Little monsters

A friend has asked me to make her sons birthday cake with the theme of Gabba Gabba.  After a bit of surfing I discovered that:

  • there are five of the them, but don't ask me their names
  • they can speak unlike the teletubbies and ickle pickle and macca pacca
  • they look really cute as cake pops

Getting spooky....

With the nights drawing in it was time to make some scary cake pops ready for Halloween.  What better than being able to eat an eyeball.  

DS had great fun in the playground with these.  Next time will make then with red velvet rather than chocolate so you get the full effect when you bite into them.
I'm sure someone's watching me cake pops
Two big googlie cake pop eyes

Then tried my hand at some skulls, but ended up with scream! cake pops instead

Teddy Bears Picnic

Had fun making cup cakes for my daughters long awaited teddy bears picnic.   Good excuse to try out the vanilla cupcake recipe from hummingbird bakery, though I must have done something wrong - not as light and fluffy as I had hoped. But the bears are cute and easy to make, having sort inspiration from sharon wee.....

Obviously I had to make one for everyone!
