Strawberry Shaped Cake

Aaw this cake was a bit of a challenge to figure out. Someone came to me asking for a strawberry shaped cake. I thought it would be a lot harder than it turned out to be. I had a lot of fun making this one.

The strawberry is covered in Marshmallow Fondant with fondant leaves. The grass is piped butter cream and the little strawberries are all fondant. 

This was for a girls 18th birthday. She apparently loves strawberries!

This was a fun order to get. I love being able to be creative!

My next cake project is a Mario cake! So excited for it! 


Chocolate Cups

I made these little beauties for my boss's birthday. We had these during our department meeting and they were perfect. 

I made milk and dark chocolate cups and then filled them with chocolate mousse and a raspberry and strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I also dipped some of the strawberries in dark chocolate.


I also made little chocolate accents to sit in the cups.

You wouldn't know from just looking at them, but they are so delicious! 


Pink Rose Cake

I have been very MIA lately but it is because I have been so busy. I have been working on some very fun cakes and experimenting with some fun new things. I will of course be posting pictures about these new fun projects. But for now I just want to share what I was working on last week. I love this Rose technique.

This cake was for an anniversary party. It is a nice vanilla cake inside with yummy strawberry filling and a cream cheese frosting.

Personally I would have loved to see this cake completely covered in the roses..so beautiful! But the customer wanted writing on top. It turned out very nice. 

My next project that I am working on this week is a strawberry shaped cake and so far it is looking good. I will post pictures later. But here's a little sneak peek:
So nothing I can do will make this picture the right side up....so weird. I tried saving it in different formats and uploading it as a URL from photobucket. Hm....sorry it's side ways :)

New way to Cell Phone

This post brought to you by TracFone. All opinions are 100% mine.

Cell phones can be so expensive but also a very convenient way to help keep your kids safe. But you don't have to decide between saving money and giving your children a protective tool anymore. Introducing the new Tracfone. 

The Tracfone is a risk free, hassle free, and low cost way to allow your kids (or yourself!) to travel with a cell phone without the contracts and head aches of traditional phones. The phones have national coverage and work great no matter where you are at. 

You can simply pay as you go and pay as you use it or purchase service cards available at retail stores nationwide. This is a great option if you really only want to use the phone for emergencies.

Go here to check out what real customers have to say about the reliability of the Trackfone: real TracFone customers

Phone options range from simple to use to the ultra smart phone with cameras and full web capabilities. You don't ever have to be stuck with the typical 2 year contract again. I need to show this to my Dad, he will love it!

Fun Weekend

Hubby and I had a fun weekend, we went to the Orange County Fair. We have never been before and it was a fun day! Orange county is about 10 degrees cooler than our home since it's right at the ocean. We had a beautiful ocean breeze all day and it was beautiful.

Oh yeah, we just HAD to have a funnel cake! Hubby was also slightly inclined to try the chocolate covered bacon! Yuck! Thankfully he didn't :)

Hope you all had a great weekend :)


Sell old Electronics for $$

This post brought to you by uSell. All opinions are 100% mine.

In our technology age, the gadgets and phone we use everyday get replaced so quickly. Each time I get a new cell phone I wish there was a way to cell my old one. For years Ebay was the only real option online and that can be really hard to figure out. 

But I recently learned about a new site called uSell.com.

Picture 2

uSell offers CASH for old cell phones and other electronics. For instance a recent cash offer they just had was for the iPad 1 for $250. Not bad when trying to save up for the new iPad 2. The website is very easy to use. 

Just go to the site: Cash for Your Cell Phones and Electronics and type in the device, model or brand. I currently have a Droid X cell phone. So I enter that into the search bar. It then asks me questions about the product such as is there water damage and is the unit working. Then companies come up showing you the top cash offers. My top cash offer was for $125 which is awesome considering I bought it for $200 new! 

The website is really easy to use and you get to see what amount they are offering right up front. This is great when deciding whether selling your old camera is worth it or not. I think I have a new favorite selling site.

What do you think?

Spring Flower Cake

We went to some friends house for dinner last night and I made this to bring for dessert. I am quickly realizing that using the Wilton flower press is not all that time efficient or good looking. But that's how you learn!

I am attempting my first royal icing sugar cookies this weekend for 4th of July. I'll post some pictures next week if they turn out :)
