Lemon Roes Icing, beautiful decorations. DIY

I’m bored. Let’s make lemon cake!

Once upon a time there was a girl named Maddie who didn’t want to study on a Sunday afternoon. And that’s how this pretty pink lemon cake happened. I’m proud to say that this cake is included in an article about me in my school’s newspaper.

Top layer: lemon blueberry. Middle layer: lemon lemon. Bottom layer: lemon strawberry.

Each layer is filled with this incredible vanilla frosting and super tart lemon curd.

It’s all decorated in pretty swirls of this cream cheese frosting.  That recipe isn’t actually for a frosting – it’s really a no-bake cheesecake – but it’s delicious, so I’m not complaining.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sit here and pretend that I didn’t eat this cake for breakfast every day for a week.

DIY cupcake baked alaska tutorial with chocolate, ice cream, and meringue

Baked Alaska Cupcakes

When tasked with coming up with something delicious for a dinner party, I decided to make baked Alaska. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was, but I was pretty sure it had something to do with meringue and ice cream, so that sounded good enough for me. I did some homework and decided to make the tasty treat in miniature.
Pretty little chocolate cupcakes hollowed out
Add in a scoop of strawberry ice cream (homemade, of course)

Pipe on the meringue and go crazy with the blowtorch.

They were absolutely delicious and everyone loved them.
Although, in retrospect, serving them frozen solid right out of the freezer probably wasn’t the best idea.

I suppose I’ll just have to make them again.

Marie Themed Ice Cream Cake

Another ice cream cake! The birthday girl wanted a Marie themes cake from the Aristocats.

Inside are layers of cheesecake ice cream and strawberry ice cream (homemade, of course) and a layer of white chocolate fudge.

 The details were made using white chocolate and then transferred to the cake.

 And painted in luster dust for a little extra shine.

I used white dragees and rolled them in pink luster dust before using them as decoration. It’s a great way to save money and get any color you want!

 This cake was so much fun to make and I’m thrilled with how it came out.

Frosting a block if ice cream felt strange at first, but the birthday girl always gets what she wants!
