Seeing squares....

So I finally am getting comfortable with my superhero knowledge and all of a sudden... Batman is out and Creeper (?) is in!  Boo.  The Minecraft craze has been going on for a while now but we're just starting to get into it.  My only knowledge is that they do have cute character 'stuffies'!!!  
This cake was for my youngest nephew... who I held when he was only a few weeks old and is now up to my elbows!!!  Where does the time go?  Happy 6th Birthday dude!

By the time I was done making this cake I was literally seeing squares... not stars!  It's a triple layer chocolate cake filled with the most delectable chocolate buttercream ever!  How many squares could you eat???

Lucky Little Cowboy :)

I first want to prefice this post with the fact that Grandma's are just plain awesome.  And this Grandma took her awesomeness to the next level by finding this 'Classy Cowboy' cake design for a special little guy turning 1... complete with Cowboy Cupcakes!  The cake is french vanilla with buttercream filling and the cupcakes chocolate.  Yee-haw little man... I hope you have a great 1st birthday!

Everything Sweet....

There is going to be a woodland themed party this weekend for a sweet little girl that promises to be an 'Owl lot of fun!!!  I was given a picture of the party plates and napkins for inspiration and this is what I came up with.  I call it... Design by Paper Plate!  

While the raccoons are super cute, I forgot just how much I love owl's until I started making them!!! Is there anything more festive than an owl blowing a noisemaker to celebrate turning '2'!?!  :)

It's beginning to look a lot like....

Christmas Flowers!!!!

My mom always had poinsettia's around the house at Christmas time, so these bring back memories of family, friends and fireplaces...  Of shortbread cookies, sweet marie bars and lemon squares!!!

Since her birthday is at the beginning of December, I think I will make her a poinsettia cake this year!  I am thinking a white velvet cake with peppermint mocha buttercream.  :)

When a 4-year and 5-year old play with icing...

Happy Birthday to me!  Colour scheme courtesy of a couple of kindergarteners.  :)  The thought is there though!!!

This was a vanilla tiramisu cake covered with a chocolate ganache and filled with a Bailey's buttercream filling.  :)  Did I mention... happy birthday to me???  Lol.
