Harry Potter Hockey Mashup

Today (July 31) is Harry Potter’s birthday.  If he were real he’d be 35!  That makes Harry Potter older than me and I have to say – I’m ok with this!

My friend’s son in a huge Harry Potter fan, so for his 7th birthday, asked for a cake that incorporated two of his favorite things: hockey & Harry Potter – a bit of a challenge!

Thankfully, I had Hubs on deck as my Artist in residence and he immediately sketched up some Quiddich players sporting hockey gear!

After that, this became one of my favorite mashup cakes ever!

Hello Summer Chalkboard Cake

Happy Summer!

This happy little cake was for an end of school celebration for the teachers at my son’s school!  The cake was inspired by this one at My Cake School.

Honeybee Cupcakes

I’m popping in quickly today with these happy little honeybee cupcakes!

I wanted to take something fun with me to book club, so I brought some bright cupcakes that made me think of spring!

The cupcakes are lemon cake with cream cheese frosting.  Delish!

Minion Cupcakes & Lemon Cake

Who loves Minions??

I loved the minions in both Despicable Me movies, so when my son’s Cub Scout pack asked me to make minion cupcakes for their Blue & Gold Banquet, I was thrilled.  The theme was “Cub Scouts are One in a Minion.”

It was such a cute theme with some cute patootie minion cupcakes to go along with it.

The cupcakes were lemon cupcakes baked in blue cupcakes liners (recipe below or click for a gluten-free version and a boozy version).  They were lightly frosted in buttercream and then topped with MM fondant.  I had such a blast making the faces and giving each little minion his own personality!

TMNT Cupcakes

Where are my TMNT fans?

I’ve tackled TMNT Cookies and Cake, so it’s only natural that cupcakes would be next!

For these cupcakes, I took a more minimalistic approach add a blob of green buttercream for the turtle head with a little MM Fondant mask – with coordinating cupcake liners, of course!

Asteroids Cake

Who remembers the game Asteroids?

This year, my husband wanted an Asteroids cake for our combined birthday party.

I attempted to recreate the feel of the game console using a sheet cake with an angled round cake placed on top.

The cake was a Rich Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting (tinted black) with a few MM Fondant details.  I made the Asteroids and game score out of piped candy melts, however they broke so easily, that I’d use Royal Icing next time.

Teacher Appreciation Day Cookies

Since Dude started school, I’ve done everything I can to support our teachers.

My own background is in elementary education, so I have first hand knowledge of all that teachers do on a regular basis.

In addition to being room mom and a volunteer at our school, I like to show my appreciation for our teachers with cookies!
