“Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.”~ Jim Davis

Last week so cake crazy! I made a birthday cake for Sean, birthday cupcakes for him to take to work, a birthday cake for my adorable niece Elly, and a batch of vegan cupcakes for Sean's birthday party. I have never made so much chocolate cake in my entire life. The batter was flying! LOL

Sean's birthday is on Halloween so we had a small cocktail party after trick or treating. It was a blast. We have made some great friends here.

Sean's birthday cake. Agnes designed the cake. She wanted her daddy to have a spooky cake!


Sugar skull cupcakes for Sean's work & his birthday cake. Agnes designed the cake. She wanted her daddy to have a spooky cake!


TRICK OR TREAT! AHOY MATEY!



We also made sugar skulls for our Dia de los Muertos ofrenda. I made a sugar Virgin de Guadalupe. She turned out so beautiful. It was so much fun making these with Agnes. It was her first year to decorate some all by herself. The one thing that sucks about making these is every year I have to make at least one more. This year we had to make one for Sean's dad Jim. I think it was really good for Sean to make it.

Virgin de Guadalupe. She turned out so cool.

Here is the cake I made for Elly. I was so happy with how it turned out. Elly loved it!

Awwww Michelle,
those are really beautiful cakes. I can only imagine how busy you're preparing all of them. Lucky, that your little princess is quite talented too.

Love to see all of you really putting cute costumes for the halloween. I bet it was fun!

Thanks girls! These two cakes were a lot of fun to make. We love Halloween! I can't wait to see what Agnes makes us dress up as next year!
