Santa Hat cupcakes!

They're not anything special, but here are my Santa Hat cupcakes!

I wanted the red to be more vibrant, but I ran out of red coloring - maybe next year!

Christmas cake!

This Christmas, I decided there was no better gift than cake!

I started with a three layer checkerboard cake. 

I covered the top with Christmas sprinkles. 
They were red, white and green with a few snowflakes and trees.

From there, I used the #5 star tip to make swirls all around the entire cake and top edge. 

I spent a couple hours staring at it until I decided what it needed...
Pom Pom Appetizer Picks!

I used them around the edge of the cake, a few in the center, and a few at the bottom of the cake.

This is how it looked inside!
I think the checkerboard is awesome!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays!

My fridge is full and I'm exhausted but tomorrow is CHRISTMAS! 

I'm so thankful for all the wonderful people I have in my life, and I hope you all are too! I have been truly blessed with such supportive family and friends. Thank YOU for visiting my blog and helping me become the baker I am today. This blog is my home away from home and I'm so happy I'm able to share my joy of baking with others.

I hope you all have a great Christmas and enjoy your time with your friends and family!

Butterfly Cake

Here's the ending result of my upcoming surprise!

I started with this Butterfly pan and outlining the major designs on it with a #3 solid circle tip.

Next, I filled in the torso of the butterfly with the #16 star tip.

I forgot that I had wanted one of the designs to be solid frosting, so I had to wipe off the outlining and frost with the blue icing. I also did the yellow with a #5 star tip.

I had to re outline the blue now that I had wiped it.

I did the green area with the same #3 solid circle tip by just doing dots in a line. 

Lastly, I finished the cake off in pink with the #16 tip. 

Hope you like my Butterfly cake, I sure was proud of it! :)
Stay tuned for my good news coming in the next month or so!
