Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

This weekend I wanted to test out a new recipe I received from a friend who is a snickerdoodle cookie fan. Since the cupcakes were not going to be served until the day after I made them, I opted out of the 7 minute frosting that the recipe called for and used a sweet butter frosting instead. While the sweet butter frosting was tasty, I will try the next batch with the 7 minute frosting to see the true difference. These will definitely be made again.

Peacock Birthday Cake

This is a Peacock birthday cake I did over the weekend. It was a rather intimidating order because the birthday girl is also a cake designer.. and a fantastic one at that. All of the accents are made with fondant except for the feathers, which are real. The bottom picture of the bows is the back of the cake. The cascading feathers down the side came out better than I had imagined.
