Hello , i made this video how to make peony flower out of fondant or gumpaste. TFL.
While Sydney was home this past weekend, for a VERY short time, we visited the Botanical gardens. As we walked around the flowers and greenery I saw a Flamboyant Mayflower and became mesmerized by it’s beauty! The Flamboyant Mayflower is known for its flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It seemed kismet to spot this…Read th...
I was asked by a friend if I could bake him a batch of gluten free sugar cookies. I have baked several pastries in the past that were gluten free (mostly bread and pastries), but I realized I had never tried to bake a batch of gluten free sugar cookies. I realized their must be a plethora of children who are unable to have gluten in their diet and would love to be able to receive decorated sugar cookies. I felt compelled to be able to devise a well decorated… For recipe, poins...
Sydney has an amazing red dress, every time she wears the dress heads turn to look. Sydney had planned to wear the dress to her dad’s and mine 22nd anniversary. Due to her class schedule and her volunteer work she was unable to join DF and I. She was feeling a little melancholy; this would be the first anniversary celebration she ever missed. I thought sending a cookie that reassembled her dress would bring a smile to her face. The dress is a linen…Read the whole...

For the poinsettia cookie above it literally took me 3.5 minutes to outline, cover, and decorate. Once the wet on wet method was finished I allowed the sugar cookie to dry for about 2 hours, piped a snails trail boarded, and allowed the… Watch the video »
I have been wanting to create a tutorial on the art of scroll piping with royal icing. It is easier to learn on a sugar cookie prior to an entire cake, piping an entire cake can take hours (even days depending on design and layers), while a cookie is not as time consuming. The candle light cookie was inspired by Eddie Spence’s book The Art of Royal Icing: A Unique Guide to Cake Decoration by a World-class Tutor (this would be a… For additional information »

I was asked to design Santa Claus cupcakes for a client’s office party, as luck would have it Sydney was home for Thanksgiving break. I must admit it was exhilarating to be baking along side Sydney. I love when we work as a team and I take full advantage of our family time! The Santa Claus cupcakes were inspired by the movie “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” Originally I had sketched out for elves and the big man himself (Santa Claus);… For recipe and materials list »
