Cake Balls

I completed my first order of cake balls last weekend for a baby shower.  In preparation, I concocted all sorts of combinations (orange and dark chocolate, blueberry, blueberry chocolate), which was so very fun! (My co-workers enjoyed eating the cast-offs!)

The final decision was for two different flavors: chocolate-chocolate and almond-chocolate.  The cake balls were yummy and just the right size for a little dose of sweetness.  I'm already dreaming up all the different possibilities for these addicting treats in the future!  Thanks to a wonderful repeat customer, Katie, for the business again!

A for Addison!

These monogrammed A cookies were made in Addison's favorite color for her 4th birthday!  Her mommy, Kristin, was so sweet to give me free reign in baking something cute for Addie to take to school.  Glad you liked them!

Evan turned three and had a John Deere-themed birthday party, complete with tractor cookies.  I don't know what the little boys at the party liked doing more, playing with their tractors or eating them!

Blue and Green Birthday

My former roommate Erin asked me to make cookies that coordinated with the invitations for her little guy's first birthday celebration (image via Shutterfly).

So I went with matching cupcakes, as well as fun 1s.  I think the birthday boy enjoyed them!

Sock Monkey

This fun birthday party order was one of my very first requests!  Charming Brady turned one at the end of September, and his party planner extraordinaire mommy, Katie, had all the details planned out way ahead of time.  The theme of their celebration was sock monkey, so corresponding cookies were made in the shape of monkey faces, bananas, and number 1s for the big one year old!

Dots and Chocolate

Oh, how much fun I had with this order!  My friend Katie was throwing a baby shower and wanted lots of sweet treats to coordinate with the mommy-to-be's nursery bedding, Coco Dot by Pottery Barn Kids.

To mirror the crib sheet, I created chocolate sugar cookies and decorated them with hot pink, light pink, lime green, and teal dots.  Vanilla cupcakes were made and swirled with fluffy frosting in the same colors.  Chocolate chip cookies were the final addition - perfect for the new mommy who craved them throughout her pregnancy!

It was fun to change up this order from that of the traditional decorated sugar cookie.  Thanks for your business, Katie! 


Isn't Katie creative?  She made this stand to display the goodies at the shower.

With This Ring

These fun engagement rings were requested by my friend Lisa for her sister's bachelorette party.  Love the sparkles on the diamonds!


I get a lot of requests to do cookies for children's birthday parties.  Inevitably a big part of the celebration is recognizing how old the child is, so number cookies make a great addition to the party spread!

If the Shoe Fits...

...EAT IT!

I made these sparkly glass slippers for a Cinderella-themed birthday party this summer.  How fun!
