Blocks in a Cart Cake

I made this cake for my nephew's first birthday this past weekend.  The blocks are sponge cake covered in colored melted chocolate.  The letters are cut out from sugar sheets.  The animal faces are molded sugar candies that I bought from a store.  The whole base of the cart is also sponge cake iced with Pastry Pride icing.  The wheels are sugar cookies also covered in melted chocolate and sprinkled with some colored sprinkles. The string for the cart is also cut out from sugar sheets.  So everything is edible!

Soy Sauce Chicken Wings

I make these Soy Sauce Chicken Wings regularly at home. It's simple to make and easy to eat. The kids and the dad love them. They are definitely best served hot when the skins are still nice and crispy.

Fruit Basket Cake

I made this cake for my sister's birthday. It has fruit filling and fruit toppings as you can see. It's a very very healhty cake. :)

Blue Paper Mache Cake

I made this cake for my niece's 10th birthday. My daughters, Athena and Sophia, helped decorate since it's for their cousin. We placed stripes  of blue food coloring into the icing bags. And we used a Wilton 2D  tip. The white icing picks up some of the blue color to create a very  pretty pattern.  It's easy for kids to apply the icing. A simple squeeze and pull creates a pretty fluff of blue and white. The cake  turned out looking very fluffy and I think very pretty!
