February = sugar shock!

I've been busy crafting with sugar lately, much messier than paper and glue...and the creations aren't quite so permanent.

My oldest turned 14 this month.
Wait. Wha?? How can that be? She was a baby just yesterday!
Isn't she beautiful? (And yes, those curls are natural, and of course she hates them)
She requested a Reeces Peanut Butter Cup Cake a la Pinterest,
and I was happy to oblige. 
I might add that we all needed an insulin shot after consuming this cake.
My son forgot to give me the note requesting me to make a decorated cake for the school bazaar. He gave it to me the day before said cake was needed.  After I flipped out at him, I pulled a late night to get this sucker done. It's blue because that is the color of fondant I had on hand, and the cheetah print is to hide all the bubbles in the fondant. Also, I had a custom cake order for cheetah print coming up and I had never done it before, so I used this as a practice run. Turned out to be much easier than it looks.
And this was a custom order picked up just last night. 
 The cheetah print is done in sparkly silver but it doesn't show well in the photo.
Oh, and the candle is just a cheepo dollar store purchase that I embellished a bit.
Did you know that stickles work on candles? 
 Such an easy way to add some extra bling!
My hubby's birthday is coming up next week, so one more cake to do this month.  But he has requested a cherry cheesecake, so it won't be nearly as time consuming as the others have been, and probably won't rate a photo op either.  I think he feels sorry for me, so he's giving me an easy one! Or maybe he's just tired of eating leftovers while I'm up to my elbows in cake?
Thanks for popping by,
I should have some paper crafty projects to share soon!


  1. WOWEE....Happy Birthday to your GORGEOUS daughter! I too am trying to figure out where the time has oldest will turn 17 this year...yikes!
    Your cakes are BEAUTIFUL, I see another of your creative strengths! I would love to see what you do with a cherry cheesecake!

  2. She sure is growing up, and it seems to happen so fast, doesn't it? My twin daughters will be turning 24 this fall... time flies (whether you are having fun or not! lol). I had forgotten that you made such fab cakes, and these ones are awesome. So fun! TFS
