Dallas Cowboys Jersey Cake

Last month, one of my friends asked me to make a Dallas Cowboys Jersey Cake.  Featuring Romo’s jersey – with lots of Band-Aids since he keeps getting injured.

I’m not sure how the recipient of the cake felt about it, but we sure thought it was funny!

Almost Take Off Cake

Last year I submitted this cake to a contest, but never got around to sharing it here!  It's still one of my favorites!

I've been wanting to make gelatin balloons for quite some time now, but never really had a reason. Then came threadcakes and the perfect cake design, Almost Take Off and I knew it was time!

I loved the hand painted, watercolor look to the design, so I wanted pull in the painted aspect while at the same time adding some dimension and whimsy and that's where the gelatin balloons came in!

I made the little balloons a couple days before the cake to give them ample drying time. They took about an hour to make - the most time-consuming part was blowing up water balloons (which were then dipped to make hallow, edible balloons).

Super Soft Sugar Cookies

Over the summer, my parents celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary!  And they were in town to see the kids play their summer sports, so I wanted to make them something a little special to celebrate!

S'mores Campfire Cake

I saw this idea for a campfire cake a while ago and I knew I had to make it happen!

My boys had a Cub Scout potluck and I knew it was the perfect opportunity to make the cake!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes

The leaves aren’t changing yet, but the kids are back in school, pumpkin spice latte is back in the coffee shops and fall is in the air!

Speaking of pumpkin spice, why not make some cupcakes?  I’ve made a few variations of pumpkin cake in the past.  The from-scratch version is here, the easy-peasy version here, and the chocolate version is here!

Baseball Stadium Cake

Spud’s 6th birthday was last month and he had a baseball themed party (see Amy’s Cooking Adventures for all the details!) complete with a baseball stadium cake!

For the cake, I baked up a chocolate cake in 8-inch square pans and coated it with buttercream.  After leveling the cake, I had these perfect slanted bits leftover that I placed on top to use as stands!  I covered the stands in fondant (pretty much the only fondant on the cake, since Spud asked for "no roll out frosting") and then cut pieces out so I would have a place to sprinkle nonpareils to represent the crowd!

Skydiving Cake

I made this skydiving cake for a good friend’s birthday!

My favorite part was actually making the simple sky background!  For that, I frosted the cake (orange cake by the way) blue and smoothed it.  Then I added blobs of white and smoothed again to create the wispy clouds.
