Graduation Cakes

Graduation cakes for a friend's daughter. She's going off to nursing school, so that explains the second one. The first one I forgot to take a picture until it was in the box. I was fighting humidity, so I was afraid to try to take it out again.

Just pretend you can see it all.  It was gold and purple.

The nursing one wasn't quite so problematic.

Well, that's all for now.

Rubber Ducky Birthday Cake

This year the girl wanted a ducky cake for her birthday. She didn't really have a reason, just that she wanted ducks. I think she was trying to copy her brother's turtle cake without being too obvious about it.

So I found a ducky cake on Pinterest and shamelessly copied it.

She was quite pleased.

I took the leftovers to work and people kept asking who was having a baby. Because, really, it's a baby shower cake.

But, hey, it made her happy. Especially the giant sunglasses-wearing rubber ducky on top. It lights up.

Well, that's all for now.

Pink and Green Baby Shower Cookies

Pink and green baby shower cookies. It's a girl!

I actually haven't been blogging because I haven't been taking pictures. These were e-mailed to me from the party.

Maybe someday I'll get a good camera and learn how to use it. But probably not.

Well, that's all for now.

Flag Cakes Galore!

OK, so not so much flag cakes galore as two flag cakes.

One for a friend:

That is one ugly tablecloth.

And one for a family picnic:

And of course, the inside.

It worked out a little better this year because I made them smaller and was able to use a 4" cookie cutter to cut the middle out of the blue cake. Much easier than trying to cut a circle with a template and a knife.

Well, that's all for now.

Mickey Mouse-themed Cookies

They were celebrating a retirement at my mom's place of employment and she asked me to make some cookies for her. Turns out the retiree is a big Mickey Mouse fan! And it just so happens that my cookie-friend Lisa gave me some genuine, officially licensed Disney cookie cutters a while back. Yay!

So as usual, I did not take a picture of the cookies before they left my house. My mom did get one, though, and she sent it to me. I kind of liked how they came out.

I did have a couple extras that I got a close-up of.

I did not have any extras of the Minnie bow. :-(  So no close-up of that one. I used a butterfly cookie cutter (Thanks, Sugarbelle!!) and did the outlining and details in black to coordinate with the rest of the set.

I think I might make these again sometime.

Well, that's all for now.

PEEPS Cookies!

As usual, I'm a little late, but these are the cookies I did for Easter this year. Simple chick and bunny Peeps. So easy and so cute!

In the spirit of impending Spring, I also did some in green and blue, but I didn't take pictures of that batch. Oops.

I seriously love these cookies. They're so easy and so cute. Did I say that already? Because it's true. I don't even keep the Peeps cutters with the rest of the cookie cutters. The Peeps live in a kitchen drawer, where they'll be safe.

Well, that's all for now.

Operation Cookie Takeover #5 - America Cookies

Cookies, cookies and more cookies! I've been busy decorating cookies and it's been great! Unfortunately, I'm not so good a taking pictures and posting them.

So last month was another Operation Cookie Takeover. I sent a couple dozen cookies out.

Various shapes in patriotic colors. Had I been thinking clearly, I would have made red white and blue Peeps cookies since it was around Easter-time. Maybe next year.

As usual I forgot to take pictures until after I bagged them.  *sigh*

Well, that's all for now.
