Cakes Cakes Cakes and cookies

So since I've been slacking on my blogging. Here are some of the cakes I've been doing since then.

This is probablly my best cake I've ever done...for my sister and aunt's birthday!

A rock n roll cake for my friend daniel's 21st!
For my cousin's 30th (who got thrown from our tube at the lake haha)

And these little cookies were for a presentation to a company that my group had worked on all semester for a company. They were highly impressed ...were not suck ups I sware!

Hope to do some more soon...hmm who's birthday is next??

Gingerbread House Holidays

My mom and I make a gingerbread house every single year! SO when I heard the daring bakers challenge was going to be this I was excited! I then read on to find out we had to make it from scratch....not so fun. I guess that's why it's a challenge right?

Anywho..Thank god my gingerbread baked up nicely...otherwise I would have quit haha. Overall, I think it turned out cute!

I also had some fondant left over from a cake I made a few days earlier so I used it to make a mini snowman! Isn't he cute??

AHH I love that snowman!!

Oh and I thought I would just include a picture of my vegas cake...pretty good considering I had just a days notice! I got paid big bucks from this one! yay!
The December 2009 Daring Bakers' Challenge was brought to you by Anna of Very Small Anna and Y of Lemonpi. They chose to challenge Daring Bakers' everywhere to bake and assemble a gingerbread house from scratch. They chose recipes from Good Housekeeping and from The Great Scandinavian Baking Book as the challenge recipes.
