Lightning McQueen & Saints Helmet Cakes

We recently celebrated the birthdays of my brother and nephew who happen to share the same birthday. For this Cars themed party, I had to make my nephews favorite Cars character, Lightning McQueen. This fondant covered cake was orange cake with strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream.

My brother's cake was a helmet of his favorite football team, the Saints. This was a pumpkin cake with maple buttercream.

Happy Birthday Brad & Mason!

Happy New Year!!!

Like many people I've talked to, I was not sad to see 2011 go. With the exception of the arrival of my beautiful and perfect niece Ashlyn, this year was a bit, well, blah. Let me just say there was not near enough cake and most of the cakes I did make never made it to this blog. One of my goals for 2012 is to make more cakes and to actually post them. To start, here are the cupcakes that helped us ring in the New Year. Chocolate, chocolate chip cake with fluffy vanilla buttercream. I gave them a little New Years glam with a silver star and black and silver cake sparkles.

I wish you all health and happiness in 2012!!!
