Valentine Fondant Cupcake Toppers

Okay, how stinkin' cute are these! This was my first real attempt with fondant and I think I've found my  new love! It's kind of like playing with Play-doh, except you can eat it! Thank you to Laura from Laura's little Party for featuring these little toppers in her Vintage Valentine Party shoot! 

Here are a few different cupcakes that I've made. 
I think presentation is everything!
Little clown cupcakes with fondant stars. The stars were cut out with my Cricut Cake machine. 

Halloween Pumpkin Bars with spooky spiders!!!

Nightmare Before Christmas

I'm new to this whole blogging thing, but I figure if I can't beat 'em 
then I guess I should join 'em!

I've been baking and creating for many years. I have so many pictures just tucked away in my drawers or in my closet, so I've decided to share them! 

One of the things I love to do is bake and decorate cookies with colored royal icing. It's definitely a time consuming job, but I love the end result. Both of my kids (hubby too) can't wait until I mess one up so that they can eat it! Sad to say, that happens quite often. Anyway, here are a few pictures of my cookie creations. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them!

These little gingerbread houses have to be my favorite cookie of all time. I made these for my friend Sue's annual Christmas Cookie Exchange this past December. They were a hit and tasted soooo good. They were full of edible glitter so they looked like magic!
