Jessica Rabbit

I made this practice cake this week, just because I wanted to play with my cricut machine.

At 1st it gave me a really hard time. I was fighting with the cricut all weekend. Everything I tried to cut kept ripping. It wasn't making the nice clean cuts it used to.

I was ready to pull my hair out and throw the machine against the wall.

When my boyfriend suggested I change the blade.

Why didn't I think of that?! As soon as I put in the replacement blades it cut perfectly. :)

I just love the way it turned out. Its sexy, but elegant.

Little Ballet Shoes

My little cousin was turning 11 this weekend so I made her a small birthday cake.

She's taking dance classes to I wanted to do something really girly.

I used the Cricut to cut out the ballet shoes, I love the way it came out.

It was chocolate cake, filled with strawberry swiss meringue buttercream, fresh strawberries and chocolate ganache. Soo Yummy!

She loved the cake so much she refused to let anyone cut it :)

Here's the cake

Since I've started useing the Cricut for cakes, I'm surprised at how fast and easy it is. I love my Cricut!
