So this is what I've been up to lately. I experimented with Wilton sugar sheets and was pleasantly surprised. After my experience with Duff's cake tattoos, I was a little bit hesitant to give the sugar sheets a try. To my surprise they were easy to use, shiny, and not at all brittle. I achieved this awesome design by using my Martha Stewart filigree punch. Thanks for looking!

Well I officially grossed myself out with this cake order. Cupcakes adorned with bloody ears, fingers, brains and slimy wiggly worms accompanied my take on a Zombie Cake. This cake was requested for a Zombie party celebrating a young boys 3rd anniversary being diagnosed with diabetes. It was a reduced sugar chocolate cake with oreo buttercream and dark chocolate ganache. The cupcakes were pumpkin spice with cream cheese buttercream. The face was made by applying modelling chocolate over a paper mache skull purchased at Michael's. This was my first time making modelling chocolate and I think I'm in Love! It was so simple to make and cuts like a dream. Easy peasy! I also tried the jello worm recipe seen all over pinterest. All you have to do is mix up a batch of flavored jello with 3 pouches of unflavored jello, 3/4 cup of heavy cream and 3 cups of boiling water. Let cool and pour into bendy straws. Let set and wiggle them out of straw. They look so realistic and look oh so gross!!! Well thanks for looking. My computer has a stinking virus so I'm typing this from my phone. I will post links in a later blog entry! Blessings friends!

I was honored with the opportunity to bake this cake and cupcakes for a bridal shower. The cupcakes are White Chocolate Raspberry and Caramel Apple. I had so much fun with this order. Although after a while I was tired of making ruffles. Thanks for looking!

- Be sure to use "food safe" wire, preferably 22 gauge
- The wire should not come in contact with food. Place wires in coffee stirrers with a bit of royal icing.
- Roll fondant very thin in order for stars to stay put on wire.
- Allow fondant stars to dry out a bit before placing them in cake.
