the finished cupcakes & cake

Without further adieu, here are the cupcakes:
Lots and lots of dots - they matched the invites. And I guess people (kids?) loved them, because a few of the fondant circles were missing from the cupcakes. My mother-in-law said she saw someone pick them off. (NOT MY SON!) SO, I guess they were yummy!

My dad is an avid kite flyer. His name is Bob. He is turning 61 on Tuesday. (Happy Birthday Dad!) We celebrated today at their house. My mom made the cake and I fondant-ed the top. I had pre-rolled the blue, but it didn't last in transit so I had to re-roll it. I didn't have my cutting mat with me to measure, so it didn't quite work out along the edges like I planned. Lesson learned. But I thought the kites were cute, and the fondant writer stuff worked out nicely for the string.My first attempts are just that - first attempts. Hopefully no body sends me off to Cake Wrecks, but I'm not exactly trying to get a job at Charm City Cakes either. Just having fun, and enjoying the process!

I've never heard of Cake Wrecks ... but believe me ... you don't qualify!
