1  Delicious Girly Accessories in CHALLENGE 63 ENTRIES by Licer on: June 02, 2011 09:40:55 AM
I LOVE the monthly challenges but have been super busy with a newborn. So This month is the first time in a LONG time that I felt I could participate. And yay for me, it's a food one!

I made this cake for my cousin's birthday. She's a girly girl so I thought this idea would be perfect. The purse is devil's food cake with mint buttercream and covered in marshmallow fondant. The shoe and lipstick are gumpaste so it makes everything edible!

2  Who doesn't like Zebra print and hot pink? in Dessert by Licer on: May 31, 2011 08:25:07 AM
I made this cake for a special girl who graduated high school. It was so much fun to put together. It is a white butter cake with cream cheese and lemon curd filling covered in marshmallow fondant.

3  Rainbow Rainbow cupcakes in Dessert by Licer on: November 18, 2010 02:30:17 PM
I love to make rainbow cakes so when my daughter asked for a rainbow birthday I was all over it. I love to look at them.


The cake is white cake colored in rainbow colors. The rainbows are made from melting chocolate and the "clouds" are just buttercream.

4  Disgusting Toilet cake (You've been warned) may not be suitable for work in Dessert by Licer on: November 18, 2010 02:21:49 PM
A friend of mine wanted a poo cake for his birthday. I said I probably couldn't stomach making it but that I would make a toilet. Well, I think it turned out pretty good. For a poo in a toilet cake....

5  Chick Chik Chik Chicken! in Halloween Costumes by Licer on: November 03, 2010 06:16:30 PM
I saw a version of this costume on the Martha Stewart website last year and thought it was cute but already had a costume made for my daughter. So I made it this year!
I sewed a white body suit and attatched feather boas all over it. Feathers have been everywhere in my house for weeks now! I wanted to make the costume as warm as possible (seeing as we got snow a few days before Halloween, yuck) I then sewed a hat with earflaps and attached more feathers and a stuffed felt comb. I bought the tights and made the feet from two dish gloves with shoes inside. I made the beak from cardboard covered in felt so it was comfy and warm. She loved running around the house shouting, "Bok Bok Bok!"

6  Re: Your Best Pumpkin Recipes!! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Licer on: October 08, 2010 04:47:49 PM
Definitely Turtle pumpkin Cheesecake. I just made it today and can't wait until tommorrow night when I get to eat it!


Crust:

1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
Filling:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
4 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
5 eggs
Topping:

1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 oz. dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup Caramel Sauce
Method:

Heat oven to 300 degrees.  Wrap foil around sides and bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan.  Spray bottom and sides of pan with cooking spray.  In a small bowl, mix cookie crumbs and melted butter. Press mixture on bottom and one inch up sides of pan.  Set aside.

In another small bowl, mix flour, pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin.  Set aside. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat cream cheese at medium speed until smooth and creamy.  Gradually beat in brown sugar and granulated sugar until smooth.  Beat in eggs one at a time at low speed just until blended.  Beat in pumpkin mixture until smooth.  Pour liquid over crust.

Bake 1 hour 15 minutes or until outside of cake is set but center still jiggles slightly when shaken.  Run a knife around edge of pan to loosen the cheesecake. Turn oven off and prop door open at least four inches. Allow to rest in oven for 30 minutes. Remember, cheesecake is not like cake and may not seem done when in fact it is!

Cool pan on cooling rack for 30 minutes.  Refrigerate at least six hours before serving.

Just before serving, run knife around edge of pan to loosen cheesecake, remove side of pan. Sprinkle pecans over top of cheesecake.  In a small microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate and vegetable oil uncovered on High (100%) for 1 minute to 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring once halfway through, until melted.  Drizzle chocolate over walnuts. Drizzle with Caramel Sauce.

7  Cakeaholic in Dessert by Licer on: September 13, 2010 10:31:14 AM
I used to make all sorts of crafty things but lately I have been obsessed with cake. The best part is that people want me to make them for them so I don't have to have it sitting around the house calling my name!
I have seen quite a few versions of teapots online and thought i'd try my hand at it. It was a little tricky to drape the fondant over az sphere but I think i'm getting better.
Sweet little turtle for a little girl turning one.

A little boy specifically wanted this exactly how it is. I'm not usually a fan of using non edible things on my cake but it was his party!

I made this sweet kitty hat for my daughter and I am so happy that I finished it. I am so bad at starting something and then never finishing it. I got the pattern from ravelry.

9  Cupcake bouquet and a few others in Dessert by Licer on: April 24, 2010 01:15:05 PM
I have been doing so many cakes lately and am really learning alot. I made this cupcake bouquet yesterday for my Mom's 60th. It turned out pretty good but I learned that in order to make the cupcakes stay on better in the future I need a denser cake.


I made a topsy turvey cake for a friends birthday. Everything was going perfectly until the last minute when it decided to not want to stay upright. So I tore off all the fondant and used the cake to make these for her instead.
A burger cake I made for some friends of the family.

10  Vintage Snow Machine Cake in Dessert by Licer on: April 13, 2010 12:35:20 PM
A friend asked me to make a cake replica of her husbands vintage Mercury Snow machine. I don't have a ton of 3D cake making experience but I love the challenge. I deliver it tomorrow and I hope everyone likes it!






Oh yeah, it is brown sugar pound cake carved and covered with classic buttercream and marshmallow fondant. Everything is edible except the handle bars which is wire covered in fondant.
