Well the oven is still an issue. This time around I just left it open a smidge and let the extra heat float out into the kitchen. I am afraid that this is not a viable option for the summer. I am going to need to start an oven fund soon!

This is a simple sweet 16 cake- strawberry cake, buttercream icing covered in fondant, with simple fondant flowers.

Cupcakes are not my friend.

I say a lot of things are not 'your friend'. Those of you who know me well, will know just what i am referring to.

However, cupcakes really aren't my friend. Or maybe my OVEN isnt my friend.

I burned the first 2 dozen cupcakes. The next group, I watched like a crazy person. Everytime, I walked away from the oven for 5 mins and then went back and checked the oven thermometer that I keep in the very old oven--the temperature was 450degs, even though the oven was set at 225. What the world?? Finally, I just kept the oven door open and stood over it and watch them cook. some of them were still a little darker than I prefer. Most of the 'first batch' had to go in the trash, too bad.

Finally-about 45 cupcakes all finished up... I have attached a couple of pictures. enjoy! Some are vanilla and some are strawberry flavored. buttercream icing with fondant gerbera daisies, pink and orange (never know about the iphone pic)!


I will post a pic about my least favorite friend right now----THE OVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pillow Birthday Cake

This cake was the cake from the nether-region. Seriously, it was 'thomas the train' all over again. Those of you who know me well- know what this means. ..

I dont know what the world was the deal, nothing worked out-- its just a pillow for goodness sake. well it took me so many hours I cant begin to count. things ended up going ok. the cake was delivered without a hitch. i rebaked it around 0100 on Friday night. These things happen--- hope you enjoy the pic.
the cake is chocolate with ganache filling and covered in buttercream and fondant. Enjoy!
