This pretty much sums up my day…

Saw this on cake central (by themrsprinkles) and it made me laugh! After the day I’ve had, it is oh-so-tempting to greet hubby at the airport with this divorce cake:

Dream Big!!

They say “if you’re going to dream, dream BIG” So, here are a few more inspirational photos of awesome cakes. I’ve come to realize that cake decorating is an art. Not to dog on the Wal-Mart cake decorators, but any 12 year old could do that stuff. To really be good at this, you have to LOVE cakes and be a pretty a good artist. A whole lot of patience is a DEFINITE plus (Im REALLY working on this :-))

I can do this!!!

I can do this!!!

I have all of the tools necessary for this cake (including the giant cupcake) now I just need to work on that patience factor…

Great Colors!

Great Colors!

I REALLY HATE DORA THE EXPLORER! But I LOVE this cake!! I think I’ll try it minus the cartoon characters!

This one CRACKS me up!!

This one CRACKS me up!!

This picture reminds me of my kitchen right now! Cakes everywhere, icing bags, rolling pin, and mixer all out and covered in buttercream!! The artist who created this cake has serious talent!!

If I could make anything this awesome, I would die happy!

Pretty colors!

Pretty colors!

I love how everything matches in this photo! Even the placemat and tablecloth!

Okay, enough of other people’s work!! I promise to start trying more on my own tomorrow. I failed at cupcakes today… Actually, failed is a little harsh. The cupcakes themselves were delicious. They were even decorated quite adorably (if I do say so myself). The disaster came when I tried to MOVE the cake pedestal to take a picture. The light was terrible, so I picked up the cake to move it near the windows and the base fell off of the stand and the cupcake fell onto my hand… NOT a happy moment. Then, when I went to take a picture of the wreckage, I still couldnt get a good photo! DOOMED! If only the hubster would buy me the SLR camera I’ve been begging for, these things wouldnt happen!!

I LOVE CAKEBALLS!!!

If you’ve never tried a cakeball, you are missing out!! Every single person who has tried my cakeballs has “ooh”ed and “awe”ed and moaned in ecstasy (okay, the moaning was just me). Bakerella had a blog where she turned cakeballs into cupcake pops! I just happened to make up a batch of cakeballs yesterday, so Im definitely going to try making some of these adorable pops today!!!

My good friend, Barbra, is getting married at the end of August. Her colors are pink and brown!! I am making the cake for her shower, but it’s not going to look like this!! The design is top secret, but if it looks like what Im picturing in my head, it will be FABULOUS!!

I love the topsy turvey cakes!!

I love the topsy turvey cakes!!

One day, I will have the patience to recreate this gorgeous cake!! When I do, I will change the colors to pink and black or blue and brown…

I hope LOTS of people order topsy turvey cakes from me!
