Bridal Shower – Pink and Gold

IMG_9489

I recently had the pleasure of working on a dessert table for a bridal shower. I made cookies, cake pops, pretzels dipped in chocolate, chocolate cupcakes filled with toasted marshmallows and a malt chocolate frosting, red velvet cupcakes and mini desserts like toasted panna cottas with a rich, dark chocolate sauce and chocolate pots de creme. I had a lot of fun making these cookies and desserts. The bride’s mother had set up and decorated the place so beautifully. Sharing some pictures from the event! A big thank you to Icings by Ang who allowed me to use her tiara design. I absolutely love her work. My spin on it was that I topped the crown with a decorative . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

Bake Party-Cookies And Desserts

Bake Party This last weekend my little angel celebrated her birthday! Just cannot believe how fast she’s growing up. She was keen on having a cupcake decorating/bake party. There were 17 of her friends that attended the party and it was held at home. I began planning by first selecting an invitation. My daughter loved this one and best of all, it was free! Then I started planning the games and activities they would do and this is what we came up with (lot of inspiration from Pinterest). I set up stations where the girls decorated their aprons with fabric markers, chef hats decorated with cupcake liners and stickers ( for some who wanted to write their names too). The . . .

Valentine Cookies I would like to wish all my readers a very Happy Valentine’s Day. I have been so excited to make Valentine cookies, I bought tons of stickers, stamps, decorative wrapping paper as sources of inspiration but ended up making these simple marbled hearts. I simply fell in love with the vibrant contrast of colors. They are super simple to make, hence not at all time consuming and yet have this sweet “Wow” factor. For a detailed tutorial visit sweetambs. Every year on Valentine’s day, the PTA at my daughter’s school organizes coffee and desserts for the teachers. It’s a whole day event. This year, we are also doing a raffle. There are lots of fun prizes and one . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

May this New Year bring lot of good health, wealth, success and happiness to all! 2013 was the year of baking and decorating cookies for me.

Wishing all my readers a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year! This was my first Christmas cookie order and I enjoyed making these.

Elf Cookies

I volunteered to make these for my daughter’s Girl Scout Brownie troop party. My little one insisted on elf cookies. I had pinned a few elf cookie designs by Lisa The bearfoot baker and yankeegirlyummies but I did not have an elf cutter. I emailed Lisa asking her for advice with designs since I didn’t have an elf cutter and who as usual so kind and generous to say that she could mail me hers. So sweet of her but I did not want to inconvenience her. So I googled away to find some options and stumbled upon Klickitat Street site and absolutely fell in love with Sarah’s work. She had used an ice cream cutter to make little . . . CLICK TO READ MORE

I have always been fascinated with the art of cookie decorating and these days been obsessed with it. It’s about 3 years since I started baking and never in my wildest of dreams would I have imagined that I would bake sugar cookies and decorate them. I am inspired by many blogs and follow them religiously such as Sweetopia, Sweetapolita, Sweetsugarbelle, The Bearfoot Baker, One tough cookie, Sweetambs and the list goes on. I volunteered to bake these apple cookies for a teacher “back to school party”. I needed 65 cookies but ended up making 80 in case a few didn’t turn out as expected. I did lots of reading and research on all my favorite cookie blogs. They all . . . CLICK TO READ MORE
