Christmas Cookies

I enjoy unusual requests (to a certain extent!), and these cookies, given that Christmas is still a couple of months away, fit the bill.  These vanilla bean sugar cookies are for a Christmas-themed dinner party that will be held in Sydney tomorrow night.  Each guest will receive a Christmas-ornament-cookie, and one personalized with their name.  Lucky, eh? 

 

Haley's 21st birthday cake

Sophisticated, pretty and pink.  A chocolate mud cutting cake and matching white chocolate raspberry cupcakes for Haley's 21st birthday dinner.

Esther and Bryan's Wedding

Marble mud cutting cake, orange poppyseed and lime cupcakes for Esther and Bryan's wedding at Tamborine Gardens.  The figurine was from the bride's father, and using it as the main feature of the cutting cake adds a beautiful sentiment.   


A quick snapshot of the cakes before we left Tamborine Gardens.  I must say, it is a stunning venue - glass all around, the whole ceiling draped with white material and a chandelier dripping down from the center.  Plus, for the first time, I had no one vacuuming around me while setting up the cakes!
