How fun are these twilight cupcakes?! Brandon's cousin Sarah is having a twilight themed birthday party (they're gonna watch the movie that's coming out). She wanted cupcakes that matched the book covers so I made a dozen of these. They took a lot of time but were fun to do so I hope she loves them like I do! Now I'm dying to read the books. I better get a move on on that... haha.

Dr. Kelly's Celebration Cake

Brandon's cousin Kelly just graduated with her doctorate in psychology. I made this cake for her party at Monteray Bay this past Saturday. I stepped off the plane at 10:00 in the morning and had the cake done by 6! It was a miracle. It's double chocolate fudge cake with chocolate chips, chocolate buttercream frosting, and chocolate fondant. This was chocolate heaven!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

It was little Sam's all about me this past friday so I tested out a Red Velvet cake recipe in cupcake form to bring in for his class. They are topped in traditional vanilla buttercream not the cream cheese frosting because not all little kids like the cream cheese type. Anyway, they were a hit and the recipe is now a new one of my favs!

Death by Chocolate Layer Cake

3 layers of devil's food cake filled with dark chocolate ganache. Frosted in cocoa frosting and covered in pirouettes. I wasn't home for Dad's birthday so I made this for him last night as a belated treat. I'll post a pic of the inside if I get a chance. We have yet to cut it but I'm dying to try it! Yummm!
