Coach, Coach and Coach!!!

Everyone loves a Coach purse!

A few months ago I had a new client contact me about making a Coach purse for her sister that is turning 23. She had found the picture of Olivia's Cake that I had made and wanted it as a Coach purse, shoe and shoe box.

At the cake tasting and design session, it was fun to see how excited Stacy and her friends were to surprise her sister. I am glad I could be a part of this fun occasion.

The "C"s on the purse and the shoe are all hand painted and I must admit took me FOREVER! But I learned a lot in the process. Everything on the cake is edible, even the silver buckles.
Thank you Stacy! I hope your sister's party in Miami was a BLAST!

Gumpaste shoes

As I am learning more about the sugar arts and cake decorating, i am learning that I have a lot more to learn, not just about sugar, but also photography, sketching, and art in all forms. Every kind of art is intertwined if you want to become proficient at one. So I am trying to develop lots of hopefully hidden potential. Only time and a whole lot of work will tell, but I think I am up to the challenge.

So with that preface, here is a not so good photo of a few gumpaste shoes I have made. I am working on photography at the moment, I have now decided...

Pumpkin Patch Cupcakes

I know these are a little late in coming, but they could be used for Halloween or Thanksgiving.

So Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey, now I am really early!
And Yes, I am an optimist!

Actually, I made these cute "Thanksgiving" cupcakes with a great group of young girls from church. I am a teacher for the 12-13 year old girls on Sundays and on Wednesday nights we meet and learn crafts, cooking, do service projects and all sorts of other fun stuff. It is really fun working with my group of girls. They have been wanting to learn how to work with Fondant, so I thought these cupcakes would be a great place to start. They did a wonderful job too, I just wish I had remembered my camera, so I could show you all of their cute pumpkin patches.
So, I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween.

Happy Thanksgiving!
