My youngest requested a dragon cake for their birthday. I had only one day to make it, but I finished!

This is a good example of a basic birthday cake.  Two layer chocolate cake, two colors of buttercream icing, flowers and personalization.

For the last day of skate camp this summer I put together a surprise for all the skaters.  Each one received a figure skate sugar cookie.  This was no small feat as I could not track down a skate cookie cutter in the time I needed, so I purchased a large round metal cookie cutter and using pliers and assorted objects for shaping I bent and curved it to the appropriate shape.

I even made black skates for the boys!  They were a huge hit!
