From the Playroom to the Kitchen

Hi all,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I wanted to take a little break from re-decorating and holiday prep to share a couple of recent cake projects.

The first was cupcakes for my dear friend, Beth.  She is a teacher, swimteam manager and amazing mom to 2 beautiful girls.  She's one of those women to whom the title "Superwoman" could easily apply.  Beth recently hosted a Stella & Dot party and asked me to provide some sweet treats for her guests.  For those who don't know, a Stella & Dot party is kind of like a Tupperware party, but for really cute jewelry. I wanted to make the cupcakes special for Beth, so I made some toppers to mimic some jewelry designs that I dreamed up.  The cupcakes were rich and moist Choco-Mocha topped with tangy Cream Cheese icing and topped with fondant jewelry.  Thanks for the support, Beth!

 Next up was a baptism cake for my friend, Amanda.  I had done the Nursery Rhyme cake for a baby shower that Amanda hosted, but this cake would be for Amanda's own baby girl.  The inspiration for the design came from the nursery, which has a very cute woodland theme.  The sweet creatures were hand painted by Amanda's husband and are really adorable.  On top of the cake is a little miniature Abby in her Christening dress and bonnet. She is hand-molded out of fondant.

Thanks again to both Beth and Amanda and happiest of holidays to all of you!
Confectionately yours!
