Yet another baseball cake!! What can I say my nephew really loves baseball. This year I went for a stadium.
I wish I had gotten pictures of how I stacked the cakes but unfortunately I did not. I used the grass tip for all the buttercream and fondant for the decorations. The “stands” are rice krispie treats and fondant. I used royal icing for my “glue” to get the sprinkles to stick. I think I turned out pretty good although I would spend a little more time perfecting the stadium next time.
Hope this gives someone a different idea 🙂
My nephew decided he wanted a multi-sport cake this year! This is what I came up with.
It is pretty straight forward!
My family loves carrot cake!! It’s requested regularly. I get bored of the plain look, so I tried something new this time. I love all the little carrots around the side! Super simple and cute!
We did a combined party this year for my step kids. They decided mutually on Starwars. It was really fun to plan, and was a great boy/girl party!
I painted these figures on MDF. It was fun and pretty easy.
We made Leia outfits and Jedi outfits for all the kids to wear, complete with pool noodle light sabers.
We played “the force” game. We just drilled holes in a frisbee attached rope and then put a ball on it and had the kids try to lift this all together.
We played storm trooper egg race. I just drew storm trooper’s faces on the eggs, the kids loved it.
For my stepkids 11th and 13th birthday we did a Starwars theme this year. I made the cake…this was the biggest, heaviest cake I’ve made yet.
This was my first time making fondant myself and it was easy and tasted great! Although I did not make the black fondant. Black fondant is a pain to tent.
For the Yoda head I used half a ball cake and used fondant over it. On the Chewy part I used a grass tip to make his fur (this tip is amazing for a lot of things). R2-D2 was pretty easy.
My stepkids loved it and I loved it! I’ll be posting their party soon! It was a really fun party to plan!
Well…It has been WAY to long since I have written a post. I got distracted by life, but realized I had a few projects I’ve been waiting to blog for a long time.
My nephew loves superheroes. So I decided to do a Captain American car redo for his present. I must say, I think it turned out great.
A few notes about what I did. I started by disassembling the car the best I could, I found this at goodwill for $15.oo. It kind of just snapped apart. I’m not going to lie, I was a little worried about it all fitting back together. Then I sanded this lightly. I think this is key although I would use a very light sand paper, I used a little rougher one and you could kind of see the scratch marks. I did use my silhouette to do the cutting, I used chipboard/old cereal boxes as the templates. We did a lot of touch up painting, because we had trouble with bleeding. I would definitely use vinyl next time :). I made the shield with a dog frisbee and cut out the shapes with my silhouette then modge podged over it.
Before it was kind of a mess 😦 Sad little car!
The front wheels didn’t come off so I covered them with plastic before spray painting.
My sweet hubby helping me!
Tape this with really good painters tape!!
