Mermaid Cake

I made this mermaid cake for a second birthday. I think the "doll cakes" using the Wilton Wonder Mold pan turn out so great - I remember having one for a birthday when I was a child. I just love the look of the waves on the doll cake, the seashells, the mermaid's all came together so perfectly! The cupcakes were made to match the cake. I made chocolate for the tops of the cupcakes in the shape of seashells to go with the theme. Aside from the chocolate on the cupcakes and the doll body - the cake and cupcakes are all decorated with buttercream.

Free Cakes for Kids

A local mommy/cake decorator friend, Emily, and I chatted about starting a program to provide free cakes for kids in the area who would not otherwise have a birthday cake for themselves. Once a month we decorate cakes and take them to a group of kids who meet at a local church - it is called the F.R.O.G. program.

Here are some of the cakes I've made for these kids!

Fall and Halloween Fun

Pumpkin patch cake for a fall birthday. I molded the pumpkins out of chocolate, and the haystacks are butterscotch covered with frosting. I used the grass tip for the top of the cake and the bottom border, and pretzels to form a fence around the sides.

Mummy-riffic cupcakes! Spooky! Chocolate cupcakes with white buttercream icing and orange eyes. Boo!

Spooktastic cupcakes for Halloween....Monsters, Mummies, Spiderwebs and Pumpkins (oh my!) All buttercream icing.
