Fondant!!  It's like Playdoh for grown-ups...
and I gotta say I'm officially addicted!!!

For sometime I have been ogling all of the cakes on TV and the internet.  You know the ones...Ace of Cakes, CakeBoss, Etc...  But, I was afraid of the stuff.

Not anymore!!!  It all started with sweet Ashley who was in the hospital.  I couldn't decide what to make her so out came the fondant, and this is what I came up with...
She loves lizards, bugs, and all things outdoors.  Pretty cute!!

The cupcake toppers are too fun!!

This was for a little girl named Journee.
I love how bright and fun this turned out.
John's birthday of course!
 The twins cake for at home with just us!

My favorite so far...for the twins 7th birthday!
 I just did this one yesterday for a bunch of "cute as can be girls" who aced their
way all the way to the championship in volleyball.  Way to go Purple Thunder!!

Easter Eggs

Eggstravagant Easter Eggs

Because you like me need another project...

But wait... stop... don't pass this one up these eggs are stinkin cute, and super easy!!!
 Get your gear together:  Eggs of all sizes.  The plastic ones like you find at the "super" stores and "craft" stores.  (This purple egg was came with two smaller eggs inside!  Score!!) Paint brushes.  Hot glue gun of course.   Buckets or boxes for the sand.  Colored sand.  Glittered sand.  Modge podge.  Ribbon.  Stickers.  Doodads for your toppers...little chicks, flowers, grass, etc.  Tea cups to display your eggs.

(I forgot to take pictures along the way...I hope this makes since!)

1.  Coat the spot on the egg where you are going to put the sticker with modge podge, and slap the sticker on the spot.  Then cover the the top of the sticker with modge podge.  Set this aside and let it dry.

2.  Then pour the sand and glitter sand mixture you are going to use to cover your egg in a box or plastic tub (I like to do this outside if we are not having tornadic breezes on the hill because it can be messy).  Once your sticker area is dry put a thin layer of modge podge all over the rest of your egg leaving an oval around your sticker area.  You don't want the sand to cover up your sticker.  Then hold your egg over your container and using your hand cover your egg with the sand mixture.  Tap off any excess.

3.  Sit your egg on a coffee cup or other item to keep it stable so you can work on the topper.  Hot glue ribbon up both sides of your egg and add a bow at the top.  Then I usually start with Easter grass and hot glue it to the top for a nest.  Then I just add little chicks or flowers to fill it in. Voila!!

Tell your friends that they took hours to make and they will be very impressed with your artistic abilities!

Rubber Ducky Cake Balls

Rubber Ducky Cake Balls
A friend at school said, "I need some cake balls for my granddaughter for Valentine's Day."  No prob!  I'm thinking red and pink chocolate hearts...ya know, Valentine's Day.  Then she said, "Her favorite things in the world are the like the yellow rubber ducky that's what I want!"  And with that she turned around and walked away.  Hmmm....Rubber Ducky Cake Balls...


If you can think it...I can bake it...Quack! Quack!

Stay Warm!!  One Crazy Mama

Valentine Cake Balls

Happy Valentine' Day!!!

Snow Day

Snow Day!!!

If you haven't heard the entire DFW metroplex has been blanketed with biggest amount of snow in the history of the world or Channel 5...depending on how you look at it!  At our house we measured 10 inches...12.5 inches at DFW airport.  That's impressive!!  And, we have done nothing but play, have snowball fights, sled, shovel the driveway (totally overrated in my opinion), drink hot cocoa, and do laundry (another highly overrated chore in my book)!!!!  We got to skip school on Friday, and since we don't have school on Monday...thankyou very much to the Presidents we are left with a fabulous 4 day weekend.  Which I think would make society a happier place if all weekends were 4 days!  Just tellin it like it is!!
Here are a few pics of our Winter Wonderland!!

Cake Balls Baby!!

Cake Balls Baby

Dallas Cowboy be exact

Have you made cake balls yet??  Have you eaten a cake ball yet??  Well, if the answer to either question is NO we need to talk.  
#1.  They are delish.  
#2.  They are just about the cutest darn baked good around.
After discovering them on (get there fast) about a year ago I have been completely smitten with these little delights.  You can make them in any shape that you can dream up...more on that to come.
This week a friend asked me to make them in the shape of the Dallas Cowboy's Football Helmets, and I just couldn't wait to show you how they turned out...
