German/Beer Themed Cake

My friend Kelly asked me to make her husband's 35th birthday cake. Kelly is a graphic designer and this is the 2nd cake she has designed for me to make. I cannot take credit for any of the design elements, only carrying out her plan. And sweet Kelly always has way more confidence in my abilities than I do!

This is the "sketch" she gave me.

And this is what I came up with.

I had less than a week to hunt down all the materials. The beer bottles are Tabasco bottles.

The beer glass was such a challenge to find... after several trips to wal-mart, target, and several craft stores, I finally found one that was to scale and the right shape at Goodwill. I used a can covered in fondant for the barrel.

Cookies, cookies, cookies!

I've been BUSY with some cookies! I have loved getting to create a few new designs.

Valentine's Day inspired Scotties.

Hearts. These were so fun.

These are actually brownies with a fondant overlay.

This is what Asher took to school for his Valentines with a cute little tag that read, "Have a monster-ific Valentine's Day."

Girl's night out/Bachelorette inspired cookies.

Fancy Nancy cookies for my niece's 5th birthday party.

Mickey and Minnie cookies for a sweet 2nd birthday!

You can order any of these cookies (and more!) at my online Etsy Store Here.

Yo Gabba Gabba-Brobee Cake!

I must confess, I'm not terribly familiar with the Yo Gabba Gabba phenomenon. With our limited cable package, most the cartoons I see come on PBS. But, he was a quick study, thank goodness!

Brobee couldn't be any more cute, could he?

Yo Gabba Gabba!
