Western “Branded” Birthday Cake with Horseshoes & Barbed Wire

This western cake is surrounded by hand made sugar barbed wire, sugar horseshoes and western cattle/horse brands. The cake is german chocolate with homemade coconut pecan filling in the middle and covered with german chocolate buttercream – all from scratch.   Yum! This cake was done for my Wee Bites cancer fundraiser website along with 80 large german chocolate whoopies – fit right in with their western theme and got lots of compliments (the party organizer told me there were anyway) 🙂  Had a lot of fun making this one:

Cake pops

I’ve been amassing a variety of cake pop characters since last fall – these are some of my favs!

Wow.. first post of 2011? Seriously?!

I guess it’s been a busy year because I don’t have a single post for 2011!  Time to fix that! 🙂

In November of 2010 a friend of mine and I started a baking fundraiser for our the, 2 year old granddaughter, to help raise funds for her and her family while she battled cancer and a liver transplant. Our granddaughter is 3 now and doing really well with her new liver.  I have decided to keep our little bake sale fundraiser going so I finally got my Wee Bites site online!

Lots of photos and some of the same cakes you see on this blog but all the cupcake and cake pops have not been posted on the blog.. yet. 🙂

I have two more pumpkins on the vine for some October pumpkin sculpting. I think I will name the Bert & Ernie. 🙂

Pumpkin Carving/Sculpting 02 – Tree Brain

Meet Tree Brain – you’d think in all the time it took to carve him I could have come up with a better name! ha.  – Pumpkin carving attempt #2 – 42.5 pound Dill Atlantic Pumpkin. See Big-Eyed-Boo Pumpkin #1


Pumpkin Carving/Sculpting 01 – Big Eyed Boo!

Well, I made an attempt to grow to GIANT pumpkins this year… and well, let’s just say they didn’t make it to GIANT status but they were heavy… or maybe I was just tired! *L*  One was 42.5 pounds and the other was 26.5 pounds… not huge by any  means, but they are my first, so I love them.   Because I have talked to these pumpkins all summer & fall (to encourage growth I suppose – or just because they were good listeners)  I decided to try my hand at sculpting since they were so heavy for their size, they were supposed to have thick “skin” and they did… so they worked out perfect and I only broke one tool on them – like due to my overzealous carving. I watched a show on pumpkin carving on food network a few weeks ago and it looked like too much fun not to try. See Tree-Brain Pumpkin #2
