Ok, so this is the first post of 2012.. But sadly I have to start with unfortunate news… So I realized for sure now that I’ve deleted just about most of my creation pictures.. and that’s a real bummer.. But I can recall just about everyone. And I’m going to tell you…..THEY’RE AMAZING! The first cake I ever baked and decorated was a green dinosaur. It was for my friend’s birthday freshman year. And she wanted a dinosaur with a top hat and a monocle. It was legit, just saying.. but yah actually and honestly a girl walked up to me and said it was legit. That’s when I knew I got the knack for this.
This is what it looked like, but with a black top hat and monocle. And it was vanilla. (PS..That’s my favorite flavor)
The order of these creations is going to get a little fuzzy, but I think the next thing I made was a chocolate hello kitty cake for another friend’s birthday. It was super cute.
It looks similar to this but it was a square shaped cake without candy features, just all icing.
The next was vanilla princess cupcakes with white and pinkish-red frosting. I’ve also made a vanilla with strawberries birthday cake for my mom and a vanilla diary of a wimpy kid birthday cake for my brother.
And then some of my more recent ones were a vanilla unicorn cake, vanilla fairy wings, and chocolate Finding Nemo.
And some of the even more recent birthday cakes are a brownie cake and a chocolate cake. But these ones are special. I have learned the art of marshmallow fondant making.. AWESOME. Right?! Like really, it’s so much fun but really time consuming. ..but it comes out great. The brownie cake was made to look like a turquoise blue present with a white bow (and I even decorated a bakery box to make it look more professional). The person I made the brownie cake for actually hired me to make her mom the chocolate birthday cake… Yah!!! I’m serious, my first order!!! It was amazing!! I worked so hard on it too. When I do my bakerating it usually takes me a good two days to do everything, and this one definitely took the whole weekend to plan, assemble ingredients and bake and make. It came out pretty good, and it was surprisingly heavy. Ok so it was a two layer chocolate cake, with chocolate fondant, pink flowers, white pearls, white writing, and in the shape of a cross.
With these creations I’ve had my share of baking numerous brownies, with my secret ingredient (which I can’t find any more in local stores). I’ve made a lot of cupcakes: chocolate, vanilla, and red velvet. I might be missing a creation but if I do, I will post it; so don’t you worry. 😉 Oh, I forgot one more thing: I made holiday cupcakes for my Besties, in chocolate and vanilla. CHRISTMAS THEMES!
Sorry about not having the actual pictures for a lot of these but yah, this year seems promising. Happy New Year! And I hope you had an awesome holiday.
