Pie with cricut cake

My son made the pie and i made the top. I rolled out pie crust on cricut cake mat covered in shortening. I put in freezer for 15 minutes. I made design on gypsy which is better cause you can work fast while the dough is cold and firm. After i cut it i put it back in the freezer for a few minutes. I brushed egg wash on crust and then put pieces on it and brushed egg on that. The pie says marcs apple pie and has apple shapes on it. The cricut cake cut it out awesome!!

New Carts

I got my carts from yesterday: birthday bash, wrap it up, holiday cakes, elegant cakes, and birthday cakes!!! I am bugging people to let me make them a cake for their occasion just so I can play and learn. I put my cake business on facebook: Creative Cakes by Heather. Now I need to put an ad in the local paper. There is only one other cake person in the paper around here.

Glitter it

I had plain clear glass ornament. Poured in some glitter it by beacon adhesives and swirled it around inside covering entire inside surface. Poured extra back in container. Used a funnel to put glitter inside the glass ball and swirled it around covering all of the inside. Poured excess on paper and used it for the next ball. I am going to put first initial of each child in family with vinyl or alcohol ink using vinyl stencil. I got the glitter it at a c moore right at the front of the store in all the xmas crafts. Happy crafting!!!

A project for a friend

My friends dog died today so I made a remembrance page and put it in a frame. Her dog was 16 years old so she was very special to a lot of people. I used a kit to make this page. The paper, photo corners, tags and letters were part of the kit. I copy and pasted the rainbow bridge poem and a pic of the dog int word and printed on photo paper. I also made my own button threaded with ribbon to match layout.

Cricut cake

This is my four year old's creation. I think she did pretty good piping the frosting. She has been watching me for a long time.

Cricut cake

It cut through so easily. I put gumpaste rolled out on mat in fridge for ten minutes before cutting and ten after cutting and it worked good. I also had pressure on medium. I put edible sugar pearls on design after.

First cricut cake cut

I am babysitting today and let the kids decorate their own personal size cakes. This peace sign is the little girl's favorite symbol so i custom made one for her on my gypsy. I used cricut gum paste, rolled it out on greased mat, chilled it, and then cut it. I should have chilled it a bit more longer but it cut fine anyway. I also chilled it after i cut it so it would hold better when i transferred it to the cake. I will be posting more if our custom creations. We are also having so much fun. These girls have never done anything like this before and i love teaching the young ones new things!
