So much to do, so little time....

So the past few weeks have been a hectic and confusing time for the Cakery Fakery.  We went to Niagara Falls for a week which really backed me up.

However when I got home, I started creating and playing with polymer clay creations which are now included in my etsy shop!  I als have some fun new items, so I'd love it if you checked them out!

These are just a few.  I have new fake ice cream sundaes in my shop as well and more Fake Cupcake Christmas ornaments!

How can I be so BLAH on a Friday???

OK, so I have a busy bee lately filling custom orders of cupfakes and more than happy about it! 

However the last two days I have been so BLAH.  I don't have a reason why.  Could be the rain, who knows.  Trying my best to shake the blahs.  So I am making eggplant for dinner which I love.  Food to lift the spirits?  Wouldn't be the first time lol!

Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend!  If you are bored right now or feel like spending a little dough on a little dough, come to my etsy shop lol!

THE most awesome of awesome polymer clay creations

OK people.  I am always looking for fun, cute, sweet, cupcake-y stuff.  But THESE items?  Oh boy they had me salivating to get money into my paypal account!

This etsy seller "blamethemoon" ha created these hilarious (but sweet as can be) baked goods characters!  They seem to have anger management issues, but I think that is what makes them so incredible!  The expressions on their faces so lifelike!  I can see these bad boys having nightly gang meetings on the kitchen countertop behind the toaster oven!

You MUST check them out!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/blamethemoon?ref=seller_info

See what I mean?  I cannot even decide which one is my favorite, seriously.  I think it may be the pink cupcake with the fork!  She even gave these guys the funniest names like M.C. Cheesecake and Notorious C.U.P.   How can you not love these?  Made totally by hand using polymer clay.  I wish I had the talent that some others do, I'd be making these critters all day long!

So if you like these, show some love, go visit her shop, look around and show some love!

Katie Perry Cupcakes, Babies with the Suds, just another day....

Hi everyone!  Well, my Katie Perry inspired set of cupfakes have been shipped!  I am praying that the girl who ordered them is as happy with them as I am.  

So last night I slept with the air conditioner on, and this morning, as I came downstairs, I put on a sweatshirt and socks.  I love that in-between world we live in when Summer is turning into Fall.  Two completely different animals!

The toddler (a.k.a. Cakery Fakery Vice President of Clay) is sick this morning with what seems like an end of Summer, beginning of Fall cold.  Nothing serious.  But enough to make me feel sorry for her with her glassy eyes and stuffed up nose.  After this post, its off to the pharmacy I go for something to make her feel better???

Oh yeah, here is a pic of one of the Katie Perrys!

Stumped for a cute gift? Want to give a little something to say Thanks, get well soon, or "just because"? 

Need a nice gift for a teacher? Baby Sitter? Dog Walker? Neighbor? Friend with a sweet tooth? 

Making a gift basket and want to include something different in there?

I think the fake cupcakes (or "cupfakes" as I call them) are great as tokens of love and appreciation! 

Guaranteed to put a smile on the recipients face! 

If you are making a goodies or sweets themed gift basket how cute would one of these be in there? All edible stuff and then suddenly, they unwrap one of my cupfakes? What the??? Sure to bring smiles! AND a good way to remember that goodie gift basket always!

I have many themes and "flavors" to choose from! Including Autumn themed, Halloween themed, girly themed, ice cream parlor themed, I even carry a "Tony Soprano" themed cupfake! 


Maybe the person who needs a little gift is you????? 

These are great when you group different ones together to display in a cake stand, cake plate or curio cabinet! Sweeten up your world!!!!!!!! Sure conversation starters and will bring a sense of whimsy and fun to any room. 

I know this is a lot of self promotion, but my cupfakes are collectible because they are all one of a kind. 

The measure a little larger than an actual life sized cupcake and weigh a little lighter than a paperweight. Come see, I think you'll like them!

Tuesday Blahs....

Most people get Monday blahs or even Sunday blahs, me included.  But today I have the Tuesday blahs.  Not sure why.  I got a lot of item packing done so tomorrow will mean a trip to the post office which I hate.  I really have to start having them do at home pick ups.  Just feeling too lazy to set it up.

