I keep trying to fool myself into thinking it's almost Spring when really it's the deep dark depths of Winter with no end in sight. It's still blustery and cold and dim and I should still be wearing a scarf even if I don't want to. If I had a plate of lovely hat and mitten cookies on the table, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.

When I was a kid my mom had a cookbook all about how to make creative cakes with nothing but a round cake pan, a bundt pan and a square pan. She made caterpillars and castles and Snoopy and all sorts of amazing creations but I don't think I ever saw a donut. It's so simple it just slipped under the radar.

These guys seem a little hesitant to get all excited about Spring and Easter and all that. Kitty is full on terrified, bunny is just kinda going with the flow, ram is taking things head on and frog is just chiiiiiiiiill man.

Happy Valentine's Day! Of course on Epicute hearts are always in season, but these cookies in particular are so exquisitely made, I felt today was the right day to share them with you. Perfect icing, perfect piping, perfect love. I hope you all have a love-filled day!

Kate and Wills had a seriously fantastic decorator for their epic royal wedding cake. It's fruitcake which I don't really understand, as fruitcake is just not tasty. But it is incredibly gorgeous and gigantic: 8 tiers of different flavored fruitcakes, each with a different decorating scheme. I'm mad impressed.

Oh man is there a lot going on here. Those cupcakes alone look light and moist and delightful and then you go and pile on some pretty, fluffy, buttery icing mmmmmmm. And THEN you make little heart cookies and you ice them BUT you use MORE icing to make them all fancy and swirly and amazing. Then you PUT IT ON THE CUPCAKE! I'm so exhausted. I can't eat. I need a nap.
