Cakes, cupcakes, and cake balls...oh my!

This weekend went something like this: 9 dozen cupcakes, 2 cakes, 52 cake balls, 424 fondant cutouts, and 7 batches of icing. Needless to say, I had a busy weekend!
Saturday was the 1st birthday party for my friend's daughter. It was a rubber ducky theme. I did a smash cake and strawberry cake balls that looked like bubbles. It turned out super cute.

Saturday was also my best friend's birthday. I made her a pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing.

Sunday I had to deliver cupcakes to a fundraiser for the movie The Marriage Squeeze. I made red velvet, chocolate, and lemon raspberry cupcakes with hearts and film reels on each one.

I made it through it and luckily I had today to recover.

Baby shower & new flavors

Last week I made these cupcakes for a baby shower at my Mom's work. The theme was pink and brown, so we did flowers and butterflies.

I also tried out some new icing flavors this week. I ordered some flavors from Bake it Pretty and haven't had a chance to try them out. I made amaretto, blackberry, mango, Bavarian cream, and coffee icing. I loved them all! If anyone wants to try out any of these flavors for their order, I need a little extra time to order the flavors. I look forward to doing some more experimenting with these flavors (maybe adding them to the cake pops).

White Trash Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my cousin's birthday. He was throwing a white trash party, so I thought a can of beer would be perfect :) This is the first time I've made a cake like this, and it was probably my most stressful cake. My first attempt to cover the cake in fondant didn't work. The second attempt worked, but after I added the label, the weight of the fondant made the cake sink in front. It looked like a beat-up can of beer by the end of the day :) I will definitely have to try a different technique next time.

Everybody's Favorite - Ducks!

This was a busy weekend. Friday I got to make these super cute little ducks. I have to say, they are my favorite to make. This time the colors were yellow, lime green and magenta.

I also made these cookies. I think they are so adorable. Almost too cute to eat! I'm probably going to make these for an upcoming birthday party I'm doing.

Birthday Cake

This is a last minute birthday cake I made for my aunt. I made everyone's favorite: lemon raspberry. I can tell you from experience, it was yummy :) You can kind of tell in the second picture that I sprayed it with a shimmer.
