They look great to me, BMH! I love your image titles. I tee-heed. :D
When I was a teenager, my friend's mom made wedding cakes sometimes, and I used to help her. A few years ago, I was determined to start my own cake company, and then my first baby came along and all time and energy went out the window. I've made lots of cakes and cupcakes, but like a dummy I usually forgot to take pictures.
Here's a little argyle cake I made real quick for a family get-together. I found the pics on my cell phone, my horrible dinosaur phone. So of course the quality stinks. :D

Yay baking thread! I'll need to bake something now to take photos of... Lol, my friends will love this! Actually, my friend and I are already planning to make a giant cupcake so I shall probably subject you all to photos of that :grin:

I love the Argyle cake - so clean and simple, and cute!

Oh dear. lol I'm a decorator by profession (although it's just a grocery). I'm also trying to start up at home. So I have lots to put up here!

Cupcakes made for my store manager at the time's daughters birthday party:


Monster cakes. Made with all frosting and cake.


Graveyard scene for our Halloween party last year. Actually individual cupcakes instead of cake. Tombstones are made of cake.


Cake made for a customer.


Reindeer cookies!


Snowmen. Hard to see due to crappy cell pics.


Owl. Kept thinking of Hoot Hoot the whole time. XD


Disney princesses! Crappy cell phone cam is crappy. ._. But whole thing (cept the princesses) is frosting....


And in about 18 days, I'll have my wedding cake to put up! Companion cube and Pac-man inspired! :D

Starrley - love the argyle cake, so pretty.

I make a cake every year for my kids birthday, but I almost always use one of wilton's shaped pans. Here are a few that I could find pictures of.

I think so, Brain, but can the gummi worms really live in peace with the marshmallow chicks?
I think so, Brain, but if they called them "sad meals" nobody would buy them.

My baking skills have only hovered around things that are more practical everyday foods, and less on the decorative fun things... although I may go there some day!

This one time, I baked a loaf of bread using buttermilk... It was so very tasty!



I also baked this thing that was supposed to be like a big apple dumpling... it wasn't very good...



But I made up for it with this! (The crust is home made, so I count it as a baked good) It was EXTREMELY tasty!

So, in my spare time when I haven't been crafting, I've been going to baking class!! On the downside, I am very bad at taking pictures of what I've made! I'll see if I can dig up one or two. We've made some pretty awesome things in class! :)

So far, I've taken a general baking arts class, breads, pies, cakes, cookies and bars/squares. Pastries will probably be up next!
