Polka-Dot Offset Square Wedding Cake

A square wedding cake is a great way to add some uniqueness to your wedding. They are definitely becoming increasingly popular and there are so many things you can do with them.  The cake pictured above shows offset squares with a simple polka-dot  ribbon placed neatly around the bottom edge of each cake.  The ribbon on the base of each level of cake could also be made of fondant icing if you wanted to go that route. It could then be accented with edible candy decorations etc. The cakes themselves are each covered in smooth white fondant. If you can get the knack of smoothing the fondant icing down, this would be a pretty simple, yet elegant and classy cake design that beginners could attempt to make on their own.

Square wedding cakes are usually tiered with the largest square being on the bottom and the smallest on the top. They can also be separated and displayed on cake stands of different heights.  Each cake tier can be the same flavor or different flavors depending on the choice of the bride and groom.

Covering a square cake with fondant is much easier to do than a round cake. Many people prefer this option as well so the wedding cake can easily be made by a close friend or family member to save on wedding costs.

There are so many creative and unique things you can do when designing a square cake for your wedding day. Have fun.

Cookie Monster Cupcakes

Super Cute Cookie Monster Cupcake

Cookie Monster Cupcakes are a fun way to change things up a bit at a party. There are so many cake designs and themes out there but some people really enjoy cupcakes. They are small, convenient and save the trouble of someone having to cut the cake. Cookie Monster cupcakes are a truly unique and adorable creation.

This cupcake gives you two treats in one, and since cookie monster loves all cookies, the possibilities are endless. You can use cream filled cookies, fruit filled cookies, marshmallow cookies, wafer cookies, and the list goes on and on.

How do you frost the cookie monster cupcake? There are a few ways you can do this. You can ice the cupcake with blue icing and give it texture by running a fork through it, you could even pipe little spikes out of blue icing onto the cupcake. Another way would be to ice the cupcake as smooth as possible and dip it into blue sugar sprinkles until it’s nice and coated. One last idea is to mix some blue food coloring into a bowl of coconut and then dip the iced cupcake into the coconut.

Vanilla icing would work best for these cupcakes but if everybody loves chocolate it won’t hurt to use chocolate.

The eyes can be made of fondant, marzipan, or Mentos mints. Simply glue chocolate chips onto whatever eyeball material you use with a dab of white icing.

As for inserting the cookie into the cupcake, make sure you cut the cookie on half (half of a cookie per cupcake) and cut a tiny slit into the side of the cupcake and place the cookie into the slit. If you are having trouble making the cookie stay in the slit, try cutting the slit a little deeper or dab a little icing on the end of the cookie then insert it into the cupcake slit.

Why not try something new for your child’s next party and have some fun with the Cookie Monster Cupcake.

One Camo Cake that Doesn’t Want To Hide

Camo cakes are a unique kind of cake for the hunters or military personel you may have in your family. They are a different kind of cake idea that can be fun for the right occasion. This camoflage cake above is a simple 2 leverl or two tier cake complete with all camo markings and white fondant or modelling chocolate deer antlers on top. It appears as though each cake tier is covered with an earth tone of fondant and smoothed out.  It then appears to be accented and detailed with different colors of food coloring and icing. This sporadic, striping and pattern work creates the illusion of various colors of leafs. This is what gives this cake the camoflage effect.

This is a cake that would certainly appeal to hunters and outdoorsy style people. The white fondant or cholate antlers on top make a nice added effect to kee the cake design on a hunting type of theme. This is one style of cake that you may feel comfortable making for that special someone in your life. It’s a nice creative cake design.
