The hubs had a birthday on Friday so I made him this super duper MINI Cooper cake! Isn't it the coolest? He has worked for MINI for almost seven years so it was the perfect cake for him. My favorite part are the Oreo wheels!
Then I made this ornament cake for Christmas with my in laws. I was inspired by this cake over at KraftRecipes.com. Betty Crocker I am not so I used a box mix but to give it my own little twist, I added half a bag of chocolate chips to the cake batter before baking it. I decorated it with a combination of icing, gel, sprinkles, and candies. I topped it off with an ice cream cone and red licorice lace ornament hanger.
Since I'm showing off some cakes, here is one I made a couple of years ago. It's a mint chocolate chip cake. I added chocolate chips to the batter before baking it and added a little peppermint extract to the icing. It's absolutely delicious. I even topped it off with peppermint treats! This one is always a huge crowd pleaser!
What are your go to Christmas/holiday treats?
I'll be linking up to these wonderfully fantastic parties!
