Happy Birthday Cakes

Forgive me if this post is a jumbled mess. I'm running on about 5 hours of sleep in the past 36 hours. Why? Because I spent the whole night baking 3 wonderful birthday cakes for 3 adorable little girls. The girls, who are sisters, share a birthday very close to each other so they got to celebrate together today with a joint party. Each of them of course has their own personality and so they had their own theme for each girl. Elmo, Disney Princess and Pokemon. This was quite the challenge for my first official cake decorating endeavor but staying up all night was worth it! I really hope that the family enjoyed their cakes and I hope they were a hit at the party. So, take a look at my creations.

The mess ensues.

Mmm. Funfetti cake.

The early stages.

Jessie was my little buddy into the wee hours of the morning.

Wanna try and guess what time it is? Yeah it was late. Or early.

Somehow I managed to make a Pikachu out of fondant at 6:45 in the morning.

Elmo cake!

This is Annie. She's my parents dog. Or rather my brother's dog that my parents take care of. She's cute.

The princess cake.

Hee hee hee. That tickles.

Wow - good job! :) Do you make your own fondant or do you use pre-made and color it yourself?

I've been making my own homemade fondant. It's a marshmallow fondant that is real simple as far as the recipe goes, but it's somewhat time consuming. Then I color it myself. :)
