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.

Heirloom Confections - Sponge Candy

With Michigan getting hit with it's first major storm of the year, I thought it was a great time for some heirloom confections.  Yes, Sponge candy also known as Honeycomb candy, whichever name your family recipe was handed down by.  This is a sweet, crunchy, honeycomb-texture treat withhints of delicate toffee and molasses flavor. You can leave it plan or dress it up with chocolate which is what  my niece and I did for a Valentines day treat.  

You can find many recipes online or in your heirloom recipe books.  They only vary by dark or light corn syrup and white or dark brown sugar.  If you use the dark corn syrup or sugar you get a deeper toffee/molasses flavor. Whatever you choose this confection only has four ingredients and is super easy.

Bake Sale

Another fall bake sale of sugar cookies and Frankenstein pretzel fingers for St. John's fall festival. With my sweet niece's help we made sugar cookies with her custom fall colors and pretzel rods dipped in Wilton candy melts and milk chocolate in the form a Frankenstein finger.   Then we bagged and labeled with Avery custom labels and delivered them.  It was a wonderful day for our festival, great activities , vendors, music and people.
