This week I got a last minute request for some cupcakes and peanut butter poppers from a good friend of mine. It was her daughter's birthday and she just wanted something pretty and simple. Since the party didn't really have a theme or anything, I decided to go with butterflies - they're so pretty! Luckily I had a cancellation this week, so I was able to accommodate my friend. The poppers were for her husband, who LOVES them (who doesn't?).
My oven was kept busy with a bunch of projects that just kind of sprang up - which was good because I had a last minute ccancellation Last week it was the birthday of one of the original supporters of OFGB. This peanut butter poppper eenthusiasthas been a fan of my work for many years and always supported my eeffortsin many ways. I wanted to come up with something that was completely over the top for him. The bottom layer is rich devil's food chocolate cake, then a layer of my secrete peanut butter popper filling following by a rich and creamy cheesecake layer and topped with a ggorgeouschocolate ganash.
I was also asked to make some mini cupcakes for my client to pass out at the office. There are 8 dozen of the little beauties and I would bet that every little one of them disappeared. Too good not to eat them like pop corn!
And if that wasn't enough, I also made some cranberry and plain tea biscuit for my weekly team meeting at work.
I made some more beautiful, individually hand decorated wedding dress cookies this week. Each of the 50+ dresses are uniquily designed, and I was happy to see some pretty new designs emerge, but i wish I had more pictures of the 80 designs I came up with last year. The cookies are packaged in cello bags and tied with a pretty shimmery ribbon that I found.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
