Baby Shower

I have started doing custom desserts & candy buffets. I love doing these because I love candy!
This was for my sister's baby shower. We had cupcakes, rice krispy treats, 7 layer bars,dipped marshmallows, dipped oreo's ( these were everyones favorites), and a whole bunch of blue and silver candies. I made the signs and the paper poms. I also took pinup style pictures of my sis for her gift and used them for decoration.

French Macarons

These are my new favorite little treat. I have never had one until a few months ago. I heard of them, but didn't give them much thought until I had an order for some. So after a lot of research I found the perfect recipe. It was the best cookie I have ever tasted! If you don't know what a french macaron is it's not made of coconut. It is a little sandwiched cookie made of almond flour and maringueIt's a little bit chewy and kind of melts in your mouth. Then you can fill it with all kinds of stuff like buttercream, ganache and jams. My favorite is filled with chocolate ganache. Mmmmm I think I need to make some now!
