Cupcake toppers

These cupcake toppers where for my friend's daughter.  She just loves Aurthur.  She found the plates and napkins at a flea market for next to nothing and I made the toppers to go along with them.  I made the cupcakes these went on, but I did not get pictures of them before she came and got them.  I made two dozen total.  I did not think I would ever get done with them, but I had so much fun making them. :o)

Brownie Toppers

I was playing around with these the other day....brownie toppers.  They are about 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and made from fondant.

Chocolate cookies!

I am in love with this new chocolate cookie recipe.  I messed around with several recipes I had and came up with this version that works for me.  I can make it plain chocolate, or with mini chocolate chips in it.  Both are delicious!  They can be decorated just like my shortbread sugar cookies.  They are so good with a cup of coffee too!

Happy 11th Birthday Indra!

This cake was for my dear friend's daughter's 11th birthday.  She asked if it could have the color lavendar, flowers, be kind of nature-y, and be chocolate.  I changed my mind 4 times on what to do and end the end this is what came to me.  Of course, those who know me, know that I am not happy with the buttercream, since I prefer to work with fondant, but they are vegetarians.  I was out of my regular fondant, which is vegan, and did not have time to order more in time, so I could not use homemade as it contains gelatin.

The flowers are made from gumpaste, as well as the name plaque.  The butterflies are edible wafer paper. Oh, and this cake was tiny, only a 6"and 4".
Thanks for looking!

Logo Cookies

These were for Knoxville Stone Interiors.  They are offering in home granite parties where you can ask questions, see samples, and talk to previous granite counter top clients, all while eating cookies! 

These are my delicious buttery shortbread/sugar cookies topped with fondant and royal icing accents.  I also put a little bit of buttercream under my fondant, so my cookies are extra yummy.  I can bag these cookies individually with matching satin ribbon, or I can put them on a platter and wrap with cello and a matching ribbon.

Vintage Shabby Chic Baby Shower

Okie dokie here is a view of something I will be offering, hopefully this week or next.  I am now making cupcake, brownie, petit four, and thumbprint cookie toppers, in a addition to decorated cookies.  I offer customized sugar work to match your theme or event.  I will be offering the toppers by the dozen and the cookies can be gotten by the dozen or individually as favors, or as party platters.  The toppers are around 2 1/2 " across for cupcakes and the toppers are entirely edible.  Thanks for looking, and I hope to have more information for you soon!

I'm Ready!

Okay, I am finally back!  I had been working feverishly for the past few days trying to get these little guys baked, decorated, photographed, and edited, but stuff kept getting in the way.  So without further ado and before I called away for something, here they are!  I chickened out on doing these in royal because I could not get my thoughts out on paper quick enough so think that whole process through.  But I like how these turned out.  I so hope the cookie decorating and eating world will let me in the door with these!  I think I have found my new love!!  I hope someone likes them as much as I liked making them. Thanks for looking!
