Wednesday’s cakes

We decided that we needed some cupcake cakes to go out in our cake case today.  I did have a picture to go from for this one, but I made it a bit different.  I like my version better. 

 

I'm trying to put together a folder with designs that we can do that don't require kits, since they add $5 to the cost of a cake.  We call this design "Paint Balls".  I like to do them because each one is different.  Some of them get pretty weird.  For Halloween, I do a lot of them with just black or purple for a color. 

 

Here's "Tie Dye".  It works with a lot of different colors, although I like this combination best.  It doesn't work as well with whipped icing as it does with buttercream. 

 

I did this one just to use some blue icing that was out.  It took about 10 minutes, start to finish.  I'll be back at it again tomorrow.  May be too busy for pictures, but I'll try.

  4. Thanks! It is fun to do, too. With the tie dye and the paint balls, you never know exactly what you are going to end up with.

  5. Thanks! It is eye candy. My thought is if it doesn't look good, no one is going to buy it.

  6. Thanks! It is amazing what you can do with a little air brush spray and icing.

    It seems that your talent is never ending when it comes to cake decorating! Love the bug cupcakes!

  8. Thanks, Emjay! It's one of the areas where you have to keep getting better and keep coming up with new ideas. I like the challenge of thinking up new designs.
