Cookies…Cookies…Cookies

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!!

Fresh Basket of Flowers

Making a cake can be so much fun, especially when it comes to design.  Put your mind to it and you can fashion a cake to whatever shape you like.  I love fresh flowers, especially from my garden.  An inspiring thought came to me to create a basket of fresh flowers complete with a ribbon wrapped handle and a pretty bow.  The flowers were made from Royal Icing and Gum paste.  The bow and ribbon were also gum paste.  I fashioned my handle with a Rice Krispie’s recipe.  The cake, a delicious moist Pumpkin Spice Cake and an Ultimate Vanilla Buttercream Frosting completes my basket weave piped design.
