Buckeyes are one of our favorite candies/dessert to make. They are so delicious. What's better than peanut butter and chocolate, especially when the peanut butter is mixed with powdered sugar???
Here are some pictures of the buckeyes that we make:

One thing that we love about buckeyes is that they don't need to be perfectly uniform, each one is different than the other.

Decorted Flower Cake

We decorated our grandparents anniversary cake for their 46th anniversary. My grandma loves to garden; it's how she spends her time now that she is retired and she normally makes my grandpa help. So, we decided that we would make a cake with flowers on it. We put pink and purple flowers on the top along with some small blue drop flowers in between them. Here are some pictures of the cake we decorated:  

We also put purple, pink, and blue flowers on the front side of the cake so that it wasn't plain.

We did a basket weave in brown around the cake so that it would look a basket of flowers.

We have been wanting to try different types of butter cream and finally got to try Italian butter cream. If you haven't tried it before than you should try it soon because it's really good. It's not as sweet as the American butter cream (or the icing known as just butter cream to most people). It's a little more difficult to make, but totally worth it in the end!

This is a picture of the 3 different types of cupcakes we made. ( They are all chocolate cake, but they have different types of icing)

This cupcake has the American butter cream.

This is Italian butter cream, but we flavored it peppermint. We were creating a peppermint patty cupcake, give it a try sometime!

This one is just the Italian butter cream. 

Graduation Cake

We decorated this cake for our cousin's Graduation party. Her school colors were silver and blue, so naturally that's how we decorated the cake. To get the silver icing, we bought this stuff that was like edible spray paint.

This was the front of the cake. (above). It said "Congrats, Emilia".

This was one side, It said "Success Bound". 

The other side of the cake said "2014", because she is a 2014 Graduate.

Again, we used the ombre design but with only one color. For the silver, just ice the cake with white icing and then spray on the silver. We thought that the silver looked cool when the icing wasn't smooth, so that's how we did it. You could also use this kind of coloring on cupcakes and it would look good.

Strawberry Chocolate Cupcake

Chocolate covered strawberries are good, so why can't a chocolate strawberry cupcake be great?
Well, we thought it would be delicious, so we made one.

We cut our strawberries into small pieces and put them in sugar, like you would for strawberry shortcake. We frosted a chocolate cupcake with butter cream frosting and then topped it with the strawberries. Enjoy!
