My fancy Flower design Frosting 

This is my interpretation of a fancy flower design. I used the orange and white frosting and was trying to get the white on the ends. I think they look ok but I need to work on the technique a bit more. Please like and or leave comments.

Carrot Cupcakes 

These cupcakes are loaded with carrots. I have been experimenting with different piping tools and mixing colors for frosting cupcakes. I want the cupcakes to look noticeably different although a lot of the cupcakes have cream cheese frosting. I think I will also use a different piping tip for them next time I make them. Previously, I used larger gummy carrot pieces as toppers and I see that these mini candy carrots I used on these cupcakes are much smaller than I expected. 

Christmas Cupcakes-2016

Each year I try to modify the designs for my cupcakes.  Sometimes I find that using  only sprinkles and candy toppers can make cupcake decorating very festive.

Baby’s 1st Birthday cake

A smash cake is the highlight of any toddler’s birthday party and I was happy to make this one. It is made with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting. Since it is  for a toddler, I reduced the amount of cream cheese in the frosting. The Baby Mickey edible image was ordered a couple days in advance. I trimmed the image, applied it to the cake and then piped a blue border on to the cake.

Layer Red Velvet Cake with cream cheese frosting

I am always looking for different recipes and ideas for red velvet cake. I saw a similar cake on a Pin in Pinterest and thought I would give it a try with my recipe. Well since this was an experiment, I decided to substitute the Hershey’s cocoa with Dutch chocolate. It taste okay but I can tell the difference. I will stick to my Hershey’s next time.  I bake a 9×13 cake then cut the cake into 3 equal pieces. That was a guess that was a little off so I trimmed them down a bit. My cake rose nicely but this obviously wasn’t a good thing because when I stacked the cakes they were very high and leaned a bit.  I came so close to tossing it out but decided to complete the cake. It’s not my best work but here it is.
