Friday 2 for 1

It's Friday so I'll leave you over the weekend with two sweet cakes. This first one was for a girls night get together with some of my favorite gals, (even though I wasn't able to attend). They let me run with whatever I wanted, however, it had to have chocolate! So, they got a chocolate cake filled with chocolate chip cookie dough, a light whipped topping and adorned with chocolate dipped strawberries. If that doesn't scream girls night, I don't know what does!
Next up was a baby shower cake for a surprise baby shower. It was such a joy to be a part of the party. The mom to be is a dear friend and this baby is a Miracle. Can't wait til the little gal gets here! The cake is chocolate filled with oreo mousse and covered in chocolate ganache. The decorations are made out of candy clay as are the flowers. Candy clay is really easy to make you should try it sometime!

Yes Cupcakes get you dance partners!

My older sister had a birthday recently and we decided to celebrate by taking her dancing! By dancing I mean good 'ole Texas two-steppin. If you are ever in the area, check out Southern Junction. The only problem was that all our guy dance partners bailed on us so we were left at the mercy of whoever was brave enough to ask. Sister wanted cherry cobbler for her birthday, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to keep cherry cobbler warm and serve it at Southern Junction. So, sister said, "can't you just make cherry cobbler cupcakes?" Of course I can. Haha. So, I whipped up a brown sugar cake with a cherry pie center, crumble topping and Vanilla whipped frosting. There were probably 500 dancers at the Junction and at least half of them were eyeballing the cupcakes. But one brave cowboy did more than stare, he walked right up to me and said, "Whose birthday is it?" I pointed at my sister, then he said, "how could I get one of those cupcakes?" I said, "oh you can just have one! But, It'd be awesome if you took my sister out for a spin on the floor, haha." He said, "Deal." Took her out for a dance and said, "I'll be back for more cupcakes." And he definitely came back again. So, the moral of this story: If you are going dancing but don't have any solid dance partners lined up just bake some cupcakes and watch the guys line up!
