Go Sox!

Got a request for baseball cupcakes, and fortunately for me the kid's a Red Sox fan!  There aren't many of us here in NJ.

I decided to make baseball sugar cookies with the "B" logo. But if you look, the little boy's name is in the middle.

Do you see it?

How about now?

I had no place on the cupcakes for the candles, so I made some candleholders. Cute, eh?

I hope that the kids liked them! They were chocolate cupcakes (super moist!) with buttercream and sparkly sugar under the cookies, alternating red and white.

It was a beautiful day for a baseball party in the park!
(I don't have a picture of that, but I might be getting one to add on later)

Cake #2 and #3, if you want to call it a cake

Got the second cake out of 3 done... this photo is deceiving. It's not very wide, but it's really tall for a little cake. Probably almost 8" high!  The sides were done to look like ruffles but my youngest kid said it looked like intestines. Yum. I should have taken better pictures, the "ruffles" looked like ruffles to me...

Note to self: stop leaving the camera in the car for the day job, and bring it in the darn house.

The last cake of the day, well... I obviously put zero effort into it. It's for the school fair's cake walk. I think I might write "TASTES BETTER THAN IT LOOKS" on it so kids will want to win it.
I think it looks like a freaky furry eyeball.

But it tastes YUMMY. I hope nobody wins it. I'll bring it home and eat it.
Bigger cake job coming up at the end of the week. Back to being an artist and not a slacker mom! 
Stay tuned.

3 Birthdays On One Day!

Update to the cake post below (should updates be above or below the original post??):
Someone got a shot of the birthday boy. Seems that no matter how old you get and how professional your career may be, party hats and superhero capes are always in order to make it a PARTY.

And now back to the post about his cake...

One cake down, 2 to's only 1:25 AM! Anyway, my camera is in the truck and it is really late, so cell phone picture will have to suffice. Yahwwwn.
Bill is bringing this one into the office to surprise someone who doesn't think anyone in the office knows it's his birthday. His lovely wife told us and of course, something must be done!

I like the art deco-ish detail, don't you?
