Spooky Halloween Cookie Bouquet

Do you guys remember the cookie bouquets I created in the past? This Daisy Cookie Bouquet is still one of my favorite sweet creations ever. I wanted to create a cookie flower bouquet that could stand like real flowers. To be honest I have no idea why this was so important to me but it totally was. I just knew if I could just figure it out it would change the entire look of a traditional (and kinda ... [ read more... ]

Fondant Flower Cookies For Mother’s Day!

Every once in awhile, there comes a time where I have to throw in a mushy serious post. I mean it can't always be those awesome puns and sprinkles you just love from me can it? Sometimes we have to get right down into life, as I see it. Yes, believe it or not my thoughts do expand past cookies and cakes (generally straight to the pile of dishes I've made). Mother's Day is definatly one of those ... [ read more... ]

Cookie Tulip Fields

Sometimes a story is told better backwards, so let's try that today and work our way from the end. I had just completed these tulip cookies and I wanted to gift some to our German neighbors. We haven't really gotten to know them yet, as they only know a little English and our German is well barely there. Cookies, well, they are understood in every language. And you don't exactly give cookies ... [ read more... ]

Brown Sugar Maple Sunflower Cookies

This summer has been one for the books, and not in the way I had been hoping. I had some really fun plans this summer, especially with the launch of my new book Cupcakery, but things took a turn before they even got started. In May we found out we would be expecting our fourth child and I pretty much spent ever day after battling the worst of morning all day sickness. I spent far too many days ... [ read more... ]

And I really do mean floury, because flowery presents die…and floury presents well, they stay with you forever - in the hips. But totally worth it alright…anyway, you're going to need a little more then ... [ read more... ]

Popping Up Daisies Cake

Last week I shared with you guys a fun new Daisy Cookie Bouquet, I had a blast making them. After all edible flowers are the best kind of flowers! But while I was photographing them I thought, man why didn't I stick these in a cake...or even made dirt pudding in the pot? I just new I had to try out one of them with some extra flowers and well, we were long over due for a little cake around here. ... [ read more... ]

Daisy Cookie Bouquet

It's true, April showers bring May flowers! Unless you live in the desert and you haven't seen rain but once in six months, then you bake some! Plus as I've 100 times...the only green thumb I have comes from food coloring. Fact. So even if we weren't currently living in the desert, growing them isn't quiet an option! So I'm not exactly a gardener but I do love to bake up fruits, veggies, and ... [ read more... ]

Sunflower Cupcakes

It's really hard to believe "spring" is here. And not just because our friends and family all over the north are still seeing snow, our new location in the south has us questioning if there ever was a winter and feeling like it's summer already! I'm not so sure spring really exists here?? Although I don't miss the insane amounts of snow from the frozen tundra (aka upstate New York) I do miss that ... [ read more... ]
