Ice Cream Cone Cake

 So, I think the cake turned out pretty cute...
The frosting was a bit soft and difficult to work with, but it looked like an ice cream cone...
and my Sienna loved it, and that's all that matters!

All I did was bake a 13x9 inch cake, carve it into an ice cream cone shape, and frost.

P.S. my Etsy shop is back open!

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

These were fun to make!
Sienna's birthday usually comes before the school year starts... but not this year!
She was so excited because she had helped me deliver many cupcakes and balloons to her brother and sister's classes over the years...and it was finally her turn!

These ice cream cone cupcakes were super easy to make and are super yummy too.
I went the semi-homemade route, using a boxed cake mix and homemade buttercream frosting.
The most important part is to not over or under fill the cones.  I found a line inside the cones to use as a guide, so they all turned out pretty uniform and pretty.  I piped the frosting on in a swirl using a plastic bag with the tip cut off. Last...but certainly not least...I added sprinkles and a sour cherry candy to the top.  Soooo easy!

I'm going to attempt to make a ice cream cone shaped cake for her birthday cake, so stay tuned:)

I can't believe my little baby is going to be 6!  
It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant with her and moving out to Nevada (not knowing anyone) with two little toddlers in tow....
So much has happened and changed in the last six years, but she has definitely been the best gift.

Shaving Cream Fight, Anyone?

Wow!  Where did the summer go?
We did so many fun flew by!
I guess the old saying is true, 
"time flies when you're having fun"!

The kids start back at school on Monday, so I hope to be able to post more soon!
Lots and lots of ideas swirling through my head:)
Oh, and I still have my next beading book in the works!
