The Hunger Games Cake

My friend's birthday was this week and so we are celebrating it today! This year I made her a Hunger Games cake. I read the books over the summer and loved them. I'm not sure if I'll go see the movie though...The movies tend to ruin the books for me. Anyway, the cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream and the mockingjay is fondant. I can't wait to give it to her tonight at her party. Happy Birthday Rachel! <3

Teapot Cake

For my mom's birthday this year I made her a teapot cake! It was a perfect size for just the family and pretty quick to put together. Working with gum paste would have made it easier since then the spout would have stood on its own but I think it still turned out pretty cute. Yellow cake with vanilla/almond icing and fondant decorations. Since it's the birthday month for all my friends and family (it feels like) I'll be having at least 2 more cakes up soon :)
