For the Sweetest Day of the Year...

On the 14th day of the 2nd month of every year we are brought together to cherish the ones we love and what better way to show that love then with candy and chocolates. :P So this year I got inspired from Bakerella (link on the bottom of the page) and made a super adorable heart shaped cookie.

As well as some super sweet chocolate pops.

They turned out wonderful.

Both were delicious and really cute. If you are interested in the recipe for the cookie the link is http://www.bakerella.com/big-love/. Alot of my inspiration has come from Bakerella and as I am still learning and getting used to the craft I duplicate the recipe once then I can make it my own later. :)

Let It Snow..Let It Snow...Let It Snow

These were just some of the Christmas treats I made this year. Chocolate snowflake pops made the idea of snow just a little more bareable and paired with the mini ornaments they were delictable. These few chocolates went along with about 15 different squares and cookies to make the season as sweet as can be. All I had to say was...YUM.

Just Monkeying Around

When I saw the molds for these chocolates I knew I had to have them. They are just so adorable and come out perfect! You can't look at these cutie monkeys and not fall in love with their chocolately goodness. 
Take a look for yourself...

See what I mean? How much cuter can you get, right? Granted the ribbon could have been a different colour but it was all I had laying around at the time :P

Happy Mother's Day

So I had this idea last year for Mother's Day, which I'm not sure how to top this year, but instead of just buying my mom flowers I decided to make her chocolate flowers. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the finished product but I do have a picture of the flower pot I painted that held the bundle of delicious chocolate bouquet. 

The purple, blue and pink roses were simple chocolates I experimented with putting macadamia nuts and almonds in them. Quite tasty :) 
Also, I used the purple roses for a wedding in October 2010 (again unfortunately I don't have a picture) but so I was told they were a hit.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Now these were help fundraise for the 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. I just made vanilla cupcakes with buttercream icing which I tinted pink and iced them together to look like the awareness ribbon. I thought they turned out quite cute. 

 I must admit my photography is not the best. :P

Relay for Life 2010

These chocolates I made for my sister to help her raise money for the Relay for Life in summer of 2010. They were lots of fun to make. These not only included making fun yellow flowered chocolates but I also hand painted little flower pots for them to sit in as well. 
Pictured below. 

And let it begin...

Welcome to my first blog. 
My goal is to create a site filled with delicious sweets to inspire others to have fun with baking, just like I do. I hope you all will enjoy what I make for an event, or just to fufill an urge to make something. I have high hopes for this and I hope everyone will take this new road with me.
