lot of pictures so that you can see the details!

The 4-Season's Cake

I'm currently in the 4th Wilton class, Fondant and Gumpaste. My teacher decided to have us make a cake and to decorate it, in 4th's, in order to practice lots of different techniques. While it was a great idea to help us learn, my personal taste couldn't handle this cake. But anyway, here's each side of the cake!


I made cupcakes for my friend's book party. She wanted to have a fall theme... so I made little pumpkin cupcakes! I think they turned out pretty cute!
