I'm Back....

I’m back! It has been a while since my last post. I have been busy this summer, but not just with my cakes, but with the kids as well.

My sister-in-law bought me a book called The Help, by Katherine Stockett.

The Help

She said it’s a good book and that I should read it. And sure enough, it is a good book. I’m not finished yet, but I will tell you about it when I’m done.
Now then, back to cakes: I think I will start putting the pictures of my cakes in this blog.
1. Jimmy Choo Shoe.
I made this cake for practice after I saw it in the book, Confetti Cakes, by Elissa Strauss.

The Confetti Cakes Cookbook: Spectacular Cookies, Cakes, and Cupcakes from New York City's Famed Bakery

I think it turned out pretty good, to make the shoe, I bought a cheap shoe at Ross Stores and took it apart so that I would have a pattern.. You can go to You Tube to see the tutorial from Anne Heap of Pink Cake Box to see how to make this shoe.

2. Flip Flop Cake.
This cute cake was for the girls in my son’s class at their combined summer birthday party. It was easy to do, just by following instructions from the Planet Cake book by Paris Cutler.

 I made some cupcakes to go with this cake
