Home Baked Goodness

Wow, it's been a long time since my last post. To get started once again I'm just going to share with you some pictures of home baked goodness. Some are recent baking and some are last years baking projects. Though I'm not listing any recipes I will definitely be making comments by my pictures.

This week is the week for LOVE! Valentine's Day is just days away. So make something for that special someone from your heart to theirs. Remember it' the thought that counts.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I made this Mickey Mouse Cookie for Mikey's 2nd birthday. It was made with sugar cookie and homemade marshmallow fondant. I used two 6inch cake pans for the ears and one 10inch cake pan for the face. He loved it!

I made this two tired birthday cake for my sister in law Mary. Simply decorated with a frame for the topper, ribbon & broach for trim and bead wire bent to spell Sixty. Not only did she get cake but an added bonus... the frame. She enjoyed it very much and thanked me many times for it.

I made this simple all American Apple Pie! Added hearts giving that special touch for Valentine's.

This is my Gingerbread House for December 2014.
Usually I would just freehand cut out the patterns. This year I finally made a pattern. The only problem is they're too cute to throw away. Oh well it has to be done. I'll have someone else do it so I want be to sad. There's always next year, right!

 This year my dad turned 75 in January. We had a big pizza party (home made of course we're Italian). I decided to make my Italian Rum Cake. I used a white cake with rum simple syrup, a vanilla cream filling and whipped vanilla topping with a sea of Maraschino Cherries so everyone could have one. A huge swipe of white chocolate for writing the greeting.
