It’s 12:55 am, I’m waiting for my test run ribs to finish cooking, I’ve burnt a batch of barbecue sauce and I’m tired.
Therefore, I can’t think of any witty title for this post, so it will be Untitled.
After a big trip to the nearest B.J.’s (over an hour away in NH) and a not so great experience at what I thought would be a really good little bakery/cafe, I have to say I’m already exhausted. For those of you not “in the know”, Dave and I host a big BBQ bash every Summer, and it’s this coming Saturday. I’m not sure how this is going to work out, I don’t feel prepared at all. We have about 70 people coming here and I’m hoping that I can get everything made by Friday night.
I made some pretty cute cookies last week.
As some of you may know, I’m not a big fan of “boy” cookies, but these dragons are cute. I dig em’.
The dragon cookies were ordered along with “Princess” gowns. I used opal sugar for the skirt and bodice, with a brighter pink detail and little pale pink “pearls” at the waist and the bottom of the skirt. I think any little girl would be into these ball gowns.
I’m also working on a project of 100 pairs of “happy pants”. These are some of the designs I’m thinking of. The polka dots are suppose to look embroidered and the floral ones are just too complex for the size of the job I think.
This is another design that I’m pretty sure we’ll be using. Turqoise and green pants with green dots dropped into the icing. Cute and most definitely “happy”!
I don’t think I posted this yet, but isn’t it just the most swanky cake stand?? I love it! An early Birthday gift from Jen.
I made this cake for a client last week. It’s a 6 inch double layer chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. Very simple. Just my speed.
The shoppe on Saturday. A big thanks to the TWO customers who came in on Saturday.
I’m sure glad we paid $300 to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. Not one person we met there has come by. Well worth the money spent. Don’t you think??
