Emoji Birthday





A very lovable, talented, adventurous and awesome niece of mine turned 12 recently... The cake order was Emoji with a twist. She did her own independent research and came across these little beauties from Anne Reardon's Website. Anne made her emoji's out of cheesecake- So this Aunt ventured outside of her comfort zone and made mini cheesecakes to accompany the Marble cake. Taking a poll of the 8-12 Year Olds that I know- they all didn't know what Marble cake was at first...  Interesting right?  Had to explain it was chocolate and vanilla swirled together...   Learn something new every day...

 
Covering the cake...

Emoji Work Space... Lots of cutting happening.


All the Emjoi pieces ready to go on top of their cheese cakes...

The poop turned out really cute... Who would have thought I would ever write that line...

Reigning Princess

In celebration of her first full year of reign over her kingdom, Princess Nora celebrated with her adoring public enjoying a cupcake dress cake and a custom made celebration cupcake smash cake...

 Her adoring public

Not sure you can get much cutter then this.... Unless you are my niece or nephew of course...
Her dress is made from her mom's wedding dress along with the green accents of one of her best friend's bridesmaid dress.  Nora's amazing mom had shoes made out of her other best friend's bridesmaid dress...  So awesome!

Good and Evil Disney Birthday





We all have a little good and evil in us...   Aurora and Maleficent were on tap to help celebrate a caring, lovable, genuine and funny 12 year old.  Thanks to this blog for the instructions and templates- This saved me a ton of time!   Just a note- The figurines are plastic and the backdrop is printed on paper... I have my limits- I'm not THAT good... Here are some pics of the cake coming together...










Ended the night with a beautiful Sunset hanging out with amazing friends and family... Doesn't get much better then that...
Except if you are the birthday girl and you get some great presents! :)

Baby llama

It was a llama baby shower today!  I had  fun trying to figure out how to draw a llama :)  I used the picture from the invite to make royal icing accents for the cake and cookies. It was a great afternoon with a lovely group of amazing women- just what I needed... Ready to take on the week!

Christmas Cookies 2015

I had some helpers in the Kitchen this year... Both in person and Via the internet.... Instead of laboring over sugar cookies- I took a page from Pinterest and bought the seasonal White Chocolate Covered Oreo's .  They were the perfect canvas for our creations...  I used some of these links for inspiration- Thanks!   Cookie Snow Globes, Oreo Mickey's and had some fun helpers in the kitchen to make it all the more fun!  Thanks Kids- You did a great job!!!









  MUCH Concentration is needed....

Peace and Love in The New Year!

Lil Pumpkin


My cousins Sweet Lil' Pumpkin turned one and we had a great family gathering to celebrate. There were many loving detail including pictures of the birthday girl all throughout the room and lots of cute pumpkins and orange decorations. My cousin made a great story board for her first year and it matched beautifully with the pumpkin themed cake!  I love it when a good plan comes together!
Great job Jess! The party was a great success. It is always good to see families together, kids playing and everyone smiling...



 



Behind the scenes look....

 All of the "Pieces" ready to dry overnight...  I made way too many pendants and circles... I just kept going and going when I clearly didn't need this many...



I was thankful for a safe transport and cake delivery... No cake wrecks! Yeah!
