Another Baby Shower!

 Baby shower cake
 A 6" & 10" vaniila cake with whipped strawberry filling.  Buttercream iced and covered with the amazing Satin Ice fondant!  I love this stuff!  It is defiantly like satin! 3 smaller butterflies and the lettering were done with my Cake Cricket

 Cupcakes were RED VELVET!  Yummy!!  I did fill the cupcakes with cream cheese icing as well as topped them with it!  I do love these ,bit pricey, but adorable pink cups.  I think I will be using these more!
Tiny white dots added were made with fondant and cut from a #12 tip.

Colorado Cowboy!

This is a birthday cake.
The board is covered with fondant to look like a wood floor.
All items decorating this cake are edible! The entire cowboy hat is made from gumpaste, shading with the airgun is what really made this hat look real.
Small copper sprayed buttons around the band were added after the hat dried. The belt and the rope are fondant and the buckle is gumpaste. I tried to get the 6" to look like denim and the 10" to seem like leather. I used clipart to cutout the cowboy boots that decorated the lower cake! This was a fun cake and was enjoyed by the Colorado Cowboy himself! (White cake with whiped strawberry filling)

She is 2!

My Sweet Grand daughter turns 2!!
She is a little artist so her mommy thought a cake with paintbrushes
(i know they look a bit like candles)
and cupcakes on a painter's pallet represent that!
Oh how I love being Nana!
