Mario Brothers Cupcakes

My friend Laura asked me to make her some Mario themed cupcakes for her son's 7th birthday. She sent me a pic. of some done by another artist for inspiration. When I got the picture, I thought, "Wow! That's amazing. I can't possibly do that."

I'm not trying to toot my own horn here, I promise. But, sometimes I am amazed by what I am able to do...what God gifts me to do. I cannot take credit for His gifts.

I can do nothing that God doesn't wield my hands to do.

Often, before I start on a difficult project, I pray that God would guide my hands, give me patience and allow me to glorify him through my talents.

And I always remind myself of the verse, Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men. Coll. 3:23.

It's what keeps me bringing my best work forward.

Wild Cookies-Zebra and Giraffe Prints!

New cookie designs on my Esty store!

I've been working on zebra and giraffe print cookies for a custom order.

I think they turned out pretty well, but there are definitely some things I'll do differently next time.

Every new cookie design comes with t a learning curve for sure!

Thomas the Train Cake

I was nervous about making this cake! The last time I tried it, over 2 yrs ago, it was turned out ok...nothing to take pictures of! I was certain that my caking skills had improved in two years time.

But, carving a cake always, always, always makes me nervous!!!

This cake ended up waaaayyyy bigger than I thought it would. It was supposed to feed 35 and I think you could probably get 50 servings out of it.
