I had a fun request for a baby boy shower cake and I've been busy, busy, busy all week creating the creatures. I took a few photos as I went along and thought I would share.
I would like to introduce you to MOMMY Frog...
...and this is MOMMY & Baby Frog. I made him holding a cute little teddy bear. Of course, some of their friends are in the background - two snail critters and Mrs. Turtle.
I also had a "Tom & Jerry" cake this week, so you will see there's few pieces of cheese, colored circles and mallets scattered on my workstation also. Everything needs time to dry.
The finished cake topper. Here's the pond and lily pad with the two cute froggies, their ladybug friend and a few cat-o-nine tails behind them on their pond.
I have never "blogged" before, so bear with me. It's always been an option on my website, but I never had any interest in doing it. I have the website and my Facebook page to show my items - and those take a bit of time to keep updated - but once I created these little guys I thought it would be fun to write a little more about them and show some close-ups. So, this is how I began to think about writing my FIRST BLOG!
I was asked to do "Dinosaur" Cupcakes for a child's birthday party. The mom loved some barnyard cupcakes I did a few months ago and wanted something for her dinosaur crazy son. She kind of left it up to me what I wanted to do and I came up with these.
I created some mini volcano's, piles of dinosaur bones, a few T-Rex's, some Triceratops, a few dinosaur eggs, a pterodactyl or two, a few "sea-monsters" - you get the idea. These were so much fun I wanted to share them. I just hope the birthday boy loves them!
It's me, Cheri - the author...
I've been baking for quite a few years now and some of my projects have been so fun! I work with my customer - sometimes they just provide me with a "theme" and sometimes they have specific ideas about what they want - but all are baked and decorated with my customers suggestions and ideas in mind. I wanted to start this "blog" to occasionally elaborate on some of my "funnest" (yes, I'm going to use that word) projects :-). These are those special projects that turned out exactly - or better than - I envisioned them! Happy baking everyone!!
