Ethan’s tractor cake was a big hit. Such a big hit, he did not want to cut it but wanted to play with the tractors on top of it. It was delicious too filled with a vanilla buttercream and iced with a decadent chocolate buttercream and then decorated with crushed oreos and green buttercream icing with a grass tip. It went very fast and was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures. If you have any questions, ask away!!!

There is still more to do, labels to make, but the majority is up. I am so happy to see the vision that was in my mind on the wall. I am sorry for the quality of the pictures but since it is in my hallway off my kitchen, it is a bit of trick to photograph. Across from it I have a regular paper calendar that I record milestones on to transfer into the kid’s baby books. As Spring is finally approaching this should work out great to organize the sports games, work schedules, and our appointments. I will let you know how it works out. Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.
We all know the cupcake is hotter than it ever was. With bakeries specializing in gourmet cupcakes, to gizmos and gadgets created to make these small cakes something much bigger than the kid’s class party staple. We even have reality shows that showcase cupcake baking. It seems like everyone is looking to reinvent the cupcake. I have so many great cupcake tools and bling to showcase in the next few weeks. These companies have also been so gracious as to sponsor give-aways so that my blog readers can have a chance to use these nifty gadgets. Let’s just say, I will be doing a lot of cupcake baking in the next few weeks. I am excited to show you some of the newest products to make your cupcakes stand out. So what is your favorite thing in a cupcake? Do you like to have pretty liners, tasty fillings, different flavors of cake, decadent frostings, or are you all about the decorating and presentation? Whatever you fancy, I am sure I have a product that will interest you. So keep this blog handy because we are going to have some fun with cupcakes!!!
Well, yesterday we took the little ones to see Santa. I will post about that by itself. We also shopped a bit, had dinner and got home very late. So I was really enjoying a day home to bake. I had made two doughs the other day and they were chilling. The first cookie I made was PB & J Thumbprints. but I only managed to get a dozen and a half into the freezer, they were so good. Next, I made my spritz dough and made several dozen and got just about everyone in the freezer because I worked fast! Then I wrapped a ton of presents while the babies napped. Got another burst of inspiration and took out my chilled gingerbread dough and cut out some men, women and children. I have them decorated and cooling completely and they will be packed away in the freezer as well. The other night I made the two sheet cake layers for Luke’s birthday cake and I made cupcakes. I froze them all to decorate on the eve of the 23rd. So a pretty good day for baking and wrapping. Christmas is coming up on us so fast, I cannot believe it. Well, I better get those Gingerpersons in the freezer before they get eaten. Hope everyone is getting everything they need to do done and not getting stressed out and forgetting the reason for the season.
