Busy Week

Hi everyone, I am finally back. I have been so busy this week that I haven't had time to sit an post any of my latest projects. This was graduation week and I had 3 cakes and 25 cupcakes to bake and decorate. The cupcakes and the small cake were for my great friend Lauretta's son. My initial idea for the cake was to make a toll round cake and put the logo of his school on it, but it turns out that my friend was leaving on Friday and she was going to have the party for him on Sunday. I really didn't want a fondant cake to sit out for 3 days, so I decided to cover the cake with meringue buttercream and make a couple decorations in fondant, something really simple, as she requested. The cupcakes were chocolate with Kahlua and coffee buttercream, the buttercream was good but next time I will use espresso instead of strong coffee. This is the little cake. I was supposed use red for the letters, well mixing colors at 12 am is not a good idea. I thought the color was red but at day light it looked like dark pink, sorry!! My friend liked it any way, and since I was really tired, my husband miraculously had Thursday night off and my birthday is coming up my friend offered to babysit for a couple of hours . So, mua, when to the movies!!! I was sitting watching the movie and I couldn't believe it, I haven't gone to see a movie in..let's see...almost to years? Ummm, it sounds almost like Camilla's age.

These are the flowers that I made last week. I am really proud of this picture, I am really bad when I take pictures, they are dark all the time, I guess is because I take them at night and my camera is a little old. I might need a little help with that in the future.

I had some left over royal icing and I wanted to use it, so I decorated these cookies really quick. I have a project coming up and I started to brainstorms some ideas.
Thanks girls for reading my blog.
