All the Buzz

Mike's cousin knows how to throw a party. Her daughter's first birthday was this past weekend, so you know she went all out. The theme was bees and she asked me to make some cupcakes. She likes things simple, so I frosted the cupcakes in a beehive shape and make little bee fondant toppers.

Here's the cupcakes in the stand. The sign says "Reecey's Sweetsies."

This Cake Makes No Sense

A co-worker has been reminding me for a few months that her birthday is in May and she likes unicorns, just in case I wanted to make her a cake. lol Well her birthday is finally here. She has a vase on her desk with dirt and grass in it and in the middle is a little unicorn figure. Here's a pic of it...

I thought it would be fun to make a cake of that. It has a unicorn and I think she'd get a kick out of it. Here's my version...

I couldn't find the same unicorn figure, but that's alright. I hope she likes it. I'll find out in a couple hours.

I love making silly cakes!

Dexter Table Reading

A former co-worker emailed me last week with the most amazing opportunity! His friend works production on Dexter and she was looking to order some cupcakes for the first table reading for season 6. My former co-worker had shown her the Dexter cupcakes I had made before and she wanted me to make them. Ahhhhhhhhhh! *dies* Dexter is one of my favorite shows, so I was beyond excited.

So I made "blood" splatted cupcakes with knife, syringe and Dexter logo toppers. And a few of the cupcakes spelled out "Season 6."

I delivered these yesterday to the studio. I got to walk by the set and wardrobe. Eek! And the table reading room had scripts for the first episode of season 6 on the table. I wanted to peek so bad!! The cast was supposed to arrive an hour later, so I didn't get to meet any of them. :/ Buuuut the production lady said they're probably going to ask me to make the wrap party cake! Ahhhhhh! *dies again* I told the lady I hope they enjoy the cupcakes and she said "Oh, they're gonna love them. Michael C. Hall is gonna eat those cupcakes. The whole cast is!" *dies again*

Best cupcake/cake order ever.

Baby Heffalump

My lovely friend Kandy had her baby shower a couple weeks ago. It was Heffalump themed and the colors were purple and turquoise.

I made a Heffalump topper out of fondant and had purple flowers and turquoise butterflies cascading down.

Cow? Horse?

There's a cafe inside of my work. Snazzy, I know. The manager of the cafe asked me a couple weeks ago to make a horse cake for his girlfriend. I was hesitant at first because I thought he was going to want a realistic, 3D cake. I wasn't in a mood to make a cake that was going to cause a lot of frustration. haha But after talking to him about it, he wanted a more cartoon horse.

This was the picture he showed me:

All he asked was that it have a saddle with the number 21 on it. Here's what I made:

This horse could easily pass as cow. lol Either way, I think it's cute. :)
