I am a die hard Twi-hard! I love, love, love the books, the movies and R. Patts (he's my celebribeau). In honor of the release of the next movie in the series, Eclipse, I took a break from creating items for my Etsy store (coming soon!) and designed some toppers, napkin rings and a fill-in invitation for anyone else who shares my love for the Cullens et. al. If you might happen to throw an Eclipse viewing party, maybe these items with fit in with your decor. You may download these items via the links at the end of the post.

In between getting items designed for my upcoming Etsy store, I recently finished a Red Velvet Casino themed cake for a friend's mother's 70th birthday party. You know I tend to stick to my cupcakes - mostly because cakes can be very unforgiving, but I do loves me a challenge and nothing has been more challenging than this cake. I had a whole different design in mind for decorating it, but what I came out with was this:
I'm still getting used to my new camera - so the exposure is off a bit - but there was a decorative spray of stars, hearts, diamonds, clubs and spade shapes on top of the cake which you can't really see. It came out better than I expected if I must say so myself.
For the Memorial Day holiday, I came across this video on making Dogs and Burgers cupcakes - a perfect idea for a summertime celebration. Over the weekend, I decided to put some together with the help of my trusty assistant (aka - The Mini Diva).
This is a really fun idea and they were so easy to make and great for the kids to be involved with. If you make them, I'd love to see how they come out - send pictures! Well, back to designing more adorable items for my store!
