Happy New Year!!!

Yeah, I know you might be tired of hearing that by now. I want to wish you a very prosperous.

No words (for now), just pictures. Pretty ones, I hope.  Enjoy!

Well, like I tend to say… better late than never.

Those were my Christmas sugar cookies of 2014. I own a large number (very large number) of Christmas cookie cutters and it was very difficult to decide what to do this year. I certainly miss working on  my cookie houses and Santa Claus designs, but I was so happy to finally incorporate baby Jesus into one design. After all, Christmas would be without him.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas (or Holiday) and I truly wish you a very happy and healthy New Year.

Although I don’t believe in making New Year’s resolutions (long story that I don’t have time to write about), I really hope I can change the fact that I ‘neglect’ my blog. I hope this year I can show you more of my work, with more details and more… more of everything.

Let the fun for this New Year start…. Let the New Year’s baking of more Sweet Treats begin.

Christmas Cookies

Posted on December 6th, 2011 in Cookies

I am way behind on posting and updating the blog. I have many Fall cookies to show you, but I haven’t gotten the chance to edit the pictures to write the post.

Christmas is right around the corner and it’s my favorite theme for decorating cookies. Christmas cookies can be so fun and colorful and because there is a huge amount of cutters out there, the possibilities are endless.

Here are some cookies I made for my daughter’s Godfather’s mom’s nieces and nephews. Did you follow that? I even got confused writing it (I hope it is correct).

These bears look like they had too much pumpkin pie during Thanksgiving!

One of these houses is ours. Trust me, we don’t have any more beautiful flowers in front of our window.

It’s weird to be posting Christmas cookies before my Fall cookies, but I guess I still have time since winter is not here yet (although it feels like it already here in Iowa).

Have a Sweet Treat today!

 

Holiday Extravaganza at St. Francis of Assisi

Posted on November 16th, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies, Other Sweet Treats

We had the opportunity of participating at the Holiday Extravaganza Show this past Sunday at St. Francis of Assisi church, our church. We baked and baked and when we finished baking, we decorated like mad women.

Some of the treats we created were  Sugar Cookies (Christmas), Cake, Cake Balls and Assorted Cookies. Here’s what we offered at the Show, but first here’s a picture of the table we set out.

Our Cake/Treats Table

Winter gloves & boots

Snowmen

Green & blue snowflakes

Raindeer & Misletoes

Decorated Christmas Trees

Christmas Presents

Christmas People

Christmas Houses

Cake Balls

Cookie Sandwiches

Cookie Tray – Small cookies

Cookie Tray – Large cookies

Wehad three Styrofoam cakes for people to see our work and we also prepared a small Tres Leches cake for people to try out. Dulce de Leche buttercream was offered with each slice of cake.

What do you think? It was a lot of work, especially because the day before we had to be at another show at Prairie Life Fitness. It wasn’t exhausting being there, but preparing all the treats was a lot of work. We enjoy what we do and I especially love to hear people that they enjoy the look and taste of our cookies and treats.

I hope you enjoyed looking and reading this post.
