Jungle Themed Baby Shower

Another jungle baby shower cake!  This is the first cake I've made since having my baby, so I was very nervous about being a little rusty.  Fortunately, the cake gods were watching down on me and this cake was a breeze.  NOTHING went wrong.  Bottom tier is chocolate and the top tier is vanilla and according to my husband, both cakes are the best I've ever made (he gets to enjoy all the scrap pieces).  And I've now realized that I really need to get back into this, even if it's just making a cake at home.  I think maybe I'll start making some fake cakes, just so I can keep up the pratice.

Disney Princess Cake

I made this a while ago and just never got around to blogging about it because I had a baby and then have just been living very crazy and tiring life of a SAHM of 2u2.  But finally here is the Disney Pricness Birthday cake.  Made this cake for our friends Karen & Dave's little girl's 2nd birthday.  Karen sent me some pictures for inspiration and this is what I came up with.  Before you even ask, yes, the brick or stone, whatever you want to call it, is all done by hand one at a time.  I know there forms and tools to make brick work very, very easy, but this is something that I tried out for a castle cake and really loved the way it looked, so I decided to do it again for the princess castle.  It takes way too long to do, but again, I just love the way it looks!
