Summertime Smores

This past week I had the pleasure of getting together with some friends for an afternoon of swimming and lunch. I had been wanting to make some smores inspired snack, so I thought that this would be a perfect addition to our summertime afternoon.

My smores cupcake was inspired by Glorious Treats. Checkout her site for many more tasty smores concoctions!

Happy Birthday Addison!

So, I got a little behind on my posting, but this was a cake that I enjoyed doing a for an adorable 3 year old girl. I was really excited to do this cake because I went to college with her mom and after 9 years, it was great to reconnect with cake!

Choo Choo

So one of my daughter's favorite new words is choo choo. Unfortunately, she's very excited about trains, but also gets pretty nervous around things that move on there own. Luckily this cake doesn't do that.

Strawberry Shortcake Cookies

Any little girl born in the 70s and 80s is sure to remember Strawberry Shortcake. I can still recall the sweet smell of that adorable little doll. Now that I have my own little girl, I look forward to sharing in the nostalgia of my own childhood favorites. I think these cookies help capture that fun!

Bubble Theme Birthday Party

This past weekend, I had the honor of making not one, but 2 birthday cakes for a very special birthday girl. Good friends, Sarah and Ed, celebrated their daughter's first birthday with a super cute theme... bubbles!

Happy Father's Day

I'd like to wish all the dads out there a Happy Father's Day. I am especially proud of my hubby, Mike who is an amazing daddy to our daughter, Amelia. If it weren't for him, I wouldn't be able to make all my tasty treats.

Today I sent the tool cookies with my hubby to share with all the other dads at work.

The fish cookies were made for my dad.

I would like to the thank A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe, Sweet Sugarbelle and Wisconsin for the inspiration behind these cookies!
