Happy Halloween!

Cupcakes I made for work.


Happy Birthday Nicki!!

24 Mar

In class this week we made clown cakes.  I gotta say, I am not a big fan of clowns, but it was perfect timing considering it was my friends birthday at work. This wasn’t my favorite cake because the writing didn’t come out very good, and I don’t like the clown, but it still tasted good! Again the cake was just Funfetti from Pilsbury with Wilton butter-cream frosting.

Chocolate Cake with Whipped Strawberry Filling!

9 Feb

This week during the Wilton Cake decorating class, we learned how to make Butter-cream roses.  Since its close to Valentines Day I thought a chocolate cake with a whipped strawberry filling would be appropriate. =) Plus I love Chocolate!

1. I started off with two boxes (I wanted a tall cake…..if your pans are more shallow one box will be fine) of Pilsbury Dark Chocolate  Cake mix…just follow the directions on the box…let cool completely.

2.For the filling I just mixed together one container of Cool-Whip (thawed slightly) and frozen strawberries in glaze (thawed slightly).  Make sure the whipped cream mixture is chilled before you put it on the cake so that the top layer will be stable while icing the rest of the cake.

3. The icing is a Chocolate Buttercream recipe that I got right of the the Wilton website.

Pipe a wall of icing on the first layer to keep the whipped mixture in place and from coming out the sides.

Ice until smooth.

Add borders......

and flowers!





For the Hairem Girls!

2 Feb

So I went to my first class of the Wilton Cake decorating course.   We learned how to transfer photos onto the cake.  I was making this cake for the girls at work so I wanted to find a pattern that had to do with hairstyling.  In google images I came across this cute clip art of a hairdryer.

It was perfect! For the cake all I made was a Pilsbury white cake with Wilton Butter-cream frosting. Sorry I forget to take pics of the process of transferring the pattern onto the  cake…but you can find out how on the Wilton website.  Here is the final result. 🙂
