Pillow Cake

This was a special request from the birthday girl herself. Designed and described in great detail in email to me about what she would like her 11th birthday cake to look like. Eye mask- Colors- Polka Dots- Flavor!

I hope she and her sleepover friends enjoy it!

Teacher Gift from Hallmark

Hallmark has these really nice tall mugs you can decorate with a special marker. Then you bake the decorated mug at 300 degrees F for 35 minutes to set the marker designs. This makes your mug dishwasher safe and microwavable without losing your designs!!!

As far as I know, it only comes with a black marker, so I kept the details simple, and then decorated my sugar cookies with pink icing and matching flowers and hearts. A little tissue paper and curling ribbon add a little more color and flare!
Then it was off to "Miss Thompson" on the last day of school!

Happy Birthday Little Brother!!! GO HAWKS!

Today is my little brother's 25th birthday! I am a little behind in getting these done. I wanted to get these shipped off so he had them on his birthday, but if it's any consolation, I'm sending them ON his birthday.

**Melissa, this is a before picture, I hope they get there and at least resemble these!!!

Sandwich Cookies

I've seen this recipe all over lately on the blogs around here. The cake mix sandwich cookies!
1 cake mix *most types work
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
Mix together and bake at 350 just until set and tops start to crack.

Let cool, then sandwich two cookies with desired filling, I used my buttercream icing.
The cookies are so moist, and taste like chocolate cake cookies!!! YUM!
I used some leftover colored icing I had sitting around, so mine were pink, purple, & yellow! My daughter took these to school today for her end of the year class party!
