So this week I have been hard at work making all sorts of Halloween goodies. Unfortunately I am a total loser and have forgotten to take pictures of them before the parties :( for the first Halloween party I made Zombie cupcakes. They were chocolate cupcakes with mint frosting covered in "dirt" (cookie crumbles) and I made bones, eyes, feet and hands coming out of them with a couple of grave stones and a sign that read "Beware the Zombies". They won first prize in the creepy desserts contest. :) BTW my son won a costume contest that night to for his rocket ship costume yay!! The second treat I made were candy corn lollipops. They were way more work then they were worth. I am not a tempered chocolate expert but I have done by fair share of pouring molds. The problem was that with the three different colors I was constantly reheating the chocolate and then also the difficulty of keeping the lines strait and not bleeding into each other. The overall effect was adorable though and I topped them off with gift tags that I purchased from etsy. I'm so sad I forgot to get pictures! I will ask around and If anyone happened to take a picture of either treat I will make sure to post it.

I'm so excited that I finally made it to the top 10! The funny thing is that I have been nursing this other treasury all day and it had been doing really well but then I made this other treasury and I was on the front page of the hot list within 1.5 hrs. Wow!
I'm making a spa cake for an 11 yr olds birthday and on the top she wanted a person lounging in a spa chair. I am not much of a scupture but this is what I came up with. I'm pretty happy with it except for the hands. They look like she's swollen :) I had a really good hand on her but when I went to paint her fingernails I slipped and painted her hand :( oh well. I'm baking today and will assemble the cake tomarrow so I will have a picture up of the final product.

I was featured in Etsytreasuryhunter.com today for a Christmas treasury I created :)
Hi! I'm Emily and I have a store on etsy called emmyluucakes. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Emmyluucakes?ref=si_shop
My goal for this blog is to share what I have been up to both in my store and locally. I also want to use this blog to showcase all the awsome treasuries that I find on etsy!
