Ice Cream Cone Cookies

I'm so tired of cold weather...can we all pretend it's summer already??? I love the feel of the sun on your skin, especially while you're licking an ice cream cone!

I actually decorated these cookies back in December (I live for the summer) but I've been waiting to post them until the weather was at least a little bit warm.

Ladybug 1st Birthday Cake

Here's a sweet little cake we made for Maddie's first birthday.

The cake was iced in light green buttercream and was decorated with buttercream grass and white gum paste daisies. And the ladybug topper was made of Rice Krispies Treats and covered with fondant.

Debbie gave me artistic freedom on the ladybug so instead of going juvenile with the face, I went a little more adult. I tried to make her look like a sweet little lady - one Maddie might see in one of her storybooks.

Happy Birthday, Maddie!

Ketchup Bottle Groom's Cake

Here's a groom's cake that's close to my heart. Growing up, my best friend Amy put ketchup on everything - even potato chips! She was a definitely ketchup lover!

So I totally understood when a bride & groom came in to order a cake that looked like an old-fashioned ketchup bottle. The groom is apparently a ketchup fanatic too!

The cake was hand-carved and covered with red fondant. And, when we delivered it, the groom oohed and awed over it! So here's to you Amy and Mr. Ketchup Groom!
