Lolly Pop Cookies

We were having a Kitchen Tea Party at work for one of my friends. 
I thought I would made some of these lolly pops cookies for her. They were a big hit! 

Dora, Boots and Diego

These three small cakes and cupcakes were for my little nephew Lochie and his cousin's Johnny and Grace. They were all turning 2 and loved Dora and Diego some much. So I put both themes together and made this three tier stand of cupcakes. 
The three small cakes on top were chocolate cake dirty iced. The Dora, Boots and Diego figurines on the top of the cakes were made by myself. It was the first time I made figurines. The cupcakes were both vanilla and chocolate flavors. 

Rubber Ducky

These cupcakes were for a boy's baby-shower. 
So I thought it would be cool to do a rubber ducky in a bath. 
The mother to be loved them.  

Licorice Allsorts Cupcakes

Since I can remember, my dad has always loved Licorice Allsorts. 
So for Father Day I decided to make him  Licorice Allsorts cupcakes. 
I think I got my sweet tooth from my father. He loved them!

Save the Date Cookies

These Save the Date cookies are great to give out along with your Save the Date invite. This way your guest get something tasty and different at the same time. The cookies are package in cellophane with a satin bow. With your choice of colours. 

BEE Mine

These were a great cookie for Valentine's Day, something different then the 
normal RED heart. 


Milk & Cookies 1st Birthday theme

These cookies were for a little 1 year olds birthday party. The mum wanted a Milk & Cookie theme. The cookies are made from a shortbread cookie base. 
Very yummy, if I must say so myself..
They were a big hit!

Balloon Cookies

These balloon cookies were one of the first cookies I designed. 
They look really cute packed in two's. 

Baby Shower Cupcakes - Pink and Blue

These cupcakes were made for two ladies at work. We hosted a work Baby-shower for them. There were blue and pink themed cupcakes, as the two ladies didn't know the sex of their babies. 
The flavor of the cupcakes were chocolate with white chocolate chips. Yummy!

Hello, Welcome... 

I thought I'd give you a little insight to my life. I tried to add all of this to my profile. However being new to blogging I didn't know there was a 1200 letter limit. Oh well.

I come from a very creative family. I have always done some sort of craft, from helping with my mum's business Forvever Beautiful, making cards, door signs, invitations to coordinating events. 

I work full time at Unilever as a Visibility Manager for Streets Ice Cream and Lipton Ice Tea. I love my job a lot, it keeps me really busy during the day. However I'm one of those people that need to be doing something all the time to feel like my time is best spent. So doing some sort of craft has always filled up my nights/weekends. 

I've been married to Joe for almost 2 1/2 years. It's the best feeling in the world being married to your best friend /soulmate. 

The first time I started doing cookies was with my sister from when she asked me to help her with her baby-shower cookies. From there I was hooked! 

Not quite sure how much interest I would get I started doing cookies for little events that would come up. To see if anyone would be interested in buying them. Well, the feedback was great and I knew then that I could do this. 

I was asked by one of my clients one day if I can do cupcakes. I said "I'm sure I would be able to, let me look into this for you and get back to you asap". I did a few samples and got my number one fan to try (my husband, Joe). He was more then happy to try...hehe. If he said it was good then it has to be. He said it was great! Now I do both Shortbread Cookies and Cupcakes. I'm loving it!

I will post some of my past creations for you to have a look at.
