So it's my brother's longtime girlfriend Danielle's birthday party tonight, and I decided I had to make something. She is a total fashion queen and the best shopper you have ever seen (seriously, she makes an art out of it..I can't keep up when I tag along). I felt that Chanel cupcakes would be appropriate.

I did chocolate cupcakes FILLED (oh yes) with chocolate cheesecake, and topped with vanilla buttercream, and a little fondant logo! They are pretty decadent and I think I will advise people to possibly share!

dallas cowboys themed cake!

Football cake! I was asked by my friend Kristen to construct a Dallas Cowboys themed cake for her son Noah's 2nd birthday! There haven't been a lot of birthdays lately so I was totally up for it!

I was inspired by a pic I found online, most of the cakes were too themed, I wanted to keep it simple, yet still friendly towards small children.

And I actually got it done, ahead of schedule! I rolled out the fondant pretty thin, so it sort of wrinkled up in a few places (I'm still an amateur!), but other than that minor detail, the rest went really smoothly, and I really enjoyed making this cake!
