More Toppers

Hey everyone! Well, I have some more cupcake toppers for you today. I am on a cherry kick and can't seem to get off of it. I just love cherries ad each time I am designing toppers, I come up with more ideas. I guess that's good though, right?

Todays toppers are red gingham with a pink background. I'm loving these too!
To print these for free click here. I would love to see some pictures of you using my toppers! Be sure and post them on my Facebook page. You can find the link to it at the top of this page. I would also love to hear some feedback on these. Well, I'm off to try to figure out what I'm going to do next! Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday and I'll see you back here soon!

Cupcake toppers!

Hey everyone and happy Monday! I'm dragging a little today. It is our first day of school around here and we were up and at it early this morning. It's been a while since we have been up early so now I'm feeling like I need a little nap. (As I'm yawning!) My oldest is a freshman and is at her first day of high school, my middle is a 6th grader at her middle school and then my baby is 3 so she and I are just hanging out. (Us hanging out leads me to the cupcake toppers.)

Have you guys seen these adorable party printables floating around?? I'm sure you have but if you haven't you must take a look around. Here are some just to get started. Well, I have been wanting to make some of my own for a while now so since Hannah and I were just hanging out this morning, I decided to make some. Have you noticed how there is a cherry theme going around as well? Yep, me too and I LOVE the cherry cookies, cupcakes, cup towels, bowls, material and well let's just say I love anything with cherries on it!! So then it hit me! I should make some cupcake toppers in a cherry theme. Let me just say, these were so much fun to make!! And, I'm so proud of myself for figuring out how to make them! I'm not sure that I did it the "correct" way BUT I got them made.
I don't know what you think, but I think they turned out pretty darn cute! Guess what? I'm going to share them with you! Just click here and print away! Be sure and let me know what you think because I'm thinking I might make some more. They were lots of fun to make and I love to share so I hope you guys enjoy them. Be sure to share your pictures too! Post away on my FB page. Toodles for now!

Hubby's Birthday Cake

Hey all! Hope you guys are having a great day so far! These days are flying by and it won't be long until school starts here and I can't believe how the summer has flown by. I always know the summer is going fast when my hubby's birthday rolls around. This year I wanted to make something special for his birthday. He loves a good cake but his favorite is a strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting. So there we have it! That's what I set out to do. I wanted to make him the best strawberry cake and the best cream cheese icing I could find.

Well, I found an amazing recipe in one of my cookbooks and thought it was going to work perfectly until....let me just say he works for the railroad and can be called out and has to go, right then. Needless to say, it came down to a box cake lol. I ran out of time and he had to go to work. I did however make the cream cheese icing! And it was AMAZING!

I also wanted to do something out of the ordinary and fun. The good thing about him is that he didn't care if it was very manly or not just as long as it tastes good. With that being said, I was in for some fun decorating! Here's how it turned out.
Now, I know your saying, "I thought she said it was a strawberry cake?" Well, I did say it was strawberry but when I got the cake all decorated I decided it looked to plain and needed something on top. I started looking through the fridge and do you think I had one single strawberry in there?? Of course not! BUT I did have some cherries! I think they served the purpose just fine! I call it improvising lol. Did the cake taste good you ask? It was....AMAZING!!! Derek loved it and that's all that really mattered, right?
I will definitely be making this again and I can't wait to try the awesome icing on something else! I'm thinking maybe a chocolate cake next. Who knows?! All I know is the cake is all gone and I want more!!

Well, that's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by. I love comments so don't be shy! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday and see you back here soon!
