Toffee Crunch Cupcakes

Chocolate toffee crunch cupcakes made for a birthday surprise tomorrow...a rich, chocolate cupcake with a ring of chocolate ganache and toffee bits, topped with caramel swiss meringue buttercream and a caramel drizzle. I sent my husband a picture of these cupcakes in progress today, and he said a guy he works with tried to lick his phone. That's the kind of reaction I like! LOL!

Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint cookies are soft, shortbread-like cookies that have the perfect amount of sweetness. These make a great baby or wedding shower dessert, and the icing colors can be customized to fit any theme or occasion. If I had to choose any cookie, I'd have to say these are my favorite.

Football Cookies!

The Super Bowl is coming up, and there's one more game until we find out who's going to be in the "big show". We like the Atlanta Falcons around here, so I decided I would make some Falcons inspired cookies for good luck. These cookies would be great for a Super Bowl party, or a birthday party, or just a general "get your friends together to watch football" party! I was really happy with how they turned out. And if you're going to have a cookie, might as well have a cupcake with a cute football topper too. :)

Dinosaur Party

Matthew wanted a dinosaur party for his 5th birthday, complete with a dinosaur cake. I decided to make cute dinosaur cake balls for favors. I thought they both turned out so cute!
