September started out slowly so I had a chance to play around with different cookie designs, bake a birthday cake and enjoy the beginning of football season. It was a nice end to summer. Then fall rolled in and so did the requests. Now, I normally try not to take on too much work, but it seems like everyone was having their party the last weekend of September and I decided to pull an all week bake session. It had been so long since I had one that I was a bit nervous. Luckily my old organization skills kicked in and I managed to get everything done on time and was really happy with the way it all turned out. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
My husband’s birthday is in September so I made a cake that I spotted a while back on Pinterest. I love the way it came out. I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe and filled it with espresso flavored diplomat cream. My 5 year old helped with the piggies. My kids said that the three with their bottoms up were them and I was the one laying down and my husband was the one hanging on the side. they had the biggest smiles on their faces when they saw it.
I had a few themed party dessert orders. I put the photos together to keep this post shorter. These are great examples of how you can build an awesome custom dessert table on a budget with mini desserts. A few of these clients were supplementing their tables with some homemade and store bought goodies as well.
A windmills and pinwheels party for a 6 year old little boy. We worked the windmills into the cupcake fondant toppers and put the pinwheels on the cake pops. We also made a jumbo cupcake just for the birthday boy.
