What's Up Cupcake??

Well, I will tell you what is up... BAKING in my house. I have been very blessed to have baking jobs through out the month of December AND January. So far, I have one order for February. Let me just take a second to say that I don't know how this happened... I picked up this hobby, like I have said before, to make cupcakes per my pregnant sister's request... The rest is history.
For the month of January, I branched out a little and made TWO cakes... I didn't think I would ever be good at a whole cake. All I kept thinking was, if I mess up this is it, I have to start all over. I can't just throw the cupcake or cookie away and pick up an extra one that I have set aside.
It is very obvious that I have a lot to learn and way far to go, but I was presently surprised with how my cakes turned out.
In this whole cake process, I also learned how to make homemade fondant. That was sooo much FUN! If you are interested in learning, just ask I will give you the link. I am not a secret recipe kinda gal. I like to share. :)

Anyways, here are my cakes. Please be nice with your judgements. I know there are flaws, believe me I picked these cakes apart when I was decorating them.

Happy Birthday! Cake
John's dad, Charlie, turned 56 and John's aunt, Marla turned 50. So, to celebrate we went out to dinner and then had everyone back to our house for cake and ice cream and gifts!

These next pictures are of a cake I did for a baby shower. The momma to be LOVES anything Arctic-polar bears, penguins, snowflakes... The little baby boy's room will even be done in the same theme.

These are the cupcakes I made with a few penguin cookies hangin around...

Up next, you might wonder??? Chocolate cupcakes with Zebra print liners and HOT pink icing. FUN!! Pictures to come!
