Star Wars Cupcakes

For my wonderful brother in law. The only person I know who actually understands these symbols...

These were the trickiest cupcakes I've made so far, lots of little bits to cut out and lots of geometric shapes to try to make match.

There was just no way of perfecting these, but they were fun to make!

Must make some frilly girly cupcakes soon... I'm on geek overload. ><

Have a Halloween-themed baby shower coming up very soon... already have ideas sketched out for that. Then a real Halloween party a few weeks later, not sure what I'll be making.

One of these days soon I'm going to have to suck it up and make some decorated sugar cookies again, but I cringe when I think of the mess. Ugh.

Flash cupcakes

My husband loves the Flash, so I made some treats for him!

Getting easier working with the fondant.

Horde cupcakes

I've been wanting to make Horde cupcakes for a while now. I'm a big World of Warcraft fan, and there aren't nearly enough WoW-related baked goods online!

These are chocolate cupcakes, filled with chocolate icing and covered with black and red fondant.

I made my own stencil for the Horde symbol with an X-acto knife and some thin plastic and then used it to cut out the fondant.

Birthday cupcakes

This was my first real attempt at using fondant. I wanted to make something pretty for a co-worker's birthday party.
The 'quilted' ones were the most difficult... it was hard not to slice right through the fondant.
I filled the fondant cupcakes with whipped frosting to give them more flavor. The tops are decorated with royal icing.
I was afraid people wouldn't like the taste of the fondant ones, so I made some super puffy cupcakes with whipped frosting to make sure everyone was happy. (The yellow lemon ones were the favorites!)

Valentine's Day cookies

More practice with royal icing and flooding.

I tried out some cookie sticks too, and make a bouquet to take to work.
