Super hero's and pirates... Oh my!


Hello again.  As I said in my last post I was busy in the early half of August making a Spider Man cake for my nephews 5th birthday. It was done in fondant and butter cream frosting.  I found the Spider Man figure and car at Meijer.   I took a hint from a book of my sister-in-law’s and got crafty with my cake board by gluing a red satin ribbon around edge to help bring it all together.




This past week I did a pirate theme cake for a friend’s son, made of fondant and butter cream frosting.




The ocean was a half sheet cake swimming with gummy fish. 


The ropes and the cannon were created from fondant; but, for the sails I used bamboo skewers stained with brown food coloring and then I pierced them through parchment paper to create the sails.  



The cross bones were done with a foodwriter, while the treasure chest is fondant and filled with edible pearls. The boat cake was made from small oval pans, then carved, frosted with butter cream, and then covered in wood impression fondant.  


I hope you enjoyed my adventures with a super hero on the high seas! 
Until next time matey, arrrgh!

Bunny Tail Treats

Since the first day of March I've had my nose pressed to the window looking for signs of spring. Alas, it's Michigan; we've had three days of snow.  Finally, my patience paid off.  I'm happy to report that our spring flowers are poking out of the ground with a few blooming in the sunshine now.  Our neighborhood wildlife is on the move and visiting our yard.  Among them are a few bunny families, which inspired me for these Bunny Tail Treats for Easter.

Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.


On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.




As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…
