Rustic Baby Wedding Cake

Fun idea for an anniversary- a mini replica of your wedding cake! So cute and tiny, this cake stood 4 inches tall and was topped with yummy chocolate ganache drizzled over the tops of each tier.

Halloween Party Treats

Every year we host our annual Halloween fest with 60-70 of our friends and family. It is so much fun to decorate and bake for the event! We love the fall and love celebrating Halloween in our family! This year to help spread out the work I baked an item each day for about 2 weeks, and of course the day before and of for the more perishables! Here are some pics from the event and some ideas for easy and ghoulish treats for your family!
bite into a brain and get a gush of raspberry filling before getting to the yummy cake center
 we call it gorp- an excuse to throw everything in a pot, top with curry powder and bake. The smell is diiiiivine!
 easiest and most addictive snack ever- pretzels with marshmallow ends, dipped in chocolate, mmmm
 chocolate covered oreos; vanilla and regular
 festive almond sugar cookies
 an always popular treat- peanut butter and chocolate monster eyeballs
what Halloween party is complete without a creepy jello brain?

 Black velvet cupcakes topped with sweet almond and Tahitian vanilla buttercream
Lime cupcakes topped with white chocolate buttercream frosting
Fun creative drink for any party! Equal parts Apple Juice, Cranberry Juice and cinnamon sticks. Throw in some plastic eyeballs and half pound of dry ice!
 Happy Halloween from our family to yours!

Frozen Themed Buttercream Cake

I have wanted to do a Frozen themed cake, so I was thrilled when asked. Since it was somewhat short notice, I did it in buttercream due to the fact that I didn't have time to mix up a batch of fondant. But I was thrilled with the simple yet sweet look it turned out with! Perfect for a little girl!

Little Man in a Tie

  We enjoyed celebrating our little guys special blessing day. We were surrounded by our family and close friends which made the day even more special! Many came from far away, so we made sure to feed everyone to thank them for joining us. We set up a slider hamburger bar and a nice dessert table, as well as many of the other delights people offered to bring! Here are some fun photos of Christians special day.

Turning 1!

What sweet little birthday girl! I was so happy to be asked to do a little smash cake for Brielle's 1st birthday, and these pics are just adorable! I love how the beige cake stands out against her adorable pink outfit!
