Magical Monday - Mystical Creatures

It's another Magical Monday over at Paper Cupcakes! This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog the challenge is brought to us by Audrey E. and she wants us to use something mystical creatures such as a fairy, angel, unicorn and/or mermaid.... etc., you got the idea. This was a fun challenge and I chose to do a fairy and a unicorn image by Paper Cupcakes. I colored both images with my Bic Mark-its. Used scrap paper on both cards as well.

This week flew by with business and adding a cake to it made my time a bit stressful, but I love how it turned out. I gave away 2 cakes at our school auction. They got a pretty nice donation for this and I was to make a cake of their choice up to a certain size and it had to be a cake flavor that could come out of a box. This cake was for a 5 year old little girl. She wanted pink horses and this is what I came up with. I made the horses out of color flow which is a soft flow icing that hardens. I made these days ahead of time and made two of each horse just in case one broke. I also made the flowers ahead of time too. Anyway, I spent Friday putting it together and grandma picked it up on Saturday. The larger horse was a little long so I had to attempt to cut it down without destroying it and so that is why it doesn't line up so well in the bottom left corner, but I think the overall cake still looked lovely for someone that hasn't had a cake lesson in her whole life and I hope Shelby loved. The cake was half strawberry and half white, yum yum... Such a girlie cake and fun too!




Well, thats it for me and I am now headed for bed. We were gone all day yesterday from morning until late night, then had Eric's out of town cousin and his son over for dinner tonight so I am ready to crash! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving me a message if you did! Make it a great week!
