Jennifer's 21st Birthday!

My little sister's 21st birthday was the past week so we had a surprise party for her! Here are some pictures of the cake I made for her. It was my first attempt at a whimsical cake (aka mad hatter and topsy turvy cake). It was a lot of fun to do!
I wanted to have some fun flavors for her 21st b-day cake so the bottom tier is a yellow cake with a strawberry margarita filling (it was still safe for those under 21!). The top tier was a white cake with a chocolate Kahlua filling. They were both so good!!!!

Little Einsteins and Georgia Tech

Some very good friends of ours came for a visit this weekend. Their little boy's birthday is coming up so I made him a birthday cake. My friend told me he loves Little Einsteins so I went with that and this cake was so much fun!!! The rocket was all cake except for the jets on the sides--those were twinkies. It's covered in red fondant. I also used fondant to make the faces but buttercream for all the hair, eyes, etc.

My friends were headed up to see some more friends of theirs and they wanted to bring a birthday cake with them. So I made this for a Georgia Tech fan.
