Art Party Cake

A few weeks ago a friend asked me about a cake for her daughter's 6th birthday...she loves pink and brown a LOT! But then I found out it was going to be an art party! So, I had some fun with this one...

We started off with sparkly pink zebra stripes...
 Then I got to work on some accessories!
 I hope she had a fabulous birthday!
This was a chocolate cake with chocolate filling and chocolate fondant...

The Creative Princess Strikes Again!

After going to the Baking and Sweets Show in Toronto the Creative Princess was VERY inspired! Such that she requested to have the honour of baking her BFF's birthday cake. She planned and she conspired...but when the time came, there just wasn't time!

SO we started again...and here is where we ended up!
Pink and brown sweetness!
Her BFF was one happy girl!
The next day was full of hugs and thank yous...I would be lost without these girls...they are so sweet!


PS. I DID help with this one...I did the flowers and the bows...she did the colouring, rolling and covering AND the polka dots of course!

And they call ME Martha!

There was NO stopping this birthday girl! She loved using the mixer!
And scooping the cupcakes!
And decorating them too!
We had a Hello Kitty Party...and since they decided to take home their cupcakes we even decorated boxes to bring them home in!
Aren't they the sweetest thing?
I hope she had a wonderful birthday! I sure had fun!


Halloween is still haunting me!

I have to apologize for my poor photo quality...I was having a lot of trouble with my SD Cards...I finally managed to fix the problem.  I reached back into my not so technical mind and got to thinking about defragmenting. I guess I take a lot of photos because all of my cards needed to be defraged quite desperately! 

Anyway...I went to this super-sweet family party not so long ago.

To which I brought these super-sweet hot chocolate spoons to share!

And we made some super-sweet Franken-patties!

Gosh, I use that punch a LOT!
But the real highlight for me? 

The super-sweet kids that were in attendance. They were there for their cousin's 2nd birthday and they were happy to sit down and do the crafts with fact, I dare say they enjoyed it!

I have strong feelings about this. I have been turned down flat by some boys in the past so I never get my hopes up but nurturing creativity is such an important part of our lives. I think that creativity is what gets you got me here didn't it?

Handmade Gift Series!

I am SO excited about November's HandMade Series! Oh my goodness! Did we ever have fun on Thursday (we ran terribly late but we got it all done!)  The Corker Bows were a huge hit but the felt flower and the wreath were fun too!
 This week's theme is jewelry. We will stamp washers and create bird nest charms...there should be time to try 2 of each.
November 17th we will create a Stationary set (complete with a sweet little case) that you can give to someone sweet!
 On November 24th we will make pie in a jar! I am SO excited about this. You can freeze them and then bake them from frozen! What a great gift for family and those single men in your life! ;) Or just to have on-hand for your family to enjoy!
Girls' Night Out is a relaxed evening full of camaraderie, chatter and crafting with girls from 7 to well, Grama CB comes but I won't disclose her age!

Oh and it's affordable too! Each workshop is $5-10 and you get to take something great home!

The Creative Princess

Sarah recently expressed an interest in decorating cakes for others and it seemed within moments she had her first real order! A Halloween Birthday Cake! She was so thrilled...

She made her pieces...
 Rolled her fondant and covered her cake...
 And then began to decorate!
 Here it is...
 And here is the cake mistress with her first cake order! What a girl!
We are so proud of all of our children...their creativity never ceases to amaze me!

Girls' Night Out - Halloween Series!

We had SO much fun in October!  From our paper crafts...
To wreaths...

and making messes!

And then? We cupcaked!

 And that was busy! But oh so much fun!
Want to know my favourite part? Having great company in my workshop every week and watching mother/daughter interactions. It was so fun!

I am really looking forward to November's Handmade Gift Series starting tomorrow! You should join us!
