Hello again, Bloggy Buddies!
The baking stuff has really been picking up lately, and I have really deepened my relationship with animal-themed cake pops from acquaintances to dependable BUDS. Wanna see some of their sweet little faces?? (pun intended!)
I’ve made pink puppies:
Big Al, the Alabama Elephant:
Cow cake pops:
I attempted some pitbull cake pops:
Animal prints for a bridal shower:
People and their pets:
People without their pets:
I’ve made sweet cupcake and heart pops:
….and a most unusual request – cake pops for a funeral director’s birthday!
And just wait til you see the cakes! Needless to say, I’ve been one happy baker. What have yall been up to????
In case yall have been wondering, I do still bake! In fact, I have been baking up a storm these first few months of 2012!
First there were these awesome Adventure Time cakes for a friend of mine’s son – happy birthday, Riley!
Pretty cute, no? I hear they were a huge taste hit, too and disappeared in record time. Hooray! Chocolate/vanilla swirl with milk chocolate filling and smooth vanilla buttercream frosting.
You can’t really tell by the picture, but this was a “full” (read: FOUR 13×9 cakes) sheet cake for the local antique show. Half chocolate, half vanilla with traditional “crispy” vanilla buttercream frosting. Also reported as devoured in record time.
Butter pecan cake for my Dad’s birthday. Pecans from Dad’s farm. Fresh = awesome! Happy birthday, Dad!
Ahh…..the twinkie/fisherman/Florida gator cake for my nephew’s birthday. His Mama requested that the cake taste like a twinie, so I did my darndest. They say I hit it on the head. Hooray! Cake is covered in fishing quotes, done up in gator colors. Love ya, Dalton!
Ah, the wielding of large cutlery…..
So that gets us almost caught up on cakes. I’ll post all the crazy pops I’ve done lately tomorrow, then show you the coolest baby shower cake EVER! (Well, ever to come out of my kitchen, anyway!)
Now who wants to clean my kitchen??
