Mocha dream drizzle

Posted by Marilyn at 9:06 PM 0 comments

I was really bored and wanted something sweet, so this is what I came up with. Marble coffee cake with a mocha cream filling drizzled with chocolate. Now I hope, I'm not up all night with all this good stuff, because the "sweet queen" needs her sleep. LOL So my kids were even surprised that I made this for us, we usually eat scraps with milk. It's too nice I don't even want to cut it. But then it wouldn't be a sweet treat if I just looked a it. Well off to devour my new creation. Thanks for looking. You can look but you can't touch!

Kayla's cupcake tower

Posted by Marilyn at 11:55 PM 3 comments

Made this for my daughter's 8th birthday, ok so it's not a cake but a huge cupcake and a tower of cupcakes. I made the stand from scrap paper and it wasn't that hard to make. Just wish I could've made it a little bigger to fit more cupcakes. I made different flavors like, chocolate hazelnut, vanilla chocolate chip, lemon, confetti all with whipped topping in different flavors. They were a hit and pleased everyones sweet tooth. It looked so nice and colorful, no one wanted to believe the cupcakes were real. I didn't even want take it apart, but you had to eat them. Real fun thing to make I wish everything I made can be cupcakes from now on. LOL

Cupcakes in a box

Posted by Marilyn at 6:09 PM 0 comments
Well maybe it's just me but I like these. It actually fits 2 cupcakes and I stamped a little heart and added a red stripe to top front and bottom of box, made a tag and tied it with ribbon. Simple, but cute. Inside are red velvet cupcakes which by the way it's only because they are red that I used them, and cream cheese frosting with a little fondant heart on them and a red few sugar sprinkles. I didn't eat them because I had to take these pictures but now that I'm done I will indulge. You know this diet thing isn't for me I guess I should just start next month.

Here cupcake....

Who said cupcakes? These are normal still a bit small for me but they are supposed to be a normal cupcake size. Ha They are covered in marshmallow fondant and embossed with a rubber stamp. These so happen to be rubber stamps I have from my huge collection of, Stampin Up.The wrapper is also scrap paper I cut out and added a little organdy bow. So easy to do and cute too. I really thought that the fondant would stick to stamp but with the help of a little Crisco on the stamp it didn't. Ideas are endless if you want to emboss because there are so many stamps to choose from and you can wash them or rinse them when your done. These were new sets I hadn't used by the way on paper so I'll just set them aside for this purpose. Now the only one that I didn't emboss with a stamp was the multiple hearts with a red and pink heart that's just a small heart fondant cutter. I still like the other effect. I will post a how-to do this after this post to give you an idea. Thanks for looking.

Getting ready for Valentines....

Posted by Marilyn at 1:04 PM 0 comments

Just made these and my little one just couldn't keep his little hands off them. They're mini red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese roses in a small heart bucket. This is a cute arrangement to give for those people who don't want chocolates. Well at least you don't feel that guilty because they are bite size cupcakes with all that frosting, well maybe on the other hand that's not a great idea. For me I would have to say a cupcake over a piece of chocolate. Well you cake lovers know what I mean.....come on....can I get an amen! So I have other Valentines things I have to get to so I hope hope you can savor them as you look. Hahaha
