Making Graduation gifts and thank you gifts for the teachers

What a fun treat to make for teachers as thank you's and for gifts for those graduates when you want to do something simple for several or a little something extra to go with the gift card or money.  Love a tasty treat!

Cupcakes to coordinate with a cake

 It's always fun when you have an order that isn't specific on what they want.  So for this one since I made this cute cake in the background I thought I would do the cupcakes for another order to coordinate.  They are white and chococolate marbled in the cupcake with buttercream frosting and some fun flowers to add that little bit of pizazz.

Ninjago Cupcakes

 One of the fun things about doing cakes is being kept in the loop of all the cool boy toys and cartoons.  I had to spend some time online figuring out what a Ninjago was to make these cupcakes.  They are half chocolate, half white all frosted with yellow butter cream than overlaid with fondant.

Happy birthday with a little fun inside

This cute little birthday cake looks simple on the outside but when the birthday girl cut into it, it was filled with yellow and blue polka dots.

Graduation Cupcakes

 When you attend a graduation to see that person you love on that great day this seems to see what you see when you look down at the sea of graduates. 
 We had fun with frosting, fondant, and cereal to make these tops of the heads of all these graduates. 
 This partially bald guy was my favorite.

 Call me for your special graduation cupcakes/cake.  I'd love to be a part of your special day too.

Pac Man

 I had fun doing these white cupcakes with chocolate frosting to look like a pac man board.  The accents are made with fondant.

sometimes things don't go the way you want them to

Even to someone who makes cakes/cupcakes/cake pops all the time there are days/weeks where things just don't seem to go right.  I was working on cake pops for a wedding, I was supposed to have 200 for the wedding.  Unfortunately it took me close to 450 cake pops to get the 200 un cracked ones. 
 So many a neighbor got to enjoy a few cracked cake pops. The frustrating thing is to know that you are doing things the exact same way you always do them, that you are using the same ingredients in the same way, yet for some reason it just doesn't seem to be working. I'm glad those are done and super glad when the next batch I had to do went off without any issues at all.
And if you drizzle another color on them it can cover many crack so neighbors don't hardl notice what's wrong.

Ducky Cake

Cake Reveal

It was so fun to do this cake reveal.  The mom and dad looked away during the ultra sound then delivered the envelope with the picture saying boy or girl to me.  I then made this cake with the appropriate color inside to annouce what they were having.  They gathered friends together and everyone watched as the mom cut into the cake to see what they were having. 

 Being a big sports family it was an easy choice to do a Blue vs Pink cake.  Especially when the house was pretty split on what was wanted. 
 But when the mom cut in and saw blue she screamed in happiness!  She won!  She got her boy!  So happy for her and her family.  So lucky to have been a part of such a fun way to announce to their friends and find out themselves what they were having.
 The cake is a white chooclate cake just colored with some blue coloring.

Ducky cupcakes

 When you don't know what you are having ducks are such a versitile baby theme.  Loved adding the football sprinkles to add a little of the mom's personality to these cupcakes.

Ducks in a variety of uses

Though these cakes/cupcakes were for different occasions it was fun to work on three baby cakes and to tie ducks into them all.  They are all white chocolate cake with buttercream frosting on the two cakes and whipped cream frosting on the cupcakes.  The water cake is colored pink inside for a mom of a new baby girl.  The football cake is colored blue inside as you will see about in the next post adn the cupcakes are a little of each.
