Gumball Machine Cake

Had fun making this cake recently for my husband.  I got him a real gumball machine for Christmas a couple years ago and he was like a kid again.  He still uses it every day.  I thought this cake really suited him! It was 5 layers of a delicious Red velvet Cake that was so moist.  I will definately put this cake in my list of favorites!

Baby Boy (yellow and blue) Shower

This past week I had the pleasure of preparing lots of goodies for a baby shower.  It was for a little boy who will be born in August.  I was honored to make the shower cake below.  I love any cake with polka dots, they add a lot of color and are just so kiddish.  I love the little fondant booties that just make me think of the little feet that are coming…

I had some cake batter left over so I finished it up with some simple cupcakes with store bought embellishments.  They were super simple but a nice accompaniment to the cake in order to serve more guests (if needed).  I personally prefer cupcakes to cake  because I LOVE frosting and I get a lot of bang for my buck so to speak.  I know there are other frosting lovers out there so I like to give options.

I also prepared cookies for this shower as an extra little sweet treat in the shower theme colors of blue and yellow.

One of my favorite projects for this shower was a centerpiece  I made of a diaper trike.  Puppy theme diaper trike: contains 120 diapers (size 1 and 2), 3 receiving blankets, two bibs, two baby washcloths, 1 fleece blanket, 1 stuffed animal, 1 two handled bottle and two pairs infant socks.  The bibs had puppies on them too.  The whole thing was just too cute and a great centerpiece and conversation starter.

If you know anyone having a shower and you need some sweet treats or a great centerpiece then give me a call.  Still working on the photo quality and hope to give you better visuals soon

I have some fun things planned this week but my daughter gave birth to my second granddaugther last night and I don’t know what the next couple days hold.  Will share some yummy goodies soon though.
