Merry Christmas!!

Just want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! I thought I would share this photo of our family tree that my 13 year old daughter took. She loves taking pictures and has become the resident family photographer.

Christmas Cupcakes

I have been wanting to decorate cupcakes with mini sugar cookies for the longest time and have finally had the chance to. I love how they turned out. Yellow and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.

Distinctive Cork Champagne Tasting Event

I was asked to sell my truffles at a Champagne tasting event at the Distinctive Cork in Naperville. My friend Patty was there selling her delicious toffee as well. We had a great time (especially trying the different champagnes) and were able to sell our treats as Holiday gifts. If you are in Naperville, check out the Distinctive Cork it's a really nice wine bar and restaurant. My truffles are on the dessert menu; which is really exciting for me!

Twilight Themed 40th Birthday

I was asked to create cupcakes for a 40th birthday party with a Twilight theme. The birthday girl is a huge fan (don't you love the photo shopped pictures of her and Edward). Since I have never read the books or seen the movie I scoured the Internet for inspiration. I found another bakery in a different state that did this on the cupcakes, I thought it was so cute I decided I would use it. The cupcakes are yellow and chocolate with a combination of frosting (chocolate fudge, coffee buttercream and vanilla buttercream). I've been told that the birthday girl was really pleased with her cupcakes ;)

Baby Shower Cookies

These were created for a client who was throwing a baby shower for her daughter. She wanted a variety of cookies and wanted each cookie to have pink, purple and white. We used the baby's monogram in a few of the cookies.
