Chocolate Cake AKA the Rob

A few years ago when we moved from Nebraska to God’s Country my parents and their dear friends started an annual trip to Door County.  Last year due to unforeseen circumstances it didn’t happen that my parents were here, but their friends came and they brought their daughter and new grandson.  Their daughter just happened to be one of my dearest friends from elementary school.  Well this year the tradition continued and my parents and their friends are here with their daughter and grandson. 
It happened to be my dear friend Alison’s birthday on the 27th so we celebrated tonight with a “Rob”.  If you aren’t familiar with the “Rob” it is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and then chocolate shavings on top…only for those who truly love chocolate. 

Happy Birthday Alison! 
Thanks MaryBeth!

Rehearsal Dinner Samples

Here are some “sample” cookies I made for our neighbor who is hosting her son’s rehearsal dinner at her house. 
I tried different things making the hearts into tuxedos and dress tops, writing the date on their cookies, mini wedding cakes.  They have previously sampled my martini cookies and those were something else we considered, but what we ended up deciding on was motorcycles. 

I showed the bride and groom to be who just happened to be over eating dinner and they both agreed that motorcycle cookies it would be. 
So be on the lookout for some motorcycle cookies in my future. 


What the motorcycle cookie cutter looks like. 
Thanks to for having the perfect cookie cutter

Peace, Love and Birthday Cake

This cake and cupcakes are for an 11 year old who loves peace signs and tie dye. 
The cake and cupcakes are chocolate and the cupcakes are topped with butter cream frosting, I used 4 different colors placing them in the pastry bag a little at a time to come up with the mixed, tie dye look for the frosting.  The cake is topped with butter cream and then covered with homemade marshmallow fondant, and then detailing was done with Royal Icing. 

Happy Birthday Marley! 

Thanks Cassie!

Cowgirl Birthday Cake

This cake was a lot of fun to make; I was contacted by Tracy asking if I could make a cake similar to this one.

I looked at the cake and came up with my own twist of it. The cake is yellow cake with strawberries in-between which is then covered in butter cream and then topped with my homemade marshmallow fondant.
Happy Birthday Lindsay!

Thanks Tracy!

This star cookie is for you...

My middle son had his 4 year checkup today, and as I have stated before, I like to shower the staff at the clinic when we go in, they work hard, and they are always great to work with, so with yesterday being the 4th, I decided to shower them with star cookies.

Summer Birthday Fun

When I went to bed later than I like on Thursday after finishing up a few orders I said to my husband that it should be a quiet 4th of July weekend. I didn't have any more orders on the books. After I dropped my cookies off for Ms. Debbie and her co-workers at The Clipper's Mate, I received a phone call from Sue. She asked if I had any cookies that she could use for her daughter's birthday party. I didn't have any sitting at home, but decided I would have time to make these for her. So here they are, these cookies are for a girl who is celebrating her 14th birthday. The cookies are cupcakes, stars, flip flops and beach balls.
