Tiny Cookie Cakes!

Posted by jenmeeko at 1:09 PM 0 comments
I was asked to make cookie wedding favors for a friend's recent garden-party themed wedding, and when I saw this idea on Martha Stewart's website I just couldn't resist giving it a try. Tiny wedding cakes made of stacked sugar cookies!


Each stack is made of two 2.5" rounds, two 2" rounds, and two 1" rounds held together with a soft royal icing. Each "cake" was adorned with handmade gumpaste flowers in the wedding colors (took a period of weeks to make!) which were attached with royal icing. Each "cake" was placed on a tiny 4" silver cake circle and 4" white doilies and then stuffed in a cello bag and tied up with sheer black ribbon and a matching tag. I made 130 in all, and with the help of some good friends I pulled off getting each one bagged and tagged in time for the wedding. They definitely took over my kitchen but looked cute at the wedding!

This was a first birthday cake for a good friend's niece. The cake was designed to match the party decor/scrapbooking papers. Love how this one turned out!

A Superhero Firefighter 4th Birthday

Posted by jenmeeko at 4:01 PM 0 comments




I made this cake for my coworker's son for his superhero/fireman themed 4th birthday. His birthday party was held at a local fire station (how cool is that?), so the cake features a fireman's hat, ladders, hydrants, and of course a little dalmation! The superhero element is his name in a cool superhero font to match the party invitations. All decorations are fondant. Cake was vanilla/vanilla and chocolate/chocolate. Yummy!
