We learned how to roll the frosting in sugar to create the apple, and adorned it with a tootsie roll stem, and a laffy taffy leaf. We learned to dirty ice the duck, and then dip it in candy melts to create a cute little duck with mini m&m eyes, and a orange tootsie roll beak. I let the girls go crazy with their monster, he was made using sugared fruit rings and dum dum sucker eyes. The girls got really creative making their monsters, covering them with candies.

A Birthday Post!
My youngest daughter Brook just turned 12. She asked for a hamburger cake....so this is what I came up with. It was so realistic looking, that it was kind of disturbing! I used a rice cake for the burger..... it really looks like a hamburger! The fries were made from toasted pound cake and dipped in red frosting to resemble ketchup.
She invited over her friends to have a cupcake decorating party. The table was filled with goodies!
We started by using ziplock bags to pipe the frosting on our cupcake pie. (I have a facination with pies I guess.) I taught the girls a few techniques for decorating their cupcakes.
I think they all did very well piping the frosting on their pies.
Happy Birthday my little Brookie! Twelve already...... where does the time go?
