Epic Failure

Some times you have to crack a few eggs to make an omelet... or whatever!!!!!!!!

Maybe I was getting a little cocky from my awesome Easter Egg or maybe I was exhausted after putting a 7 month old to bed and starting the cake at 8pm (my bedtime), or maybe some times you just fail and learn from it and will do better next time!

This was supposed to be a retirement cake for a friend moving to Florida so I thought blue fondant for the water and sandy beach for sitting and sunbathing!!!

Lessons Learned: 
1. Don't save fondant- even when they say it will stay- it doesn't.  I used two week old fondant that was in a ziploc and it cracked when I put it on!

Cracked Fondant

This was the sandy beach area but it looked terrible so I covered it with chocolate!
Delicious graham crackers for sand underneath the chocolate

This cake is dead to me! STILL tastes good!

What I wanted it to look like.................
I am encouraged to get back on the horse and try again!- Megan Eileen

Birthday Happiness

Today is my birthday and my dad sent me these pictures of the cutest little guys!  I have a thing for weird little creatures that are cute (so no mice or voles- oh how i loathe the voles!)

The top three pictures are Porcupines which I will call Porcus.  I never knew porcupines were so cute as babies.  Have you ever seen a baby porcupine?   Supposedly, their quills are not hard and sharp when babies – makes sense.


This is a beaver!

PEACE OUT and have a great day! <3 Meggers

Cake Pop People- Paul Edition

Hi All.  I need to start this blog by saying- we are going back in time!!!

I should have posted the Paul pops first because they are a far cry form how much better I got with Ian pops!  Sorry Paul!!!  I did not have eye sprinkles yet and I did not realize how good fondant looked as hair yet.  I had to improvise.  And GEEPERS my photography skills also leave alot to be desired!  But this is how you get good at things; try, try again!

Poor Paul! Those eyes are crazy!
Enjoy!  I wish I had a close up for you-- or do I? MEGAN

Cake Pop People- Ian edition

When my friend Chuck left the office I work at to work somewhere else, I tried to think of a good send off and what is better than to be immortalized as your very own cake pop!!!  I can not find any pictures of Chuck as a cake pop- I will search high and low for you though!  But it became a semi-tradition.  Here are pictures of Ian Cake pops.  The side by side is the best and please make sure to note the diamond earring on real life Ian and Cake pop Ian. (special silver sprinkle)- Peace- Megs

Cake Pop Creatures

Since cake pops have become popular they started making sprinkle eyes and wow they are magical!!!  It makes little creatures so much easier!  Bakerella is an inspiration.  She started it all

Easter Egg Cake

This was one of the funnest cakes thus far!! I was so cheap that I refused to buy an egg shaped baking pan- so instead I made two 8" x 8" cakes.  I stacked them and froze them.  Once they are froze it is super easy to shape into an oval!!  I made sure to learn from the baptism cake and make the fondant thicker.  Thicker fondant helps hide all the imperfections of the cake!!-Luv Meg

Fondant shaped feet and pretzel rods!

The close up!-sort of reminds me of the wicked witch's
feet when the house fell on her!

Poor lil fella!  It was bound to happen!

Baptism Update

I could not help myself with the powdered white donuts-
they matched my theme and when else do
you get to buy 4 boxes of the delicious treat

Blue Fondant- Easy to cute

Carissa! took the time to shape a cross with individual sprinkles!
Martha would be proud!

Because I threw my back out the day of my son's Baptism I was not on top of my photography!!!  But alas... my good friend Maria took photos of the great cupcakes my friends Carissa and Alexandra helped make (in line with the color theme of course because they are as OCD about party designs as I am!)
