Valentine’s Cupcakes

Posted by on Feb 16, 2012 in Cupcakes, Holiday, My Cakes

Happy (little bit late) Valentine’s Day!  These were some cupcakes that I made up for my 2nd grader to take to class for her Valentine’s party.  The hearts are fondant that I imprinted with a rubber stamp.

Little Bear Cake Pops

Posted by on Feb 16, 2011 in Holiday, My Cakes

Anyone with kids knows that there are many class parties.  I don’t mind signing up to bring things – and of course you know what I pick:  Sweet Treat! 😉

We were signed up for a sweet treat for Emily’s valentine’s party this week.  I was poking around the net a few weeks ago and read Bakerella’s post with her Valentine’s Day Bears. So…cute… !!!  I showed them to Emily when she got home and she was all over that idea.

I gathered the necessary items and last weekend she helped me create these adorable bears.  I won’t lie – they took time – but we had so much fun doing them together and she learned all kinds of techniques and skills.  Plus the bragging rights that she helped create them. 🙂  She helped with each step along the way.  She’s almost 9 so I didn’t think she’d necessarily hang in there for the whole process but she did.

And we were both pleased with the results!  Thank you Bakerella for your inspiration.  Check her out – you’ll be inspired as well!

Chocolate Love

Posted by on Feb 18, 2010 in Birthday, Holiday, My Cakes

This is February’s  cake for my husband’s work meeting.   Putting together V-day and some chocolate – what a pairing!  The cake itself is covered in a chocolate ganache and then a heart is made on top with some chocolate truffles.  Yum!

Valentine Cookies

Posted by on Feb 11, 2010 in Cookies, Holiday, My Cakes

Yesterday I worked on these cookies for my 2 daughters to take to class for their valentine’s day parties.  My oldest daughter (almost 8 yrs old) has grown very particular about her cake and cookie designs 🙂  I find it both cute and humorous.  She saw the bridal shower cookies I made last week and loved the designs.  This past weekend I asked her what design/color she wanted for their v-day cookies.   Her reply “I want the back to be light pink and I want a red heart in the middle and make it with the curl on the one side like that cookie.  But I don’t want the crooked heart mom, I want a regular one [see previous post – I used a whimsical heart].  And do some of those little hearts up at the top too.  That’s not too hard is it?” 🙂  She makes me smile – her list of requests yet she wants to be sure its not going to take me a million years.

Well much to my delight it didn’t – I baked and completely iced these during the day on Wed while she was at school….all 55 of them!  They went quite fast really.  Both she and her sister loved them which made my day.  Hopefully their friends love them too tomorrow – but then again, what’s not to love about cookies!
