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.

Mexican Fiesta Theme Cake

 
 Happy Wednesday!
Wow, I haven't been around in so long. Times goes by so fast and I have being spending my free days and time with my girls. This Summer has been fantastic, lots of little trips, fun play dates with new friends and doing a lot of activities with the girls.
 
Right now I am taking some time off from baking, the last few months were so busy with lots of orders that I really needed some time off to recharge.
 
I have made such a fun cakes , lots of colors and different designs.
 
For this post I am sharing this fun and colorful Mexican Fiesta Theme cake complete with a cake topper piñata.
 
The piñata was made using rice crispy treats and fondant, all the other decorations were a combination of fondant and gumpaste.

 
This Mexican man was one of my favorite details on the cake, I am assuming he had way too much tequila and was taking a nap!

 
Here is the complete cake ! Hope you like it!

Nautical/Mini Crab theme birthday cake

 
What a fun cake was this one to make! I have said it before, I love making colorful cakes, and this is a color palette that I adore.
I have made a similar cake before, just smaller, and my client wanted something similar, just bigger. Well, bigger is always better. 

 
The details on the cake were made with a mix of fondant and tylose to make them a little extra firm, but not too hard.
I made the boat with gumpaste days in advance the delivery date to make sure it was going to be completely dry the day I need it.
I like using candy melts to attach big cake toppers to my cakes.

  This is the smash cake I made for the little boy.

Baby Girl (butt) Baby Shower Cake

 
Well, I jumped on the wagon of  the blogger burned out syndrome !!! Trying to get my motivation back to show you all the cute cakes and cookies I have made in the past month.
 
Any way, this cute cake was for one of my little girl's former daycare teacher. She is having a little girl and wanted to have a baby girl butt cake so bad...LOL so dream come true, here it is.
 
What a simple cake to make, the butt is actually made of rice crispy treats, but easily can be made out of cake. Then I added lots of ruffles to  form the dress.
 The feet and legs were made using modeling chocolate.
