Flower Cake

Made this flower cake for my daughters Birthday party. The flowers were made out of fondant. I used a fondant flower form that I bought and then added the little yellow centers. Kind of time consuming but I like how they turned out!

These were fun and easy. Buy card stock in any color you'd like your flower. If you are making a forget me not you will want blue. Cut out a petal and trace out five petals. Cut out.

Next I used a glue gun and glued the end together on all five petals. Then you glue three of the petals together. The last two need to be glued on each side of the three. Hope you can see that in the picture.

I then added a yellow circle made out of card stock. A bunch of these makes cute decorations for any party!

Shoe Box Cake

Made this shoe box cake for my cute friend Teresa. She loves high heel shoes as much as I do so I thought this cake seemed fitting. Everything is edible except the beads. The cake was red velvet with butter cream frosting.This is the first and probably last shoe box cake I will do. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. The finished product is always fun though!

Bunny Cake

Here is my Bunny Cake I made for Easter. Every time I am making a cake I swear that I will never do it again but then I do and here it is. I love seeing the finished product I just stress myself out the whole time I am making the cake. I guess we will see if this is the last.
