Space Shuttle Cake

Cake time again! Time to celebrate 40th anniversary of human landing on the moon! Actually, no, this was the cake I made for my 9-year-old nephew's birthday. Vanilla cake with vanilla cream frosting and lots of Skittles! The boy surely liked it since he ate almost 2 big pieces of the cake! The weather has been nice so far and just hope that the summer will not stay longer.

Hamburger Cupcakes

Another cake post! Guess even the dogs on the plate like them! It was the birthday party of my twin 7-year-old nieces on this past Saturday. There were about 10 kids in the party so I decided to make these fun looking hamburger cupcakes. The buns were vanilla cake and the meat patty was dark chocolate cake. Of course, the ketchup, mustard and lettuce were red, yellow and green creamy vanilla frosting.

I also sprinkled sesame seeds on the top to make them look even more like the real hamburger. And it surely was a big hit in the party. Of course, there were some kids immediately scraping off the sesame seeds off the top. Guess not everybody like the sesame seeds. I got some big hugs from the kids to thank me for making the cupcakes for their party. It was a happy Saturday!

People Camp Out For Fireworks Tonight

The big July 4th US bank fireworks is going to be held tonight from 9pm to 10pm. The one-hour event is going to fill with music and sparkling fireworks. The fireworks is held at Veteran park at Milwaukee lakefront. This is the only day of the year that the city allows people to camp out in the park and watch firework. People have started to set up the tents since 7am this morning. There are usually 200,000 people in this event every year. However, it has been very cloudy and might rain tonight. Wish that the rain holds off so we can enjoy the fireworks tonight!
