    Here is the bday cake I made for BIL (at the request of SIL) :D
    I wasn't happy with the writing on the hood, and was going to wait for it to dry a bit and pick it off with a toothpick. DH talked me out of it. I was in a big hurry on this one.
    #8 Dale Earnhardt JR Budweiser RACE CAR! (yeah, I saw him racing a couple weeks ago!) woo-hoo!

    strawberry cake with BC (buttercream)icing.

    Hello kitty FBCT (frozen buttercream Transfer)...(BTW, I gave the icing a "trialed" or stucco-type finish--anyway, a non-smooth, jaggedy effect.)

    My cousin's Bridal Shower Hello Kitty Cake. Half was RV (red velvet), the other half triple chocolate fudge.

    Miranda....those are awesome cakes!!!! and I think the writing looks ok too...agree with your hubby!

    Black and red are two of the HARDEST colors to obtain for frosting cakes too...at least I always thought so when I did cakes! LOL

    You did a great job on those cakes Miranda. I didn't think the writing needed to be done over either. Wanted to bite right into all of them. Yummy! :D

    Thanks!
    I definately agree!! BLACK AND RED ARE THE WORST! Seems like I usally have them both to deal with each time...at least always black...
    I like a challenge, though.

    :D

    HAHA!
    With the baby at my feet, stomping...or running off while I clean my hands to run after him....it just takes a whole lot longer! Sometimes he bumps me, and I have to fix it... sometimes he will sit and watch TV! ? Sometimes I give him some crumbs to eat.
    DH was here helping me do the Dale Jr one. I get up really early or stay up really late sometimes while the kids are in bed.

    Hello Kitty and Tink Giant Cookies with Frozen Buttercream Transfers. The twins were thrilled. They didn't like how unreal the cookies at the mall were!

    Oh, I figured out that SIL's cake was the real deal. This is the one that went to the party! I was so nervous about travelling with this. It made it fine, though. Two huge RV cakes put together. MMF top. (RV is red velvet. MMF is marshmallow fondant--I made it, too!)

    DId you eat any cake, yet? I actually got a piece of the one I made yesterday. Usually, I don't get the chance....It was so funny. All the kids had black icing around their little mouths...my little boy looked like the baby from the Addams Family movie they made a few years ago! LOL!
