Wizard of Oz Party

I made this cake for my daughters 9th Birthday. She has been planning this party for a year. She was so excited to finally see it-made her day!!! She also got the Wizard of Oz of BlueRay. We have watched it 3 times in less than 24 hours. LOL
The poppies took me the longest to make. But they turned out wonderfully.
mmmmmm the top layer is raspberry, the bottom is a sugar cookie cake. The center is a raspberry cream cheese filling.

The slippers and Emerald City are made out of cream cheese sugar cookies, then iced and have sugar sprinkles on them.
I entered this over at Decorate to Celebrate! It is a new blog, you should go check it out~~~ Thank for stopping by

Iron Man Cake

Here is an Iron man I made over the weekend for a customer. The cake is chocolate with chocolate filling. The top is made of fondant, and so is Iron Man. It was a little hard to get the fondant to hold the shape while I placed it on the cake. The 6 yr old who it was fro was pretty stoked about it!! Yay! a happy customer-makes life good.

Entrance Remodel


This is the other project I tackled: This is now my entrance room. It was my office. So here is a pic of it as my office. Notice the pony walls, and the cupboards, and of course the fry-sauce colored wall.
That wall's gotta go before tile and carpet!!!!!
My helpers--LOL this is my son and his friend, pulling down the wall!
Here is a picture of the tile I put down. I was going to extend it more down the hall and into the bath. I also had the intentions of doing a really cool pattern. Well, obviously NOT!
I love the Baja Breeze (LOL) and gold wallpaper.
This is my finished formal room. Nice blue and gold where the fry-sauce used to be. The cupboards are gone and the holes are patched. So nice to walk in my front room, and not directly into disaster. Have a fantastic day--thanks for stopping by

Master Bedroom Remodel

I have been expressing my creativity on my walls, rather than on paper lately. This is how my room looked before. I have decided this year is about me. I started in December with my tattoo. This year I bought me a new bedroom set, and carpet, and painted my room. I wanted a more sophisticated look.. What do you think?

Putting on the texture
Ok, pretty much done. On the faux venetian plater wall, I painted the light color, then ragged over it with the dark color. Then wiped off spots randomly. I am totally in love with how it turned out.
And my furniture. My room is so relaxing to me now. It's amazing what a coat of paint can do. Thanks for stopping by-have a wonderful day
