Making a cake

I had this cake I was making and I was really excited about the idea. Mostly because I didn't borrow the idea, and that doesn't happen very often. I also wanted to play around taking pictures with my new lens. So here is a little picture story of my latest cake :)

Just a devil's food cake with buttercream frosting

I had to show you some of the mess

I didn't take pictures of the mess from making the fondant. But here are all the fondant pieces

I used a cool little tool to make the stripes on the sides

With a Happy Birthday on the front

The gift and the hat are cake.

And here is the finished product. It's far from flawless, but I like it. I figure the more I work with fondant the better I'll get :)

Best Snow Trip EVER!!!

The idea was to take a trip to play in the snow, but there hasn't been any fresh snow, so we decided to go to Morro Bay instead. It was great!

After exploring we sat to have a snack and we all sifted through the many. many pebbles to find shells

We found some pretty nice ones

it was nice to sit and relax in the hot sun with the waves and the smell of the beach(which wasn't yucky)

Sunset was beautiful too

I posted all the pictures on Facebook if you wanted to see them

Just another cake, this time for 2 of the Parent Club ladies. I decided to make it springy, we need some sunny things in our days. Since the sun refuses to show itself.
It's a spice cake with LOTS of cream cheese frosting, chopped walnuts on the sides and (drum roll please! ) plastic flowers ;) I'm thinking this is the way to go, who needs flowers made of frosting, they're just time consuming and no one eats them, nor should they, they're usually made in advance.
