Hula Girl Birthday Cookies and Hawaiian Flower Cupcakes

These cookies turned out ridiculously cute!  I created my own cookie cutter this time by bending a gingerbread woman cutter to my liking.  The cookies got a coat of glaze, then I piped on the skin tone icing, filling in the belly and face with a thinned version of the same icing. I also piped on the green hula skirts and added hair and a coconut bra.  Each dancer got a flower in her hair and a sweet face with edible markers.  Then I wrapped up each cookie in a cellophane bag with a little ribbon and a tag for handing out as favors for a birthday party at a hula dance studio.  The party guests also enjoyed some black and white cupcakes with lime green buttercream icing and a bright fondant hawaiian flower on top.

Fisher Price Jungle Animal Baby Shower Cupcakes

These vanilla and chocolate chocolate chip cupcakes were topped with vanilla buttercream tinted blue.  Then we created fondant circle toppers featuring the palm trees, giraffes, monkeys and cheetahs from the Fisher Price line of baby shower supplies.  The animals were hand cut from fondant and the details added with edible markers.

Noah's Ark First Birthday Cake

This Noah's Ark cake was for a special cousin of mine on his first birthday.  The cake was carved from a vanilla sheet cake and stacked with layers of homemade strawberry buttercream icing.  Both tiers of the cake were covered with brown fondant textured to look like wood planks.  Windows were added to the sides of the boat, then I added pairs of animals to each of the open windows, the deck and the roof.  All animals were hand molded from fondant with some details drawn in with edible marker.  Lastly I piped on the message to the birthday boy and added waves surrounding the cake with blue cream cheese icing, textured with a spatula to create "water".
