Winner, Published, Turkey Cupcakes and a Cake!



First I want to announce my winner (that random.org drew) from the OCL blog hop.  Would Ashu93 (Ann Shuman) please come on down. You are the lucky winner of Tree-mendous Love!  Thanks to everyone who left comments.

Published you say? I happen to get this magazine in the mail yesterday: VSNcover Hmmmm Only reason I would be getting a copy was if I was published. So I sat right down and look what I found:  (top right hand corner)VSN1

So last night was my last cake decorating class for the Basic class. We had to bring in a cake already iced, drop flowers if we wished (that we had made a few days before to harden). We learned Ribbon Roses.  I didn’t have a plan on how I was going to decorate it so I just kind of “threw” everything on. Not really how I would have liked it to look but since we made the roses in class, they weren’t hard enough to move if we didn’t like where we placed them. This was my first time making roses!

So here is my finished cake: rosesclass1

Close up of the roses: rosesclass

So my son’s class is having their Harvest party today. I (for some odd reason other than I’m CRAZY!!) volunteered to bring in cupcakes. now usually I make a cupcake cake with a buttercream transfer but I always ask my kids what THEY want me to make for their class.  Well Benjamin decided no transfer so I found turkey cupcakes online and he liked that idea.  I couldn’t find the exact things that others used so I went with rainbow twizzlers and Vienna Fingers.  

Cupcakes are Cookie Dough Cupcakes.

Here is half of them as I had to make 24!


       Thank you for stopping by!
