Star Wars Wookie Cookies....

I made these for my son's Birthday treat for his class.   My kids both love Star Wars and I have to say that I had a lot of fun making these cookies!!  All the kids in class seemed to enjoy them too..even the girls ;)  Will definitely be making these again.

A Dog Birthday Cake...

No, not a cake shaped like a dog....but an actual cake made FOR a dog!  This was a cake I made for my dog's 9th Birthday.  She is getting up there in years and I thought she deserved a special treat for her special day :)  I made the cake out of some moist dog food.  I added some egg white and shaped the layers in cake pans.  I made the icing from mashed potato and some beet juice for the pink coloring.  The little paw prints on the top of the cake (that form the 9) are little dog treats.  My dog loved the cake...but in all honesty, she isn't a very fussy eater ;)

Luke Skywalker / Hoth Wampa Cake

I'm not even sure if people will know they are reading English with that post title...unless, of course, you are a huge Star Wars fan!  This cake was done for my son's 7th Birthday.  He loves, loves, loves Star Wars! And I love, love, love to make him happy :)  This is a vanilla cake with chocolate ganache filling, buttercream icing and fondant and krispy treat decorations!

A special day and lotsa dots!

This cake was made for a special couple, celebrating with friends and family, at a casual, out-door wedding celebration party.  The cake was created to match a dress worn by the daughter of the Bride at their ceremony.   A fun cake for a fun and wonderful family!

Peace, Love and a Cake....

This cake was made for an 8 year old's birthday!  She was in love with the idea of having a Peace symbol on top of her cake.  This was definitely the most important aspect of the cake for her:)  The birthday girl's favorite colors are purple and blue, so we incorporated this into the overall cake decor too!  This is a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream filling.  All fondant covering and decorations.
