Another Aggie...

Once again...an aggie baked good... haha they are hit around here! This was for the owner of the company I work for. He was turning 78! A very old ag' :) So I did a chocolate WASC cake with buttercream and a Buttercream Transfer for the aTm seal!

This took a couple tries and few lessons learned but finally got it down... not perfect though :/

I was very happy with it even though I felt like it was a caketastrophe between the buttercream not coloring to maroon correctly and a couple tries with the transfer ...it wore my evening out for sure!

All in all....I'm happy with it and even though he doesn't like celebrating his birthday, I hope he enjoys my hard work! Thanks and Gig Em'!

Under The Sea....

Remember the days where you wished to be something like a mermaid? or an astronaut? I mean those were they days for sure! This was for a little girl in my family who turned 5 and she wants more than anything to be a mermaid! it was by far the cutest thing in the world. I wish her luck on her venture towards life under the sea! haha

My favorite part of this cake was the sand! It was Nilla Wafers and brown sugar dumped in the food processor...SO GOOD!
I also had to make some cupcakes for all the little kids that were coming to...18 kids +18 doses of sugar= good luck to the host! haha

Blueberries & Butter

Blueberries and Butter....what more could you ask for?? I made these homeade last night. AMAZING! I could eat these everyday, and make them because the kitchen smelled like warm butter for at least a day .

These blueberries were so fresh and sooo yummy!
Nothin like melted butter...

Little sprinkle of sugar on top!

TA DA!! The sugar on top gave it a crunchy, struesel like topping without all the calories. Definitely a great way to start your day!

Strawberry Birthday!

I recently baked a Strawberry WASC for an employees birthday! I really wished I would have put a cream cheese frosting but I topped it with a pineapple frosting instead. Still turned out Yummy!
I added strawberry puree in with the batter with a strawberry cake mix! It was amazing!
Man...I so need a better camera. This picture does not do this justice! Take my word...it was yummy!

I recently got volunteered to do a cake for a baby shower and she wanted it to resemble the invite. I tried by best and my frosting was getting a little runny near the end so my dots on the side don't look that great :/ oh well. I just hope everyone gets to eat some tomorrow! YAY!

I'm not sure if I've emphasized how much I LOVE WASC(White Almond Sour Cream) Cake....

Buttercream Love...

And when WASC and Buttercream Love come together :)

Finished Cake

Cake and the invite
So yummy!

Georgia Peach

So I found a recipe for Peach Buttercream and couldn't resist :)

Although this cake looks good and tasted good I did forget eggs...my bad! But it actually just made the cake REALLY moist, which everyone loves, so all is good!

The ingredients for the AmAzInG Buttercream( that's peach puree in the glass by the way)

My beaters broke on me half way through and plopped powdered sugar everywhere but I went with it and got my spoonula( the best tool ever).

Pretty cake that I didn't feel like decorating


May cause EXTREME Drooling!




The cake was so moist there was a little batter that wasn't cooked( probably because there were no eggs) but no reason to worry about it not being good for you
Font size
I will definitely make this cake again! It was easy, fast, and VERY good! Here is the recipe for the Peach Buttercream and the link so you can buy a spoonula Its so worth it!


Peach Buttercream

3/4 cup butter

28 oz powdered sugar(buy a 32 oz bag but don't put all in because its super sweet)

2 peaches, peeled, chopped, and pureed.

Cream butter and alternate adding puree and powdered sugar.

Gig Em'

WHOOP!Lots of aggies in the family. My stepdad just graduated from the Masters Program and I still have some years to go but we had a party to congratulate him. I just decorated some plain ole sugar cookies( store bought...I know its a disgrace to my baking) with store bought frosting( second disgrace) and decked them out aTm style. I thought they turned out very cute. I know the picture quality is bad but hey its a camera phone. I need a digital one soon. Maybe with my summer money!
