I made a dozen sunflower cupcakes for our housewarming party and these were all that were left by the time I remembered to take a picture. I guess they were a hit. I used oreos as the center and vanilla frosting tinted yellow and orange to make the leaves. They sure brightened up the party.

I made these shark infested cupcakes for my husband Dave's 30th birthday. I learned that fruit leather and fruit roll up are 2 completely different things while I was making these ones. The life preservers and sharks didn't come out quite the same b/c of my mistake, but I think the sharks look pretty cool all the same. Happy Birthday honey!!

I've been talking about baking and decorating for a long time now and finally after seeing the work of a friend, Jacqueline Ngo (formerly Nguyen), I've become inspired to work on it more and document my progress. In a short time she's become so amazing and I only hope I can be half as good as she is. It also helps that we moved into our first house 6 weeks ago and it has a sweet kitchen. Right now I'm working on my entry for a cake contest put on by Threadless Tees. It's going to be a daisy. It's my first contest ever and while I'm not doing it to win, it is great practice and of course a great treat when it's all done.
