Mr. & Mrs. Philip and Lori Choi!

Congratulations to the beautiful newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Philip and Lori Choi today at the Richard Nixon Museum and Library! Lori asked me to make them a wedding display cake for their big special day and I couldn't be more honored! I was really nervous and excited in a good way to be a part of their happy day. Lori asked for a white 4 tiered cake with blue hydrangea flowers with orchids and calla lilies on top. They want to serve ice cream cake for their dessert so obviously you can display an ice cream cake because it'll melt, so that is why this will be a display cake where only the top tier is real, so they can cut into it and have their cake cutting ceremony, while the rest is fake. The top tier is a 4" round French Vanilla cake with Bavarian Cream filling. The rest of the cake are all dummy cakes that are 8" round, 12" round, and 16" round that are covered with buttercream. All the decorations are made out of fondant while the monogram had silver luster dust brushed onto it. All of this is placed on top of a 22" round silver finish wedding cake stand plateau that arrived just in the nick of time! Special thanks to my husband Khoa for your super careful stealth ninja driving skills, and for helping me deliver the cake! Once again, congratulations and I wish you a lifetime of eternal happiness and love!
These photos were taken from Khoa's nifty awesome retro camera! I love the effect!

For Military Veterans

My coworker, Andrea, wanted me to make some cupcakes for her Veteran's Office at her school because they work so hard. So she wanted me to make little MRE (meals-ready-to-eat) bags that they would get while in the field or overseas because they have a little joke about them. So this is what I came up with, and I added some camouflage cupcakes as well to go with the military theme. These are French Vanilla cupcakes and I still have some Bavarian Orange Cream Filling left so I decided to add filling to these as well! You can't go wrong with Bavarian filling, it's probably my favorite filling so far! So enjoy military vets! You guys deserve it and thank you for all those who helped protect this country!

Disney Halloween Cupcakes!

Trick or treat! I wanted to make some fun Halloween cupcakes for my friends and so I decided to make Disney Halloween cupcakes because I LOVE Disneyland and all the cute lovable characters. Chi Ba also suggested that I do Nightmare Before Christmas (great suggestion, thanks Chi Ba!) since I'm going with the Disney route so this is what I came up with! I made Jack Skellington and Zero, his pet ghost dog, and I made Mickey Mouse in his mummy costume and Minnie Mouse in her pumpkin costume! To find a fitting flavor to go with my themed cupcakes, I decided to make Pumpkin Spice cupcakes with Bavarian Orange Cream filling, mhmmm! I want to give special thanks like always to my wonderful assistant Jennifer for helping me with these lovely tricky creations! Thanks a bunch sissy!

So here's how I made these sweet treats! Mickey Mouse's eyes and ears out of fondant (thanks Khoa for jumping into eye duty last minute!) and piped on mickey's mummy wrappings! My pumpkin cupcakes were frosted with orange buttercream, topped with orange sugar crystals. The trunk of the pumpkin is green twislers, and the vines are green licorice rope. Minnie's bow and ears are made of fondant. Jack Skellington is decorated with buttercream and only his eyes are made of fondant. Zero is my absolute favorite and he is made out of fondant and I used black food coloring to dot his eyes! I wish I had a Zero of my own to be Luna's playmate! =)

So of course, how can I have fun Halloween cupcakes without some super awesome fun Halloween jokes?? Ready?? Here they are... How do monsters tell their future? With horror-scopes! What do ghosts add to their morning cereal? Boo-berries! Why was the skeleton afraid to cross the street? Because it had no guts! What do you do to mend a Jack-O-Lantern? A pumpkin patch! hahaha, ok that's enough =P. Anyways, enjoy and have a safe and fun time on Halloween, or as birds would say, "Trick or Tweet!" =)

Vroom Vroom Race Car Birthday!

Happy Birthday Andrew! So this is my sister Jennifer's first masterpiece for her boyfriend Andrew and she custom made this British inspired Lotus Formula One race car for him for his birthday!! All I did was bake the cupcakes and buttercream and she did the rest! She covered these mini green French Vanilla cupcakes with green frosting, and coated them in green sugar crystals. She used vanilla wafers for the head, and fondant for the driver's helmet and sunglasses. She used chocolate mini donuts for the wheels with yellow mentos for the hubcaps as well! The yellow bar in the front of the car and the spoiler in the back is a graham cracker held up with butterfingers sticks. The numbers 05, the number of speed racer, is made of fondant. The black thing in front of the race car is also a butterfingers stick covered in fondant! What a great job and I am super proud and impressed of her edible piece of art!! Ok so here they come, more super awesome corny jokes! What do you get when you mix a car, a fly, and a dog? A flying carpet! What happened to the wooden car with the wooden motor with the wooden wheels? It wooden go! What happened to the steel car with the steel motor and the steel wheels? It steel wouldn't go!!! =P Happy birthday Andrew!!
