I MAY NOT HAVE A GREAT BLOG, BUT I'M PRETTY SURE NO ONE ELSE HAS THIS CAKE ON THEIR BLOG, OR ANYTHING LIKE IT. MY DAUGHTER WANTED ME TO MAKE HER SWIM COACH RYAN, WHO TURNED 31 TODAY ON HALLOWEEN, THE 31ST OF OCTOBER A CAKE THAT INCORPORATED ALL THAT PLUS SWIMMING. WE CAME UP WITH A JACK-O-LANTERN-OR A RYAN-O-LANTERN WITH SWIM GOGGLES WEARING A GOLD MEDAL WITH THE NUMBER 31 AND A RIBBON WITH HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN AND GO AAY(OUR SWIM TEAM). I SERIOUSLY THINK ALL CAKE DESIGNERS SHOULD BE 9 YEAR OLD GIRLS-OK, MAYBE NOT.
HERE'S THE CARD MY SUPER TALENTED GRAPHIC DESIGNER, PHOTOGRAPHER HUSBAND MADE TO GO WITH THE CAKE-ALL AROUND A PRETTY COOL GIFT I THINK
I MADE THESE LITTLE HALLOWEEN CUPCAKES FOR MY DAUGHTER TO TAKE TO SCHOOL TODAY. MOST ARE OUR FAVORITE, BROWNIE AND CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE. THERE WERE A FEW YELLOW FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T EAT CHOCOLATE-WHICH I REALLY DON'T GET UNLESS IT'S A FOOD ALLERGY. I THINK THEY ARE PRETTY DARN CUTE.

My daughter had some friends over tonight, all from swim team except one. I gave them a little cake decorating class and this was their end product-really pretty good, though most of the cakes prior to the fondant looked pretty rough. They loved it. I think I could take it on the road for birthday parties.
My daughter is in the pink polk a dot shirt and has a purple mouse on her cake w/ cheese-of course.

I created this cake for a co-worker's daughter whose name is the same as my daughter-Kenzie(note:not McKenzie). The top is created using color flow icing technique I learned from this site. This is the first time I tried it, and although not perfect, I thinks it's pretty good.
