2010 Doehrmann Family Reunion

Posted on July 1st, 2010 in Cakes, Cookies, Cupcakes

For 8 years, I have been part of a celebration that takes part every year. Whether it is during the dreaded cold Winter or the hot Summers, the Doehrmann Family gets together to celebrate Christmas – or just to visit with each other. This year it was up our family, Jan (Matt’s mom), Ryan & Ross (Matt’s brothers), Amy (Ryan’s wife), and us (Matt and I) to host the get together.

I was in charge of the cakes and I was more than happy to do it. We had a few birthdays to celebrate. Jo Anne Doehrmann was having a birthday and all of her kids wanted to make it special for her. So, I decided to make cupcakes and display them in a three tier cake stand. Here’s Jo Anne (wonderful person and mother to he children) and her appetizer and dessert display.

My daughter Lillie decided that the cupcakes’ flavors should be Strawberry and Chocolate with Chocolate Ganache filling.

 Because Jo Anne was a music teacher it was only appropriate to have a musical touchto the desserts. I made fondant circles and added a musical note drawn with royal icing. Here is the cupcakes arranged in the stand. All around the cake stand I placed sugar cookies made featuring musical note, clef notes and guitars.

Here are the pictures of the musical cookies, decorated with royal icing.

And the guitars…


We also had the opportunity to celebrate Jan’s Birthday (Matt’s mom) and my lovely Lillie s birthday also (on July 4th). For both of them I created this cake. The flavor is Spice Cake topped with buttercream icing.

Lillie wanted crown candles and princess colors (pink mostly). For Jan, I wrapped the cake with a shoe decorated ribbon. I also made dresses and shoe cookies for  her.

And here’s my Lillie (Pooh) with her cake and having lots of fun at the party.

The Doehrmann Reunion was again and as always a lot of fun and it was nice to visit with all family members coming from various cities. Jan Doehrmann did a wonderful job preparing all the food and appetizers that everyone enjoyed. The kids rode horses, played with the dogs and enjoyed an awsome water slide.

Until next year.
