Alien Cupcakes!

Rainbow Cake

I made this fun spring birthday cake for Carmen Isom. It has a surprise center!

Making Rainbow Cake

Making cake that is rainbow on the inside will require the following steps:

1) Using white cake, divide you batter up into five bowls.

2) Now add food coloring to each bowl for each color of the rainbow. I prefer to use gel food coloring. This can be found at an arts and craft store with a cake decorating section.

3) Once you have all your colors you will want to pour in each color one at a time. Pour the color into the center. Then pour the next color into the center. Do not stir or mix.

4) Bake your cake!

5) When it's done your cake will create rainbow circles on the top, but when you cut into it you will have bands of rainbow color!

The original link where I learned how to do this is:
This page has great photos and explanations on how to make this cake!

Rose Cake

This is my first cake using frosting roses. I mixed together pink and white frosting as I was creating the roses and this is why the roses are different colors. Thank you to Russell Gearhart Photography for taking photos of my cakes! (

Fun with Chocolate!

This is my second decorated cake and my first four layered cake. I had fun creating swirls with melted chocolate for this cake. It was a chocolate fudge and red velvet cake. It tasted as good as it looks. Yum yum!

Circus Clowns

This is the second cake we created in my cake decorating class. Silly little clowns! If you can see behind the clowns - those are my first frosting roses!

My First Cake!!

I decided to take a cake decorating class through the arts and craft store "Michael's." So this lovely rainbow creation is my very first decorated cake! Woohoo!
