{Kitchen Play Time} Pirates, Ladybugs and Cakeball Cupcakes

What a FUN DAY in the kitchen I had today.  My boys had friends sleepover last night and they stayed and played with the boys for awhile so....I had some free time to play in the kitchen!  Here is what I was working on.....

OH MY! I LOVE THESE!  These came out so cute!  At least I think so...even my husband thought they were pretty cool!  The bottom is chocolate made with a chocolate peanut butter cup molds, the top part is a cake ball! Then I dipped the cake ball part in pink candy coatings with mini M&M's and sprinkles on top!  This particular one is a strawberry cake ball. The idea was from Bakerella's Cake Pop Book.

Here is a picture of a group of my Cake ball cupcakes!  I JUST love these!  My boys can't wait until dinner is finished so they can devor these sweet treats!

I was asked to work on pirate cake pops for a birthday party in July.  As I was waiting for all my supplies to come in it got me thinking about sugar cookies!  I love these little pirate guys!  THEN I started thinking what else could I make with the same color icing that was already made and in icing bags!  LADYBUGS!! So, There you go...doesn't everyone think  Pirates and Ladybugs go together?

After the boy's friends went home they decided they wanted to work on some cookies too! 

They each did 3 cookies.

They love to get involved with my baking.  However, alot of times I'm working on things for clients and they have to wait until I have a play day in the kitchen like today!

Well got to go...Fajitas are ready!

Pirate Sugar Cookies

I was experimenting with sugar cookies for a pirate themed birthday. I loved the way it came out!

Dr. Seuss Inspired Sugar Cookies

I mainly concentrate on one layer of royal icing sugar cookies, but I went out of my comfort zone a little with these cookies.

{Birthday Day} Pool Party Dessert Table

Here is a few pictures from a Dessert Table I did last weekend for a sweet little girl turning 7 years old.  She was having a pool Texas...with tempatures of 100 degrees! Chocolate and heat do not mix! But we kept everything cool until it was time to eat our sweet treats!

Here is the Sweet Dessert Table I did.  All shades of pink and turquoise.  I used white and pink feather boas, tissue pom poms, and pink lanterns on the table and on the backdrop.  All the printables you see were printed and assembled by me, but we purchased them from Brandy did an awesome job (especially with our rush order)!

{Corporate} Dessert Table

Luckily, I've been keeping super busy this month with dessert tables. However, I have not had a chance to post some pictures of my dessert tables. Here is a dessert table I was asked to do for a Oil Company located here in Midland, TX. TONS of CAKE BALLS!!

 It was a farewell party for a girl that was moving.  So, we added some fun girl colors with feather boas and tissue pom poms.  The venue was a local Mexican food restaurant.

Cake Ball Cake

My first try at a cake ball cake. I wanted to try something different for a client's dessert table tonight :)
I used 3 stryrofoam bases that were 2" H x 8" W which made the entire base of cake 6"H x 8" W.  Then I attached the already decorated cakeballs to the styrofoam by toothpicks. You can pick to flavors with this cake.
