Schnauzer Pup-cake!

In one of my earlier posts I promised Amy that I would try and duplicate the Schnauzer pup-cake. Time consuming but I believe I got it done! Since I didn't have jelly beans I used a tootsie roll for the nose, and since I didn't have any fruit roll-ups my brilliant daughters told me to use laffy taffy!
I took a couple of pictures from start to finish. Starting with the base and the ears which are made of marshmellow dipped in pink sugar crystal candies.....

Then I went on and added a bit more......

If you are wondering what is beneath the piping it is half of a marshmellow!

The piping took the longest to do!

Do you see his lil tongue sticking out!! ;p

Well I hope you like the pics of my Pup-Cake...More to come soon...Next project is a cupcake with the Monster drink logo for another person here at work! Then some coconut cupcakes with a Malibu meringue buttercream frosting on top....

Strawberry-chocolate chip cupcakes w/ milk chocolate frosting

I said that I would make a cupcake every weekend and will stay true to that. This has no special decoration on it but I wanted to make some treats. Enjoy!

Once my goodies start to look better I promise better photos!

Mom's B-day cake

My mom's birthday was last weekend but we had her party this past Saturday. She requested I make any kind of cake just as long as it had pudding between the layers. I am very pleased that it turned out the way it did being that I had none of the tools to make perfect cuts, nor did I have an air brush machine but mamaged to do my best! I ended up making a 2 layer chocolate satin cake with cheesecake pudding topped with fondant. Looks like a cake for a kids but my mom didn't mind and I am glad. I am happy that I will be taking classes soon though!I need to master putting fondant on a round cake it was hard! Oh yes and the dots all over the cake were so not on point. I wanted to get to sleep so it was done in a hurry!
