It was an honor to make the cake and desserts for my friend Cathy's soon-to-be baby boy! Cathy wanted the soft blue colors with accents of metallic gold and small touches of red throughout! I kept the cake bottom tier with clean lines and was inspired by the waves at sea for the top tier!
I really enjoyed creating this dessert table for Alexys on her first birthday! Little ballerina is the sweetest theme for any little girl. Below you can see the steps I took to create my first gumpaste ballet shoe topper. This was my favorite part!! I used bows, slippers, gold pearls and metallic details to accent all of the sweets!
Happy Birthday Alexys!
Robert is turning 65 years old- not only is it his birthday, but he is retiring this year! It was only appropriate for his family to throw him a party at Yankee Stadium. Here i incorporated his "retired number" into some NY Yankee themed cookies!
Nicole's bridal shower was a surprise of navy and lemon nautical bliss :-) These custom cookies have Nicole's wedding hashtag on them along with her shower date!
Can't believe that Jeffrey is already 5 years old!! The best way to measure him is through his cookie theme-- and you know he is growing up when he has these awesome Transformer symbols to celebrate his themed birthday party.
Happy 5th Birthday Jeffrey!
I had the honor of making Jenn and Ro cookies to give to their new clients for booking their wedding day photographers!

Gold and pink are definitely the colors of this bridal shower season! Cara is all about glitz, glitter and shine- so i made her ring and dress cookies sparkle for her! Edible glitter makes all the difference! I also designed her favor tags with the faux glitter border of course!
The request was all pink!! Pink on pink on pink for this mommy-to-be! This is a classic baby shower cookie collection full of pink stenciling, airbrush and hearts.
Simple and sweet! Here are the cute little while and anchor cookies that were favors for a little boys baby shower. I love the mix of navy and teal for something masculine yet fun!
Anna works for Brokers 3 Realtors and uses me to give her clients something sweet with the purchase of their new homes! This is one of the collections that was made for Anna to give out on the clients big day!
I have to say that Dr. Seuss is one of the few themes that never gets old for cookies! They are always as cute as the first time I made them! Here is another classic Dr. Seuss themed collection that was given as favors at a teacher appreciation luncheon!
Inspired by a customers image that they sent!! These "little prince" cookies are the perfect royal favor for any little boys' 1st birthday celebration! The gold details make the images pop and the royal blue color is the perfect compliment!
Happy Birthday Maison!
Pretty crazy about my Lily Pulitzer inspired cake and cookies for Kelly's bridal shower! Her family threw her a unique and awesome shower with quirky patterns, pop colors and sophisticated swirls. The buttercream cake was simply white with lots of texture and a perfect gold pineapple cake topper! For the cookies, i created all different kinds of shift dresses inspired by Lily patterns that I love!
My last post of 2016 and probably one of my favorite posts!!! I am obsessed with giving milk and cookies to Santa.. even at 27 years old. So I had some extra dough and decided to make a few tins of cookies and milk for parents to give their little ones on Christmas Eve. No better way to have an extra little bit of fun with your kids. Best of all- the "Santa's" get to taste them too!
Let the holiday festivities begin! Cara ordered these chocolate fudge cake pops all wrapped up to hand out to her coworkers as they leave for holiday vacation! I created these custom cake pop tags with the name of her company and a little holiday greeting on each. Nothing better than going home with a little something sweet!!
Anna reached out to me to make her new homeowners a little set of cookies as a "thank you" gift to being such great clients of hers! This is a perfect way to welcome a client or friend into their new home-- with freshly baked personalized cookies!
Thanks Anna and congratulations Vetrano family!
Frank's favorite theme is STAR WARS and I made him some awesome little Star Wars cookies to celebrate with his friends. Here are his favorite characters turned into "smaller" versions of themselves!
Happy 5th Birthday Frank!
Football player Tim Wright has opened an amazing barber shop on Rutgers campus for everyone to enjoy. This two tier cake and collection of cookie favors was made to celebrate the great success and opening of his new shop!
Congratulations to THE WRIGHT CUT!
It is Kathy's birthday and her family is throwing her a Halloween birthday party full of beautiful sugar skull details. Here are my purple and black sugar skull cookies with custom favor tags made to match!
Happy Birthday Kathy!
What is better than two sisters having a superhero girl party together! Ages 3 and 5- and they are all about supergirl! I customized the cookies to match their hair color and added their ages to the superhero outfits. So crazy and fun!
How can the smallest thing be so time consuming!!! This was my first attempt at any Shopkin cookie-- Rainbow Bite is Charlotte's favorite little toy and I had to replicate them for her birthday party! Instead of piping all of these colors, I decided to hand paint them to be able to get the watercolor look and the shades as close as possible to the cookie.
Happy Birthday Charlotte!
I am engaged! and of course, I had to include some special cookies into my "Ask" boxes. I am having my sister as my Maid of Honor, and my cousin Julie as my only Bridesmaid. Simple and sweet! I created a box of "treasures" for both of them including things throughout our lives that were great memories. At the bottom of the box, I made four cookies for each of them. Two cookies with our edible images of them from when we were young and the present time. And a beautifully simple dress and engagement ring to compliment them. I absolutely love anything personalized, and can't wait to share my big day with them!!!
