What IS this? Just a little mini-cake I threw together last night.
White Chocolate Fondant, hand-painted with shimmer dust (Super Pearl), and then some fondant accents (handle, rope, and the "11"), and the leaves and little accent is out of candy clay, molded and painted.

I used Silver Luster Dust, Super Green, and Champagne. I also used edible glitter for the "11"

The inside was Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese icing. My special mix! Yum yum!! It was cake that was MUCH enjoyed! This was used as a centerpiece. It looked like some sort of figurine, one lady thought it was a porcelain piece! Maybe a teapot!!

We have a wedding coming up on 10-10-10, so watch for an update with pictures! We're doing the cake, flowers, AND cake balls.

A new cake ball flavor! Cream Cheese Brownie. Mmmm. It's GOOEY!!

Cupcakes and Ice Cream!!

I got a call from a good friend of mine, she wanted cupcakes for invitations. Hrm. Shipping cupcakes, maybe not. SO, I thought, hey, cake ball cupcakes!

So, I took the tutorial that Bakerella has (her blog BTW, FANTASTIC. Thats where my baking inspiration started!!) on her blog, made it my own, and off I went.

THEN, because I didn't have peanut butter cup candy molds, and they were on sale (yay!), I bought these really cute dessert cordial cup molds. They kind of look like miniature ice cream cones.
Ice Cream Cake Balls!!!
Here's the two different ones side-by-side.
I don't "play" around that often, so this was really fun. Usually I'm running so many different directions, I do what's on the order sheet, and I'm done. So, it was a treat to "play" this morning!!
And the "sprinkles" I used are actually edible glitter. I get SO many requests for this stuff!
Still trying to update all the things I've been making lately, still behind. But this is a fresh post, as in, I finished the ice cream cones, took pictures, and here I am posting! It's a first! =)
Oh, the cupcakes are a Double Chocolate cake with Chocolate Ganache. Dipped in white & milk chocolate.
The Ice Cream Cones are Mocha Cake, with a Dark Chocolate Ganache, MORE Coffee to strengthen the flavor, and dipped in white chocolate (cone) and Dark Chocolate (top)
They are the BEST Mocha Cake Balls I'd put together to date!
