Po, the Dragon Warrior!

According to Master Oogway, "there are no accidents" in the world; the manifestation of these Po cake truffles is also not by accident. They are here to celebrate one special boy's 7th birthday. Each Po has a different expression, and it's also no accident I put them on a bamboo platter for the photograph. Remember that the ultimate lesson in "Kung Fu Panda" is that things become special if you believe them to be, and I hope this is one very special birthday! Happy Birthday Ian!!!

National Nurses Week!

National Nurses Week is celebrated every year,  from May 6 (National Nurses Day) through May 12 (Florence Nightingale's birthday and International Nurses Day).  This year, we created traditional nurse's hats to celebrate the hard work and dedication of a very special group of nurses.  The white hats are made of red velvet cake with cream cheese filling, and the chocolate hats are chocolate cake with hazelnut filling.  I can't think of a better way to spoil a nurse or two! 

If there is an extraordinary nurse in your life that you would like to thank, please tell us about him/her in our comments section.  As for us, we would like to send out a heartfelt thank you to the nurses at Talbert Surgical Associates and to all the nurses who dedicate themselves to patient care around the world.  HAPPY NATIONAL NURSES WEEK!

One of our favorite cake flavors is Cookies 'n Cream.  There's just something really special about an Oreo and the way it tastes, which is exactly why this post is solely dedicated to Oreos.  The top picture features Oreo cake truffles (crushed Oreo with cream cheese frosting), and the bottom two pictures are my sister's Crazy-for-Oreo creations.  These scrumptious treats start with an Oreo cookie topped with a layer of Oreo cake truffle (crushed Oreo with cream cheese), and then the entire thing is dipped in cocoa candy melt and topped with crushed Oreos for the perfect little crunch.  The cropped picture on the right looks so yummy I want to take a bite every time I look at it!

Ghirardelli Graduates

We will be making these for my nephew's graduation, but I'm also dedicating them to all the upcoming graduates!  The graduation hats are Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and the fondant tassles are secured with yellow M & M's.  As for the apples, I just wanted to post them up again because apples seem to go so well with school-related themes, and the red seems to balance out the flesh-tone pictures. Smile, Graduates!  :D

Teacher Appreciation Week

Creating a spin on the traditional apple, my sister made these delicious red apples for Teacher Appreciation Week, which was last week.  I remember most of my teachers growing up, and among the most memorable are Mrs. Feher (junior high) and Professor Schwartz (university). 

 The inside reveals red velvet cake with cream cheese filling:

I love the perspective of the photo below.
Thank you to all the educators for your dedication and hard work each and every day! ;)

Introducing Our New Line of Lingerie......"Sexy & Delicious"!

Here is a sneak peak of our new line of lingerie, "Sexy & Delicious"! These were for a zebra and hot pink lingerie theme for a bachelorette party in Vegas (perfect!), with red velvet and cream cheese frosting on the inside.   

I'll be the first to admit that when we started making these, I felt a little weird with my young niece and nephew around.  However, in a flash of desperation, I replied "bikinis!" when asked "what are you and mommy making?"  I think it did the trick...phew!


I'm also thinking that these would be fun for Valentine's Day.....Lingerie and sweets all wrapped up in one...can't go wrong with that!

To New Beginnings...

Ironically, the collection of sad faces below were requested as a farewell gift for a co-worker.  Even though everyone was happy for his new job, everyone was also sad that he was leaving the company, so it was suggested that we create a box of treats with a variety of sad faces.  It was such a cute and great idea, I got a little carried away and added different hair styles and tears.  I love it when people have a sense of humor! :D
