Bird Cake

This cake was made for a little girl's First birthday. McKenzie had a great party with lots of friends and family. I had the pleasure of making her very first Birthday cake. It was chocolate cake with Oreo cookie filling and vanilla cake with pudding filling.
I have to say the vanilla was my fave. The combination of the cake with the vanilla pudding was delish and very moist.

Here is the Birthday girl enjoying her smash cake. Happy Birthday McKenzie!!

Mardi Gras

The Famous King Cake! I chose to make this for Fat Tuesday to celebrate the end of the Mardi Gras season. I have never actually had one before only heard about this traditional dessert served at parties that are usually held once a week during the Mardi Gras Carnival season in New Orleans. A little plastic baby is baked inside and whoever gets the piece with the baby has to provide the King Cake for the next party.

It's more of a bread than a cake. King Cakes are a cinnamon sprinkled dough in the shape of a circle. It's then topped with a lemon flavored icing and sprinkled with purple, green and yellow colored sugars. The Mardi Gras colors each represent something different. Purple represents justice, green is faith and gold represents power. I filled mine with a cream cheese filling and yum I am glad I did! It's delicious! I enjoyed a slice with a cup of coffee and loved every bite!

Yummy Valentine Treats

Love is in the air and so are delicious scents coming from the kitchen. 
Chocolate dipped heart shaped rice crispy treats were made for Brooklynn's Preschool teacher.

For a little afternoon Valentine surprise I made these delicate and oh so delicious puff pastry delights. Yumm-O!

My kids and husband most definitely approved! Come on over everyone we have plenty leftover!
