taking a break

Here are some of my latest creations:

However, I recently started a full-time job as a Social Worker again and that leaves little time for baking and decorating 😦

So I will no longer be accepting orders for custom confections

Our friends just bought a new house, so what better way to say, “Happy House!” than with sugar cookies?!

This happy little neighborhood is made of soft vanilla sugar cookies with vanilla glaze.  Welcome to the hood!

a Sweet Birthday Cake

Posted in Cakes at 7:18 pm by 4apieceacake

This was the first cake I had done in a while, and it turned out just as sweet as I pictured in in my head.

Four layers of chocolate cake filled and frosted with rich Chocolate Fudge Frosting.

For the decorations, the softest pink vanilla frosting,

and sent with the sweetest wishes for a happy year.

I’m the Hostess Around Here :)

I’m sure you’re familiar with another kind of Hostess Cupcake…well I decided to try and make my own.

So here they are: spongy rich chocolate cake, filled with vanilla creme, and topped with swirls of rich chocolate fudge frosting.

Yum!  And these made the perfect hostess gift for a party with friends.

Hostess Gift! Get it?

I crack myself up sometimes 🙂

My favorite color is pink and pink is also the birthstone for my birthmonth.

So of course, I had to have pink cupcakes.

These are Vanilla cakes filled with light, sweet vanilla cream,

and topped with rich Strawberry Buttercream.

I like frosted sugar cookies even better…So here is MY version of Candy Corn.

And just like the original version at my mom’s house,

In Appreciation of our Pastors

Posted in Sugar Cookies at 9:35 pm by 4apieceacake

October is Pastor Appreciation Month,

So I made three different shapes of cookies, a church, home, and heart.

And I matched the font and colors with our “Joy of Living Campaign”

We have a large church staff and many pastors who dedicate their lives to sharing Christ’s love…

We really do appreciate them and I hope they know it.

Bridal Shower Cookies

Posted in Sugar Cookies at 10:51 pm by 4apieceacake

Guess who was excited about trying new designs?


The bride is having a sophisticated shower. My only directions were that her colors are maroon and tan. So, I got to experiment with gold sanding sugar, more intricate designs, simple geometric shapes, and my first foray into gel color. I was inspired by some vintage Cameo ring I saw on a lady at church, so I went with shades of creams, whites, and brown, using hints of maroon.

As you can tell with the amount of pictures I took, I was pretty happy with how they turned out. Let’s hope the bride is too 🙂
