An 8 year old girl's birthday...

This was for an 8 year old's birthday - they requested that I do whatever I like for the cake and just utilize her favorite colors (blue and green).   This was my first attempt at a pillow cake and tiara.  The square shaped pillow was a pretty run of the mill attempt...however, trying to make the round cake look like a pillow and hold a shape was far more challenging than anticipated!!  Nonetheless, the 8 year old was very happy with the result and even ate the crown :)

A 7 year old girl's Birthday!

I made this cake for a friend's beautiful daughter.  I tried a new recipe for "White Chocolate Fondant".  It was harder to work with and roll out but it tastes much better.  Oh well, practice makes perfect (I hope)

Happy Halloween!!

Here are some cookies I made for the neighbors.  I enjoyed the "gross factor", but also thought they were a pretty good Halloween treat...some people thought they were too creepy to eat.
