So I sold my second cake last Friday! Here are a few pics so you can check it out. He turned out sooo cute. The cake was devil's food and the icing was homemade chocolate buttercream. All the figures and polka dots are made of fondant and gumpaste. Now I'm busy planning my Christmas cakes and trying to find the time to get everything done! Wish me luck -♥

So I joined http://www.cakecentral.com/ today. What an awesome site, great tips and advice, so many questions that I've had, I've already found the answers to on their great forums. Very addicting site, with great ideas and great people. So I uploaded my little penguin to share with everyone, and got such an awesome welcome and response! They loved him! He made it to "the most saved cake photos today", I'm so proud, and honored, Thanks so much guys for loving him as much as i do. ♥
I found the cutest thing the other day! My new work outfit, lol, for my baking anyways! These aprons from www.flirtyaprons.com are so adorable! I want all of them! The cupcake one is my favorite. This one is definitely going on my Christmas list... ♥

I am so proud of my newest little creation! I made him last night and now I'm so excited about what kind of cake to put him on. He turned out way better than i could have ever hoped. What a cutie! Also, I've been practicing with homemade buttercream icing as well as homemade chocolate buttercream icing. Which both turned out delicious... Can't wait to make my next cake.
My first batch of Cake It or Leave It CuppieCakes! These are the first cupcakes I've ever made in my whole life... and i must say they turned out awesome. It all started with my first attempt at fondant roses. After I made a couple roses, I was hooked and wanted to make more and more of them! But now, I needed something to put them on, and cupcakes turned out to be perfect. I loved the variety of colors and sizes. Definitely more CuppieCakes to come very soon...
I wanted to include a post of some of the cakes i've made recently...
This is my third cake, practicing daisies. This is my fourth cake, a test run for a future cake. This is my fifth cake for Thanksgiving, and that brings us up to date.
So there's a new love in my life... and it's Cake Decorating! Who would have thought it? Not me... that's for sure, but i love it! Has there ever been something that comes so naturally to you that you felt like you were just meant to do it? That's the way I feel about my cakes. I will mainly specialize in fondant and gum paste decorations, but I plan on learning it all. I'm still learning and It's definitely a work in progress but i wanted a place to share my creations with my family and friends. I hope you all enjoy...
