It took some time, but I think this cake came out awesome! :)

This cake is for my niece Kimberly. We are expecting baby Dexter in October!!! Can't wait to meet him! :) I think we all had so much fun making this cake. It isn't finished just yet, I am still trying to work on the finishing touches with Josh helping me out too! LOL! I have everyone helping out except my neighbor! :P
Maggie, Kim, Crystal, and Kayla were all such a huge part in creating this materpiece. From making the fondant, baking the cakes, coloring and making (c&m) the spots, c&m the stars, c&m the buckles, c&m the belts, c&m the rope, and c&m the frosting...the list goes on and on LOL!
Our first day working on it turned into a very productive one, so there really isn't much to do!
I can't wait to see it! :)
These little guys are going to be put on the cake, don't know how or where, but they're too cute to pass up! Josh did an awesome job on the cow ;) And yes, that is supposed to be a rooster.

I had to try them already! :) I hadn't in so long. This time I had my good friend Patti helping me. There's nothing like drinking strawberry daiquiri's and baking!! :) Love it!
We've gotta do it again Patti :)
I used a french vanilla cake mix with vanilla frosting.
Patti did an awesome job doing the butterflies and I did the chubby cupcakes :)
This candy coating is so tastey!
The bottoms were peanut butter candy coating!
Just glorious! ;)
This is where I got the idea from, but I did change it up a little. I used the same shortbread recipe, but changed the chocolate and raspberry to reduced sugar Smucker's strawberry jam! Mmm! I wish I could make this stuff homemade!!! Someday. :)
My goodness what a beautiful sight! :D

This little guy is my inspiration for everything! I'd be nowhere and nothing without him. :D
Makin donuts with Mommy. :) This was his favorite part.
Playing with the extra dough.
Since when have you ever been shy Gordy?
Yummy! Nice and crispy, yet soft in the middle.
He loved this part too!
My favorite baking partner ;) Can't wait til you're old enough to help wash the dishes too! :P Thanks Dad for all the awesome pics. :x
