Eye Candy of The Week

Seriously, there are not enough hours in the day. Between work, party planning, cakepop orders and everyday life this week as been extremely hectic. I plan on unwinding tonight by enjoying some delicious Mexican food from my favorite spot. Then tomorrow it's back to running around like a mad woman. Hope your weekend is a great one!

Food Porn of The Week: Truly Mexican Cookbook Preview

This is the ULTIMATE in Food Porn.  Roberto SantibaƱez releases his new cookbook, Truly Mexican this week.  Watch the preview to get a feel of the book.  Mexican is my favorite so I will have to go out and buy his cookbook ASAP.  Be sure to wipe the drool off your keyboard after you are done watching.

 My Easter orders are finally complete. You don't understand how relieved I am. This labor of love would not have been possible without the help of my beautiful sister Ellie. Sister, your decorating skills are top notch. I definitely could not have finished these on time without you. Thanks again!

Well, the work week has come to a close. Yay! I have a TON of baking ahead of me this weekend. I will definitely share some pictures.  Before my Bake-a-palooza I plan on having a few drinks with family tonight. The de-stressing is much needed indeed. Have a great weekend!

1st Birthday Cakebite Pops

I was hired to make these cakebite pops for a first birthday party. White chocolate "wrappers" and pink "frosting" created the perfect backdrop for pastel sprinkles and # 1s made out of fondant. The flavor selections were devils food, red velvet, and birthday cake (vanilla confetti). The perfect party favor to celebrate such a milestone occasion.

Cupcake Pops

 I made these cupcake pops for a 3rd birthday party.  What could be cuter than a tiny cupcake on a stick?  These fit perfectly in the hands of any three year old. ; )
