Under the Sea!

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!

Happy Thanksgiving!

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!

These cupcakes were to welcome little baby Sam to the world and give his Mom & Dad a sweet treat!

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!

Happy Halloween!

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!
