Baking photos

It’s been awhile since I posted, but that doesn’t mean I’m not crafting in some way…. just super busy!!  So, I am just adding a few photos of some baking that was done recently.


Another quick cake post.

Fun pink and black cheetah (or leopard) print cake. 2 layer 9″ round, red velvet with cream cheese icing, covered with fondant. I painted the print on, using americolor gel coloring mixed with a tad bit of vodka. I used my “funky” font tappits for my lettering.  They worked really well!!  Now that I know they do work, I might have to order another font 🙂 


Minecraft Ghast Cake

I am so behind on my summer postings!!!  Just a quick little post with a photo. My grandson, who turned 10, requested a “ghast” cake. I had no clue what this was, but asked my kids, who knew right away. They got onto minecraft and found a ghast for me, so I could see what I was getting myself into.  Anyway, if you don’t know, just google  “ghast” and you will probably find more information than you wanted to know, LOL!!

So here it is, in all it’s depressed glory, floating around in the Nether.


Thanks for stopping by and have a super sunny day!  Hopefully I will get caught up with all my   posts for all the cute clothes I have been testing out for PDF pattern designers!

Minecraft Cake!


Summer baking and decorating

Busy summer here, with kids, projects and activities. I have made a few cakes this summer, so instead of posting each individually, I am going to post photos with a brief description.

Sailor Bear Birthday Cake

I was asked to make a similar cake seen at for a 1yr old’s birthday, and this is my version.


It was fun, I made a mold for the shells and little fish and then used fondant in the molds. I painted the shells and used brown sugar for the sand. The 2 tiered cake is covered with fondant, but the smash cake for the baby is buttercream, cause we wanted him to get nice and messy, and that just would not happen with a fondant covered cake! 



Here is a close up of the boat and bear, both made from fondant with some tylose added.
