So sorry for the extended break. I cleaned my house a couple weeks ago and after I do that I can never find anything. This time the thing I couldn’t find was my computer to camera cord. But I found it finally and here we are!
Along with my wedding cake/cupcake duties this fall, I found myself also making a couple of birthday cakes for some very grown up one-year-olds. The first was for my nephew, who had a birthday in August (so this picture is seriously overdue) and the second was for a friend’s daughter who had her birthday just last week. For my nephew’s party, there was a monster theme, so I created a little green monstery smash cake – with slightly lopsided eyes, it seems – and then a larger orange one for those of us who use forks (it should go without saying that I am sure his parents were cleaning green icing out of everywhere for days). And for last week’s there was a sock monkey theme, and she wanted a little cake and then cupcakes for everyone else. I am no artist, but I did my best to draw a little monkey on the smashing cake in royal icing. It was fun, and I think both turned out quite well.
