These cupcakes were for a little girl's 7th birthday party. She wanted an ocean theme and settled on dolphins (her favorite), whales, turtles and fish. Half the cupcakes were yellow and the other half chocolate. I have to say, I think I'm partial to the turtles. Happy Birthday Sofia!

When I saw this cake in the November issue of Martha Stewart, I knew I had to
eat it make it! It's Martha's Salted Caramel Six Layer Chocolate Cake. It was worth all of the ingredients I had to buy and the time put into it.

Aged to Perfection
This cake was for my sister's mother-in-law. She gave me 2 choices for the theme, wine or coffee, and I went for the wine. It was a carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream frosting. Happy Birthday Mrs. O!
Welcome Baby Sam!

Two Peas in a Pod
I wasn't able to make it to my friend Sarah's shower because it was the same day as Colin's birthday party. So I made her this little cake for our little get together. If you haven't guessed already, she's expecting twins! Hence the two peas in a pod. This cake was lemon with raspberry and buttercream filling. Congrats Sarah & Ryan, we can't wait to meet the boys!

I repurposed the table scape from Colin's Wild Rumpus into a Halloween Extravaganza. I love Halloween but find that the actual celebration is a little short lived. The kids are only in their costumes for a couples hours, and at the ages my kids are they are done with the trick-or-treating after a dozen or fewer houses. So we decided to have a party with our friends and their children the Saturday before. I made Candy Corn Cupcakes and pumpkin & ghost cookies for the kids to decorate. We had a lot of fun... it might have to become a yearly tradition!
|Never knew a cookie could hold so many toppings!|
