Asian Cake and Cupcakes

I asked for inspiration, I was told: Yellow. Asian Inspired. And this was the result. I really love how this cake turned out. The cookies were bamboo-esque, the vibrant yellow, the simple flowers, the fun fondant chopsticks, and the name in Asian inspired lettering (kinda reminiscent of my Avatar cake)

And 3 dozen cupcakes to match of course :)

Mini Cupcakes: Blue, pink, green & brown

Made these minis for a baby shower. I love how the colors turned out! Thank you Kuuipo Photography for the awesome pix!

Thing 1 & 2 Gender Reveal Cakes

Hi! Remember me? If you can't tell I've been a little MIA lately, sorta busy starting a different busy right now. Anyway, I haven't chEATed on my readers. I've still been doing some baking. I recently made mint brownies, chocolate cake with chocolate ganache, chocolate and toffee cookies, chocoholic cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries... I'm sensing a trend: CHOCOLATE!

I haven't been doing many cakes lately, but when I heard one of my very best friends in the whole world was having twins my response was something like this:

"congrats, I'm so excited!
can I do gender reveal cakes please!?!?"

This friend of mine already has 2 wonderful boys so we were all really hoping for a girl. For this reason she decided that she would find out the genders at the ultra-sound but it would be a surprise for everyone else (including her husband) at the party. I knew immediately I wanted to do Thing 1 and Thing 2 cakes and they turned out even better than I envisioned. And thank you to the other bestie for taking a decent pic of the cakes!

I didn't get a good pic of cutting into the Thing 1 cake, but the center was blue, meaning another boy for them. Here is the pic of the Thing 2 cake.

PINK! A girl! Woo-hoo!

I am so excited for this bestie to be having twins. I look forward to enjoying all the fun parts of twins with none of the hard part ;)


Sports Themed Cookie Pops

These were a "ball" to make.

Over the weekend I made around 150 cookie pops all with a sports theme for a little "all-star's" 1st birthday.

There were baseballs

personalized jerseys & footballs

basketballs and soccer balls

Oh the soccer balls... I hope you like them now because I don't think I'll be doing them again anytime soon. Trying to make pentagons with black and white frosting was a headache, I take that back, it was a BACKACHE. In the end they turned out so dang cute, and the cookie pop arrangement that was made using them were adorable.


Valentines 2012!

I had so much fun doing Valentine's orders this year. After 200 chocolate/toffee dipped strawberries, 10 dzn cupcakes, individual boxes, and several deliveries, Valentine's is over. The funnest part was people coming over and asking "do you have anything else I can buy?" Like a good organized chEATer I made lots of extras.

I found these adorable (food-safe) take-out boxes. They were so dang adorable and I love the peek-a-boo aspect of the above one.

This was a mixed order of the assortment that was made. Hope everyone had a wonderful love-filled Valentine's Day!


Simple Wedding Cupcakes

I was asked to make cupcakes for a small wedding recently. They ordered 2 dozen guava cupcakes, 2 dozen chocolate haupia cupcakes, and 2 dozen peanutbutter-cup-cakes. I was so excited to use the whole cupcake tower my hubba-bubba made me for Christmas and the whole thing turned out great!

As soon as people were invited to eat everyone headed straight for the cupcakes, and in a few short minutes they were gone. GONE. We had some serious cupcakes hoarding going on people. I had so many lovely compliments that evening and was so pleased to see people enjoy chEATday treats!


Prince & Princess Birthday Cupcakes

A couple weeks after my baby's birthday my older daughter turned 3! To help her celebrate I knew she wanted a princess themed party. We invited her little friends over and when we realized a good friend of hers was also turning 3 a couple days later we decided to combine their parties.

I was worried about the decor being to feminine so I stuck to a yellow crown for the cupcake toppers. I was so excited about these because they gave me an opportunity to use my new Cricut Cake. My son (age 4) said the crowns looked like fingers... he just might be right, oops! I haven't quite mastered this device, but am really excited about all the possibilities! I also wanted the kids to do a little activity so I went to Burger King and asked for some crowns, painted them with chalkboard paint and the kids used chalk to decorate their own crowns. The special birthday Prince and Princess had bright yellow crowns so they could feel extra special!

For the cupcakes I made minis and 2 large cupcakes for the guests of honor. I tried a new flavor, red velvet, and needless to say it will not be going on the chEATday menu. I'm sorry people, I just don't really like red velvet cake anyway and was more than embarrassed to serve it to my guests. Luckily, I had some extra Peanutbutter-Cup-Cakes in the fridge for the grown-ups :)

Valentines Suggestions

I am thinking of doing a Valentine's special of Chocolate Covered Strawberries and Chocoholics, what do you think?


