Daisy Fever

Hi all!!

I am back.  I've been finishing up some fondant work and boy oh boy.....I think I love fondant now.  Now, I know what you're thinking:  Erin!!  Fondant does NOT taste good!  I know, I know.  However, the finished product is just so great!  I'm including a picture of my final project from class tonight.  Also, I've been making some gum paste flowers....cupcakes to follow with those this week.  In the spirit of spring and summer, I hope you enjoy the "daisy cake" as much as I enjoyed making it!

Until next time....Making Memories, One Cake at a Time!  :)

Mickey Mouse!

This is the cake I baked for my nephew's 2nd birthday party!  12 hours later, I was getting antsy to finish, so I don't think it looks as perfect as I'd like, but I still think it came out great!!!  And was just as tasty and delish with the fresh strawberry infused whipped cream!  :)

Tonight was my first gum paste and fondant class.  I will be uploading the bow I made.  The other projects won't be completed until next week.

Until next time....making memories, one cake at a time!  :)

And so it continues....

Hi everyone,

I have just finished my first Mickey Mouse Cake.  I used my homemade cake recipe.  I need to start experimenting some more,  It was not the easiest to fill this half sheet cake, but it all worked out.  It's filled with fresh strawberry whipped cream.  I will post pictures a bit later (camera packed for birthday party).

Coming up next aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare, that's right, CAKE POPS!!!  I am going to make strawberry cake/frosting and then white candy melts! YUUMMY.  The true test will be what my co-workers think.

The research still continues for bakery options, although I'm certain it'll be a while before that comes to fruition.

In the meantime, enjoy the pictures!  :)

Hi Everyone...

I am really excited that I have a few followers already!  I hope to showcase what I am capable of doing and what I am currently learning in my cake decorating endeavors!  I have dreams of opening my own bakery, even if the mister keeps trying to bring me off my floating cloud.  NO FEAR, THOUGH!!  Please follow along and let me know what you think.  Oh yes...I'm still in the market for a crafty sign off!  Until next time.....
