It's been a few weeks but I realized I never posted a close up of this Cotton Candy Birthday Cake! My birthday girl had put in this request months before her birthday after seeing a cotton candy cake on @cakebycourtney Instagram! This strawberry and cream cake was topped with sprinkles and vanilla cotton candy - to be honest it didn't turn out exactly how I had pictured but my daughter loved it!

My Best Nine!!! I was extremely nervous to put myself out here in a world with so much talent and creativity - how would my little place measure up?? To be honest nervous was an understatement... So thank you!! Thank you to each follower, to each "like" to each comment! Thank you!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ So excited to share even more with you in 2018 - wishing all of you the Happiest New Year's yet!

The easiest Christmas treat ever-grab your littles and make these reindeer pops! If you don't want to make the rice crispy treats save yourself some time and buy the pre-made squares! Melt a few chocolate chips for the antlers and to "glue" on the eyes and nose.. That's it! You are done!! The perfect treat to hand out to friends or to snack on while watching your fave Christmas movie by the tree! . . . . . . . . . . #imakecakes #ilovetobake #shellymakescakes #cakes_byshelly #letsgetthispartystarted #cakesofinstagram #reindeer #antlers #festive #party #details #rudolph #christmas #treats #kidstreats #makelifesweet #pinkandgold #winter #ricecrispytreat #marshmellows #homebaker #yum #makememories #holiday #bakingeveryday #holidaybaking

"Happiness can be found in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light..." Wise words from Dumbledore--I've been trying to focus on gratitude (like so many are doing this month).... Its amazing how one day it can come so easy and other days I have to search... Definitely a practice I need to incorporate all year through! Choosing light today! What are you most grateful for???? . . . . . . . . . . . . #imakecakes #ilovetobake #shellymakescakes #cakes_byshelly #letsgetthispartystarted #cakesofinstagram #birthdaycake #birthdaysarethebest #makelifesweet #fondant #cake #cakeoftheday #gratitude #givethanks #blessed #dumbledore #harrypotter #sharegoodness #light #quotes

Pumpkins, spice and fall in the air has me reminiscing about these spiced vanilla sugar cookies! (and wishing for @thelilysage to throw another elegant party!) starting to think about what to make next week for Thanksgiving - what are your favorite dishes? Are you assigned a food dish to bring to dinner?

Let's just take a moment to talk about the vanilla butterscotch icing used on the cake I posted yesterday.... So smooth, so creamy, and the flecks of vanilla bean just make me happy 😍😍😍 I did slightly modify the recipe I used from #cakebycourtney but seriously guys I could have eaten this by the spoonful! . . . . . . . . . . . #imakecakes #ilovetobake #shellymakescakes #cakes_byshelly #letsgetthispartystarted #cakesofinstagram #birthdaycake #birthdaysarethebest #makelifesweet #dripcake #buttercream #butterbeer #homebaker

Butterbeer cake????? Sure I've heard butterbeer is a thing...especially if you are a Harry Potter fan.... But never had it and honestly wasn't sure what the flavors even were so I hit up Pinterest and could not be happier when I realized @cakebycourtney had a recipe! I love her...LOVE her...and was super excited to try out one of her recipes! . . . . . . . . . . . #imakecakes #ilovetobake #shellymakescakes #cakes_byshelly #letsgetthispartystarted #cakesofinstagram #birthdaycake #birthdaysarethebest #makelifesweet #dripcake #butterbeer #buttercream #butterscotch #yum #homebaker #trynewthings #cakebycourtney

This right here.... Is amazing. Ah-MAZE-ing. And as silly as it might sound, it tastes even better out of a goblet. Actually, that's not silly - any drink tastes better out of a goblet. . . . . . . . . . . #bestdrink #traderjoes #jalapeno #lemonade #limeade #summersippin #trynewthings #ineedarefill #cheers

Just got back from playing with some of my most favorite friends.... Girls trips are always a good idea.. And so is dessert in place of dinner! We got to try so many fun restaurants this last week, I loved it! Especially this creme brulee pastry!
