Little Piggy Cake


I used a 9 inch for the bottom layer, a small spring form for the middle, and the top half of a cupcake for the nose. I used the bottom side of large chocolate chips for the eyes. I found the cardboard cake holders at Walmart (4 for$4). 

Personalized Mini Martinelli Bottles (party favor idea)

I made these personalized labels for mini Martinelli's bottles as a party favor for my grandparent's anniversary celebration. I just designed them on powerpoint, printed them out on regular paper, and taped them over the real label. I bought the mini Martinelli bottles at Walmart in the juice aisle.

Anniversary Cake


I made this cake for my grandparents 60th Anniversary Party. It was a triple layer (though each layer was single) with a 14" base. Bottom layer was carrott, middle was chocolate, and top was lemon. It was the first time I did the swirl roses and they were super easy! I just found a video on youtube and showed me how to make them. I did a cream cheese buttercream frosting which was too soft to work with but tasted good so I will need to look for a better recipe in the future. The cake has lots of flaws (I masked some of them by sprinkling a coarse sparkly sugar over the cake) but I think it turned out well and I learned a lot for the future while doing it.