Minnie's Chocolate Pie

I recently got a prank request, and I really couldn't stop giggling the whole time making it. One of my sister's-in-law has been wanting to prank another of our sister's-in-law for a while. A few weeks ago I got a text and phone call asking if I'd seen the movie, The Help. I really liked that movie, so when she said she needed to place and order I knew where this was going.

She wanted me to make Minnie's Chocolate Pie. If you haven't seen this movie, well, you need to! It's a great movie, and that is the only way you will understand why this would be a prank rather than a kind gesture. Here's the problem, I'd never made chocolate pie. I searched around, found a recipe that looked like it'd make sense. The batter looked and tasted good, and the pie turned out perfectly, just like Minnie's. Almost anyway. :)

The recipient was a good sport and we all had a slice of chocolate pie, and it really was as delicious as it looked.


New Flavor! Peanutbutter-Cup-Cake

I was tinkering around in the kitchen today and thought, maybe I'll try a peanut butter frosting. After a few test runs, I figured it out.

I topped a chocoholic cupcake with the peanut butter frosting and thought I was brilliant.

Just for fun I decided to try it as a filling instead with a chocolate ganache on top and O-M-G!!! It truly is a cupcake version of a peanutbutter cup candy. The chocoholic cupcake is the perfect cup for the smooth filling and the chocolate ganache literally melts in your mouth.

I only made one, so I had to practice self control long enough to get a picture of this goodness. If you like peanut butter, you'll certainly love this cupcake.


My baby's 1st Birthday cupcakes and cakes

I can't believe my baby turned 1! Even though we wanted to keep her birthday a small celebration, I just had to do a cake for her. Well, it actually turned into 50 mini ruffle cupcakes, 24 ruffle cupcakes, 1 verticle mini ruffle cake, 1 horizontal mini ruffle cake, 1 whimsical mini chocolate sprinkle cake.

I had less than 10 hours to shop for, bake, let cool, cut, and pipe (frost) all the cakes and cupcakes, and of course get my house in decent order WITH 3 kids! It was a little crazy, but my baby took 2 great naps so I could get everything done and make sure she wasn't neglected on her birthday :)

The dessert table

I baked some of the cakes in baby food jars, topped them with chocolate ganache, and spelled out my baby's name for a cute baby themed idea.

A white mini ruffle cake that wasn't touched since we had soooooo much cake.
*the following day I did a FB giveaway for this white ruffle cake and asked "Why do you deserve a chEATday" I loved all the responses so much I called my grandma to choose. Here's the one she picked:

Me! I've worked 55 hours per week these past two weeks at work without lunch breaks-working hard to get the students of BYU the financial aid they need. Oh I can totally use the treat to get me through one more week of busy-ness! :)

Grandma wasn't too happy her employer wasn't giving her lunch breaks!


Gender Reveal Cake

I've seen these done before, and hoped one day the opportunity would come my way to do one as well. Imagine my excitement when it did! Some friends of ours are will be having their 6th child soon and asked me to do a cake to announce the gender of their baby to their family.

Here's how it went. She went to the Dr. and told them she didn't want to be told the gender of the baby, they put the gender in a sealed envelope and she brought it to me. I baked a tall, round chocoholic cake and cut out the center of the cake. I colored the frosting the appropriate gender reveal color (pink for a girl and blue for a boy) and filled the cavity in the cake.

For the outside of the cake I was originally thinking of doing it all white, but the hubba-bubba said that was boring and suggested I do pink and white to make it more festive for their party. I decided to do a different ruffle. Remember this vertical ruffle cake? This time I wanted to try horizontal ruffles, and it seemed perfect for a baby cake.

Then, also at the suggestion of my hubba-bubba and I piped "It's a..." on the top of the cake so by cutting into it they would see if it was a boy or girl. It turned out perfectly, I think I'll keep that hubba-bubba of mine ;)

They took the cake to the party, and I was terrified that they would slam on the breaks, the cake would topple over and the the surprise spoiled. I know, I'm dramatic. Anyway, they had everyone gather around, they already have 4 girls and 1 boy so everyone started chanting "boy! boy! boy!" they cut into the cake, opened it for everyone see, to find PINK frosting! Another girl for this great family, we can't wait to meet her and I was happy to be a part of their gender reveal occasion.

With the extra cake I removed from the center I made my very first cake pops for their kids to enjoy on the drive.

*The next day I saw several of their family members and they told me how the cake was awesome and tasted amazing. Because really, isn't the point of a cake to taste good?
