Making roses is easier than you think

I got together with a group from the forum where I get lots of tips, help and inspiration. It was a lot of fun and I made a bunch more friends ! I learned even more tips, gave some, loved seeing what everyone was making and learned how to make some cute roses

Star Wars Birthday

Star Wars Cupcakes for school treats

Chocolate & vanilla cupcakes, white chocolate spread and fondant circles.

The star wars cake, a story in itself .... I had everything planned how to, was on time with everything except the ordering of the cakesupplies. The fondant came way to late so I had to improvise. My friend was able to supply me with marzipan (yuck and so no fun to work with when you're used to fondant) for the top part of the cake. And I made swiss merengue buttercream for the bottom cake, and omg this was so much easier and so delicious. Never making other buttercream again ! The top cake has vanilla merengue buttercream & cherry jam the bottom cake has chocolate mousse and strawberry jam.
