A Bouquet for a Teacher

School supplies arranged with springtime flowers help a kindergarten teacher celebrate her birthday.  This teacher loves chocolate, so the inside of her cake was three layers of Devils' Food cake with chocolate fudge filling in between.  On the outside, a buttercream basket holds a bunch of sugar blossoms and edible pencils, paper, scissors and rulers... an A+ birthday celebration!

Monograms and Margaritas

I love the theme of this shower cake.  Monograms make me happy and so does tequila!   These cupcakes were almond cake with buttercream icing, but the sparkly sugar around the edges made me think about salt around the rim of a margarita glass.... mmmm! 

I made the big monogrammed lime slice out of rice krispie treats and covered it in fondant before painting all the details with edible paints.  More sparkly sugar "salt" on top of the cake completed the look.

Handyman Treats

What do you get for a man who has every product that Craftsman ever made?  Edible tools, of course!  

I made these for a good friend's father to help celebrate his birthday.  They won't be very useful for a home improvement project... but they are just perfect for a tastebud improvement project!

It's a bird, it's a plane...

... it's a sweet super hero just hanging out and waiting for a cake to save!

The Most Important Meal of the Day

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"

"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” 

Personally, I love to start my day with an egg sunny-side up.  But now I can end my day with one too.  How convenient!
