Congratulations Carolina & Rafael!
Carolina and Rafael are having a second baby girl- her name will be Valentina! For Carolina's baby shower, I made a group of sweets to work around her (pink of course) theme. Cookies, cupcakes, chocolate covered pretzels, and truffle pops! Cookies are always my favorite to work on- they turn out so cute!
Strawberry flavored rosettes and chocolate transfers top the cupcakes
WE LOVE YOU TERRY!
Today we are celebrating the memory of our great friend Terry Paul. Our friends have put together an annual football game where all of Terry's friends and family can come together and talk, play and have a great day- in Terry's name. The time is flying by, but it always feels like yesterday that we were fighting over who has the better smile and who has the mom with the better lasagna. I didn't have my mom make lasagna for you today, but I baked some treats with you in mind :-)
I spoke to Terry's aunt a few days ago---she said it all; stay healthy, laugh and enjoy every single moment. Anything can happen.
It's the holiday to have fun with...
I usually do not experiment with making fondant cakes, but I thought that this halloween would be the perfect excuse to give it a try! I have to say, I had so much fun "winging it" and making the cake-- it came out to be pretty cute ;-) -- 4 layers of an 8" chocolate fudge cake with buttercream icing and fondant decoration. The cute purple spider is even edible if you just haddd to take a bite! Working with fondant can always be a little tricky, especially when it comes to making a smooth, even cake. I can't wait to work on the next one!!
Pink pearls, pink ribbon, pink raspberries and LOVE
I was asked to make a small dessert table for a baby shower-- one of my favorite events to celebrate!
The theme of the party was cherry blossoms, so naturally, everything was PINK- baby pink that is.
It is always so much fun to make small bite sized desserts that coordinate in mood and color, so I had a great time using fun decorations and details for these sweets-
The desserts chosen are shown below:
Three different designs of cupcakes--
1. Buttercream frosted rosettes with pink pearl centers
2. Raspberry topped pink swirled
3. Chocolate glazed with decorative words (much like a Hostess cupcake design)
My shining moment was when ALL of the rosette cupcakes were perfectly decorated, and ALL of them decided to face plant right into the floor. Thank GOD for boyfriends- my angel Andrew calmly picked up the mess and got rid of it so I wouldn't dwell on the loss. Thanks Bee.
Beautifully sweet- for a soon to be mommy!
