Donuts are the New Black

So I haven't been updating, and hadn't planned to due to being too busy, but I got a donut pan for Christmas, and well, these turned out pretty great. Also it was fun to get out the old camera again, rather than just taking phone pictures...





The recipe for these yummies is super easy and can be found here. Enjoy!

Soccer anyone?

Had a crazy last few weeks, where I had a deadline in my day job, plus this cake due at the same time! Also, with a set of 30 cupcakes, for a large birthday party. Tons of work, but got through it with no disasters. I hope they enjoy it! Time for a break!


Special thanks to the folks at Edible Images for the Spanish team logo!

Baby Shower cupcakes!

I won't lie to you, these toppers are totally inspired by/copied from a pin on my Pinterest board. Done by Lynlee's Petite Cakes, check out her work because she is a master at teeny tiny toppers!

I hope my toppers are somewhat comparable in cuteness levels.

Under Pressure

We artists put a lot of pressure on ourselves!
Take for instance, a gluten free cake for a boy's birthday, a boy who is only 3 years old but already knows what power tools are and how to use them.


Well I'd better make those power tools look as realistic as I possibly can! They'd better be a realistic size too!


C'mon they've got to be as real as possible! Just because I draw cartoons doesn't mean they have to look cartoony!


And that wood grain detail had better be perfect!!


*Sigh* Alas, the ego is never satisfied. But as long as the kids eating it are. It's cool. Really. I'll get over it... :P

Sketches to Final

For a while I've wanted to do a post showing my rough sketchs before the cake is done. I pretty much always do a sketch of some kind, just to have an idea of what I want. I'm not always the best at following it to a T, but I'm trying hard not to change things on the fly... I like being experimental and sometimes my ideas run away with me, lol. Here are a few examples!
