Anywho, I hope you had a fabulous holiday; that you ate way too much, celebrated successfully, and spent some time either with the people you love or doing something you enjoy. Isn't that the best way to celebrate our great country?
And, now, on to the cakes. (Horrible segue, I know...I haven't mainlined enough coffee yet this morning.)
This cute monkey was pleased to get to help welcome a new baby. It was a refreshing change to create a baby shower cake with no pink or blue in sight; I know those are the "traditional" colors, but it's nice to do something a little different every once in a while.
This monster cake was definitely blue though. Not "blue" as in sad; trust me he was a happy, friendly monster complete with a spiky mohawk, but seriously blue in color. I iced him in a light blue buttercream, piped on darker blue buttercream "hair" and then airbrushed him with an even darker blue to add some shading and contrast.
There were also some monster eye cupcakes to accompany the cake. Though from the looks of things, this cupcake may be about to become the monster's lunch...
Talk to you soon!
