Shades of Blue

So this past weekend was the complete opposite from the weekend before in terms of colour schemes. I ended up doing 3 baby shower cakes – all for little boys! All three were simple but adorable designs that would be perfect for any baby boy-to-be!

The first one was a jungle themed 1/4 sheet cake with fondant accents.  This one was a hit with the shower celebrants – so much so, I’ve had two requests to recreate this same design!

 

The second one was a little price theme – this one was a single layer 10″ cake with a crown and polka dot accents.  I did little crown shaped sugar cookies with fondant icing to coordinate. Cookies are such a fun baby shower favour – who doesn’t enjoy an edible treat?!

CD 3

The last one was a single layer 12″ cake with fondant feet and polka dots. The pitter patter of tiny feet….

CD 5

I think it’s so funny the way certain themes or styles all tend to get ordered at the same time!  Let’s see what other trends are to come later this year!

With best wishes for a “sweet” day!

Halloween Goodies Galore!

My friend Parsley Sage from Deep Dish Cayman  is a part of a baking club and their October challenge was to do Halloween themed cookies.  This proved to be a real challenge for her (although her Paranorman cookies looked great to me!)…thus enters – ME :).  She invited me over to do some Halloween themed cookies with her, and it turned into a really fun little tutorial! 

You can see her full post here: http://thedeepdishcayman.com/baking-club-halloween-cookies/#comment-5616

And the video tutorial here:  [youtube=http://youtu.be/XygebQix2Eo]

Parsley even tried her hand at decorating one of the gingerbread men cookies gone ghoulish, and made the most adorable mummy!  These are perfect for a home “cookie” to try – nothing too fancy – just simple and DELICIOUS! Parsley has some amazing blogs on her site – she’s definitely worth a visit! http://thedeepdishcayman.com

Then I started thinking about some other Halloween goodies I could do besides just cookies – so the next day, I went home and made some simple cake balls – these were a hit with my neighbours’ kids – so who knows what goodies await the trick-or-treaters this year!

 

What kinds of ghoulish goodies do you plan to whip up this Halloween?
