Chocolate Heart box

My friend Justin has found the girl of his dreams and he often does cute things for her. He wanted to get her a romantic cake just for fun. I found this cake on one of my favorite baking websites and told him I would make it for him. The box is red velvet cake covered in red fondant. The "truffles" are actually red velvet cake balls covered in chocolate and decorated to look like a box of assorted chocolates. This is one of my favorite things I have made to date. Yay

Butterflies for Sexually Abused Children

A friend of a friend is part of a chairity that raises money to support children that have been sexually abused. They were having a bake sale and asked us to make butterfly cupcakes (their log is a butterfly). So we gladly did. These are made out of pretzels, licorice and m&ms. Very cute and for a cause.

Southern Chocolate Meringue Pie

Just what the title says, a pie made of chocolate custard and meringue.. Rich hearts this.

Girlscout Cookie mini Cheesecakes

Inspired by the oreo cheesecakes in a previous post, I used thin mints to create these cupcake sized cheesecakes. I also used do-si-dos to create the cheesecake bites seen in this picture. Rich said he like these way better than the oreo ones.

Fresh Strawberries

Strawberry season is upon us, so I took it upon myself to make martha stewarts fresh strawberry cupcakes with a strawberry swiss meringue buttercream.. These were pure divinity!

Fresh blueberry muffins

Apple-Pecan Sticky Buns

And a quiche to die for.. Crem Fraiche, guier and bacon quiche

sour cherry cheesecake

The bosses wife was having her mom and brother in town from Germany. Her brother was turning 50 and her mom was turning 75. She ordered a cheesecake with sour cherries mixed in. I think it turned out beutifully.

allergen free birthday

A friend of mine has a son who is alergic to nuts and dairy, so she has never been able to order him a birthday cake. I told her.. no problem I can make a cake without those things. His birthday was right before st. patricts day so he wanted a leprechaun cake. So this is what I came up with. And as an added suprise the cake inside was rainbowed. Little Alic loved it.

Super Bowl cupcakes

I made these cupcakes for the big game. They have grass piped on them and hand made chocolate goal posts. I also bought chocolate covered almonds and piped "laces" on them. They were a touchdown at both parties we attended.
