Well this is what ive been doing. Last week i made a graduation cake for a girl i know. She did online schooling and also was working. What a great accomplishment!
Then my niece wanted me to make some cookies for her class. We made these cookies that are called i dont have a pic of them. but they were very good. We made them a little different because i didnt have any pb dough on hand. So we made the peanut butter cookies from another recipe from here and we used the coating recipe from the first link.
Then for christmas, i wanted to try some new things. I made some butter cookies(not pictured), they turned out pretty good. the recipe is from pamperd chef, good recipe, dont like the trigger cookie press. I also made a pumpkin roll(yummy!) and shepards pie for my dad. We had a good christmas, now are just waiting for the new year. is the pumpkin roll recipe.

Hi everyone! Hope everyone has been doing well with all this snow, if you are dealing with it that is. We got quite a bit, some drifts that were from 3ft - 6 ft around the house and in the front yard. I always think its looks neat until you have to try and get out in it. We were home from Monday evening til Thursday. It's hard being cooped up and not leaving the house and now i think im catching a cold. Blaahhh.
I did do a little baking yesterday. Didnt feel super good, but got cookies made and a cake baked and decorated by this morning. I was really pleased with the cake. and they also liked it too.

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is having a great weekend and are staying warm. Pictured below is most of the goodies that i made and decorated over the last couple days. Decorating sure takes a bit of time to do, but i like being creative with it. I wanted to note that on the xmas cupcakes with the candy canes on them are sugar cookies decorated with royal icing. I also had made some rice krispie treats and some cinnamon streusel muffins for the fundraiser too. I hope it went well for them today. Have a good rest of the weekend everyone!
