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!

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!

This past week I visited a good friend from college and met her 3 month old baby girl, Kinley and of course I couldn't show up empty handed. When I saw these cookies by Cookie Artisan, Maryann I knew I had to give them a try. I think they are perfect for a summer themed baby shower or gift.

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!

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! I made a chocolate bubble cake and since there were 60 guests, I made a second vanilla cake to coordinate with the invitation.

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 Made.com for the inspiration behind these cookies!

This week I had some fun "assignments" that helped put a smile on my face and bring a little sunshine to my kitchen. Checkout this pool party cake. The little bears are made from Teddy Grahams and the palm trees are bread sticks. I sure hope the birthday girl likes it!
