Busy Week

Hello, quite a busy week it was. I made 2 cakes and a half this week. The half cake is a little one that I made for Alex to take in to nursery for his birthday. It was just something very simple since I didn't think a bunch of 2-year-olds would care too much about how it looks.

Then I had a double birthday cakes order on Saturday. One Scooby Doo and one colorful lizard. The Scooby Doo one wasn't too bad but the lizard one took ages to finish. Came out rather nice though. I hope it's not too busy with all the different colors. Everybody was amazed by it. I couldn't decide whether I would make Scooby face with frosting, frozen butter cream transfer, or fondant. As you can see, at the end I went with fondant.

Here are the pictures. Thanks for looking.

My son is 2!!!

Can't believe my son is 2 already!! Time has gone by fast this year. For his birthday, I made him 2 trains, Wilson (the red one) and Brewster (the blue one) from the Chuggington cartoon. I planned on making all three of the main character trains, but it was 4:30 in the morning by the time I finished the two trains, so I decided not to finish the third train (Koko) and went grab a couple hours of sleep. Koko is still sitting in the fridge frosted with frosting right now. It will probably stay that way until we eat it. =)

Wilson and Brewster took a very long time to make, but I am very happy with the results. We ate half of Brewster today when Alex's little friends came over. I am sure we will eat the rest tomorrow when we have a BBQ.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Alex blowing out candles. Happy Birthday, big boy!!

Black & White

Made for a friend's anniversary. I asked her if she wants elegant or cute; she picked elegant. I thought of a few different designs and at the end decided on this black and white theme. It looked simple but it took me hours to put those black embroidery designs on.
