Spring Bazaar Bake Sale

Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies iced in royal icing.   I'm in need of a new round cookie cutter, they came out more egg sharped then round.   Oh, but they still tasted just as good.   Yes, I had to sample those broken cookies.   In honor of Mother's day tomorrow my niece and I made pink rosettes.   

We were in a bit of a rush to get them done, so there were some imperfect ones.   Once they were dry we bagged them up and labeled them for the bake sale.

We used Wilton Clear Mini Plate kit bags.  

Time was moving fast and I did semi-home made brownies.   Double chocolate brownie mix and home-made semi-sweet chocolate icing.  We use Wilton ready made flowers to finish.  

We added windows to the brownie packaging to show off the goods.   Then headed out the door to St. John's Spring Bazaar. 
Wishing everyone a wonderful Mother's day!

Bunny Tail Treats

Since the first day of March I've had my nose pressed to the window looking for signs of spring. Alas, it's Michigan; we've had three days of snow.  Finally, my patience paid off.  I'm happy to report that our spring flowers are poking out of the ground with a few blooming in the sunshine now.  Our neighborhood wildlife is on the move and visiting our yard.  Among them are a few bunny families, which inspired me for these Bunny Tail Treats for Easter.

Fall Festival sugar cookies

St. John's Fall Festival is today and for the bake sale fundraiser I baked and decorated sugar cookies.  I found the cookie recipe on Cooks Country page. 




When all was baked and decorated my niece and I placed the cookies in fall cup cake papers and clear bags then labeled them for the bake sale. 


We boxed them up and headed out to the Festival.  Stop by the Festival they will be open until ten this evening.   Don't forget to stop by the bake sale.  

Summer Harvest Party

**House Party has a new name it is now RippleStreet.com

It’s been a busy summer so far, but I was able to put in a kitchen garden this year.  



It was just in time to win a Ball Made To Share canning House Party which was sponsored by Newell Brands.


Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.


On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.




As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…

Spring Bazaar Arts and Craft

St. John's held their annual Spring Bazaar on April 8th. 

Bake sale items were to help raise money for a new roof.  I made these cupcakes and a few mini cake's with my new Russian cake tips for the bake sale.






I packaged up, the single cupcakes in ice cream cups and taped a clear cup upside down as a cover.  This made for a great to go cup.  




I made up multi packs of three and four cupcakes in spring colored and bunny boxes.

For the mini cakes I removed the cup cake holder insert and placed the 5" cakes inside.  They fit perfectly. 

After checking in, I found the single-serve cups sold faster than the multi-packs.  A good thought for next bake sale. Be sure to stop by next year to check out the wonderful artists and vendors.
