Cupcake Toppers!

Yum. I was asked by a friend if I would be interested in making some Anaheim Angel cupcake toppers for her son's birthday. I thought, now that could be a challenge, and promptly said "Sure". Argh, now what? Well thank goodness I had recently purchased a program called SCAL for my cutter so now I'm able to cut anything I can make into a computer SVG file. Yeah. So here are what the cupcake toppers ended up looking like. And yes I think they'll look great on top of a cupcake!

Nail polish spa party cake.This cake was super fun to make. I embossed the fondant to look like real cotton pads. Also the spilled nail polish was dusted with edible gold luster dust. It was a hit at the party and super yummy too. :-)
Purse cake.A good friend of mine is a consultant and sales person for the ever popular Miche purse line. It was her 40th Birthday and her husband called me in a panic. "I forgot to order a cake, help! What can I do?" Well. Leave it to me to fashion a purse on the spot. This was a really fun cake to make and I used one of my Limited edition Miche purse shells as inspiration. She loved it and yes, it was super yummy too.
Goooooaaaaalllllll!!!!! Another fun cake.
I was asked to make a birthday cake for a young lady turning 10. All the information I was given was she loved the color yellow, she loved the sport of soccer, her jersey number was #4 and her team uniform was all black! So this is what I came up with. It was a hit! The ball looked really cool too. I used MMfondant hexagons and pentagons on the soccer ball, Yellow and Black MM fondant on the sides and green buttercream piped like grass on the top.
My new venture: COOKIES!!

After watching the Cricut Cake Class on line, with Jinger, I was inspired and excited to play with cookie dough. I made my own sugar cookie recipe and chilled my dough in the fridge before I rolled it out on the Cricut Cake mat. Then after rolling it out I put it in the freezer for about 5-6 mins (just to stiffen up). The cookie dough cut very nicely after freezing. The image I used was the notebook from the My Community cartridge. I layered 2 cuts together with the cookie stick in between. It worked perfectly! I made these cookies for the April birthdays at our elementary school. Since these worked so nicely I'm going to change the image every month to make it fun and interesting. Try it!!!
