Well Thanksgiving week is here and I am looking forward to get some time off from work and spend some quality time with my family. My husband is going to be working on Thanksgiving day, the girls and I are planning on watching holiday movies, make some Christmas crafting and
squeezing baking in between.
This holiday day is a little bittersweet, I love the celebration and meaning behind of it, it just gets a little lonely not having a big family around to have a dinner feast and celebrate together.
Any way, I finally baked and decorated some Thanksgiving cookies to give out to some of my friends and my kid's school teachers. I used an old color palette that never gets old.
I love how the turkey's feathers turned out using a small petal tip, the effect on the green Fall leaves wasn't even made with flooding consistency icing, just regular piping icing and a tooth pick.
Ivory leaves with dots for a little something different.
And I couldn't pass the opportunity to make Sugarbelle's simple turkeys using a snow man cookie cutter
Here is a plate of cookies I made for the daycare
ohh this pumpkin pie cookies are so cute, Sugarbelle's ideas are just the best!!
I made this cake for a good client of mine, I have been doing all her kid's cakes for many years now. For this birthday party, she wanted to do something different and have her little boy's party at a farm instead of the traditional gym party. Hey!! I totally agree, I am tired myself of having my oldest daughter's birthday parties at the same gym every year.
The design and colors of the pumpkin patch theme cake was based on the party invitation. I am always very intimidated by chevron designs, but I was able to use my new chevron cutter which is a complete time and stress saver.
I used a cookie cutter to cut the #4 and small Fall leaves.
The pumpkins I handmade them using fondant and a tooth pick as tool.
I have to say that the hardest part of making this Sweet 16 Masquerade theme cake was the delivery. The cake itself was tall and heavy. I handmade the masks and I was totally terrified of the masks breaking in transit that I decided to assemble the cake at the venue.
Here is the cake at delivery time.
I added the masquerade mask attaching them with candy melts and now the cake it really comes to life.
The masquerade masks were made with gumpaste because they really needed stability, I made them using a template I found online. Masquerade masks and cake details were painted with gold luster dust.
and just bragging here.... with my beautiful assistant at delivery time.
Oh my goodness, I can't believe is November already !
Time sure flies by. Around here we had a wonderful Halloween, as you can imagine, we are still recovering form the almost sugar coma we had last Friday.
Any way, today I have this little cake to show you, 6 inch round chocolate cake filled with oreos and cream. The birthday girl loves Sophia de First and this cake is inspired by Sophia's dress. I added the sugar tiara for a more Princess feeling.
