Coffee and Biscuits

It's my friend Tammy's birthday. Can you tell what she loves? 

And it isn't just Starbucks - she loves her biscuits too (aka cookies). Don't take a bag of them from her house when you're babysitting, or she'll call you later that night looking for them!!

The cake was chocolate kahlua (of course), with coffee swiss meringue buttercream

Birthday Baking

If you tell me it's your birthday, chances are I'm going to make something for you!

That's what happened this week when my friend told me that the playdate we planned was on her daughter's birthday!

 They were gone fast - apple spice cupcakes, with caramel swiss meringue buttercream

Good Sports

My husband's co-workers are such good sports about ordering treats from me. For a while there, I suspect they were doing it because they like me (and not because of any real talent on my part). But these days, I think they may actually like the treats too!

I made these for the Natrona County Conservation Board, for some sort of meeting (or maybe it was a training). I know when I dropped them off, everyone was listening intently to a speaker and I was trying to be inconspicuous!

Baby Booties

How cute are baby booties? Seriously? I just love them - now if only I could manage to buy the booty cutters that I have on my Amazon wish list! These ones turned out cute, but not as symmetrical as I would've liked!



I'm also getting pretty good at this royal icing thing...

Pumpkin Cupcakes

Today, I made pumpkin spice cupcakes, with pumpkin cream cheese frosting. No reason. Other than the fact that I love pumpkin cupcakes, and really, really wanted to eat about a dozen by myself!

(My hubby and kids don't share my pumpkin love)
