My Dudu

Hey guys,

It's been almost one year since I started in this baking/blogging world... and I have to reveal a secret now. Why did I start all this? Well, I love baking but I did all of this for something biggert, the most important person in my life: my son! I'm a proud mommy and I love my son so much! I always dreamed about doing his birthday cakes and this year I baked 2 cakes for him (one for his birthday in school and the other one for his family party).
Also for the family party I did all the candies and cupcakes. I was very happy with everything! He really loved his 2 parties! ;)
His cake for school: vanilla cake filled with dulce de leche and with brigadeiro filling! So Good!! 
His cake: the bottom cake is a vanilla cake filled with dulce de leche and the top tier is chocolate cake with brigadeiro filling.
The cake table! we love Elmo!
Carrot mini-cupcake with brigadeiro frosting. 
Dark chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream.
Happy baking!!

Miguel's Cupcakes

Hey you guys!!

I had a very special order: to make 100 mini-cupcakes for an 1 year old birthday boy. The theme of the party was puppy! His mom ask me for a delicious cupcake so I baked some chocolate with brigadeiro frosting and some vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. So yummy!! And to decorate I made some personalized tags with the birthday boy's name and his age!

 Happy Baking!!

Messy Cake

Hey guys!!

See, I'm updating my blog!! I'm so proud of myself!!! :)
Anyway, I had an order for a messy cake (do you remember my messy cupcakes? No? Here is the link: )
The cake was white chocolate with fresh strawberries ad frosted with marshmallow. So good!!! :) I also used some fondant to decorate it. I really wanted to make a fun and colourful cake and I like the way it turned out! :)
Happy Baking!!

Carrot with walnut cupcakes with "brigadeiro" frosting

Hey guys!

Last week I tried a new recipe: Carrot with Walnuts Cupcake.... and oh my... so good!! I loved it! for the frosting I did some semi-sweet "brigadeiro"which is a brazilian traditional candy (looks like a toffee). I promise that I will post the brigadeiro recipe because it is really good to frost cupcakes or even to use as a filling!
Happy Baking!!

First post in brazilian soil...

Hey guys...

Yep, I'm already in Brazil... and I already miss "my kind of town Chicago"... oh, well....
Now that I'm back to my beautiful country I'm already planning how The  Sweet Fairy Cake will be around here... :)
For starters I'm reading all the cookbooks that my mom have from my greatgrandma and my grandma... it is a lot of recipes and it looks like a treasure chest filled of gold... :) I love it!!
My treasure...
I guess by the end of next week (or even sooner) I'll have news about my creations and the only limit will be yours and mine imagination and creativity!
So, stay tuned on the blog!! :)

Happy Baking!!

Tchau Chicago...

Hey guys!
And so it is.... lol... we are almost leaving Chicago and it's sad because we really wanted to stay but there's nothing we can do, we need to go back. But I wanted to do something for my son like a farewell party in the kids club that he goes to. And he knew what was going on because he gave Shannon (the most sweetest person I have ever know in my lie) a lot of big hugs just like goodbye hugs! I really had to control myself for not to cry... the mommy here was very emotional.
I baked it some dark chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and t was a hit. The kids loved it!
My next post I'll be back in Brazil.... 
Over there in the right corner I see a tiny hand... yep, my son is about to "attack" the cupcakes... lol...

Happy Baking!!

Chocolate-cake box

Hey you guysss!! ;P
Valentine's Day here in the U.S. in on February 14th but in Brazil is in July 12th and my husband is very lucky because this year (just like the year before) he'll get sweet treats for both Valentines Day! :D For the american V-day I made him a very special cake. It's a cake that I saw on Bakerella site a while ago and I always wanted to try. It's a heart- chocolate-box made out of cake and fondant! Super cool!! :) And to get better... the "cake-box" is filled with cake truffles (which are the same thing as cake pops just without the stick).
My hubby loved his gift! The flavour of the cake is dark chocolate and I used cream cheese buttercream (OH MY GOSH, this is so yummy!! I totally recommend!!) that I also got from Mrs. Bakerella and you can find the recipe here.
I hope you like it!! 
And there it is... the "box" of chocolate! yummy!!
Tha cake truffles
More truffles
Oh, oh... a broken heart... ;P

Happy Baking!!
