Valentine’s Day Cookies

I made a bunch of goodies for Valentine’s Day this year!!  Some cookies for my kids and husband, some for the kids’ teachers and some for my customers.  Also made chocolate covered strawberries and cupcakes, but I’ll leave that for another post.  I only took one “good” photo of the cookies – but I thought I would share the others anyway.  They came out adorable don’t you think?

Easter Dessert Table

I did a ton of baking for Easter this year as we had a pretty big bash to celebrate the holiday.  It turned out to be a beautiful day and a great time was had by all!  Take a peek at what was on the dessert menu:

Carrot cake, with cream cheese buttercream, topped with a bunny-shaped butter cookie;

Flower pot cookie cupcakes (they were pound cake cupcakes with vanilla buttercream);

Our signature butter cookies shaped as Easter eggs, bunnies and flowers;

Mini cheesecakes;

Mini Key Lim Pies (they’re in the back there…didn’t get a great shot of them); and,

Mini caramel-filled brownies topped with chocolate buttercream.

Happy Spring everyone!!

Are you looking for a quick Valentine treat for your kiddos that you can have done by the time they get home from school?  Look no further – I’ve done a little research and found these two treats which are both quick, easy and don’t involve any baking at all!

These first treats are made from Oreo Cakesters …just use a small heart cookie cutter and you are done. I don’t think that can get any easier!
