Logo Cookies

Finally set up my new birthday present -- an edible ink printer. I made these corporate logo cookies for a friend who sells Arbonne skin care and makeup. These will be packaged in clear cello bags and used as thank you gifts at her workshops. I love the flowery logo design, and so I played it up with a summery hot pink border and some pink sanding sugar.

I think they came out super cute, though I'm glad this batch was a test run. I need to use more icing underneath because the frosting sheet with the image looks a bit bumpy. Anyway, I'm so excited to try some new designs. My next project will be for a bridal shower.

They taste great too!

Party Disposables

Love love love these new items from Garnish, one of my favorite party/entertaining packaging sites. They've got great things like paper straws, wooden utensils, berry baskets and other clever things to add detail to your food and party set up. Can't wait to use their new goodies, especially the wooden cones and ripple cups.

Edible Ink Printer

Can't wait until my birthday present arrives next week. It's an edible icing printer from Icing Images. I have so many exciting ideas for cookies and cakes that I think will help take my business to the next level -- plus it's loads of fun to play with. I can create wedding monograms, corporate logos, characters, photos, graphics, text and more. The possibilities are endless. The photos above are just a few examples of what you can do with one of these babies.

Go Diego Go! Cake

Just delivered this three-tiered cake for a second birthday -- my first time attempting a stacked cake. The little boy's name was Diego, so they did a Go Diego Go! theme. My husband poured me a nice glass of wine -- it's my birthday too today -- and now I'm relaxing. I learned so much from this job. There were a few disasters, thankfully rectified, and now I can apply all the newly gained knowledge to my next project. More details to come, but here's a few pics of the cake -- photos aren't the greatest but you get the idea.

My husband made the cute!
