Since I am so behind on here...I will start at Christmas and blog backwards! Fondant Christmas Birthday Cupcakes

I have been up to my ears in baking and loving every second of it! Which is why I chose to say no to most of the Christmas baking orders I was asked to do. I KNOW what you are thinking, why would I turn down orders. Well, I have a family, daycare, and i LOVE to sleep at night {all you bakers know what I am talking about}. I did sneak in an order for my sweet niece who just turned 2 and her smart mommy & daddy embraced the dreaded birthday in December issue and went with it! EVERYTHING was so cute and she loved it!
She chose to do 12 red velvet & 12 chocolate. We also made a special cupcake for her friend who shared her birthday with the birthday girl!
I was bummed that I didn't know about the cookie decorating contest the paper year it is ON!! Sugar cookies up next, so check back. Thanks for taking a look at my yummy creations!

Summer Fun

Now that school has started, I turned the calendar to September, and Labor Day fun has already been had seems like summer is over. Well, unless you live here in the heat of AZ! But I can pretend cant I?
These cupcakes & cookies were for a summer party for a sweet little girl that I have the pleasure of watching grow.
She had a great party & was even enjoying a watermelon cookie the next week when I saw her! I cannot wait to make some fall yummy treats!

Please forgive me being the MIA blogger...

This is where I have been and what I have been up to!
So busy...but so much fun! I just actually had to purchase a 2nd fridge to hold all the goodies I have been making for others! LOVE IT!!! There is so much for me to learn about the cookie decorating, but I really enjoy learning it and trying what I see. I am extremely thankful to have found this outlet for my crafty-side that can pay for it's self at times.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party!

I made some mini chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting and sprinkled broken peppermint candy on the top of them and WOW was that good! It gave the entire thing a candy cane taste.
My tray of ugly sweater cookies was a huge hit! They were so fun and it was interesting which cookie people chose.

Here is a peak at the baked goodies I had that night! It was a great great in fact we forgot to take pictures of everyones "lovely" attire. Next year there WILL be pictures!

Ugly Sweater Party Cookies

I made my sugar cookies, but instead for pouring the frosting I used fondant. My fondant is homemade marshmallow fondant which is AMAZING! I have had people refuse to try something I have made if it has fondant on it, because they have only tried the GROSS kind that some bakers use on wedding cakes and such. That tastes nothing like mine!!! I promise! These cookies are SOOO good and so cute as well!
It was fun to get to be creative and create "ugly" cookies! I may be partial, but I don't see anything ugly about them! ;)

I made this Panda sweater for my oldest daughters friend who was tricked by her grandma into wearing an ugly sweater with a panda on it to church for the teens, when in fact it was NOT an ugly sweater event! OH GRANDMA!!!

Christmas Poured Sugar Cookies

*Note to self: Do Not Take Photo's Using Light Above Stove!!!* These cookies do look pretty, but with the yellow tray and yellow light, not so much! But they sure did taste yummy!
I made these for a white elephant gift exchange party I went to in December. It was a blast, let's just say the ladies got crazy playing Catch Phrase!!!
I was playing with the pour method of decorating then dragging a tooth pick across the colors to chage the swirl look. I LIKE IT!!!

The platter lookd pretty cute and I brought it home after that night with 2 cookies on hubby was excited to get some. Poor guy sees most of the baking I do go out the door.

Along with this batch of Christmas cookies I made were some Ugly Sweater Party Cookies for a get-together we hosted one evening for some of our neighbor friends from church.....
