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 »
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 »
Witches, bats, ghosts, and skulls seem to be the theme everywhere, especial on cookies, cakes, and cupcakes during the month of October (due to Halloween). Although they are scary and fun to recreate into a treat, I wanted to design a terrifying symbol I have not seen brought to life for cake nor cookie decorating. I knew I was on the right track when my husband shivered at the idea. He does have ophiophobia (a fear of snakes), like a few dozen other people. Oh did I forget to tell you a ...
After spending the day at the arboretum picking out the perfect pumpkins and looking at the golden sunflowers I decided to bake up a batch of sugar cookies and paint them with sunflowers and sunflower leaves.

Fondant fabric techniques have become brilliantly popular in the past few years and ruching is no exception. Ruching is a French term which means to gather, ruffle, or pleat; the term is a sewing technique in which fabric or ribbon is gathered in a repeating pattern to form ruffles, scallops, or petals. Ruching also happens to be an extremely fun technique to recreate with fondant. I have designed two separate ruching techniques… Mermaid Dress Blossom Dress ...
For quite sometime I have been waiting to create a bamboo framed sugar cookie with Spathoglottis orchids, better known as Asian Ground Orchids. I had promised Sydney I would wait for her to come home in order for us to design the sugar cookie frames together. She has a love affair with orchids and had seen Asian ground orchids in a photo with a friend in Sri Lanka. I had originally placed five orchids in a Mariposa… Read the whole story »
I have been watching General Hospital for 48 of the 50 years it has aired on ABC, my grandma and I would await for every new adventure each day at 2:00 pm CT. I skipped school on November 17th 1981 to watch Luke and Laura”s wedding, I actually missed a few more days leading up to the event. I cried in 1994 when Maxie Jones needed a heart transplant; her recipient being her cousin BJ and again in 1995 when Stone Cates died. I inadvertently turned Sydney, my daughter,...
