I wanted to try out a new cookie cutter I just bought, and here's what came of it. These are shortbread sugar cookies, that are so delicious, and they have almond royal icing on them. These 
make great wedding favors when 

nicely in their cute little glassine bags that I have for them!

My First Cake Tasting

A few posts ago I showed a few pictures of a couple that I made an engagement cake for, Brandon and Kim.  They were up in this area for the holiday weekend, and asked me to make their wedding cake, and I am SUPER excited!  Since they were not completely positive about cake flavors (they knew they wanted to have the cake that I made for the engagement), I decided to do a cake tasting for them.  We did 5 different flavors of cake and 4 different fillings for them to pair with the cake.  I made 50 mini cupcakes, so they got 10 of each flavor.  The cake flavors were  chocolate, vanilla, yellow, carrot and spice, and the filling flavors were bavarian cream, fresh strawberry, chocolate mouse, and mocha mouse.  They were all delicious, but the mocha was amazing!  They will be making their decision soon on the flavors, and their wedding is coming up in May.  Can't wait to do you cake, and for you 2 to finally be married...yea!!

Valentine's Day

I made some cute cookies for Valentine's Day this year, they were sugar cookies with royal icing.  I think that these would make a great favor for a party or shower or even a wedding.  I could pipe the bride and groom's names and the date, so cute!  Hope you all like them!

A Kindergarten Christmas

I know this is a little late, but my sister is a kindergarten teacher at a Christian school in the Bay Area, and she asked me to make a cake for her kindergarten Christmas party. It was a white cake with red and green swirled in it and buttercream frosting. The cupcakes were for my nephews preschool Christmas party, and they're eyes were so huge when they saw them. They were delicious chocolate cake with buttercream frosting!
