Spring Dance


Spring is around the corner and I'm counting the days.
Last weekend I saw my first two Robins and look what I found in the yard the other day.




So keeping with the theme of spring, here are some Spring Fairy Princess Ball Dress Cup Cakes.
Found the idea of them on line.



Here's how to make your Fairy Princess Ball Dress Cup Cakes with ribbons of buttercream ruffles.
This is a short cut version.
Start with your basic cup cakes, matching your cup papers with the color of your ball dress.
Bake and cool according to the package.
Set aside.
Take store bought sugar cookie dough, add a few drops of matching food color and kneed into dough until you reach your desired color.
You may need to add more flour to make it workable.



Next, roll out and cut out the top of your dress with a Onesie cookie cutter.
It worked best for us to have a thin cookie.
Bake according to the package; but, before they cool off , take your Onesie cutter and again cut the baked cookie while still warm.
Careful they are HOT.
Doing this keeps the shape uniform and precise because they spread during baking.
Let cool.

Now you can whip up your favorite buttercream or use a store bought version.

 I find the store buttercream to be a little to stiff.

Color the buttercream to match your cookie and cup cake paper.

Using a rose tip, ice your cup cake in ribbons.

Once they are done take a cookie and stick one in the center of each cup cake.
You want a hard cookie to do this.


We accented with a fondant flower at the waist of each dress.



Wishing you a fresh bright spring!

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.

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…
