Mini Cake Challenge – May

 Here is my mini cake for May. I decided to do a Mother’s Day cake for when my mother-in-law came to visit. Overall, I like the cake, but I don’t LOVE the cake. It turned out alright. A little boring. This cake was my inspiration, and I should have stuck with the green. The blue…

Oh, hi there.

The past week has gone by in a blur! We had a lot of fun with family in town last weekend and it’s taken me 4 days to get back into a normal routine! I DID have the house cleaned all up on Tuesday, but I decided to do some sewing and well… Let’s just…

Baby Shower Fun

Our good friends Iris and Steve are expecting a little baby girl, pretty much any day now. (We were preggo-buddies!) Her sister Veronica threw her an awesome baby shower last weekend, and I got to have fun helping her pull it all together. We made a spiffy diaper cake and diaper bassinet, cute little wash…

Best Cookies IN THE WORLD.

Today has been an extremely long, and extremely good day! But that is a story for another day, because I’m too tired to write! BUT I couldn’t go to sleep without sharing these absolutely beautiful cookies!! So, these Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies have been popping up all over the web lately. I thought they…

Best Valentine’s Ever

Ok, I know Valentine’s Day is past and gone. But I’m not really into celebrating Valentine’s Day. I’m more into celebrating the Valentine’s Day clearance sales!

Mini Cake Challenge – February

Here is my ‘much-cuter-than-last-month’s-attempt‘ Valentine’s Day cake! I definitely need to work on my leaves, but I’m so happy with the end…

Mini Cake Challenge – January

Number 12 on my “26 Before 27″ list is to decorate a mini cake each month. And since Monday was my birthday, I decided this month to make myself a tiny birthday cake. It came out terrible.. I almost don’t want to post pictures of it!! The icing I used was WAY too thin. I’ve…

Peanut Butter Cups!

Today I was inspired by this post over at The Dainty Squid and this post on The Hungry Mouse, and I decided to make homemade peanut butter cups! Definitely a fun (and messy) way to spend an hour or so! Next time we are going to experiment with fillings. The smores ones look AMAZING. A…

Wedding Crazyness

My past week has been filled with all sorts of wedding preparations. I altered a wedding dress (turned it into a corset back), made a pretty veil, took in a bride’s maid dress, made a flower girl dress for my little cutie, sewed matching shoes and made necklaces for the two flower girls, AND baked…
