Are you ready for some Cake ?!


I spent the weekend baking cakes which were all needed for Sunday. 
Yes Super Bowl Sunday!
Two 1/2 sheet cakes in a football theme. 
I wanted to do the team helmets but due to restrictions I had to keep it simple.

Then I moved on to the next cake, this was for my sweet sister's birthday.

10" Round Chocolate Fudge Cake 







Next up spy cup cakes!

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.

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. 


Christmas treat for your table.

Lets see just what we can create with this group of goodies.








Wishing you Joy and Peace at Christmas and throughout the New Year.   A time to treasure your family and friends you hold dear. 

Leave me a note if you'd like a step by step how to, to build these snowmen and women.
