The big 4-1 :)

Need some Birthday or Anniversary cookies but don't really have a theme? I've got this cute little set of numbers that, when stuck together, make the cutest little cookies :)

These happen to be a little surprise for Joel's 41st birthday~ Make it a great year, Joel!!

What do all the best treats have?

A little salt, a little sweet, kinda gooey and kinda crunchy :) It's nothing earth-shattering, but if you've never had sweet party mix, you're missing out! It's great for parties, car rides, camping trips, bake sales... well, any occasion really!


All it took to make this cake appropriate for online viewing was a little black bar :) After all, what's better for a birthday/anniversary cake than a tasty pair of... cake domes?
Funny cake- with the right crowd! Enough said :)

Feelin' Patriotic

What better way to celebrate the 4th than with a tasty flag cake?! I had a little helper for this particular cake- she stirred for me and really got a kick out of pouring the batter in the pan :)

The flag cake turned out pretty cool and was a big hit at the 4th of July party!

The other FUN patriotic cake I got to make this year was for my 2nd cousin Brenda's surprise 60th birthday party! They told me they wanted a 3-tier red, white and blue cake and left it wide open for me to do whatever I wanted with the rest! I had a blast making marshmallow fondant (which tastes pretty darn good!) and playing with it to decorate. The cake was a huge hit, and the party was lots of fun. Happy 60th Brenda!!!
