Been playing around in the kitchen alot this summer....  I made this for a 3-year-old Princess.  It was the only the second cake I had made for someone other than "family", so needless to say, I was a little nervous.  

 I made this cake for a friend's daughter in June.  Her theme was a flip-flop party, so I made her a flip-flop cake.  The flowers and flip-flops were made of gumpaste and the entire cake was covered in buttercream and a layer of fondant.

Another friend asked me to make a baby shower cake.  That was uncharted territory for me.  Up to this point, I had only done birthday cakes.  I had a picture of one I was dying to try, but didn't think it was actually possible for me to make it.  I was happy with how mine turned out, but I'll tell you...about two hours into it, I was kicking myself for agreeing to do it!!  The "belly" was made out of a half-ball pan and the "boobs" were made out of rice krispy treats.  It was covered with buttercream and a layer of marshmallow fondant.

Anna's birthday is August 1, but she will be in Peru.  When she gets back, she has planned a party with her best friend. They have a zebra and cheetah print cake picked out for me to should be a challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.  

Bye for now....
