Wedding tutu!

I wanted to make a huge tutu! This consists of 12 yards of tulle! Crazy, yes, but adorable! They aren't practical for anything but photo shoots and weddings, I can't imagine a girl just running around the house in one all day!

Signature hat

Every year I decide to give up crocheting because I don't need MORE things to do, but somehow every fall I find myself making matching hats again. It's basically the same hat EVERY TIME, only slight variations, but I love the ribbon so I can't help it. And such a cute subject too!

Cupcake crazy!

If you have ever gone to buy a cute little cupcake at the store and gufawed at the price of a simple cupcake then I challange you to make cupcakes for an event. I made 200 brains for a ward party and then a week later frosted another 200 for a wedding! Very time consuming and tedious, but people go crazy for them right now. Try to appreciate the work that goes into that tiny little thing before you gobble it up complaining about the price!

Halloween this year

This year we went for the Aladdin Theme! I borrowed Aladdin's costume, I made the hat and vest for Abu, and made the Jasmine outfit and Carpet! It was fun and after Halloween there was a Radio contest for tickets to Disney on Ice. You sent in a photo of your kids dressed as disney Characters so I sent in our family pic and WE WON!!!!

Mickey Mouse Cake

My friend had a Bridal Shower with a Disney theme (engaged at Disney Land) And so I asked if I could make a cake for it! The hardest part was trying to pipe on the Disney Font by hand.

Princess Cake

I asked to make a cake for a friends, daughters, Sweet 16 party. It was a princess theme, and I have tons of fun designing this cake! It really came to life once all the jewels were on. There were a few mishaps including the bottom cake attempting to slide off its stand... I DON'T THINK SO. I went to 3 Michael's to get Duff's new silver graffiti spray....all gone within a day. Who in Hades ran around and bought up all the silver (no other color was out) in idaho just to spite me. Needless to say it was my first time using the silver cake powder/ paint which was.... interesting.

I made these cupcakes (brownie really) for my friends party. She gave me the recipe and they were DELICIOUS!!!

1 box dark choc brownie mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil

1/2 cup water

1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup chopped almonds

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1/3 cup powdered sugar

4 TB Bird’s custard powder (I used cook and serve custard jello mix)

2 TB butter

4 TB semi sweet choc chips

Combine brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water. Stir until moistened. In a separate bowl, combine coconut and chopped almonds.

Spoon nut mixture evenly throughout paper liners. Fill paper liners with brownie batter ¾ full. Bake at 350 for 13-15 min, until soft in the center. Remove and cool comp on wire rack.

Meanwhile, whip the cream until firm peaks form. Add custard powder and powdered sugar and combine well. Frost cooled cupcakes with the custard, be generous!

Melt butter and choc in a small bowl in the microwave. Be careful not to burn the choc. Stir every 20 sec. Drizzle cooled choc over the custard cream topping

My parents have this little sudio apartment in their backyard that has seen many people in and out through the years. We are temporarily living here for the summer in between moving and decided that it was time for a little change. The RADICAL/NASTY/MATTED green carpeting was ripped up and I got my paint skills out once more.
To my sisters, do you even recognize it anymore? I thought I would feel some sadness when the beautiful green was gone (yeah right)!

Strawberry Shortcake birthday

My Oldest girl turned three and we had a Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party. My sister designed the Invites for me check out her blog HERE! We were supposed to do it outside but the weather was cold and windy. Also, the balloons were supposed to have leaves so they would look like strawberries, but they didn't turn out like I wanted and I didn't have time to change it!

Swiss Cheese
Sliced Ham

This makes up the Sandwich, then you dunk it in the batter:
1 C milk
2 T Flour

Fry the sandwich in vegetable oil till crisp, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve with raspberry jam!

Princess Cake!

I got the chance to make another cake for birthday party! I LOVE getting the practice because it really easy to forget when you aren't constantly making cakes. Its rare for me to whip up some frosting just to practice making flowers on my own time. Im totally rusty but hopefully I can find ways to brush up and get better at my cakes! When I saw the picture in the wilton book, they make it look so much easier than it is...I think they cheat and use royal icing!
