Be Inspired Wednesday #106 - Halloween 3D!

Once upon a time, there was a girl --- who WON A CRICUT CAKE! Long before I was asked to be a part of the Cuttlebug Challenge Design Team, they had a wedding week celebration and all you had to do was leave comments on all the posts. I couldn't believe it, but I won the Cake machine! I received the Cake machine a few weeks ago and did some preliminary cuts (see below). This was my first cupcake project and I have been waiting for this challenge. Because I received the Cricut Cake from the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, I thought it was only right to say thank you by doing a project for THEM! :)

So while you can tell that I am a horrible cupcake decorator, at least you can tell that the Cricut Cake makes up for my lack of ability!!!

Let me tell you, I LOVE the Cricut Cake! I will definitely be baking more for sure. It cut fondant like it cuts paper. Sometimes it looks like the objects smoosh, but you can just straighten them back out. Obviously, you can't cut anything too small, but other than that, it was really impressive!

I used Wilton pre-made fondant that I got at Michaels. I just added the Wilton icing coloring to it.

I did choose the drippy goo looking frosting. It was REALLY hard to work with! It felt like glue!

If there are any marks on the fondant, that's from my handling and not the cake. I was a little rough on it and my nails hit it on more than one occasion.


Now head on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog and see what the other ladies have done for their 3D projects! 

I will be home from Europe on the 25th and I'm sure I will have plenty of stories to go in my blog posts!

These look fabulous!
I don't like sweets, but I am definitely looking for creative ideas and activities (learning to be a boy's mom).
