This week I was putting together a larger order for another friend whose father-in-law is celebrating his 60th birthday in party fashion and what party is complete without sweets! I made boat-themed sugar cookies and snickerdoodles. Finally this same friend also wanted another smaller order to send to her grandma for her birthday. So, like I said, I have been busy! Here are all of the pics...
These bingo boards were the favors, and yes they are edible. The older we get, the
more likely we will be sharing in a bingo hall evening together!
Chocolate hazelnut cake pops! Sarah has never had one and her one request
was cake pops, lets just say, these did not make it past our beach picnic!
The cake of course! Vanilla bean cake with cinnamon-pecan buttercream filling
and fondant decor. The restaurant we ate at was so amazing they actually
brought it out for dessert with candles so it was a surprise for Sarah. The best part...
the fondant actually tasted good, I made it from scratch, I think that is the key!
The following pics look better in real life than film life as it was pretty late when I was
taking pics. Artificial light just does not do them justice like natural light does!
Cookies for a 60th birthday party: anchors, sailboats, and happy birthday cookies.
Finally, the final order for a birthday gift. 1 dozen cookies: balloons
and happy birthday scalloped cookies. I tied on bakers
twine to make the balloons look even more real.
Happy Baking, Happier Eating!
