The Hedwig cake was for our family party. But I also had a friend party a few days later. I wanted simple cupcakes for that.I just swirled butter cream on top of fun-fetti cupcakes. I sprinkled them with yellow cake sparkles. Then with yellow candy melts and melted those and drew out lightning bolts. Then while they were still wet, I sprinkled gold Wilton shimmer dust on to get them to sparkle. Once they were dried I put them on the cupcakes. Very simple and easy!

My oldest son wanted a Harry Potter cake. We decided to do Hedwig, Harry's pet owl. After a lot of internet searches we came up with this:

I got a chance to do another Cars cake last month. I wanted it a little different than the one I already did, but keep it similar since they loved the original. I also got to make a smash cake as it was for a 1 year old. As usual it was chocolate with butter cream.

This cake was so much fun to make. I want to do another one! Chocolate must be the summer flavor of choice. It's all in butter cream, except the shells and sand. The shells are molded chocolates I made, and the sand is actually brown sugar! Yum. Lots of sugar!
My son changed his mind all month on what type of birthday cake he wanted. About a week before we settled on a Cars cake from the Pixar movie. This was a fun cake to make. It's all chocolate with butter cream frosting, candy, and real cars from the toy section at Target.

Once again, I have a new favorite cake. This is the Rose cake from I am Baker blog. I would love to do it as a wedding cake - I think it would be so pretty.
This is a white cake with a lemon custard filling covered in butter cream!

These were ordered for a Toy Story Birthday Party. I found the instructions from the Family Fun Magazine website. Funfetti cupcakes with butter cream frosting, mentos eyes and green sour straws and sour easter jelly beans worked into the ears and antennae.

This has to be one of my favorites so far. It was chocolate cake covered in lots of lots of butter cream frosting. I found a picture on the Internet and turned it into a cake with my own twist of doing individual scales to make it more dragon like. Wings and flames are fruit roll ups. Eyes are marshmallows. Nostrils are chocolate chips. Claws are lemon fruit slices. So fun to make.
This is a Golden Vanilla cake with raspberry filling. Covered in MM fondant and gum paste blossoms and butterflies. Also a pearl strand border.
