Rose Topped Cake Pops!

You are going to be happy and maybe a little sad when you see this post.  I think you'll be happy when you see how pretty my rose cake pops turned out, but you might be sad I just realized I don't have any photos of the process.  Although it might have been a little hard to get a photo of me in action piping the rose.  I really need to get a you tube life, right?  I thought about "you tubing it" and even had this little stand to hold my camera.  Had is the key word.  I dropped my lap top on the stand and broke off the top, yep, broke it completely off.  Fortunately my laptop was not damaged, it's a monster laptop and can pretty much hold it's own.
 
So for now, I'll just show you the pretty rose topped cake pops and try and explain how I made them.  And maybe someday I'll buy another stand for my you tube decorating debut.

Dipped and Decorated!

You know what they say, everything is better with chocolate.  Or did I make that up?  I'm pretty sure you know by now how I love chocolate, right?  And it doesn't have to be over the top, time consuming recipes to make me happy.  In fact, you'll see exactly what I mean...

Edible Rose Topiary Trees!

Today's the day you'll want to see what I have in store for you.  If I could choose a favorite from the party, this might be it, although I may have several favorites from the party.  Not only were they perfect for a Shabby Chic party, they would be an adorable addition to your mother's day table.  You haven't forgotten Mom have you?
 
When I found the tiny little pots, I fell in love, everything miniature is the cutest, right? You didn't know they make flower pots so small did you?  I'm not sure what they are for, probably gardening or something.  Now, let's get this straight, you know my terra cotta pots will never be filled with anything that actually grows...just say'in.  Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let me show you what I planted...or should I say baked?

Shabby Chic Oreo's!

While working on the party, the Oreo's sat undecorated for a while.  With so many options, I didn't know which way to turn.  Roses, lace, sprinkles, hand painted...the list goes on and on.  Who knew an Oreo could cause so much excitement, besides eating them of course.
 
Finally it came time to make a decision and stick to it.  Sometimes (okay most of the time) I say, oh I should of, or I could of, but this time I decided to got for it and not look back.  Then the little shabby chic bunting Oreo's were created.

50th Birthday Suckers

Really, you don't have to turn fifty to make the yummy chocolate suckers I'm about to show you.  I'm pretty sure you'll like them at any age.  And I wanted to get them all dressed up for the party, isn't that the first thing you think of when you're invited to a party?  What you're going to wear?

Shabby Chic Birthday Party!

Well folks, it's been awhile since I've hosted a party and now it's time to celebrate...

A 50th Birthday! 

It's been years of planning and collecting things for this party, when I would see something I thought would work, I grabbed it and packed it away.  When the time came, I started going through everything I had packed away, so many surprises, I felt like it was my birthday.

Before I show you the party,  let's start with the invitations, each hand made with love.  Well, the first ten were made with love and then the last twenty five were just made.  Just kidding.

The Beatles Themed Cookies!

This could very well be the theme for my birthday, not that it's going to happen any time soon, but this is it..."When I'm Sixty Four", a Beatles Themed Birthday Party!  When a gal ordered cookies from me and told me the theme, I LOVED the idea.  Her husband is turning 64 and the theme is "When I'm Sixty Four" from the song by The Beatles.  Isn't that just the best idea ever??  Now I can't wait to be 64.  Just Kidding.
 
I didn't go to the party, but my cookies did.  I wonder if they laugh at me when they head out the door on their way to the party, leaving me behind to clean up the mess.  I'll probably never know, but I do know I loved how they turned out.  Laughing or not, here they are.

Striped Easter Egg Cookies

Today I'm using my egg cutter...to make egg cookies.  Although my plan was to make beautifully detailed cookies, I was shopping for a phone instead.  And when I say shopping for a phone, I mean buying and returning five phones before I finally got the right one.  Again, I'm showing how old school I am because most people don't have land lines, right?  I won't bore you with the details, but instead of decorating beautiful cookies, I spent hours online, then driving to and from the store, buying and returning phones.
 
It took me days to finally get the right phone, wait...my latest one is now charging, so I'm not really sure if it's the right one, but I have hopes. And while my phones were charging I was decorating simple striped egg cookies.

Easter Basket Cookies

You've all heard the saying, "Don't put your eggs in one basket" right?  Well, today I'm telling you to make all your eggs into baskets!  With over a hundred Easter cookie cutters, I'm using a simple egg shaped cookie cutter to create these little baskets.  Because you all have an egg shaped cookie cutter, right?

Moss Covered Chocolate Bunnies!

You have got to see what I did with my chocolate bunnies.  Besides eat them...okay, I haven't eaten them yet, but their days are numbered.  It helps they're so cute, I don't want to take a bite.  What I want to do, is show you because you're going to agree with me, I just know it.
 
What started out as a mini moss bunny, turned into the cutest moss bunny.  I'll tell you more about the mini moss bunnies in a minute, but for now let's focus on this little guy!
