Here’s a not-so-recent project I did for a little one’s birthday!
The cake was red velvet with cream cheese buttercream (one of my personal faves!), and all decorations were done using fondant. My favourite parts are his little cheeks….and his little nose…and his tiny tie…and his mini socks….and his teeny little shoes…okay, I admit it: I am very indecisive!!
In other news, school is finally wrapping up (FOR GOOD!!!) and I’m looking forward to upcoming baking projects, and some new recipe posts! Stay tuned, mes amis!
In honor of the new Cinderella movie hitting theatres next week, here’s a quick look at a set of fondant cupcake toppers made for a Cinderella themed birthday party last year. Better late than never, right?
Cinderella was one of my favourite Disney cartoons growing up. I had quite a few sick days in my early years, and this flick was always the first to hit the VCR! (Until I got older and graduated to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, of course!)I may not have had a Princess Party in my childhood, but if I did, I think young Megan would have enjoyed both the look and the taste of these cupcakes!
Hi, my name is Megan and I’m an alcohol-themed-cake-aholic.
Okay, so I am not actually addicted to making alcohol bottle-inspired cakes; I have only made 3 so far, and in my defense, all of these cakes have been orders…I promise! But I will admit that I really really REALLY love making them.
My friend asked me to make a Jack Daniel’s Gentleman Jack whiskey cake for her boyfriend’s going away party last week, as he moved away to Vietnam on Friday. She’s going to be joining him in September but it still hasn’t hit me yet, so I’ll have to deal with that when the time comes! (JT, if you ever read this: DON’T LEAVE ME, HOMIE!)
This cake was a dark chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing and the labels were hand painted using food colouring. (My apologies if the writing is not straight or proportionate, but I may or may not have worked on these at 2 in the morning while watching the Olympics…I think that was the first and last time that I was actually awake to experience live coverage!)
Can’t wait to see what kind of booze I’ll get to create next time!
