Congratulations Emi!

A replica of a baby shower cake I saw on Flickr from Andrea's SweetCakes, I loved this cake.

The bottom tier is sweet tea with lemon curd filling and the top is lemon cake with blackberry frosting. Both cakes are frosted with a limoncello buttercream.

Ruffle Cake

From "My Sweet and Saucy" you tube tutorial (*sigh* - I do LOVE her)....This is a lemon cake with blackberry SMBC filling and lemon/limoncello frosting.

Gardener/Math Teacher

This cake is really alot more impressive than the photo....since I suck at photography....It's for a friend who wanted a cake for his dad's 65th birthday. Steve is a math teacher and a gardener. I took ALOT of ideas from the very talented "Icing on the Cake" from flickr and this is what I came up with.

The cake is lemon with raspberry swiss meringue filling and frosted with cream cheese frosting. The equation on the chalkboard (supposedly, per my son) equals 65.

Princess and the Frog

Wild cat cupcakes

Just a variety of wildcat toppers. I'm liking the idea of putting the fondant toppers on cookies...kinda adds a little something.

It's not hot in my area right now, but the humidity is up...I wouldn't have noticed except my fondant cats are sticky.....

First Birthday Dinosaur cake and cupcakes...

This is a copy of Bella Cupcakes copy of Debbie Brown's dinosaur (whew....). My big dinosaur is made out of rice krispie treats as it has to be in the car for a distance. The cupcake toppers are actually colored sugar cookies decorated with fondant. I made a small smash cake dinosaur also.
