Peach and Gold Baptism Cake

Wow! This was a heavy cake!! 
 This pleated fondant look is so pretty, but definitely the use of so much fondant for the pleat adds a lot of weigh to the cake. I made little fondant dots and attached them to the cake and then I air brush the entire 2nd tier in bright gold.
The fantasy sugar flower I made it days in advance using gumpaste, I then added a little touch of gold using a fine brush.

Sophia The First Birthday Cake and Cookies

I am loving this color palette, having 2 girls soft pastels are my colors.
I made this cake and cookies for a great client of mine, her little girl loves Sophia The First TV show and of course the party was around that theme.
This Sophia The First Birthday cake was inspired by Sophia's  dress and include a handmade white sugar tiara, all gumpaste, since fondant doesn't really dry hard enough to keep the
Princess tiara standing.  
I love how the Princess tiara turned out, I have a tutorial and  you can find it here

The cookie favors to match the Sophia The First theme included tiaras, dresses, the age of the little girl, birthday cake and pendants.

Dolphin and Surfboard Cookies

 Saying good bye to Summer is hard, we had the most amazing time this year and with my kids growing every year just keep getting better and better.

Next week is finally going back to school. I am happy, excited and nervous all at the same time. I am looking forward to go back to the school and work schedule /routine and I think the girls are ready too.  My little E is not to excited about her last year of Pre-K, hopefully she will get use to it pretty soon.

Any way, for this month's blog post for The Cookie Cutter Company I made some fun Dolphin and Surf board Cookies. I guess I am hanging into summer pretty bad with these.
I haven't been baking a lot this summer and I certainly haven't made royal icing in a while, so I used fondant as an easy way to decorate these dolphin and surfboard cookies

Back to School Theme cookies

Oh man! Summer is over! bittersweet. In a way I want to keep enjoying the nice weather and the fun outdoor time I am having with my girls, but honestly, I am ready for back to school.
The kids are excited, and daddy who has been taking care of the kids the entire Summer is looking forward for a little break.
Any way, back to school means meeting new teachers, that means cookies around here.
 I put together a fun cookie tutorial for The Cookie Cutter Company, stop by their page and have fun decorating these cookies.

Race Car Theme 1st Birthday Cake

I made this race car theme cake for a special little boy, I have been making cakes for this
family for many years now.
All the details of the cake matched the party invitation, I love the color combo of red, black and light blue.
The #1 cake topper and the flags are made with gumpaste for stability.
 Everything else is fondant.
