Hole in one.

I don't have a lot of time tonight, but I wanted to share these cupcakes I made for my boss' dad's birthday! He's a big golfer so I thought these would be fitting. I'm sure I'm not the first person to make something like this, but I've had the idea in my mind for over a year and finally had a reason to make them! I made my first batch of golf balls using Oreo truffles dipped in white chocolate...but I couldn't make the little indentations. It looked like a ping pong ball. HA. So I ended up making some marshmallow fondant instead. It worked a lot better, but certainly didn't taste as good. I hope he liked them, I certainly had fun making them!

Here is the recipe I used for the fondant. It can be found on Cake Central.

Easy Marshmallow Fondant


  • 1 16oz tub of Marshmallow fluff
    6-8 cups of confectioners sugar
    2 tsp of flavoring of your choice
    paste colors (Optional)


    Empty contents of marshmallow fluff in large bowl. add flavoring and stir with spoon. If you desire to color the fondant add your desired color at this stage. Then add confectioners sugar two cups at a time and mix with spoon until no longer sticky, then place on large pastry board or mat lightly rubbed with vegetable shortening and knead until smooth and pliable. Roll out to desired size for covering cake.


Every girl needs a cape

For Easter (Yes, that's how late this post is) I made my cousin's little girl a cape. Avery had been wearing her blanket around her neck as a cape for some time, so her mom asked me to see what I could come up with. I don't have much sewing experience, but I welcomed the practice! I think it came out pretty darn cute! 

I basically just drew out a pattern, almost a tear drop shape, and sewed it together like a pillow. I did add piping...something I had never used before. I think it added a nice detail! I also love using quick release velcro on the ties, you know, for safety and all. The "A" is made from a piece of felt, I just hot glued that on so you wouldn't see stitching on the other side.

Unfortunately, you cannot see it in any of these photos, but I put these sweet little gems on the ties around the neck. They were just so adorable! I couldn't resist. Ave is the girliest girlie girl. (Though her mommy doesn't know where she came from!) I LOVE it. So obviously, bling was a must. You can also see some bling on the "A." The ruffle was an after thought, but a pretty good one I think! I was trying to find a way to cover the stitching from the ties and the ruffle was perfect! I used three different kinds of ribbon, layered on top of one another to create it. Again, just hot glue here with a few hand stitches to make sure it was strong enough.

I think the big girls liked it too. hehe I had my pick of models that day.
