Dora the Explorer & Deigo Cake

I have been looking forward to making this cake for my good friend Tram for her son's 3rd birthday. She sent me a picture of what she had in mind and this is my version of it.

After several unsuccessful attempts at making Dora and Deigo out of chocolate transfers I decided to cut cut them out with my cricut using MTC. 

The bottom layer is chocolate with ganache and top layer is butter yellow with lemon filling.

SVGAttic - Be Mine

SVGAttic released their newest file this week called Be Mine. I fell in love with the card and knew I had the perfect Basic Grey paper to go with it. I did modify the file slightly by making an shadow on panel 1 so I would have a black layer and a leopard layer. I also added a black shadow to the LOVE word and cut out the V in the red version of LOVE.

I love how this turned out just wish I could of gotten a better picture of it.

Pink, Black & White Birthday Cake

I got a text from an old co-worker asking if I would make the cake for her birthday - her only request was something PINK - EASY since Pink is also my favorite color. I had so much fun making this cake. I hope she loves it!! I made MMF for this cake. The white wasn't white enough so I added white gel coloring.

I also decided to use this as an opportunity to play with some recipes. I made a vanilla milk chocolate cake with coffee instead of water, filling was a vanilla bean butter cream and I added crystal sugar to the filling for crunch - not sure how that will play out. Can't wait to get some feed back.

100 Cupcake Boxes - Prototype

My girlfriend asked me to make her 100 cupcake boxes for her daughter's first birthday. I found to be more of a challenge than I expected, one was the short amount of time I had to make them and finding enough paper and ribbon in stock to get them made in time.

This is my prototype - I plan on adding some rhinestones to bling this out!

I am also making the cake for the party. Will post more pictures later! :)

Valentine's Heart Shaped Candy Box

Earlier this month I made a candy box using the cricut cartridge George Basic Shapes. I decided to make another one using Valentines papers - I love how this turned out.

Here is the video again in case you missed it!

Happy First Birthday Vincent - Mickey Mouse Club

Here is my latest cake made for my great nephew's 1st birthday. I didn't have much time to spend on this cake with the passing of Grandma Vicky this week. It is fairly simple. I used my Cricut Cake to cut out the Mickey head and the stars.
