Cupcakes,Cupcakes and More Cupcakes

Last weekend a lady from work wanted me to make some Disney themed cupcake cakes for her little boys birthday. I had never done this before but as you all know, I am always up for a challenge. I made 2 cakes for her and individual cupcakes too. I was proud of them and just wanted to share them with you too.



I think Donald is my favorite. As you can tell by the picture, I put the cupcakes together to make the base of the cake and then I decorated the top. I drew the faces freehand and then filled them in with icing. For the individual cupcakes, I just iced them white and put a Mickey head silhouette on them.


Her little boy really enjoyed his cakes and I really enjoyed making them.

The Wedding and a Cake

Jamie and John Mark got married the last weekend of August and to say I was a busy chick is an understatement. Not only was I in the wedding, I made the wedding cake and cupcakes too. I felt like I was going to go crazy but I would not have had it any other way.


I don’t remember what was so funny but I was putting on the pearls that Eric gave me for our wedding day on Jamie for her to wear for hers. I cannot tell you how much this meant to me. Jamie was also wearing the veil that I made for her.


Here is a picture of the wedding cake. It was Red Velvet. Yum Yum. I wish I had a big piece of it right now.


This is the cupcake tower that the florist  made. She did a wonderful job with all of the flowers.


I ended up making 11 dozen cupcakes. There were strawberry with strawberry icing, carrot cake, Italian cream cake and yellow cake with butter cream icing. They were all a hit. I ended up with about 3 dozen left and only part of the bottom layer of the wedding cake. There was some cake eating fools at the wedding. I did have a lot of people tell me that they tried one of each.


We all had a great time dancing the night away. The next day we all went to Jodie’s house for the littlest member of the A-Team’s birthday.


We had a busy but a wonderful weekend.

August Update

Hello everyone, I am so sorry that I have been M.I.A. over the last few months. We have been busy around here but not with anything blog worthy.

The chicklets started school at the first of August.


They are loving school, but we are all having trouble getting back into the swing of things. Homework, reading, baths, hair, etc. We only had a few weeks of school with no afternoon activities before Awana started at church and girl scouts starts in a couple of weeks too. They also want to start taking violin lessons so our schedule is only getting busier.

Jamie and John Mark got married last weekend so I was busy getting ready for that also. I will blog on that this weekend too.

I will close this post with a few more summer pictures of the girls.
