Happy Birthday Cookies

Well, tomorrow is my birthday!

For the longest, I have NOT been looking forward to this birthday. 
But for some reason, all of a sudden, I'm okay with my age. 
I'm now looking forward to a new decade of growth and opportunity. 
So to celebrate, I made Chocolate Chip, Sugar and Chocolate
cookies in my favorite color!  So here's to a fantastic decade
hopfeully full of love, happiness and amazing opportunities!

My Girlie Birthday Cake

I have been wanting to do a 'girlie' cake for a while now. 
And thanks to my girlfriend's boyfriend, I was finally able to do so.

This is a double vanilla cake with my
signature dark chocolate frosting.
It's covered with fondant and topped with a fondant & gumpaste bow
and designed with fondant accents.
And although it's hard to tell in the photo,
the fondant and accents are purple.

I was so glad I could do this cake!
Happy Birthday Courtney!!!!!

African Violet Cake

This African Violet Cake was a special request for a woman
who is celebrating her 95th birthday.

It is a double vanilla cake with buttercream frosting,
covered in fondant, Oreo cookies for dirt and
over 80 colorful African Violets
(I may actually have gotten to 95, but I lost count. :-))

I think that this was my most extreme cake so far
as I had to taper the bottom
of the cake so that it looked like a potted plant
BUT I couldn't taper it too much so that when they
continue to cut the cake, it would still stand up once
half of it was gone.
It's amazing how much architectural work goes into a cake!
Who knew!?!?

Easter Basket Cookies

These cookies were a surprise for a husband from his wife. 
They are a really sweet couple!

I really enjoyed designing these cookies.  I added sanding sugar
to some of them.
I like to create designs that I haven't done before
so that clients don't get the same items.  :-)

Mets Cupcakes

These Mets Cupcakes are a dark chocolate cupcake covered with
vanilla buttercream and topped with an edible Mets logo. 
These were a special request for a big Mets fan.

The awesome part is that not only did the birthday guy like them,
he made them his Facebook profile photo!

How sweet!  :-)

Baby Boy Shower Cookies

These cookies were created for a baby shower
for a baby boy that's on the way.

The little red wagons were hand carved since I couldn't find a cutter
locally and ordering online was going to take longer than I'd like.
