Tool box cake with tool cookies

This cake was super fun to do. My brother is a mechanic and I thought it would be cute to do a tool box cake. Again, I learned tons about fondant with this cake and feel I am getting a little better at it. The tools are sugar cookies that I created stencils for and carved out in the cookie dough.

Cookie Letters

I loved doing these!! I have always wanted to try this style of sugar cookie with the flooded icing method. Not only did they turn out pretty cute but they tasted good too. I should've done the "&" symbol to separate the names but I was in a hurry. TJ is my brother and Kevin is his friend and their birthdays are a day a part so they celebrated together.

Soccer Birthday

This was the second cake I had done for the day so I was getting tired but it was a soccer theme for one of my brothers friends. He's an adult so I had to come up with something that wasn't too childish. It was the first time I've done a bow and I learned a lot with this one. I tested out a chocolate cake recipe and it seemed to be a hit.
