It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Here is a sample if the Christmas baking i am doing. These are just the cookies, but i am doing cupcakes and cakes as well.

Cookies are iced with rolled marshmallow icing which is a pretty alternative to royal icing and just as tasty.

Cupcakes will be iced with whipped butter cream in three colors: red white and green, and decorated with mistletoe and snowflakes etc.

Cakes that are popular right now are ones that look like wrapped gifts. These can be made in any sized square or rectangle and decorated with festive colors.

Please let me know if you have any special requests, and try to place your order well ahead of time so you can have it when you need it.

Novelty cake

I thought i would add a couple more pictures of the popcorn cake , here is one of my daughter trying to eat the popcorn off of it ( she knows what the good stuff is now!) and the other picture is the cake with the star cupcakes i made to go along with it.

Novelty Cake

Here is a cake I made for the church movie night. I thought it would be fun to have a cake that looked like a box of popcorn to go with their movie star theme. I also made star shaped cupcakes just in case more kids showed up.

Coming soon

I know i don't have many pictures posted but that is going to change soon. This weekend i am preparing a small wedding cake, as well as an anniversary cake, both with fondant. Next wednesday i am preparing a novelty cake for the church. In late november i am making a really unique cake which i cannot describe just in case the recipient is looking, but it is a very cool cake and i will post a picture as soon as it is finished.

So come back again in a week or so and be sure to let me know what you think!!

so far, so good, so messy!

well i tried the fondant sunday, was great but then i added a tiny bit of water as per the instructions and- boom, it went all tough on me..... so today i braved it again. This time i used the microwave to melt the marshmallows (that worked really well, and they didn't stick!) and then added the sugar, my hands got pretty sticky but the"dough" went well, and is resting now. it should be perfect tomorrow. once i find my camera cord i will take a picture and post it. and the taste, well it is actually edible, compared to wilton brand fondant. it is definitely encouraging.....

Jarrods cupcakes

Here are the cupcakes i made for Jarrod's school party. These cupcakes were 100% gluten and casein free. No one noticed the difference!!

Thomas cake!

Here is a cake i made for my nephew Jarrod, who is gluten and casein intolerant. Over 90% of this cake is gluten and casein free. Unfortunately i wasn't there to see his face when they revealed the cake (he could never eat a store bought cake because of his allergies) but i heard that he was ecstatic!
