Cakey Lately… November 19, 2009

Filed under: 1 — nenetakesthecake @ 8:45 pm

So, it has slowed down a bit for me in the cakey world but it is about to pick right back up. I have 3 dozen turkey cupcakes to make for Thanksgiving, the next week 12 dozen x-mas cupcakes and 2 ornament cakes. This means, I need to get started!

But In the last couple weeks I have made some pumpkin-ish type things, and some not.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake and Classic White Cake and Classic Icing

Finished product with fondant leaves.

Fairy Tale Book Cake, Chocolate with Classic Icing Book made of Rice Treats and covered in Fondant.

Up close picture on the book...

Until next time Peace, Love, and Turkey Cupcakes..




New Years Eve…Benefit and Cakey Event! November 9, 2009

Filed under: 1 — nenetakesthecake @ 7:07 pm

So I am working with my brother who is in a Local Band ( to put together a benefit for my Niece Taylor (5yrs) who was born with the worst case of spina bifida in Kansas City Area. This is also to benefit the Spina Bifida Foundation.

This event will be held at the Mission Theater (Johnson Dr). Right now what I know is that VIP tickets (only 100) will be sold at the price of $35. This will be all-inclusive wine, beer, food, and a champagne toast at midnight. The regular admission will be $10 and will only cover the entertainment. Last year we had a turn out of 400 plus people and it was amazing. There is a DJ for the evening ( and it is one heck of a party! More details will be posted later, but I am really hoping that you will be attending. One stop, drink…food…doing your part to help children with Spina Bifida!

So partly my contribution to this night will be CUPCAKES! (of course). I am currently working on some STELLAR recipes for this event. These will all be alcohol flavored cupcakes…without the alcohol of course. Some of the flavors including Strawberry daiquiri, Pina Colada, Chocolate Irish Bailey’s, and Margarita….(to name a few) This is going to be fun!

Peace, Love, and Alcohol flavored cupcakes…..:)
