About Me

My photo
I'm a stay at home mom of 3 boys ages 12, 7 and 2. I have a cake decorating business called Little Miss Muffins Cakes. I love getting new gadgets and trying new products. I also love searching the internet for new cake ideas. I'm a huge couponer and I look for new ways to be more frugal every day. I've more recently decided my family needs to be more GREEN. I'm always looking for ways to repurpose things we've already got instead of throwing them away. I love having a house full of boys but would love to have a little girl! God blesses my life each and every day!

The Greenhouse Cake

My husband told the FFA teacher about a cake I had been talking about doing. It was this great greenhouse and garden. To my delight she ordered it for a celebration of some sort.

It was 2 layers of chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and filling. I started out by making photo copies of the template for the greenhouse. Each side and the roof were made on wax paper with royal icing and then assembled and set on top of the cake. All of the flowers and the vegetables in the garden were done with royal icing as well. The stone path is fondant and cake crumbs for the dirt in the garden.

This was a huge hit in the school. People in the office were calling other people to the office to see it. I was very pleased with the end results even if it took me forever to make it!
