Happy 18th Birthday, Emily

My brother in law's sister turned 18 on March 28th, so I made a cake for her.  I used fondant again, and this is the second one I've done with fondant.  It went okay, but I only had an hour to decorate it, so it's a bit sloppy.  I made the fondant instead of buying it, and it tasted 100% better than the wilton stuff.  Happy Birthday, Emily!  Love you!

Mary Kay

I have recently become a Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant, and had Career Conference this weekend, so I decided to make some Mary Kay cookies.  Hope you like them.  Let me know if you need any Mary Kay products.

samples for september

A friend of mine from Eureka is getting married in September and she's thinking about having us make favors for her wedding.  I wanted to help with the decision making so I sent her some samples to try and win her over.  Now she has to decide if she wants us, and which ones she wants.  Should be fun!  Thanks Kristen!

Raspberry Lemon Cupcakes

I was trying to figure out some new recipes for a bridal shower coming up, and this is the first one I came up with, it's fresh raspberry cake with lemon buttercream.  I wanted  a cake that was light and fresh to go with  a spring like theme.  I think I nailed it, these were delicious!

Here are the cookies that I made for St. Patrick's Day to take up to my sister's in Arcata.  They're sugar cookies with a "hint of lemon" royal icing.  The icing is so delicious with the lemon in it..yummm!!  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!
