A red velvet cream cheese cake with fondant pearls that I made recently.
We celebrated Mister Mister’s mom’s birthday at our house a few weekends ago. We invited her over for a BBQ and we sat out on the patio soaking up some mid afternoon sunshine and feeling the lovely breeze.
Lovey said “her gift smells exactly like Nana.” ♥I baked her a red velvet cream cheese cake.The boys were extra sweet and washed her car as she and I sat on the front porch and watched them hard at work.We love her very much and are thankful for all the love and support she gives to us.
Making a wish. I hope it comes true!
I hope Lovey and I made him feel special and let him know how very loved he is. ♥
Monday was Mister Mister’s birthday, the big 3-0!
“The ending of an era and the turning of a page…”
He woke up and came downstairs to find a Happy Birthday banner with all of his cards, that Lovey and I put up for him.We had dinner at the birthday boy’s restaurant of choice, a sea food place over looking the Columbia River.Sipping on a shark bite and soaking up the warmth of the sun on the patio.The rest of the day was spent together at home. I made him an Oreo ice cream cake and Lovey and I sang him Happy Birthday before he blew out the candles and made a wish.I hope Lovey and I made him feel as truly special as he is to us. ♥

Happy first day of Spring!
I hope you were able to enjoy some real Spring weather wherever you were at today. As for where we are, the weather seemed a little confused to say the least, with a high of 52. There was pouring rain, hail and sunshine interspersed among one another for the duration of the day. You have to love the Pacific Northwest, at least that is what I keep telling myself. 😉
All be it not inspired by the Spring weather, or rather lack there of, today I was inspired to bake. The outcome, a lemon cake with vanilla buttercream frosting and fondant flowers.
I’m a little obsessed with the color yellow as of lately, especially when paired with this beautiful, vibrant turquoise color.
It’s a keeper and I will be using it often from now on.
I really like the visual interest it adds to the cake.
With Lovey’s help, we made flowers out of
edible play dough fondant. Nothing too fancy, just basic flowers from some left over fondant I made for a recent customer order. I tinted the fondant a vivid turquoise, rolled it out, then Lovey helped me cut out the flowers. We added a yellow frosting center to each one then placed them on the cake.The light lemon cake flavor and fondant flowers ended up bringing an element of Spring to our day after all!
Last month I was asked to cater the desserts for a family friend’s baby shower. She was having her first child, a little girl and the shower theme was ducky with a pink twist! Cake and cookies both were cherry vanilla flavored as requested by the mommy to be.I made six dozen handcrafted chocolate duckies with pink bows on their heads to top the cupcakes.Splish-splash rubber duckies in the bubble bath!An 8 inch double round cake for the family to cut.
Congratulations to the family on the arrival of your sweet, little chick! 😉
