Love this Weather!

The weather is so nice lately.  Really cool temps make it for nice open windows and card making.  (for me anyway  HaHa)

Cake time!

Work has kept me very busy lately, but last month I had a request for a cake order for this weekend.  I haven't made a cake in a long time so I was thrilled to say yes!

This was for a friend of mine's little boy's 8th Birthday.

When my friend asked me to make this cake I immediately went to and searched for ''fire truck cake'' and came upon this link HERE.
I didn't really like the smooth iced look so I opted for the star tip technique.
I wasn't sure how many kids/people would be at the party so we decided to make cupcakes to go with the cake.

I put half yellow/ half orange icing in a bag to get the swirl effect.  The toppers are made from candy melts. I printed a couple of flames and traced them onto waxed paper.
