This is one of my favorite cakes that I have done!!!  I had so much fun making it!  This birthday cake was for a teenager turning 14.  She had her birthday party at a Mexican restaurant.  I used an 8" round yellow vanilla cake that I just cut in half and covered in fondant.  All the toppings are fondant.   Lots of fun!!!

Creepy Crawly Bugs!

Our church had a picnic and I thought these cupcakes were very appropriate for the occasion!  I made peach cupcakes with a yummy peachy cream cheese filling and butter cream frosting.  I made the bugs out of M&M's and black frosting.  The kids loved them!  Especially the little boys, they went straight for the spiders. 

Golf Cupcakes

I actually made these cupcakes for a church potluck, not Fathers Day.  I love the idea of cupcakes decorated more like a cake, so I thought I'd try my hand on a golf course cake.  I'm also experimenting on fillings with more of a local flavor, so I made chocolate cupcakes with a Hopia (coconut) filling.  I used my butter cream for the frosting.  My husband says that I don't have the Hopia quite right.  That I should make another batch.  But he had no problem scarfing down two of them and going back for a third (there was none left).   I'd have to agree with my taste tester.  Another batch it is!
