Butterflies in Buttercream

Butterfly Drawing Cake

I decorated this little multi-tiered cake from a drawing that my niece made for me. Hers was so sweet that I thought it should taste that way, too.

Little Lollipop Cakes

These little cakes are my new favorite thing to make. I loved making red velvet cake balls, but this is the first time I have tried that recipe with something other than red velvet. The chocolate cake was great and somehow putting them on a lollipop stick made them seem even better. Now, I'm going to have to try more cake combinations. Yikes!

Little Pink & Purple Princess cake

Here's my first cake created with the new Kitchenaid mixer. This little chocolate cake was inspired by my six-year old niece. She did some artwork a while back that I saved. I thought the colors would make a nice pattern. You can see her artwork here.

I better get baking

After years of using a cheap hand mixer, I've finally moved to the big leagues with my brand new Kitchenaid artisan stand mixer. I was totally surprised to get this pink beauty for Christmas. I haven't used it yet, but I can't wait to try it out. I hope it improves my "from scratch" baking.
