I love a good spiral, and chocolate, and peppermint. hiding the buttercream frosting on the inside of a cake is a sneaky trick that I whole-heartedly embrace. A delightful surprise!
Kenny, at one year, dreams of chasing down wrong-doers under blue skies. Kind of like my brother who is 36 and a mechanic. The first sound he ever made was car noises, the only books he ever read were about cars. It was like he had one path and that was that. Do you know people like that who were just destined to be what they've become?
The killer here, the detail that puts it all over the top and makes even me, who is not a Disney fan, say AWWWWW is the little white circles on the cupcake bases. Just like Mickey's pants buttons! It's tiny touches like this that make me love love love my job every 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.
Clearly someone is welcoming a new little girl into the world here. The matryoshka cookies especially look so motherly and nurturing. They'll take extra good care of a new mother with their iced sweetness. Plenty of my friends have kids but I can easily say that none of them have had such expertly made adorable treats at a shower. Up the ante, friends!
At first I thought this looked like the world's fanciest doorstop or something but then I started drooling and realized that my brain knew it was awesome food so why couldn't the rest of me figure it out? The only way to eat such a fancy dessert is in the tiniest nibbles possible. You have to be careful not to compromise the structural integrity of the stack.
