For Christmas, I received a small sphere silicon pan. And in February, I finally got to play with it. My first creation were little cheesecake bonbons. Here's how that went.

One of Samantha's classmates had a sleepover themed birthday party earlier this month. Her mom asked me to make a bed cake with seven little girls in it. She sent over a picture she found online to show me what she was thinking of. I based my cake from that photo and decorated it using the birthday girl's favorite colors of pink, red and teal.

A little over a year ago, my friend Jess and her family got a surprise of a lifetime when they discovered their family of four was going to become a family of six. Now their twins, Easton and Giana, are one, and I had the fun task and honor of making their first birthday cake. Jess was a sweetheart, and let me have creative control over the cake. The only thing Jess asked for was for the cake to be split in decoration to represent each twin. I decided to keep my design a secret and set to making a cake for all.

I know it's been a long, long time...ok, let's face it, it's been two months, since I posted here. Must admit, I had a little holiday baking burnout. That paired with my hubby upgrading our computer to Windows 8, and me being afraid to upload any pictures of stuff I have made in fear of losing a lot of family pictures, didn't help. So here I am, finally ready to due some blogging. Back in January, our middle child Mackenzie turned six. Her theme this year was Lalaloopsy. This was a fun cake to put together and it helped that I had a bunch of mini Lalaloopsy dolls to help decorate it with. To make this cake even more fun, I decided to make the cake itself, have polka dots.
To make the polka dots, I made some colored cake balls just like I was making cake pops. I made a vanilla cake like normal, filling a cake pan with half the batter. Then I put the cake balls on top of the batter.
