My Cricut Cake arrived!

After much thought and heavy consideration I purchased the Cricut Cake. I'm really excited. Though it looks really difficult to get a handle on. It has a ton of buttons. I purchased the cake bundle from so mine came with two cartridges, cake basics and fabulous cakes. I quickly tried to make a small flower but the fondant wasn't hard enough. (seems I have to put the fondant in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to cutting images.) I am going to wake up bright and early tomorrow and try my hands at some New Years cupcakes. I will post my success or disasters on here shortly.

Cupcake Bouquet

I've been really busy with the holidays but I still have a lot of nice ideas to put together. I just put together a cupcake bouquet an think it came out quite nicely. I will add it to the online shop soon enough. I think it's perfect for Valentines day, Mother's Day or any day you want to say "I Love You."

Whipped cream for adults only!

It's official, I've fallen in love with a new whipped cream...WHIPPED LIGHTING! After seeing a special on television about this new whipped cream I was astonished. It claimed to have 16.75% alcohol and be 33.5 proof. So I went out and bought three different flavors, Vanilla, chocolate and Caramel. All three flavors were delicious. The caramel definitely had more of an acohol kick to it while the chocolate had the most delicious intense flavor. The vanilla was also tasty and I think it'll be my first choice when trying to come up with a cupcake to try it with. yummm!
