Merry Christmas!!

Wow!! It's been a crazy couple of weeks around here...but all the cookies are baked and orders filled for Christmas. Thanks to all my wonderful customers. I hope everyone enjoyed their cookies :)
I have decided not to take any new orders until after January 1st. But I have lots of new ideas brewing so check back soon!
I plan to take the next couple of weeks off and have fun with my kids! I hope you will enjoy time with your family as well. The real reason for the season is the birth of Jesus...may we all strive to remember this during this busy and sometimes stressful time!
May you all have a blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! ~ Donna

Crossroads Retreat

A couple of weeks ago I went to Crossroads Retreat Center
in Lindale, TX for a scrapbook retreat. About 12 of us girls
went and scrapbooked all weekend! It was a wonderful
weekend of fun with the girls!! The food they serve us
at Crossroads is fabulous....but you gotta have snacks, right?
So...I brought along these "heels and hats" cookies for us to
munch on between meals and LATE at night :)

Cookie Bouquet

Treats fit for a Princess....

My daughter requested a "castle cake" for her 6th birthday party. I spent weeks planning the creation of this cake. The main challenge was the towers and turrets...and also how to get them to stand without destroying the cake! Once I had a plan, the cake was relatively simple to do. I enjoyed doing it and my daughter loved it. Thanks to my "dear hubby" for helping with the "assembly" of the towers!

For goodie bags I made these crown cookies and added the princess and prince frog suckers to the bag for an extra treat!

Just getting started....

Ok, I went back a few months and found pics of cakes I've done since the first of the year. A couple were simple "character pans",and the Thomas cake was created using several different ideas I came across online...

Cake and cupcakes done for my nephew's "Jungle" party.

Thomas the Train cake for my boys' birthday party.

K-5 Graduation cake for my daughter.

Why I started baking cakes.....

I have always enjoyed baking and decorating cakes and cookies. I started out just doing "Christmas Cookies" for my family and co-workers. After my children were born, I began to bake the cakes for their birthday parties. My boys had a combined birthday party this year...they are ages 1 and 2....and they love choo choos, especially Thomas. So I baked a 3-D train cake with boxcars and a caboose. They loved it, and I really enjoyed doing it! After having several people ask me to bake cakes for them...I realized that I should start working from home...baking cakes and cookies! I feel that God has given me this opportunity to be at home with my children and at the same time earn an income doing something I enjoy. I treasure my role as "mommy" and enjoy the blessing that they are to me each and every day. My desire is to provide custom cakes and cookies at reasonable prices. I love to be creative and welcome any new ideas.
