I had just enough dough left over from making those Lydia dress cookies to make the first letter of each of my girls first names. I surprised them with them after lunch as a special dessert. They were thrilled. I used all the colors of icing I had on hand because for my girls, the more colorful - the better! They might look a bit tacky to most people, but not to my crazy girls! (You should see the cookies they made themselves one day as a craft project! Talk about tacky cookies!)
I needed a purple snack to take to Sunday School the week I taught about Lydia, the seller of purple cloth. I had extra cookie dough on hand already, so I threw these together the night before. My class full of little girls loved them!
This cake was made for a little boy's first birthday and was actually my first paid order! Woohoo! This was such a fun cake to make - makes me wish I had a little boy to make it for. I wonder if any of my princesses would go for a lion theme??? The cake is covered in fondant and all the accents are fondant as well. The grass is buttercream.
This little lion was my first attempt making a 3d figure like this out of fondant. I thought he turned out really cute!
This was the smash cake I made to go with the theme. It's all buttercream to make for easier (and messier) smashing!
