I made ice cream cake cupcakes for Riley's 5th birthday along with his wolverine cake. This way i could make ice cream cake of different flavors. They all had a chocolate cake base and a chocolate ganache topping. This one had coconut ice cream.
Here is a "40 oz." Starbuck's coffe cup cake that I made for Jerilyn's "40th" birthday. (August 2009) I even put a "lipstick" mark on the top of the cup. It was a fun cake and the first time I made and used fondant.

These are sunflower cupcakes I made in April 2008 for Sophie's 7th birthday at her school and for her teacher who shared the same birthday. The picture isn't very good - I took it with my phone. Can't see it but there are little ladybugs in the center area of the sunflower.
Below is me and my first pumpkins I have grown in Oct. 2008.

Here are fish bowl cupcakes I made for Haley's birthday and a Fishbowl cake that I made for a dessert auction at Haley's school. Haley loved the cake so much (she followed it around and even snuck nerds off the cake) that I made the cupcake version for her birthday.
Made these flower cupcakes to welcome Charlie and it worked - she arrived just days later! Must have been the chocolate and yummy sweet frosting! :)
This is the first harvest of 2009 - I think around late June/early July. We picked swiss chard (not shown), yellow and green zucchini squash, strawberries, tomatoes, herbs, purple and regular carrots (the purple ones are good!), onions (small but yummy) and lemon and regular cucumbers.
