Logo Cookies

I have been extremely busy baking this summer and with both boys home, this doesn't give me much time to update my website! I have recently been given the opportunity to create some cookies for new hires for my friend Danielle's company Lateral Link. These are some of the sample cookies I worked on...I love their colors!

A few other logo cookies I have been working on for clients

This is me and my BFF Jessica! We have known each other since we were in the first grade and now we are both stay at home mommies living out in Corona. Jessica is expecting baby #3 in the beginning of June and since every baby deserves a little celebration, we decided to throw her a baby shower luncheon.
Of course we had to do a fun dessert table for the guests. Becca (another childhood friend) helped me with the goodies for the table.
Vanilla cupcakes with pink frosting (of course). My mom made the cute cupcake toppers...the stickers were ordered from ETSY.
Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting!! I'm craving one right now!
Some of the cookies I made for baby Madison
Some of the beautiful desserts Becca made...she has great piping skills!!

Me, Jessica and Becca! Can't wait to meet little Madison!

I've been so busy this past month with orders that I have neglected my blog! A few weeks ago, my college roommate Kristy was married at Wilson Creek Winery. I had the privilege of making her wedding cake and cupcakes!! Phil made the beautiful cupcake stand and even helped set up for the wedding! Thanks Kristy for letting me be a part of your special day!!

Giraffe Baby Shower

Last weekend was my friend Lorri's baby shower for her first baby. She knew that she wanted a giraffe theme for her cake and cookies so we decided on this:

My first attempt at sculpting a giraffe fondant topper
And matching cookies for her table centerpieces:
My gift to Lorri was a diaper cake (of course!) I love the finished product but they sure do take a lot of time to put together!!!
My friend Tiffany makes matching wipe cases and burp cloths...which is what I used for the bottom tier and cake can check her out here

Tea Bridal Shower Cake

I made this cake for Cami's bridal shower last weekend. She is the daughter of an aide in Ashton's class. The theme for the shower was a garden tea party. I got a chance to check out her shower decor when I delivered the cake and it was absolutely beautiful!! Cami sent me the sweetest email, I had to share:
Dear Marissa,
Thank you sooooo much for my beautiful bridal tea party cake!!! I have a thank-you note in the mail coming your way so I won't gush as much here, but seriously the cake made my day- it totally made the party a party! Who parties without cake?!?

What would St. Patrick's day be without green cookies?? I know St. Patrick's day is almost over but along with my baking orders, taking Parker to his My Gym class and attempting to remove a wall full of black sharpie marker courtesy of my 1 year was a crazy day! Anyways, these cookies are for a "go green" bunco party! Normally I try to take pics of my cookies before I bag them but I was in a hurry to get them done!! Happy St. Patrick's day all!!!

I really think I have a new love for ladybugs!! They are so cute and girly!! My friend from college, Meagan asked me to make a ladybug cake for her daughter's first birthday...I came up with this idea and made a matching smash cake for her little one! I love the way the ladybugs came out...but the mom in me kept thinking the whole time that Meagan was going to have one messy birthday girl after she dug right into her bright red ladybug smash cake!!! Hope it wasn't too messy Meagan!!

Monkey birthday party!!!

When my good friend Amy asked me to make a cake for the monkey themed birthday party she was planning for her son Chad's 1st birthday I was so excited because I had seen the cutest monkey cakes and couldn't wait to create one myself!! She also had me do matching favors...I did monkeys on sticks and big round cookies to match the cake!! Seriously, how cute is little Chad digging in to his smash cake?? I don't think I've ever seen a 1 year old eat so much cake at one sitting!!! The party was a lot of fun and I had so much fun making this cake!! Thanks Harding family!!!
