This oh so pretty and feminine cake is covered in pastel buttercream flowers which are all the rage on Pinterest.   Pink champagne cake is filled with strawberries macerated in champagne which elevates this tasty treat to another level.

Purple, Purple and More Purple…



“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.”
Alice Walker, The Color Purple


I made these cake pops for a cardiology nurse friend of mine.  These heart-shaped goodies are covered in purple tinted chocolate coating and filled with rainbow cake.  Instructions on how to make rainbow cake pops can be found here

As an added touch I placed some Sweetapolita’s sprinkles in the cake pop bag and finished with a curling ribbon.  I am absolutely addicted to these sprinkles and plan to use them in future posts.

Joy to the World

JOY cookies

I have eyed the Alphabet cookie cutters for some time and finally gave them as a Christmas present to myself.

I purchased Christmas cards that inspired this design and thought it would make a pretty cookie combo.  Placed in a cello bag and sealed with a gold sticker it makes a pretty hostess gift that is sweet enough to en”JOY”.
