Iced Sugar Cookies

Here are some more cookies I have been playing around with! By the way, I found a website that I absolutely LOVE! It's called Eleni's New York... just go to and see for yourself :)

And just look how cute they are in cellophane bags tied up with ribbon!

Beer, Anyone?

I made a cake to look like a mug of Miller Lite for a "repeat" customer... (hey I am proud of that, I am just starting out you know!)

Miller Lite was written on dried royal icing with food coloring markers.

A Mountain of a Cake...

My boyfriend, Chris, had a very specific cake in mind. It was almost a challenge I think... He requested a mountain cake with Pistol Pete (for the Oklahoma State Cowboys) skiing down the side.

Well I gave it to him! Not too bad I dont think?

The cake was made complete with rolled fondant trees, a sugar cookie Pistol Pete and powdered sugar sifted as the snow!

Here Comes Baby Cohen!

My sister's best friend, Kim, is about to have a baby boy! I was honored to help cater her shower. I made a two-tier cake, iced sugar cookies and 75 cake bites!

The sugar cookies were really fun to make... the possibilities of shapes & colors are just endless! I will be doing more of those in the future for sure.

Full of Color!

I made this cake for a friend of a friend! The word is spreading that I do cakes and such... yay! :)

The cake is butter recipe with tinted buttercream icing and the purple stripes are thinly cut rolled fondant. The letters were done with tinted white chocolate. Not as smooth as I'd hoped for, but better next time!

Baby's First Birthday!

I got to make Alexander's first birthday cake! I've been a nanny for the past year for a truly wonderful family and he is the youngest of their four children. I made him a 4 layer chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling and buttercream icing. The lettering and handprint I made with melted milk chocolate and the sides are simply Hershey's chocolate bars broken.

He even got a cake of his own to devour!

Cake, Cake Bites & Cupcake Bites!

I came up with this two-tier cake design by looking at several wedding cakes. A smaller version of a wedding cake of course! It was butter recipe cake with chocolate ganache filling and buttercream icing tinted pink. Piping in chocolate buttercream. Sweet and simple!

I did coordinating cake bites and cupcake bites. These are simply cake rolled into balls and dipped in chocolate. Milk chocolate and white chocolate tinted pink! Everyone just loves these.

The cupcake bites I learned from Bakerella! She has the cutest ideas and I always want to recreate them :)
