Me Want Cookie!!

Lets just say its hot here.  It was 95 degrees yesterday and if felt even hotter.  So what do I do on a hot day?  Swim? Nope, bake a cake Hah!  I actually made this last night and it had cooled down nicely.  I made a delicious lemon cake with lemon curd filling and lemon icing -yum!  Too bad its not for us I sent it with my husband to work.  So this week i decided to use the Sesame Street cartridge.  I loved making cookie monster it was so easy.  Just three colors blue, black and white.  And are you ready for this?  I used the Wilton sugar sheets for the black background.  It actually worked great as a background because there was no intricate parts just the outline of cookie monster. Also rolling out the fondant went so smoothly last night and I am guessing it is because of the weather.  I put colored sugar crystals around the edge because I was going to pipe a design around the edge but the icing was just too runny from it being so warm.  So It came out OK.  I need to make a bigger cake because my designs are too small and I want to add multiple things and its really hard to do that on such a small cake. I am really loving my Cricut cake machine. 

Also this week I bought a gypsy!!  I got it from amazon and when it came I thought there was some sort of mistake because it looked like it was preloaded with alot of cartridges.  Well, I was wrong. too bad you can see them but you cant cut with them- hah!  Anyway it took me about 3 hours to register and update this thing!  Then, another hour at least to load all of my cartridges because I think I have around 90 or more.  You would think that having that many cartridges I would at least make some more interesting cakes right? LOL. Well, I'm trying. So maybe next week I might try using the gypsy with the cake machine.  I guess we will have to see.  Thanks everyone for reading

Also only 22 more days until the Disney Classics cartridge giveaway!  Wow! I cant wait!


  1. Cute- Like the sugar icing around the edge- have fun playing with your gypsy (I haven't bought one, not sure about it yet, would love to hear how you like it!)
