Alright, I’ve been creating and baking and making and cleaning and working. But I will NOW blog. To at least fill you in on a few fun things I’ve made as of late.
First, prison escape cupcakes, probably the best idea ever dreamed up (by my friend Pat), delivered to sir Chad Koeplinger upon his guest spot at Rock of Ages Tattoos, Austin.
The secret shall not be unveiled!
This cake was ordered for Jean from her son. I thought it was funny because of the “old lady” part. She said it was the best birthday cake she’d ever had, and ordered another cake from me for their Christmas Eve Dinner. That one will be posted as well.
I have, of course, been wanting an excuse to make one of those giant cupcake cakes that people make. AND, Leila, my friend’s daugher, LOVES cupcakes. SO, there’s the perfect excuse…a birthday order! Not bad for my first one. Also super cute when next to a regularly sized cupcake. I love it, and so did she!
And, as I said before, Frankie’s mom Jean loved her birthday cake so much, she asked me to make a Red Velvet Christmas cake for her family. Simply decorated, with cream cheese frosting and non-pereil sprinkles, and a hand made gum-paste holly leaf.
I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy holiday season. And wishes for a peaceful and full new year ahead of us all. I’m ready for 2009 to be over. I definitely am looking forward to a new beginning, whatever that may mean.
