"Jake and the Neverland Pirates" cupcakes

I have never heard of this cartoon but it looks really cute. I think cupcakes with accents on it like this take me longer than a cake. I want to say I spent at least 8 hours (for 50 cupcakes) putting the fondant pieces together. The best part and what makes it all worth it is topping a cupcake off with it's fondant piece. Way fun!

Dino Cake

For my little nephew. All he wanted on his cake was a volcano and a red t-rex. He loved it!

Dragonfly and Butterfly cake

Quite honestly, I was pretty sure I was going to butcher this cake. Thankfully, it all came together. Grateful for all the cake tools they are coming up with. Makes it easier to come up with stuff (and fix things when you realize your messing up!).

Black damask with red bow

This compliments the invite. The invite was all black Damask with a plain white wedding dress in the middle with a red ribbon around the waist. All of my previous damask cakes were great practice for this one!

Pink and white Zebra

I do the bow standing up most of the time so it was fun to do it this way. Zebra print is another design I never tire of. Super fun cake for this gal-suited her perfectly!

Hawaiian Luau cake for twins!

The best part about this cake was meeting the two little boys. They are just so dang cute-personality and all! I think this was my biggest birthday order to date. 2 tier, 2 smash, 24 cupcakes. I guess that happens when you have to do double. When the boys were first born, they had to color coordinate them to tell them apart. We made sure to identify them on the cake in their given color. I just love that! Sea turtles are a big thing to this family as well so we sea turtle'd it up! I had a great time with this one!

CTR Cake and cupcakes

Despite your religious preference, "Choosing The Right" is always a good thing! I love this acronym/symbol and everything it stands for. The fact that it is also green-the color in which I am slightly obsessed with-makes it even more special for me. This cake was to celebrate the birthdays of a class of kids turning 8 this year. I had so much fun making the little shields for the cupcakes! The cake was for the party and cupcakes to send home. What an awesome teacher! Those kids are lucky to have her!
