Happy 5th Birthday Big Girl!

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. We just got back from a fabulous, fun filled week at Disney World. Yep, you read that right, a whole week. I was a little hesitant as previously we had only spent a day or two at a time there, but it was great. It was our first time taking our 2 year old but, not surprisingly, she was a rock star.

So now that I'm back home I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I already have one order completed for this week so I figured I'd take some time and show you what I'm been up to. Before we went to Disney World it was my eldest daughter's fifth birthday. I'm always so anal about taking pictures of all the cookies and cakes I make and I completely forgot about taking a photo of, quite possible, the cutest cookie I've ever made. As requested by the birthday girl, I made birthday cake cookies. The only pics I have are from the party on the folded plastic table cloth already wrapped for the party. You'll see that we also gave out those rubber band bracelets with the cookies. They made for cute packaging and boy is someone making a fortune off those somewhere.

And of course I had to make her birthday cake. We bought the cake for the party, I just got too busy with her cookies and other orders that week to put any real effort into a cake. For her family party I made a princess castle cake for her. I've always wanted to try this so I went for it. As you can see, there's a reason why I don't do cakes professionally. They're fun and a challenge, and I think they turn out cute enough, but I wouldn't dream of trying to charge someone for these. Maybe in the future with tons of practice... At least it tasted delicious! It was a marble cake filled with homemade chocolate ganach. Yum!
