Mickey Mouse Cupcakes

These cupcakes were made for a little girl's birthday party.  I made 6 dozen with 3 different flavours.  Chocolate using the cake and icing recipe fromthe Perfect Chocolate Cake. Lemon from Martha Stewart's Lemon Cake recipe with buttercream icing; instead of milk I used lemon juice and added some yellow dye.  For the 3rd flavour I used Martha Stewart's Raspberry Cupcake recipe with creamcheese icing dyed pink. The cupcake liners, I bought at Flour Confections to go with the Mickey Mouse theme.

I bought a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter from Cheap Cookie Cutters.com  I bought it specially for this order.  I also picked up a few other cutters for future projects.  The cutters arrived in the mail on Wednesday.  I had visions of hand cutting out 72 Mickey Mouse heads and was not looking forward to that!  For the birthday girl I added a little red bow and a number 2.

Baby Shower Cake

One of the teams on my floor had me make a cake for one of their co-workers going on off on mat leave earlier this month.  She doesn't know the sex of the baby so I made it as neutral as possible.  This was an 8" two layer chocolate cake.  I just used some circle cutters to make the polka dots and the lettering.


The unofficial shot of the cake I caught Willow trying to get at the cake. She got pretty close before I shooed her away.

Owl in Tree for Lindsay

Shocking that inspiration for this cake came from Pinterest which in turn came from the blog the Bitten Word which in turn came from the November 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living.  I'm sure that in the baking world you could play Six Degrees of Martha Stewart no problem.  One day I might actually make this cake, but the only part of this recipe I used was the caramel, and it was only half the recipe. I used the Perfect Chocolate Cake recipe for the cake.  You really can't go wrong with this recipe and I have no desire to deviate.


This is part II of Lindsay's birthday celebration.  She is an amazing friend, well, the best friend a girl could ask for, so naturally she deserves the best cake.  I knew that chocolate and caramel would be a winning combination for her.  Then for the decorating I didn't want to cover it in fondant as I still think covering this icing is a crime against nature!  On the other hand I find decorating chocolate a challenge.  Fortunately I found…

Superhero Cake for Keaton

Keaton's request this year was for a superhero cake.  I am so glad I bought the superhero cutters from Etsy.  They have been a great investment.  They save me so much time for decorating.


This was a two layer 10" chocolate layer cake with chocolate filling.  To cover seems between the different colours for the background I added the black stripes and some stars.  Orange is Keaton's favourite colour, so I couldn't leave it out and added it in with the sentiment.

Putting the cake together took a little longer than I expected, so we were a half an hour late to the party.  I had the best intentions to be on time for a change.  Oh well!
