Sweet 16 Cake

This was probably the biggest cake I've done yet!
(next to the HMH-362 Ugly Angel cake here
6 inch round chocolate
9 inch round chocolate
12 inch round white (green & pink swirled)

The crazy thing about this cake, though, was that my husband and I were going out of town the weekend they needed it, so I had it ready to go Thursday night, but left the cake in pieces to be assembled by the gal who ordered it! She is a friend of mine, and I was confident she could put it together just fine! So, this is what it looked like when it left my house:
I was thrilled with how it looked all put together!

Baking Baking Baking!

I have been on a baking kick the past few days. Probably because I have company coming and I should be cleaning instead!!!

My middle 2 helped me make some yummy donuts! I got the recipe from my friend Alaina, which she got here. I used the glaze with that recipe, and then found a chocolate glaze recipe here that I wanted to try. The chocolate didn't get as high of ratings as the original glaze from my family. But it was all still yummy! The recipe made about 3 dozen donuts and I made the donut holes as well.
THEN.... I made some Mega Monster Cookies that my very creative (2nd) cousin posted on her blog. If you get a chance, you MUST check out her blog. She has some amazing recipes you HAVE to try. I grew up on a lot of them, and the others are just so great! I haven't tried a recipe I haven't likes YET! Plus, her two little boys are THE cutest things EV-ER!

The kids were very good about eating their supper, which was Feta Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Which I also got from my cousin. THEN, as soon as their last bite was gone, they all ran for a mega monster cookies! You can see how much fun they were to eat!!!

After that, I made some cinnamon rolls, which you can find a to-die-for recipe here. I didn't get pics of those! My first pan disappeared at breakfast this morning, and the other two are in the freezer waiting for our company!

Let me know if you try these out! You won't be disappointed!

Valentine Cupcakes & Cookie Bouquets

Here are the valentine cookie bouquets I made for my son's 2 pre-school teachers. They were huge hit!
And the cupcakes topped with heart cookies (rolled buttercream icing) he brought for treats that week.
I colored some of the white cupcake batter pink and red and swirled it with the white to make some fun colored cupcakes.
