Sweet Turkeys

Ok, so these might be one of my favorite creations to date. These mini turkeys start with a simple vanilla base, topped with frosting, then covered with caramel and decorated with Pringle stick (drumsticks) and Chex mix (stuffing). What a great treat for the kids on Thanksgiving!


Good friends of ours recently got married, but we weren't able to make it to their wedding in California, but we were definitely thinking of them and wishing them much happiness. To celebrate, I sent them these little gems. Congratulations, Tim & Danielle!

Gobble Gobble

When I set out to do these Turkey Cake Pops, I thought they would be fairly easy... guess again. I am definitely learning a lot about using chocolate in my desserts and am starting to figure out what the right temperature is for the perfect pop!

Wedding Bells

What a fun treat to make... I just love this bride and groom couple. I hope the real bride & groom to be will enjoy them at their wedding shower.

Betty Crocker

Normally, I am all about Halloween and dressing up for a costume party is something I would usually be super excited for. But for some reason, this year, I just didn't have the energy to think of an elaborate costume. Some friends of mine suggested being Martha Stewart, but I didn't want to put the energy into being "blond", so I went with Betty Crocker. And best of all, I made some gingerbread mummies to bring along to the party.

Our Little Strawberry

Although Amelia was too little to enjoy the treats of Halloween, she had to have some of her own to share. I made these strawberry cake pops (made from Bakerella's new book). They were really challenging, but with some persistence, I couldn't be more happy with the way they turned out. And the red velvet cake I made them with, was the biggest hit.

Happy Halloween

I just love Halloween. I especially enjoyed all the tasty treats that I got to make and enjoy with my family and friends.
