Miss E's 7th Birthday Bash

Earlier this year I made the Brink Back the Spotted Turtle cake for a little girl who turned seven.  I loved the idea of Bring Back the Wild Birthday Celebration through Earth Rangers.  I thought it would be a great idea for Miss E to celebrate her birthday.  So I set out on convincing her that this would be a great way to celebrate her special day by helping the Monarch Butterfly to save their habitat.  Just before her birthday they actually changed the animals that you can support but decided to stick with the Monarch Butterfly.  I had everything already picked out.  Getting black and orange decorations from the dollar store at this time of year was super easy!

For the birthday cake I found my inspiration from Google.  I can't find the original picture though.  Miss E asked for a chocolate layer, a vanilla and a strawberry layer.  I never thought that I would be making a 3 tiered cake for my 7 year old's birthday!  The butterflies on the cake were not edible.  I made 30 of those on my scrapbooking retreat at Younique Country Retreat back in August along with the birthday banner.

I had a lot of fun with the loot bakes too!  I saw this idea on Pinterest a while ago and thought it would be a great idea for loot bags.  I found the containers at the Dollarama for $1.25 each.  Bought hand sanitizer for each box from Bath & Body works and filled box with treats from the Bulk Barn.  Then I added each kid's name with vinyl to the top of each box.

Each guest brought Miss E a toonie along with the donation to Earth Rangers to put towards one gift that she got to choose to commemorate her day.  She raised almost $300.00 and $40.00 in toonies.  It was a great party and we thank everyone for their donations to such a worthy cause.

Miss E was able to buy the Maplelea doll, Taryn that she has been coveting for quite some time.  The Maplelea doll is the Canadian version of the American Girl doll.

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.

Toilet Paper Roll Birthday Cake

This was a fun cake to do.  At first I really wasn't sure how it would turn out.  In the end I thought it was hilarious.

So, I started off with an 8" two layer square vanilla base tier.  The filling was raspberry mascarpone mousse.  It is so good!  Then I covered it using the grass tip to look like carpet with buttercream icing.  I would have used the filling but I didn't drain out the seeds and they would have clogged up the tip.  It wouldn't have been pretty.  Instead I dyed it to match the filling as close as possible to make pink shag carpet.
For the toilet paper roll I did a 6" 3 layer cake and covered it in fondant.  I added an extra piece of fondant to make it look like the paper was unraveling.  On the top I added a black circle of fondant to look like the empty space from the roll.  Lastly, I took a toothpick and spun the cake around to make the indentations of a "roll" of toilet paper.
The signs I made out of fondant.  In the picture I was sen…

My Little Pony Pull Apart Cupcake Cake

For this "cake" I made two dozen vanilla cupcakes and arranged them on the cake board in the shape of the rainbow and clouds.  To make sure the cupcakes didn't move I added a dab of icing on the bottom of each cupcake.

It's not that often that I get to dye icing, or six different colours at once.  You can get a really good bicep workout,

Miss E was kind enough to lend her figurines as models for the picture.  The clouds piped out perfectly.  The rainbow was a little more difficult.  Next time I would put a base coat on the cupcakes to help keep the top coat more level and easier to pipe over.
