Endless Love {ha!}

I met April over three years ago, and having her as a friend is like having a cyclone in my life.  She constantly whirls around, but when she stops for a breath, one can see her big, big heart.  So this one is for you, April.  I hope you and Dene sing Endless Love to each other forever.

PS, I made this cake for April and Dene's vow renewal.  It is a simplified version of the wedding cake they had ten years ago.

Balloon and ice cream cookies

Sugar cookies, made on a whim :-)

Ava's Cookies

Vanilla bean sugar cookies that I sent to Cairns for Ava's first birthday party.  They formed part of a dessert table with a pink, dark pink and white theme.  The flowers I made for the cookies were to match the pastel-iced cupcakes.

Bridesmaid Cookies

Will you be my bridesmaid?

Vanilla bean sugar cookies in a gown shape.
Cookie design based on a sketch given to me by the bride.

Zack's Robin Hood cake and cookies

Robin Hood and Little John
runnin' through the forest
jumpin' fences, dodgin' trees
an' tryin' to get away
contemplatin' nothin'
but escape an' fin'lly makin' it.

Oo-de-lally, oo-de-lally
golly, what a day.

My memories of Robin Hood, master of the bow, champion of the poor, are very Disney-fied.

Chocolate mudcake is a spin-off from an enchanted woodlands cake that I made last year.  The design was based on Zack's Robin Hood party invitation.

Matching vanilla bean sugar cookie archery targets make yummy party favours

Ladybird cupcakes

Bright and chirpy birthday cupcakes.  Perfect for a ladybird-garden party.
