mmm... CUPCAKES!

Well first off I wanted to say Farewell to my friend Lianna who is going on a mission for the LDS church. You will do great my friend. See you in a year and a half! I love you :)

These Cupcakes were for her. She wanted me to make her cake, and since she cant eat cake, I put a load of frosting on top. It was a lot of fun making these and very easy. Everything is edible on these. The flowers are made out of gumpaste which is just tons of sugar. They were a big hit! Definately one of my favorite editions to my blog.

Starting tomorrow and every monday, I am taking a cake decorating class so hopefully everyone will be able to see my progression on the things I actually learn how to make, not just make them up myself. haha

Rasberry Almond Cream Cheese Coffee Cake... say that 10 times fast. hahaha well this cake recipe was found in the calendar that i had recieved for my birthday. It gives a different recipe for each month. This cake is for my family this time. They always give me a hard time for giving away all the cakes I make to everyone else. So I wanted to do something nice for them. I hope they like it. I ran out of a few things to make this, but I substituted those items with something else. haha I was a little nervous how it would come out so I guess we will just have to wait and see when they take their first bite. I picked at it somewhat and from my taste buds, its gooood! haha

Chocolate dirt and sour worms makes for a delicious cake. I placed it in a flower pot and served it with a digging shovel.

Happy almost Valentines Day! I had a good time making this cake after messing up the first time. haha I guess all the great bakers go through times of trial and error until they get it right... right? This is a yellow butter cake with fudge frosting. Chocolate covered strawberries with a chocolate wall. A girls best friend is chocolate... well atleast mine is. I cannot wait to dig into this one.
