Oh Baby Baby……….

Yes its Baby Shower time and time forĀ another one of my favorite transformations.

Started by making 2 round red velvet cakes. Plain and simple and very boring……

Then shaped them to become something similar to 2 boobs and a bump šŸ™‚ in between layers of cream cheese frosting.

In just 1, 2, 3 the transformation is over and the cute bump is ready to party ā¤

To go with the glamorous bump we have some red velvet cupcakes decorated in true baby girl style :-).

PumPecApple Pie Cake Challenge……the beginning…

Howdy, yep I have accepted a challenge during this busy season and for those of you who know me, I cannot pass up on a baking or cooking challenge of any sort!

So the challenge is to try and make this 3 layered cake that consists of:

  • Pecan Pie cooked inside a Chocolate Cake
  • Apple Pie cooked inside a Spiced Cake
  • Pumpkin Pie cooked inside a Pumpkin Spiced Cake ( I am doing it with Carrot cake instead)
  • Then you freeze them all to make it easier to handle, stack them with layers of cream cheese frosting and then cover them with some more frosting, chopped pecans and a drizzle of caramel!

Here is the link to PumPecApple Pie Cake from the Food network.

The videos attached show the beginning of this challenge, more to follow, hoping to get one of my kids to help so that I concentrate on the making whilst they video for me! lol

Part 1 of many is done, below is a picture of the finished Spiced Cake with and Apple Pie inside šŸ™‚

Breast Cancer Fundraising Red Velvet Cupcakes……

What is so special about these cupcakes you might ask? They are just your regular red velvet cupcakes with a fabulous vanilla cream cheese icing…..

IMG_0189

But, no they are not regular cupcakes! What’s special about these cupcakes is the reason they were baked!

Tomorrow they will be sold as part of the Breast Cancer fundraising event at work, where team members will be having a bake sale for the cause!

Support the cause, save the Tatas!IMG_0191

Pinktober…….October is breast cancer awareness month!

As you may or may not know, here in the USA in October we celebrate Pinktober in honor of “Cancer Awareness”. During this month I bake a lot of goodies that get sold for fundraising. Not all of us can give $$$$$ for a lot of the charities that need help, but I find that a little baking brings me a lot of satisfaction and lets me be part of the cause.

I am also lucky to be working with a company that gets heavily involved in this cause and have Pinktober concerts, special rooms, team member fundraising walks, etc…..

Below are a few of the treats that I make for this important cause.

Boston Cream Cupcakes, Pink Lemonade Cupcakes, Carrot Cake Cupcakes, Pink Lemonade Cookies, Red Velvet Cupcakes……

Carrot Cake

And to all the women and men out there (yes men can get breast cancer too!), make sure you make your appointment for your yearly check up!!!!!
