Fondant Christmas Cookies

I was making sugar cookies with the kids and I decided to play with some fondant. I didn't make very many cookies this way since there was sheer frosting and sprinkle madness happening at the same time in the kitchen. I used the same cookie cutter to cut the fondant a but smaller since the cookie spreads a little while it is baking.
I then used other color fondant to decorate the cookies.
This was fun (for me) usually I make pour cookies and that also takes a long time, but they are so yummy!

These are just a few pictures to show what my little bakers in the making made.....

Pumpkin Cupcakes for School

SHHHHH....don't tell but I was asked to make cupcakes for a classroom party!! Now a days that is a NO NO. Which in a way I understand, there are certainly some people I wouldn't want making food for my kiddo's. BUT...whew I guess I am not that person for others! We made chocolate cupcakes with butter cream frosting and marshmallow fondant pumpkins.
When they arrived in the class I guess some people still thought they were from the store. I take that as a compliment with regards to they trust them to eat them! However, mine look much better than any regular grocery store will make them! Not to mention fresh & Delicious!!!

I am so far behind on here...tomorrow is Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Halloween Baby Shower

I was asked by my sister-in-law ( if I would make cupcakes for her baby shower which was a Girly Halloween theme. Of course I will do it....duh!!! Even though we had just drive from Washington and moved into a rental home the weekend before in AZ. I was a little nervous about how my fondant would act here in the heat. It looks like it did fine! I made a little baby blanket with her cute skull design (with a bow) blanket and made tiny feet sticking out the bottom.

On the other ones I made girly skulls and black stars.
The cupcakes are my YUMMY Seattle's minus the coffee filling. The pink frosting was SO FUN!

The momma to be was VERY happy with how they turned out! What to make next? I really need a kitchen with double ovens!
