Fruit Tart

This is the fruit tart I just made. I could hardly stop my family from eating it
when I finished.

For the topping I used strawberries, kiwis, blueberries and blackberries (although the recipe called for raspberries, it still came out great).

The filling was simple. I just used cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and spread it into 
a graham cracker pie crust.

Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These are the coconut cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. The cake is made from scratch, coconut flavored. The frosting was also made from scratch.

I used the extra coconut to garnish the top and sliced some strawberries to put on top. I was inspired to make these cupcakes by my favorite Italian restaurant, who makes a cake similar to this.

Rainbow Cupcakes

This is the first rainbow cupcake I made, back in April 2009. I made the cake from scratch, using a vanilla recipe. I separated the batter into six different bowls, dyed each a color and layered it one by one into the cupcake cups.

S'mores Cupcake

This is a s'mores cupcake, with a graham-cracker bottom and marshmallow filling inside. I made this back in February 2010.

Easter and Spring Cupcakes

These are the bunny easter cupcakes. I used box cake mix for the cake to save time.

I used vanilla icing, orange jellybeans for the nose, marshmallows for the ears, and black-gel icing for the eyes and smile.

These are the spring cupcakes. The cake was also box cake mix, from the same batch.

I used vanilla frosting (dyed light blue), coconut (dyed green) for the grass, jellybeans for the eggs and Peeps marshmallow birds.
