Toy Story 5?

I had to make a cake for yesterday morning for a boy turning 5!  I wanted to put his happy birthday in a cool way, so I copied the Toy Story (2, 3) style.

I had to make a Buzz Lightyear and a Woody.  Now Woody I'm happy with.  A few tweeks and he's perfect to me.  Buzz on the other hand.....a couple things I'd change.  I wouldn't make him so mad...(or does he look constipated? I can't decide)  I tried to put as much details as I could.  Notice the Andy under their shoe?

I AM super happy with how I iced my cake though.  I've never iced a full cake since Babydoll's Kitchen.  I always cover my cakes with Fondant.  I'm pretty proud of myself :)

Tada! Hope Vincent was happy :)

Girly Snake Cake DONE! :)

I am SO happy with this cake!!  I would change a couple little things, but otherwise, I am PSYCHED about this cake.  Her face is exactly what I had envisionned!  I had a blast doing this cake.  It was challenging at first, and the scales were time consuming, but SO worth it :)   My client sent me an email AS SOON as she saw it!  Her husband drove to my house to pick it up at 7am this morning :)

Happy Birthday Emily :)  So happy you liked your cake :)

Here is the feedback letter I received.

Porky's Cupcakes

I could not have whipped these up faster if I tried.  Today marks the 10 year death anniversary of my dear uncle David.   His nickname was Porky. 

Uncle D, these cupcakes are for you!   I'm bringing them to your baby brother's shop.  They're not perfect, as I didn't even think.  I just made them on the fly.  They made me smile past the tears.

I love you uncle D.  *hugs*

One of my biggest fan's name is, Antonio.  I'd like to dedicate this post to my biggest fan.  *I love you soooo much*

Antonio is one of the most intelligent little boys I've ever met in my life. He has a heart of gold and is an old soul.  He's only 8 years old, but wise beyond his years.  When he talks, I am captivated by his words.  His smiles make my heart swell up.  Antonio is my first born son.  The one that taught me so much.  He makes me the happiest mother in the world.  He's so caring and loving.  He loves me.  

He loves my cooking.  LOVES my cooking.  Thinks I'm the best cook in the world. 
Thinks I make the coolest cakes.  He is SO proud of me. 

You know what my son did?  He asked if he could have enough cards to bring to school, to pass out to his classmates and teachers.  He showed anyone that would look, my website. 

I am seriously the luckiest mom in the world to have him as my son. 

I love you Antonio :)

Ps: I'll make you ANY cake you want for your birthday :) xoxo

My 1st Darth Vader

Well...I'm so tempted to criticize myself. I wanna rip that DV apart right now. Point out everything that's not right.
I do that. Its what I do.
#1 Critic = Moi.
But not tonight. Not on this one. For once, I'm gonna keep my nagging to myself and be proud of the fact that I had no time to research tips and tricks because I was asked to do this cake yesterday...mid day....and I have my boys with I've put about 6 hours into this cake. Again, I've never watched Star Wars. I'm not familiar with this character. It was a challenge.
I just hope 9 year old Jedi Jad likes it :)

Darth Vader Part 2.

Shaping it to the best of my abilities.
Can I just add here, that I think its important that you all know, I have NEVER....EVER.....ever seen a Star Wars movie *ducks and runs for cover*
For real.
I'm told that's a very unfortunate thing. Ill take their word for it lol.
Part deux.

Darth Vader Part 1

So here are all the complete parts. And I start!

Wish me luck!

So remember my last post, I said to come back soon, as a new cake would be posted......Well....soon means today.  I am SO nervous about finishing the cake tonight! O M G!!

I'm sure you're all dying to know what cake I'm making tonight.  You ARE??  You REALLY wanna know?!?!?

Ok, so here's what I'm gonna do.  I'm gonna TELL you what I'm making, AFTER I show you the "parts".

So here are the parts I need to build my cake

Does this give you a clue??  All 3 of those cakes will be used.  Plus another cylinder shaped one.

No? Still no clue what tonight's cake is?

Alright alright, I'll tell you.  I am going to transform these cakes, into... *drum roll*

*Happy sigh*

Well, today was seriously like Christmas!!

Today I got a facebook text asking if I could make a snake cake for end of April.  I came up with SO many ideas!!!  It's for a little girl, they're having Little Ray's Reptiles over to their house, so a cake snake is sooo fitting.  I was thinking of making a girly one...a little head with a tiny little pink bow :)  We'll see, i still got some time to do more research and pick what I'll make :)

Then I got to the mailbox...and WOOHOOO!!  SO many stuff that I ordered off Ebay came in!!!   A butterfly Cake Pan, my 6 mini 3-tier wedding cake pans, my Hello Kitty cake pan, my icing bag holder tray, MY BUSINESS CARDS (which were created in collaboration with Mags)!!!!  O M G!! THEYRE PERFECT!!!  Sooooo fun and purty and just....I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!  I'm going to hand them out SO much!!  Hopefully that picks up some business :) :) :)

I am seriously floating.  Seriously.  This is so cool :)   I know it won't always be like this...I'll have not so good times, but I need to keep my head on straight and realise that all the "bad times" are learning curves.   I'll just learn, pick myself up and dust myself off.   I'm not Buddy the Cake Boss.  I'm the single mother of 4 boys trying to make life a little easier.   I'm a single mother of 4 boys, living her dream.

How blessed am I?  Let me count the ways..... <3

Please come back soon, a cake post is around the corner!

Tigger Cake all Done!!


Tuesday, April 3, 2012


Well, tonight is THE night that I get my Tigger stuff in order.  I'm excited and scared at the same time.  I also have my sister's Low Calorie Chocolate Waffer Cake (She's diabetic) for her birthday that's TOMORROW (I'll send you a shout-out tomorrow little Sis) and I also have to make a dessert for Saturday's family Easter dinner :)  

It's weird, cause I am seeing all this unfold before my eyes, and I'm seriously nervous.  This is a DREAM.  I am very aware that not everyone's dreams come true.  Not everyone is blessed to have this happen.  I'm not taking it for granted, I can guarantee you that.

I need to put myself out there.  Get more clients.  I quit my second job at David's Bridal so I could concentrate on my BabydollsKitchen dream.  I know I did the right thing.   I'm a little overwhelmed.  So much to learn and do and so little time.  I can't quit my career anytime soon...I have my boys part time....I need to remind myself to take it day at a time...Dead Fish as my little sister would say. 

I can do this, I know I can.  I just need to keep believing....and never EVER give up.

Thank you to everyone that supports me.  Thanks to every single one of you who've visited my site.  You make me want to keep going!!!    I'd also like to give a shotout to a friend of mine, who's helping me achieve my dream.  He is helping me build a solid foundation, and he believes in me even when I doubt myself.  He's put things in motion for me to thrive at my full potential.  I am so grateful for everything you're doing.  You know who you "R" ;)

God Bless,
