Birthdays, Baseball and Babies

I had a busy week (as usual) last week, it being my son Tyler's 5th birthday and all! The first project I had was for his preschool class. They celebrate in class with all his friends, so of course I had to do special cupcakes! We decided on chocolate cupcakes with oreo cream frosting (YUM!). I found these little Star Wars rings that went perfect (or at least I thought they would until the fighting started....). They went over very well with the kiddos.:)

Next up was for Ty's season-ending T-Ball pizza & trophy party for the 'Yankees'. I made these super cute baseball cupcakes (with help and inspiration from a couple of friends) for the party and the kids loved them! The mitts & balls are made of fondant, as well as the 'Yankee' balls. The cupcakes were chocolate chip flavor (one of my favs).
For Ty's birthday party I did a Star Wars themed cake with a few cupcakes. I did a swirling/marbling technique with the fondant to make it look space-y and was really happy with it. The light sabers are made of fondant, and I found the Darth Vader and Luke fugurines at a cake supply store. The cake and cc were oreo flavor with fudge and crushed oreo filling. It was a first for this flavor, and it was a thimbs up for sure!

My big 5 year old!!!
Lastly was a cake I did for my friend Stacey's baby shower. I created a fondant baby on top and used the colors mainly from the invitation for inspiration. I was really happy with it, and she said she loved it. The flavors were white chocolate with raspberry filling, and again, oreo with fudge and crushed oreo filling. Double YUM!!!
My great friend Jill (to some) Nicole (to others) came over and helped me out A LOT this week!! Thank God for her and her creativity, too!!! Here's us after a long day of partyin' and workin'...


  1. You get a "thimbs" up from me! LOL!

  2. Wow, everything looks amazing! And thanks for getting back to me, I do have another question if you don't mind. I was going to attempt making a cake with fondant and was wondering do you make your own or is the kind that you can buy at the craft stores okay? I honestly wouldn't know.

    Thanks, Danielle Farley

  3. Your light sabers came out fantastic and not too phallic! They look amazing. What an awesome cake!
