Dog Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my friend Gians birthday, He LOVES dogs! This one kind of looks like a teddy bear but everyone knew what it was. My friend picked up this little stuffed dog and I copied him, Everything looks the same except for the color. I think if i gave him longer arms he would have looked more dog-like but it was my first time using Rice Krispies treats to decorate. Actually it was my first time making homemade Rice Krispies treats.. Which were AWESOME by the way! lol.. I ate the leftovers by the next day all by myself =\.. This one I made the same way as the sushi cupcakes, with boxed cake mix, diet soda and 2 egg whites. I used chocolate and vanilla cake mix and layered them, chocolate/vanilla/chocolate/vanilla, so it looked really cool when it was cut into. (I don't have any pictures of that part though)

I wasn't really happy with the way the writing came out
because after a while it all spread out.. Just something I
have to keep working on though! =]

More birthday cupcakes =]

These are homemade chocolate cupcakes with homemade (pink) whipped cream.. I used some tiny pearl sprinkles and premade flowers i found at NYC Cake Supply. I had such a hard time trying to decorate these because I was running around trying to finish them and I wanted them to look really girly, I think they came out nice =]

Sushi Cupcakes

These cupcakes were made for my friend Susies birthday. They were made with boxed red velvet cake, 12 ounces of diet Dr. Pepper and 2 egg whites. We were on weight watchers a few years ago together and found the recipe on the Weight Watchers website. They tasted really good even though the recipe sounds kind of weird, No one knew the difference. I used Fat Free Cool Whip for the frosting and they also have a Cheesecake pudding glaze, which was made with cheesecake flavored Sugar Free Fat Free Jello instant pudding mix and fat free milk. The 'Sushi" was made with Rice Krispies treats cut in half length wise and then dipped in white chocolate and coconut flakes. Then i put some Swedish fish on top and wrapped a sour power strip around them and secured those with a toothpick. She loved them! =]

I had to use toothpicks because I didn't have enough "seaweed" =\
But it was for a friend so she didn't mind =]
I made her a "spa" gift basket with a homemade brown sugar body scrub..
All ready to go =]
