This post has absolutely nothing to do with food. I just wanted everyone to know how much I love my sweet aunt and today is her birthday. Barbara is such a sweet and funny lady. She can be sweet as pie and she can also tell you off. It's a great combination all in one woman. So here's to you Barbara...... HAPPY BIRTHDAY and we all love you!

My family went on vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and we chose the all inclusive plan so we didn't have to mess with finding places to eat. Well I'm not so sure that was the right thing to do because the food was not what I was expecting. They had a buffet restaurant at the resort and that is where we ate most of our meals. There was just always something a little "off" with the food. For example they had beef stroganoff and there were dill pickle slices in the sauce. Then they had meat lasagna with shredded carrots, zucchini and green beans inside the lasagna. Don't get me started about the English peas! They were in absolutely everything. But one thing they got right was the dessert.
Each dessert had a beautiful design on the plate.
This was a banana bread/pudding dessert.
Nummy strawberry ice cream.
Neapolitan ice cream cake. (Best by far)
What an $8.00 Coke???? Not really, it was 8 pecos so about .50 cents.
Mexican vanilla. I used it in some buttercream and it seems to have a more mellow taste to me.

One of the ladies that I work with had a birthday today (Happy Birthday Dawn) and she loves Hello Kitty, as do I, and so I had to make her a Hello Kitty cake. I have worked with fondant a ton but only using it for little things or cupcake toppers. I still need a ton a practice covering a cake with it. I was soooo stressed out last night trying to make this dumb thing, but in the end I'm happy with the way it turned out. Dawn is a rocker chic so that's why the spike collar and skull on her bow.

Sorry it's been so long since my last post but I was on vacation in Mexico. I'll post pictures of that next time.
These are just some cute little Spring cupcakes. Vanilla cupcakes with buttercream and pastel sprinkles and pastel M & M's on top.

Hope everybody has a good holiday. The handle broke twice on this cake. It was really humid and damp here today so it lost some of it's strength. I was able to get a photo of the cake and then had to throw the handle away. :( Oh well it still tasted good! It was French Vanilla and buttercream.
