New Venture-Custom Cookies!

I have been dying to make these adorable sugar cookies for awhile. I finally got on the stick and made a test batch after my friend asked me about making some for her daughter's first birthday.
I was very happy with the way turned out, although they are way more time consuming than I ever imagined.
I spent the next 5 days perfecting the recipe, rolling the dough to the ideal thickness and testing the perfect cook time in my oven. I think I finally have it.

Looking forward to making many more of these!

Pottery Barn Peace Cake

My friend Emily contacted me a few weeks ago about a cake for her future step-daughter, Hannah. Emily was planning a surprise birthday for Hannah's 9th Birthday. Emily wanted me to design the cake around on Pottery Barn's peace sign quilt. Great idea! Who doesn't love Pottery Barn?

Here is a picture of the inspiration.

Here is a picture of the cake.

This was so fun and girly. I loved everything about it...except when I gave my thumb a 2nd degree burn heating some marshmallow fondant! Ouch!

Burn and all, this was a great cake!

Happy Birthday, Hannah!

Spooky Halloween Cake

I love Halloween! Makes me feel like a kid again. I made a test cake the other night for Halloween and this is what I came up with. Love it? I do!

It's iced in buttercream and the skeletons, pumpkins, sign, and scary house topper are all marshmallow fondant.

This would make the cutest centerpiece for Halloween. I'll be making it again for sure...a little closer to the actual day-Ha!
