Yummy V-Day treats!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I made these delicious cookies to get into the spirit using the recipe located here...

They were really fun and surprisingly easy to make. The only issue I ran into was that the batter was a little thick and hard to get into the piping bag. I think it was because I doubled the recipe but only had one bottle of red food coloring. I used that bottle and a half teaspoon of gel coloring instead and it didn't make much of a difference.

See you for St. Patrick's Day!
Love, Irma

Happy Valentine's Day!

We haven't posted in a while, but January was just so busy!! Last weekend, Emilie and Irma made a birthday cake for their cousin Cara. We thought we'd double the recipe to serve 24, but I guess the servings were huge because the recipe for 24 made a big cake, 24 cupcakes, and 6 mini heart cakes!! We've never used fondant before, but thought we'd try it out on our heart cakes. It looked so pretty!! The cake was a yummy chocolate cake with cookies & cream frosting made by mixing crushed Famous Amos into vanilla buttercream frosting. mmm!!
