Well Halloween is this weekend and this is my last Halloween themed cake for this year.   I forgot how fun Halloween can be.   I still have so many other ideas in my head for cakes, so hopefully I will get to work through a few of them next year.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Cookies

I made up 5 dozen Halloween cookies to package up for the kids at daycare and to send to son's school this week.    It's hard to tell in the picture but there is a little spider on the web cookie.

Halloween Toffee Apple

Yummy!!  Doesn't this cake make you just want to take a big bite?   Today I was able to enjoy being a student in one of Andrea Sullivan's workshops.   She has amazing sugar skills and I love being able to learn new tricks from her and always walk away with an amazing cake.

This cake was so much fun to make and I can see changing it up slightly for different designs and seasons.  

All the candies on the board are hand made and edible.

Happy Birthday James

This was a fun little cake for a special little guy turning 1.    This little guy has had lots of challenges in his first year, but he was a strong little man and after a much needed surgery he is doing terrific.   It's great to see him playing and just being a little kid, so I couldn't think of a better cake for him then a fun toy.

Gobble, Gobble

My son was over the moon to see these cookies this morning.   I told him I would make a special treat to send with him for Thanksgiving, so he was thrilled that Mommy came through.     So 20 little turkeys are being enjoyed today in a JK class

I have been wanting to make a Hay Barrel cake for some time now.   Of course a barrel of hay on it's own would be pretty boring so I had to make a scarecrow and a few pumpkins to liven up the cake.   I have fallen in love with this little guy, he has brought a smile to my face over the last few days while he has been drying on the counter.

Okay, so I am over the moon excited right now.    I am a member of the Canadian Cake Decorators can find their info down the right hand side of my blog to go check them out.    They held a raffle today for a Cake Safe.   I bought my 4 tickets 2 weeks ago as this has been in my long wish list of products to have.

I just found out that I am the lucky winner of this $500 valued Cake Safe.   WOOHOO

So I will be going on a little road trip soon to go pick it up and can't wait to play around and finally be at ease while I make cake deliveries. 

Would you eat it?

Okay so my step father and I have lots of fun teasing each other all the time.   At a family birthday party in August he was teasing me about what kind of cake I should make for his birthday.   I shot off with a quick response saying he would get a piece of S***  He of course laughed and said "Ya, right.  I dare you" 

So I thought about it for about a week and thought he deserved much more then one piece.   So below is his very delicious Banana Cream Cake.

Happy Birthday Gerry!! 

If you are a little twisted like I apparently am, this would make a fun cake for a Halloween Party.   Rather then cake, have it all cupcakes underneath and see how many party goers are brave enough to dig in :)

Oreo Cookie Turkeys Tutorial

Make these cute little treats for Thanksgiving.  Little ones just love these guys.
They are easy to make, but give yourself a couple of hours to complete them. 

To start out you will need:
Oreo Double Stuf (the regular ones will not allow you to put the candy corn in)
Candy Corn
Resse Mini Cups or you can get mint and caramel for those with nut allergies
A pipping bag with a number 3 tip and some icing (you could also put a small hole in a baggie with icing)

Each turkey requires:
10 Candy Corn
2 Cookies
1 Mini Cup
1 Whopper

Use a bit of icing to attach your 2 cookies together.  I suggest doing all your cookies first so the icing can harden a bit before you start attaching stuff to the cookies.
 Take 6 candy corns and push them gently into the cookie.  You may need to put a little bit of icing into the cookie first so they stick better.
Put a bit of icing onto the bottom and back of the mini cup and apply to cookies.
 Cut the tips off of 2 pieces of Candy Corn. Set the tips aside as you will need them later.

Attach the 2 Candy Corn you just cut as feet, using a little icing as glue.
Attach the Whopper onto the cup by putting a little icing on the bottom and back of it.  Yow will need to hold it in place for a few seconds.
 Take the remaining 2 Candy Corns and attach them to the top of the mini cup on either side of the whopper as arms.
Take one of the little pieces that you cut off for the feet and attach it to the whopper as a beak.   Then use your icing bag to make 2 little dots as eyes.
  Put a little bit of blue food colouring into a bowl and use a tooth pick to add blue eyes to your turkey. 

 Your finished!  Watch the kids faces light up as they enjoy these little guys.
