Last night was the series finale of LOST, which left all of use wondering that the heck just happened ?!? Not that I was expecting to have all my questions answered... Anyway, we had a couple people over to watch the finale so, of course I couldn't resist and decided to make some cupcakes. I didn't want to use the Dharma symbol as Dharma wasn't such a huge part of this season but I still wanted to have some thing related to the Dharma initiative. So these are the cupcakes I came up with:

Bird Baby shower cake

This is the first official Cakes by Lala order! The top layer is strawberry, made with fresh picked local berries, the bottom layer is almond. Both filled and covered with chocolate butter cream and fondant details. It was made to match both the invites and the plates. It turned out really cute! And most importantly I am told it was really tasty.

This was the first time I did a fondant covered base. It tied in the vines from the invites nicely. It was also a good way to tie in a little more of the blueish teal from the plates.

Playing with the cricut cake!

I haven't had too much free time lately to play with my cricut cake machine but this is a cake I did last week for fun. It wasn't anyone's birthday but I wanted to see how the font worked.
So far I am really enjoying playing with it but I still have a lot to learn
