It’s been a while since my last post. Village Sweets created a Baptism Cake for a cutie pie “Lily-Rose”. I made some Royal Icing Roses and painted them a soft iridescent Pink, roses to go with her name… Gumpaste Bow and a Gumpaste Baby, I even added a cute ruffled diaper. I draped a rosary across the cake as well. Vanilla Cake and a Swiss Buttercream Icing, covered in an off-white Fondant.
(This cake idea was from Sophie Lacourciere, via Pinterest).
Village Sweets was commissioned to make an Airplane cake for a bachelorette party. Woohoo my favorite, making theme cakes! I hope she was happy with the end result and of course the taste of the moist chocolate cake and buttercream icing. Thank you Patricia C. ! I hope Andi loved her cake 🙂
Playing around with different designs for some cupcakes. Ideas and possibilities are endless. Cupcakes make great favors for parties, weddings and other events, especially themed occasions. You can easily just go crazy decorating them. Here is a sample of some of my many cupcake designs, they are doing their best on the “Catwalk”.

Easter will soon be hopping upon us, so I have been thinking up what I want my cupcakes to look like on my Easter table. Hmmm, sooooo I have come up with a garden trellis with little roses! I made up some Royal Icing roses and decorated my cupcakes garden style. I think all the pastel colors made it look so springy!
My Royal Icing Roses are available in my Etsy shop:
A new twist on an old favorite cookie. Ummm the combination sounded great to me. I have apple slices dipped in peanut butter and it tastes great, so I thought, why not a little apple pie with a little peanut butter cookie? Peanut butter? homemade apple pie? Yup! I am going to try it! I have to say, I quickly gobbled one up almost right out of the oven, oh my! Soooo good. This will definitely be a new item for Village Sweets cookie list.
The weather has certainly been a downer here. Our winter has been, well to put it midly SUCKY! When the sun is out, it’s the darn deep freeze, when the temperatures are reasonable, it’s rain and ice, the damp makes you grumpy and you swear for dear life that you make it down your driveway (aka ice rink) safely. Oh well, as I wait for a brighter day I am going to bake! So this week at Village Sweets, cookies are what have been coming out of the oven. So many cookies, Molasses Spice – Our delicious Scotch Shortbread – Chocolate Chip with White Chocolate and Caramel.
All our cookies are available at our Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/VillageSweets
Valentines day is coming, our cookies come packaged or boxed with Valentines Flair! Give your sweetie a delicious Village Sweets Cookies gift, they will adore you even more for it!!

Briar Roses are just beautiful. Adding them to this cake has made it an elegant and simple look. All these roses were made of gum-paste and brushed with a little edible petal dust. I also included some Stephanotis flowers for some added drama. I finished the cake with an edging of small and medium size beading. I think it turned out quite nicely. It’s been out too long and it’s mellllllltingggg… :O So annoying when the weather just does not want to co-operate!
Below is a picture of a Stargazer Lily that I just completed, which has also been fashioned with gum-paste and painted with some edible petal dust. Just thought I would add it the photos, lol.
