Can you go wrong with chocolate, coffee and vanilla?

Chocolate fudge cake with vanilla, coffee, and chocolate whipped buttercream.  Just typing this is making me think about making this cake again.

A Beary Happy Birthday To You

This was a party where everything was designed around the invitation I had created months in advance.

It's hard to see, wish I had taken pictures before hand, but the cookies behind have the floating bear image.  It was a fun way to personalize the party.

This is my first attempt at a pull-apart cake.  It was great for easy serving.

These cookies matched the vintage tractor design I did on the invite.

This has been a popular trend for a number of years.  How perfect are these for a baby girl's shower?

Construction Zone

This party was inspired by the fact that most of our major roads and city streets have been under some sort of construction for the last few years.  As usual, what we adults find annoying, children find fascinating.

French Macarons

I was first introduced to these last summer, and quickly became intrigued with them, which eventually lead to an obsession with many trials and too many errors on my road to macaron success.

I'm Back...

After a hiatus that resulted in deleting my whole blog...I decided to start it again, only I am pretty computer illiterate and can only retrieve my template, so I am starting from scratch.  Bare with me as I decide exactly where I'm going with all of this.
