Baptism Cross Cookies

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

These custom sugar cookies were a small part of a celebration for a little baby boy’s baptisim. Forty vanilla cookies were covered in sky blue vanilla royal icing and accented with the little guy’s name,  a sanding sugar trim and a little royal icing daisy.

Thanks again for the cookies. They not only looked great, they tasted really great too! We got many compliments on them!”

Flavours to Taste

At a recent cake tasting, some wonderful clients took pictures of my cakes and buttercream fillings and I thought I would share.  This picture was taken by my first client, a very talented jewelery designer,  who posted all her pictures and comments about her cake tasting for her wedding cupcakes on her blog.  She is creating some gorgeous custom pearl bracelets for me that I can’t wait to show everyone!
