My friend got engaged and I want to make her a little gift basket. So I put a few things together and knew I wanted to make her some special cookies. The little stick people are my favorite. I use these little sugar pearls for the engagement ring.
This was my first real experience with writing on cookies with royal icing. I also got this tool and I can’t believe I did cookies without this magic little tool. I also love Americolor color Soft Gel Paste it is what I use for cookies and cakes, the colors are so great and vibrant!
What are you favorite royal icing tools?
These were super fun and easy! I used square cookie cutters and royal icing, the sprinkles were awesome to make the “people”.
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!
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!
I have made A LOT of cupcakes. This is by far one of my favorites! Everyone loved them and I am so excited to make them for Thanksgiving (so is my husband:))
I got the recipe from Life, Love & Sugar. The only modification I made was that I used store bought caramel and melted it down with a little milk, I was in a bit of a time crunch and did’t have time to mess with making it from scratch, yes I know it’s not that hard 🙂 I just chose to do this because I was in hurry!
You all should make these!! SOO delicious!
