A few recent orders…Wonder Pets and Gymnasts!

Here is some a few of things I have been doing lately…non Halloween related. I know I have been bombarding y’all with Halloween treats, so I figured i will take a break, for the moment.

Anyway, I got another order for a cupcake cake…
This one was for 2 sister’s having a gymnastics themed birthday party.
I was asked that the cake resembled the girl’s invitation…
So, I did my best, wanting to put 2 gymnasts on there, so each girl was represented!
She told me that the girl’s both have red hair, so I personalized the cute little gymnast…
I’m working on making the icing as smooth as possible…any suggestions?
Another order that I just got done with was for a Wonder Pets Party…
We decided to do the capes, which I think are really sweet ~
She asked for cookie favors and I think they turned out super cute.
I forgot to take pictures of the them all bagged and bowed, but I am sure you get the idea!
I loved how these came out!
They are actually on their way right now to the birthday party in Alaska! How crazy is that?
I hope they arrive safe and sound!

    I think both orders turned out really cute.

    I have to do a Wonder Pets birthday cake next month. I'm a little nervous. Why couldn't they ask for cookies?!

    Monica–I was a little nervous about the Wonder Pets too, but after speaking with the lady who ordered them, we both agrees to NOT try and duplicate the characters. I was afraid that they would look a little "off", you know? I thought about doing the "fly boat" and hat would have been cute too, but next time! You have to post pics of your cake! I would love to see what you do! Also, any tips on how to get that buttercream smooth??

    You did a fantastic job on the cupcake cake! She better have liked it! Much better than any grocery store cake that's FOR SURE!

    Wow, Alaska?!

    Smooth icing. I don't know what kind of icing you use, but if you let it crust a little then place parchment on top and run a smooth edge (like a icing spatula)over it, it smooths out the imperfections. Not that you need to do this though, the cake is adorable anyway!

    Everything looks Ah-mazing and that is a Great use for the gown cookie-cutter. SO creative!

    You must (please!?) post photos of just how on earth you do your cupcake cake. I cannot wrap my mind around how you get the "cake" top to look so smooth and well, just like a cake!

    Thank you for your Blog and for sharing your ideas. I'm inspired!

    kb ~ Sorry about the search for the cape cookie cutter…in this instance I cut my cookies by hand, but if you have a large bell cookie cutter from Christmas that might work.
    Sorry 🙁
