Mother’s Day – May 2014

Image

 

For Mother’s Day this year, I thought I would try something that I haven’t before..cookie cakes! Plus what better test subjects then your own family!? 🙂 I made a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe, and a heart shaped pan. Then I just did a little piping on top with some sugar decorations! They both turned out really cute, and I couldn’t be happier with them! The taste was wonderful, and everyone loved them! 

Hoping everyone got to enjoy some time with their mom!

Graduation Order – May 2014

Image

So there’s been a lot of graduations recently, high school, college, kindergarten. You name it, their graduating! So for a sassy college graduate, I made sugar cookies, hot pick with black accents. “Congrats” “2014” “A” all over the cookies! The cookies turned out great, and I had fun making them! I also made egg-less, strawberry cupcakes to go along with them! hot pink, green, and black were the colors of choice. For the cupcakes I added a few small fondant flowers on top of them, along with a couple of edible crystals in the middle of the flowers. The entire order turned out really cute, and all the colors went well together!

50th anniversary cake

Image

This past week, I was commissioned to bake a 50th anniversary cake, and cookies, for a couple celebrating the golden years! They requested a strawberry cake, and white frosting. I baked two sheet cakes, and carved a “5” and “0” out of them, this was my first carved cake, and it turned out pretty well! I covered them both in satin ice fondant, and used butter-cream to make flowers, which this was also my first attempt to make flowers, I was very pleased with how those turned out as well. For the cookies, I used a sugar cookie recipe, and decorated them in frosting, and edible heart glitter. 

This was my first commissioned cake order since we moved closer to the city. I am very thankful for the opportunity and I can only hope the couple was pleased whenever they saw it! 50 years of love is always such a beautiful thing to be able to celebrate, and I was so very lucky to be able to help them celebrate that.
