I Do Believe!

I do believe in Fairies!  Clap if you believe!

I had to quit clapping, my son and husband were looking at me a little oddly.  I'm really getting into my work...

This morning's pick up was for a little girl turning 1 today.  She was Tinkerbell for Halloween, so we went with a Tinkerbell themed cake and the invitation was a picture of her from Halloween.  So cute!

I've actually been waiting for months to try out an idea I had for butterfly wings.  Around Christmas I was looking at different cookie recipes, and one was for stained glass cookies.  The stained glass part was crunched up hard candies that re-melted in the oven as the cookie was baking.  I thought blending several different colored hard candies would be very pretty.  It did work, but the shapes are very organic, which worked fine in this circumstance.

Beautiful multi-color wings















Let the sun shine in...
Because the cake was for a 1 year old, there had to be a smash cake, which I created to look like Tinkerbell's home.  Here's the cakes as a whole:


And Tinkerbell's cottage:



















And some of the details.....


You'll notice I used figures for Tinkerbell and her friends.  With the perspective I wanted and the level of detail, I just didn't feel like I would be able to create such petite figures.  But now the birthday girl with have a keepsake from her first birthday.  Here's to this being first of many wonderful birthday's for this little girl.
