Cookies? What have I gotten myself into now?

Well, this is an all-new endeavor. A friend
 of mine asked if I decorated cookies. Truth be told,
not until now! But, always ready to try something new,
I accepted the challenge. She asked if I would make them for 
her friend who lives in Syracuse, NY. Her friend works for
Boxcar Press in customer relations, hence the boxcar and the 
girl at the computer!

Cake Pops Galore

This was the wedding of my mother-in-law's niece. 
The bride contacted me in January to see if I would make 
200 cake pops for her wedding and sent me the picture of the 
idea she had for a cake/cake pop stand. I was excited and nervous.
The most cake pops I had ever made at one time was around 50.
About a month ago, she asked me if I would be willing to make 300 instead!
I said I would. When it was all said and done, I made 322! 

On the wedding day, my brother-in-law and nephew helped me assemble the 
cake pop cake. When we were done assembling it, I walked around the 
front of the table and screamed! I couldn't hold it in! It looked just as we
had hoped it would and everything worked out so well. Praise God!

So much fun. Honestly, it brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart!


Fiftieth Anniversary Cake

Happy 50th Anniversary,
Dan and Raedean!

I made these cakes for a friend who's in-laws were celebrating
their 50th. It was a "from scratch" carrot cake with cream cheese
buttercream frosting. Yum!
