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!

Mardi Gras


This was a 2 layer 3 tier cake I made for a mardi gras fundraiser at my sister in law's church. I made masks out of fondant and decorated them with royal icing. The diamonds and stripes were fondant painted with a mixture of vodka and food coloring. I hammered a dowel down through all three tiers for stability and when I was almost done, I hit a button on my cake stand that tips it to the side and it almost toppled on the floor. I was able to catch it, but you can see on the bottom layer where it's buldging...it happens!
