Holy Cake, Batman!

This is a Batman cake I recently worked on for my neighbor's grandson. I made a yellow cake with butter cream filling and icing. The Batman logo and the little buildings were made out of fondant. And for your entertainment check out some classic Batman and Robin quotes!

A Royal Celebration {Princess Party}

So last month it was my daughter's turn to celebrate her birthday. She was beyond excited about having a princess party -you know how it's with little kids, they start thinking about their next birthday as soon as the current one is over LOL!
While the kids were doing gymnastics, I had a little bit of time to get set up... I made the birthday banner with my friend's cricut machine. I found the butterflies on sale at Market Street. I didn't take a good picture of it but those are cake pops in the far right corner. This was my 3rd attempt and by far my best one -by then I had received Bakerella's Cake Pops Book and it made a huge difference on my results.
For the sugar cookies, I used Cookie Craft's recipe. Super easy and yummy as well...
 This was the first time I decorated a cake. The top layer is chocolate with a little orange flavor and the bottom layer is strawberry. I used Paula Dean's recipe and let me tell you it's delicious!
 I got the cake toppers from the TomkatStudio.
 And the guest of honor :D... I got her top here.

Elmo's World!

My sweet son turned 2 this last summer and the theme for his birthday party was Elmo. At the time, just a few months ago, it was his favorite character and now he's all about Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse... Oh well! As you can see on my links I'm a big fan of Bakerella and TomKat Studio which provided tons of inspiration for this fun birthday celebration. My sweet friend Luisa created the cake and it was delicious! Enjoy the pictures.

 My First attempt at Elmo's cake balls :(... LOL!
