Alas, the hot weather will be coming to an end. Summer vacation over. School begins. See you later, August!

Giant Incredible Hulk Cookie
This year, The Avengers came out in theatres. How fitting that my co-worker's nephew wanted a Hulk cookie. Not any normal sugar cookie, but a HUGE sugar cookie. This one was about 10" so I had to put it on a 12" board. The royal icing covered the entire cookie, and I added edible marker details. Let's just say it was a smashing success!

Barbie Silhouette Birthday Cake
Dear Solmaz requested a cake for a little girl turning 1. I modeled the design after Bobbette & Belle's Barbie cake... simple silhouette with girly frills. I used hot pink, rather than baby pink.
The 3-layer chocolate cake was filled with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream.
Happy 1st Birthday, Kira!

Star Wars Birthday Cakes
Lucky Joaquin got two cakes for his 2nd birthday... a tiered cake with R2D2 and various fondant Star Wars icons along the sides, and a sheet cake with fondant Yoda. R2D2 was made of Rice Krispie Treats and fondant. Yoda is just plain fondant. The cakes itself was chocolate with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream (Yoda cake) and chocolate ganache (R2D2 cake).
Happy 2nd Birthday, Joaquin!
