Dora says Feliz Cumpleaños!

At least I think that's how you say happy birthday in Spanish (if not please correct me!)
Anyway, little Jordan is turning 2 today, so her lovely grandma requested a Dora the Explorer cake to celebrate.
I hope Dora stays 'cool' for the little  kids for a while...I've actually watched a few minutes of her show, and she's pretty darn sweet, and cheery! Lots of fun characters, and great bright colors, plus she says cute things in Spanish like 'vamanos, que bonita, te quiero, and of course Hola!'

This Dora is made of vanilla bean cake with white chocolate buttercream filling.

Feliz cumpleaños Jordan!

Hellllloooo Kitty

I so love all things HK, she is just so darn cute! She is timeless for me, and so a comic sort of way, I mean, who doesn't love HK?!
Even while visiting Venice, there was a store entirely dedicated to HK...they also had amazing air conditioning, so my husband was quite happy to peruse the shelves in there with me...okay I perused, he stood underneath the a/c vent (it was an easy 30 degrees C)!

Anyway, here is an HK cake for a great client of mine Emelin.
Emelin wanted a special cake for her young cousin Mia.

This Hello Kitty is made of chocolate marble cake and cream cheese icing...and of course topped with an oversized, glittery peony...I'm really into giant floral corsages right why shouldn't H.K get one too?

Happy Birthday Mia!

Gobble Gobble!!

Sorry its been so long since my last post....but i've been crazy busy (but I'm not complaining!)
This past Thanksgiving was a great chance to a.) have 3 days off, and b.) hang out with family over a great meal!
We were lucky enough to have turkey dinner twice over the weekend, once with my in-laws, and of course with my parents & siblings- totally spoiled!

Here are a few treats that I baked up, as I never show up for dinner empty handed!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread

Turkey Inspired Cake Pops & Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops

Roasted Garlic, Homemade Cranberry Salsa, Corn Salsa, and Cream Cheese with Crackers

More Cake Pops! (Marble cake w/cream cheese icing & dark chocolate glaze)

Ooey, gooey dark chocolate torte, with white wine blueberry coulis...okay, so I have a 'thing' for chocolate, don't you?

Hope everyone had a great 'lots-to-be-thankful-for' Thanksgiving!!
