Frogs & Lily Pads Cake

So Katie requested Frogs for the birthday cupcakes after I had decided to do the fat cats! I quickly threw together this fun frog and lily pad cakes for her the morning of the 3 birthday BBQ. The only thing that got eaten on it was the frogs! (I think that was Lilah's doing!) The fat cats were a bigger success, even afer melting in the trunk of my car... (I wont get into that, I wasnt happy!!)

Fat Cat Cupcakes Close ups!

Fat Cat Cupcakes

I hope no one who is going to be at the birthday party tomorrow afternoon looks at this blog before then! I made up Fat Cat cupcakes for Dad, Katie and Lilah's birthdays. They took forever to do... about 4 hours or so, but they look super fun!

Mother's Day Sugar Cookies

While we were on the island this past weekend, Mom and I popped into the cake decorating store in Victoria (my favorite place for decorating supplies). Mom got these great edible markers and rice paper for me to try out... so I made sugar cookies with Royal icing. They looked great, but were a little bit bland in taste... Mom gave me some tips, I will do better next time!

Mother's Day Cupcakes "Flowers on the Lawn"

I found the idea for these fun flowers on another blog and though it would be fun to make it look like they were on the lawn! You start with a yellow melting wafer on wax paper with a stencil (so all the flowers look the same) and start drawing with melted white melting wafers. Throw the outline in the freezer for a few minutes before continuing on to the pink melting wafer filling (that way the flower holds its shape)
Again, put the flower into the freezer for a few minutes... when you pull them out and flip them over, this is what they look like!
Mix up some butter cream icing... mix in some Wilton Kelly Green food coloring....
Ice with the icing tip that makes "grass" and place the flower on top! Super simple and Super Yummy!
Happy Mother's Day!!
