Spring Cookie Bouquet

This bouquet screams out Spring in a very "sweet" way!  I thought it was a great idea to pair the cookies up with delicious red velvet and cream cheese buttercream icing pops covered in white chocolate that I tinted in lavender. I also added little flowers to the pops to make them look good with the rest of the cookies.  This is a great bouquet, for your sweetheart on Valetine's, Mother's Day or just because!  I also made some simple red velvet balls that are great for any dessert table or to give as a gift as well.

Tangled Cake and cookies

I made this cake for two precious little girls.  When the mom told me that the party was Tangled I got extremely happy because I knew exactly what I would do. This was a pretty large cake.  It is made out of marble loaf and rice cereal treats with vanilla bean frosting and covered with MMF. The middle support of the tower is a one inch dowel rod, 18 inches long that I covered with rice cereal treats, made by me (the store bought ones are a bit too soft for construction).  The rest is all cake.  I tried staying true to the colors of the invitations.  I know that next time I make this cake again, it will have even more details because I already have the experience.  This cake was so tall that it almost didn't fit in the car.  We had to pull out the peak of the tower, but that wasn't a problem because the customer only had to put it back again once at the venue.  I made cookies in the shape of crowns too. When the customer picked it up, she elated!  Yey!  I love happy customers!

Tinker Bell Cake and Cupcakes

This cake is completely edible. Tinkerbell is made out of gumpaste and I think she came out pretty good. The cake is a marble loaf with vanilla bean buttercream inside and covered with MMF.  Thank for looking!

Ladybug Cookies

These are vanilla butter cookies that I made for a client that wanted nice looking ladybug cookies for a shower.  She was happy and so was I.  They were placed in cellophane bags tied with a pretty red ribbon. Super cute!  I love ladybugs!  I think they are the only bugs don't freak me out! lol!
