DIY 3D Yorkie Cake

.Cakes by Raychel

It's been a few years since I created this 3d Yorkie Cake and it came across my timehop today. I just wanted to share it with my readers. 

This cake was a challenge. To say it was time consuming is an understatement, but the cakes you're most proud of are the ones which took the most time. 

The base of this "YORKIE" cake was white cake. It was a small cake, so I used two 6" rounds & two 4" rounds. I stacked them on top of each other and carved it out slightly. Then, I used rice krispie treats for the front legs and the head. Use a cake dowel to hold the head on the cake.

When you're covering it in fondant use a thick layer, then carve grooves into it making strands of hair. 

Here are some items I used creating this Yorkie Cake...

These cuties were my inspiration!

Rustic Texas String Art


Like most Texans, I'm proud to live in the lonestar state. This Texas String Art is the perfect way to show my Texan pride and I love the rustic feel of the stained wood and twine combined.

My brother and my new sister in law (3 weeks married)  made these as Christmas gifts for the siblings. We encouraged them to start their own Etsy page. 

You will have the option of stain color, string color, and state. It makes the perfect gift and it's one of the biggest string arts I've seen on Etsy. They take custom orders too. 

This Home State String Art looks great anywhere in your house. Next to the fire place or hanging above it.

Which state would you choose?

Exposed Rainbow Cake. Sweet Friday.

Rainbow Cake Exposed!

If you're a huge lover of exposed cakes then you will love this beautiful Exposed Rainbow Cake. There is something so rustic and gorgeous about an exposed cake. I just love them.

I'm not a big fan of icing, so this is the perfect amount of sweetness for my sweet tooth. 

I used Ameri-Color Food Coloring in Red, Orange, Yellow, Leaf Green, blue, & Sky Blue. You can get your own pack here...
(click the picture)

If you have just one cake pan this may take awhile; it will be worth the wait.

#1. Mix white (even yellow) cake mix with your Ameri-Color Food Coloring until it's blended. Put the colorful mixture into a cake pan and bake. Do the same thing for each color in the same sized cake pan. 

TIP: If your cake is cooked too golden for the beautiful colors to show use a serrated knife and cut around the cake edges. Freeze the cake for 15 minutes before doing so. This will create less crumbs as you're cutting. A better option is to find a large bowl big enough to use as a cutter. Like an over sized cookie cutter.

#2. Once your cake is cooled, ice the top with your favorite icing.

#3. Stack your colors in the order you would like. Press down firmly.

Tip: If your tall cake is too wobbly put it into the fridge. The stiffer the frosting the sturdier the cake.

#4. Place a long cake dowel inside the cake to keep it from falling over.

#5.  Create Sprinkles from crumbled cake pieces for the top of your rainbow cake.

DIY Rainbow Flag...

This rainbow flag is ribbon folded and glued over a cake dowel. Cut and heat seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't frey. Easy as pie (or should I say cake).

Save some of your batter from each cake color to make rainbow cupcakes. Just like these Camo Cupcakes my friend made a few years ago. Check them out!

Conceited Lipstick from Younique

This color looked too PINK for me, so it's been sitting in my makeup stash since September. 
Let me tell you...

Conceited Lipstick from Younique is gorgeous! I'm loving it. 

Not only does this color look good on my skin tone it looks good on all skin tones. 

Look at those lips!
