Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


My goal was to turn a favorite cookie, old-fashioned soft pumpkin cookies (adapted from Very Best Baking), into pumpkin cupcakes (adapted from Cake Central).  The cupcakes were a success.  Moist, not too dense/not too fluffy, delicious.  Perfect with the cinnamon cream cheese frosting

Little Mermaid Cake


My sister asked for a birthday cake based on her all time favorite movie. So, I gave it a try. It was made with two layers of strawberry cake (from Cake Central) and yellow cake (adapted from Cake Central) each. The layers were filled and crumb coated with a cream cheese frosting. The whole cake was then covered and decorated with marshmallow fondant.

Superbowl Cupcakes

Was hoping to make one of those nifty pull away cupcakes cake that looks like a football field but between cleaning, moving furniture, and cooking for the Superbowl party, I was only able to whip up a quick batch of my go to chocolate cupcakes, dye the cream cheese frosting (from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book) green, have my sister roll the top in dyed shredded coconut, and make my boyfriend roll out the fondant footballs which I decorated with a powdered sugar icing (adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book).