I really have nothing else much to say!  What a waste of a blog post huh?

Anyway, if you haven't already, please check out my facebook fan page!
www.facebook.com/thecakeryfakery

But I would just love you to pieces if you took a browse around my etsy shop today???

http://www.etsy.com/shop/frankschick

Maybe you'll find some of my Halloween and Fall inspired faux cupcakes appealing?  A bunch of them look so cute on a cake stand or cake plate on the table or counter.  TRUST ME ON THIS!

Here are some really cute things I've found, and some I've tried and love!

OK, I am a HUGE fan of Yankee candle products.  have been for years and years.  So here is their Vanilla Cupcake wax tart.  I love their tarts, they always smell so nice and last forever!  they also have a Christmas Cupcake scent that I have not tried yet.  But this one?  I'm burning them ALWAYS! 


They also have a vanilla cupcake lipbalm!  You know I have this!  I love love love it!  Not only does it smell awesome, but it is in the shape of one of their jar candles which makes it totally irresistible!  

Here are some other things that I have not tried but I found them adorable in their cupcakey-ness! 









Sooooo, what cupcake products do YOU love?  Share share share! 

Polymer Clay Nightmares!

OK, as much as I love making my own life sized fake cupcakes, I Love love love miniature cupcakes!  Mainly polymer clay miniature cupcakes!  I keep trying to make them, but I am horrible at this.  I so need a tutor!  Anyone of my followers who know how to play with the polymer, please feel free to let me know!  I really need to make these cute little charms and cupcake pendants for myself, because if I spend more money on them, I'm gonna go broke.

Here is a pic of something I'd like to make

More Cupcake Love

As an Etsy seller, I love looking around and seeing what other sellers are offering.  And obviously my search terms usually include cute cup-cakey creations.  On Etsy, you can put together treasuries of things you find that you love and think folks with common interests will also love.  So here is one Cupcake themed etsy treasury I put together for us cupcake people.

Share some love (and some dough!) maybe you'll find the perfect gift for someone????

FRIDAY CUPFAKE OF THE DAY!!!!

This shimmering beauty is actually part of a four piece set I made for a little girls birthday party.  Her mom wanted a table centerpiece for her cupcake themed party, and I think this is going to be a hit!

The Cakery Fakery Party Favors

OK, so although I love to create custome cupfakes one at a time depending on my mood, I really want to get the party favor aspect of my business off the ground. 

1) My cupfakes make great party favors.  People will talk about them, and I'm sure they have enough wine bottle stoppers, tiny picture frames, and bottle openers to last a lifetime.  How many cupfakes do you think they have?  None, I'm sure of it. 

2)  A cupfake is probably not the kind of party favor that will be tossed aside, lost or thrown away.  It is truly a keepsake!

3)  I can custom make them to your specifications.  You can choose colors, themes, decorations etc...  They will be YOUR creation for YOUR event!

4)  Party favors are not just for weddings and showers.  Guests will love having a take-away gift from a Summer BBQ, Halloween Party, Christmas party, birthday party, bachelorette party, you name it. 

5) You don't have to have a huge guest list to order my cupfake favors!  Having a party of five? Ten? It really doesn't matter, I can make favors for events big and small

6) Budget concerns?  I not only make standard life sized cupfakes, I make little minis too! Which obviously would cost less for you.

So if you think you'd like some cupfakes for your next event's favors, just email me at cakeryfakery@yahoo.com.  We can talk about your party, what you need, what your budget is, etc etc.  I would also be glad to show you pics of my work. 

Thanks!

Link to my Etsy Shop

I know I post lost of pics of cupfakes daily but IF any of you loyal followers would actually like to PURCHASE one!  Here is the link to do so!

They really are reasonable prices!  go have a look at the whole collection!

Cupfake of the Day

Every now and then I get inspiration to make truly personalized cupfakes.  Today's cupfake is the Pearl Jam cupfake made for my sister, possibly the world's biggest pearl jam fan!  I have to admit its not as nice as many of my others, but Pearl Jam is a grungy bunch, so here it is! lol

Notice the little pearl next to the polymer clay jar of jam!  Ten is their first album which is also my personal favorite.  The little man you see is the iconic Pearl Jam stick figure logo!
