New Cakes

Well, I spent this last week doing two things, doing cupcakes with Heather and making a birthday cake for the neighbor's father's 90th birthday.
First the cupcakes. They were dark chocolate cake with a butter cream on top and the little 'B's" on top were stamped on fondant (thanks to Nicole for letting us use her stamps!) After someone was wondering what the B stood can be for BABY or for BOY...its up to you :) The cupcakes were for a baby shower for a girl in our ward, it was a lot of fun and the way you want a shower to go, quick games, quick food, good friends :)

Then I made this Birthday cake. It was a lot of fun to think up. My Neighbor said her father loved fishing and wanted a fishing type cake. It was white cake with a chocolate ganache filling and was covered in fondant.

I know it looks a little bare but there were a few more elements to the cake too. There were two really cute oars to put in the boat and then there was the cutest fishing pole that I put a fishing line on and then my neighbor brought over her fathers favorite fishing lure to attach to it and then I dangled it off the side like it was actually fishing away. It was a really cute cake. It was one of the harder ones especially since Heather wasn't able to help with this one. I find how much easier it is with two people.

On another note I am excited for this upcoming week. I am excited to work on some church things, hopefully clean out the garden beds, and take the kids to the park! If all goes as planned....which is probably wont....this week will be GREAT! I hope you all had wonderful weekends and mothers days, I sure did!!! Did I mention how wonderful my kids and husband are? They are fantastic.....I love them so much and they made sure my mothers day was great :)
